'Jack the Giant Slayer' trailer: Now with a two-headed giant, and Ian McKellan! -- VIDEO

The last time we saw a trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer, it was Dec. 2011, and director Bryan Singer’s re-imagining of the “Jack and the Beanstalk” fairy tale was called Jack the Giant Killer. In the interim, the movie was pushed from June 2012 to March 1, 2013; many more visual effects shots of the fearsome, cloud-dwelling giants have been completed; and, from the sound of things, Singer’s regular muse Sir Ian McKellan was brought on board to lend his commanding cadences to some ominous fe fi fo fumming.

Footage Screened: The panel began with the latest behind-the-scenes video blog dispatch — which Peter Jackson has been posting regularly on The Hobbit‘s official Facebook page — on the final five days of production. We’ll post it on EW.com when it goes live, but there was a wealth of lovely moments, including interviews with Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, and Stephen Fry, all of whom seem to figure more prominently in the second film, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, which includes the climatic confrontation with the dragon Smaug.
