The Asylum is the studio behind such cheap rip-offs as "Transmorphers" and "Snakes on a Train." It's now back with "Jack the Giant Killer," which is a rip-off of Bryan Singer's upcoming "Jack the Giant Slayer." And today we have a trailer for the new movie, showing that it also borrows from Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim." Check it out below.
Plot: A giant beanstalk brings Jack to a land in the clouds filled with snarling, evil beasts. When the creatures make their way to Earth, Jack must figure out how to get back down before they destroy his hometown and everyone in it.
"Jack the Giant Killer" is directed by Mark Atkins (Sand Sharks), and stars Jane March (Color of Night) and Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire). It's set to be released on VOD and DVD/Blu-ray on March 12th, just eleven days after Singer's "Jack the Giant Slayer" hits theaters.

Slow movie news day i guess. Asylum rip-off looks good. Now THAT's a headline because it's unexpected. End sentence length tutorial in basic journalism, WP. Next lesson will cost you.

Looks like Forrest Gump compared to how sh*tty the original film is going to be.

Oh, give me a break...calling this a "rip off" and b&m'ing about how it's copying parts of Pacific Rim and a callous attempt to cash in on Jack the Giant Slayer are like saying that Hollywood is a temple of virtue that never copies and rips off books. Did your reviewer actually watch the whole film, or were they just trying to score points with the producers of JTGS? Or his he/she (I notice they didn't bother to sign their name to this castigation) of the opinion that the only people who should be allowed to make movies are those with the big budgets? I've just now finished watching JTGKiller on Netflix (12-13-13), and while it won't be confused with Shakespeare or even JTGS, its lavishly produced contemporary, I for one think that its earnest band of actors and crew did a nice job of story telling, and I hope to heaven that we as a nation never completely succ*mb to the kind of snobbery to which your reviewer so clearly embraces!
