The first trailer for ‘Defiance’ has now hit online! Developed by Rockne O’Bannon, who has written and produced sci-fi shows such as ‘Farscape’, ‘V’, Seaquest 2032’, and ‘Alien Nation’.
The series is set in the near future, where aliens known as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home. However, when they reached Earth they discovered that despite a prolonged negotiation with the government on Earth they were not welcome. Rather than turn away, they began a war with the humans. During the war, the Votans drop terraformers on the planet and transform the surface of the planet; scorching the earth and covering the planet in dust and debris. After decades of war, a ceasefire is declared and both sides focus on survival on this new almost alien planet.
The series largely revolves around the character of Jeb Nolan. With the war now over, he returns to his hometown of St Louis. Jeb takes up a position as the Chief Lawkeeper in Defiance, so he can protect the town from dangerous clashes between humans and aliens.
Defiance is attempting to do what hasn't quite worked before: melding the world of television and video games. A massive multiplayer online game of the same name will tie into the series.
Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene.
Steven Seagal went blowhard on blowhard with HDNet’s Michael Schiavello recently, and previously, in the 30-second promo, we learned that Steven Seagal always carries a gun, has been shot at, and thinks Jean-Claude Van Damme is a joke. Now, the full, 50-minute interview – the longest Seagal interview ever, according to Schiavello, whose show’s intro is a rap song about how awesome he is – is online in its entirety, and contains even more Earth-shattering revelations. Those revelations include, but are not limited to:
Steven Seagal knows the real story behind Iran-Contra.
Steven Seagal knows the real story behind Brandon Lee’s death on the set of The Crow.
Steven Seagal used to be friends with Jackie Chan but not anymore.
Steven Seagal can and possibly has killed people.
Steven Seagal deserved Al Gore’s Academy Award and Nobel Peace Prize but he was too ahead of his time.
Steven Seagal has saved many people’s lives.
Vladimir Putin is a great leader, a real man, and a true martial artist.
On how he got his start in martial arts while working at a restaurant called The Wagon Wheel:
“One of the cooks there was a guy named Sakamoto-Sensei, and he was a Shotokan guy, and an Okinawan Shurin guy, and he saw that when I was washing the dishes and moving around that I moved very fast.”
He literally learned martial arts from a restaurant chef. Explains a lot, doesn’t it?
“I did learn a lot of mystical things that a lot of other people didn’t because they were only interested in learning how to fight.”
So Steven Seagal is interested in mysticism? You don’t say…
Steven Seagal knows ancient killing techniques:
“I believe that Oh sensei had something called oku den which meant the secret style, or the secret arts, that he wouldn’t teach almost anyone, which did have to do with killing people and did have to do with techniques that could take a life and so forth and so on.
And then after his apparent enlightenment, he took those out of his teaching. But I did know the old people who did know them and I made those a part of my style. And I made the conviction that aikido has to be able to work against anyone in any style who wants to come and kill you and hurt you or your family or your friends.”
He adds that he was able to practice his techniques in the streets, as his dojo was in a bad part of town “full of gangs and the yakuza and so forth.” He explains having used his aikido in around 300 street fights.
“If you don’t fight for real, you will never understand the essence of any martial art.”
On how he used to test his black belts:
”Back in the day we took three to five guys, and after you went through piece by piece showing all the techniques you could do, we lined up three to five guys, we put them across the room, and we said “begin,” and they would attack you as hard as they could, and they would do anything they could to take you out. And we constantly had people who had broken noses, black eyes, ripped open face – there was never a black belt exam that didn’t end without blood everywhere.”
Above the Law was autobiographical:
SCHIAVELLO: In interviews you’ve said that Above the Law was part autobiographical.
SEAGAL: Well I’m not gonna get into that, but I will say that I believe it was based on a true story that had to do with the Iran-Contra conspiracy, which never really came out.
IS STEVEN SEAGAL IN THE CIA?!? By the way, if you made a game where you had to drink every time Seagal said “I’m not gonna get into that” or “I don’t want to get into that” or “Without getting too much into that” you’d be hammered by minute 20.
Discussing the infamous cue-ball-in-the-bar-towel scene in Out for Justice:
In special forces you know we say something like, you know there is this phrase that is common amongst “operators,” and that phrase is “adapt and overcome.” And coming up with the idea of putting that cue ball in a rag and using it against all those people was a good idea that really works. I can tell you. I mean, that will hurt somebody very badly.
That explains it, Steven Seagal is in the special forces, Unique Physiological Reaction division. They’re like the X-Men, but everyone has ponytails.
Steven Seagal knows how Brandon Lee was killed:
When Brandon was killed like that, they called me a few minutes after it happened, and they said, “We think that he’s dead, but the guy shot a blank gun at him, how could he be dead? He’s dying.” And I said “You will find a projectile in him. You will find a bullet in him.” They said that can’t be. You’re crazy. And they called me in the morning and said “You’re amazing, because they found a bullet in him.”
And I could go through the whole story and explain what really happened that most people don’t know, but the long and the short is that when Brandon passed like that, I didn’t sleep for three or four days. It reminded me too much of certain things.
What certain things? Another murder you witnessed? A book you read? A ham sandwich? He never elaborates, but the implication is clear: Steven Seagal knows the whole story behind Brandon Lee’s death, but he’s not telling.
Asked what movie of his he’d save if all the others were destroyed in a fire:
“It’s probably On Deadly Ground because of the speech at the end. Which, is exactly what Al Gore did 18 years later that he got an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize for. I was a little ahead of my time. And I understand they cut a lot of that speech out, it was originally much longer. And it really just cut the entire gamut of what’s happening with the planet. But I think that for mankind, that’s probably the most important work I’ve done.”
Here’s that speech that should’ve won him the Nobel Prize, which involves Steven Seagal wearing a fringed coat giving a speech before an assemblage of nodding, solemn American Indians:
Heavy stuff. Steven Seagal should’ve won the Nobel, if only someone had taken him seriously. In fairness, how could they, with that jacket he was wearing.
On whether there are any “legitimate Hollywood tough guys:”
SCHIAVELLO: Michael Jai White?
SEAGAL: Can I laugh in your face?
SCHIAVELLO: Jean Claude Van Damme?
SEAGAL: Can I laugh in your face?
SCHIAVELLO: Chuck Norris?
SEAGAL: Chuck Norris is in his mid-70s.
“Do I think Michael is a tough guy or a martial artist? No. Do I think Chuck Norris is a tough guy or a martial artist? No.”
On first getting involved in Mixed Martial Arts:
Anderson Silva sent me a postcard that said “show me your lethal stuff.”
Meanwhile, he refuses to talk about Judo Gene Lebell allegedly choking him out, saying Judo Gene is a scumbag, they only met once, and all they did was stretch.
“I have friends who are in their 60s and 70s who could kill most of the guys that think they’re great warriors in their 20s. Could kill them! But that’s stuff that most guys who will hear this will go come on, that’s a joke. Well, amongst real martial arts masters, it’s not a joke.”
On having an Asian grandmother, maybe on his mother’s side:
“It’s really on my father’s side. All I have is a picture of my father’s family, and they… got pretty slanted eyes. And Asian clothes. They look like Asian Mongols, but I don’t know what they are. But something Asian.”
They had slanted eyes, and their clothes looked all… Asian! They were speaking a different language, I think it was… Asian! (reference at 1:00)
On doing more comedy in the future:
I think I could be very funny, everyone who knows me thinks I’m very funny. I think I could be very good in a comedy if the right one came along.
If you’ve ever read Live From New York, you may recall the story about the time Steven Seagal hosted Saturday Night Live:
David Spade: [Seagal] didn’t want to go along with what the plan was that week, and as a result, I think that was the first week that I heard talk about replacing the host and just doing a cast show.
Julia Sweeney:When we pitched our ideas for Seagal at our Monday meeting, he gave us some of his own sketch ideas. And some of his sketch ideas were so heinous, but so hilariously awful, it was like we were on Candid Camera. He had this idea that he’s a therapist and he wanted Victoria Jackson to be his patient who’s just been raped. And the therapist says, “You’re going to have to come to me twice a week for like three years,” because, he said, “that’s how therapists f*cking are. They’re just trying to get your money.” And then he says that the psychiatrist tries to have sex with her.
A rape counselor who keeps trying to have sex with his patients. I agree, please, let Steven Seagal write a comedy like yesterday. Or, just let him talk for another 40 minutes.
I really hate this soggy motherfucker
Stars of ‘The Last Dragon’ Taimak Guarriello (l.) and Leo O'Brien (r.) film 'I've Seen Things’ on 135th St. in Harlem in 2011. O’Brien died at age 41 Wednesday morning.
Leo O'Brien, a star of the cult classic "The Last Dragon," died in New York on Wednesday at age 41, family and friends said.
The cause of death was not released. An autopsy was inconclusive, and the medical examiner’s office is awaiting toxicology results.
His friend and former castmate Taimak Guarriello said only, “He’s been having a little problem.”
"He's been through a lot of tough times," Guarriello said. "It's unfortunate."
O’Brien, who was trying to put his checkered past behind him and resurrect an acting career, was shot three times in Harlem a year ago after an argument with an acquaintance.
“I’m a fast healer — kind of a mutant,” he told the Daily News at the time. “I’ve been told if this happened to someone else, they’d be dead.”
In 'The Last Dragon,' O'Brien starred as Richie, the charismatic little brother of lead character, Bruce Leroy.
After hearing about the shooting last September, Guarriello reached out to O’Brien, visited him in the hospital and rekindled their friendship.
The two began filming a short indie flick a month later, their first collaboration since the 1985 martial arts movie produced by Berry Gordy.
O’Brien — who ran several businesses after a string of arrests that landed him in jail for eight years — was cast as a charming Harlem gangster.
The movie has not been released, but Guarriello said he had hoped to include O'Brien in other upcoming projects.
"He was very talented," he said. "It wasn't like he lost his talent."
In “The Last Dragon,” Guarriello played the lead character, Bruce Leroy, and O’Brien played his charismatic little brother, Richie.
"This is a movie that touched a lot of hearts and he was wonderful in it," said Guarriello.
"I think people should remember him as the talent that he was," he said. "He was a sweetheart and he had a good sense of humor."
Guarriello said he learned of his pal’s death from O’Brien’s son, Drew, who mourned his father on Facebook with the message: “R.I.P to my father Leo Obrien. You will be dearly missed. I love you.”
;___; so sad R.I.P.

DC released their solicitations for January today, giving us a complete list of previews for the month and in a few cases announced final issues. This isn’t some new method of surprise, really, DC has done this with both the second and wave of New 52 books. They bring a few books to an end to replace them; Blackhawks, Hawk and Dove, Static Shock, Men of War, Mr. Terrific, and O.M.A.C. all ended to make way for Ravagers, Earth 2, Worlds Finest, Batman Inc, Dial H, and GI Combat. Come the next wave we saw the ends of JLI, Captain Atom, Resurrection Man, and Voodoo to make way for Talon, Swords of Sorcery, Phantom Stranger, and Team 7.
In other words, DC has a method that has been working for them. End some books that are either not working in terms of sales, or that have reached a conclusion, and then you pump in new ideas and creators to fill the created gap.
In January we’ll be seeing the final issues of Blue Beetle, Legion Lost, Frankenstein, and Grifter.
Justice League of America is set to start in February, which makes one of the replacement titles announced. The other is the recently announced Keith Giffen title, Threshold, which is going to be all cosmicy and include a new Green Lantern as a lead character. I wouldn’t be surprised to see DC stay mum for another several weeks about the other two. Pacing things out to time the reveals up with the release of the February solicits.
My guesses? A new Edge title and a new Dark title. Captialize on Wildstorm and find somewhere to keep pushing the Daemonite plot forward with Grifter and Voodoo gone, and maybe find some new Dark title to spin out of Rotworld. The timing is right.
Now, the Snyder/Lee Man of Steel book I’m imagine we won’t see until next summer, and my gut is telling me WildC.A.T.S. next fall or winter, but DC has been doing a great job of not telegraphing new books in advance.
I mean, I wouldn’t have expected a Talon ongoing, or Phantom Stranger, hell, don’t get me started on Sword of Sorcery.

Her career as a pop star has never been a 9 to 5 job. But Rihanna keeps even more unusual hours than most. At 9pm, as others prepared to turn in for the night, she was heading to the studio to start her day’s work.
The singer was pictured arriving at her recording studio in Los Angeles after dark on Wednesday.
Rihanna Tweets Song Lyrics While Recording New Album 'Unapologetic'?
Rihanna showed off a new bondage-inspired look for her latest late night visit to the recording studio to work on her new album yesterday (17th October).
The 'You Da One' star has been frequenting the studio all week in Los Angeles for late night sessions recording and wrapping work on her new record 'Unapologetic' , and chose to dress down for her latest session with a punk rock look.
Rihanna was pictured dressed on green camouflage patterned trousers complete with bondage style black straps on the back, which she paired with an American football jersey and a simply black beanie.
The 'We Found Love' star has also been tweeting fans for the past day to tease the album with a number of cryptic messages, which could hint at potential song lyrics for the upcoming release.
Rihanna's seventh studio album 'Unapologetic' is set for release on 19th November.

Famously known for his numerous businesses and political beliefs, Donald Trump took to Twitter to comment on a different cause: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's relationship.
The star of "The Celebrity Apprentice" tweeted, "Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart," adding, "She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again — just watch. He can do much better!"
Earlier this summer, the "Twilight" couple was the subject of an extensive amount of media coverage, as the 22-year-old actress admitted to cheating on her 26-year-old boyfriend with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.
Recently, young lovers were photographed outside a Los Angeles nightclub, which is a sign that the two might be back together.
Tony nominee Laura Osnes is going to be the envy of plenty of young girls when she heads to a glamorous royal ball as the title character of the upcoming Broadway musical Cinderella. As she prepares to get into princess mode, the actress is excited to don her character's famous footwear once the show begins its run this winter.
“I can’t believe they are custom making glass slippers for me,” Osnes told Broadway.com. “I am so thrilled. I got a phone call asking my shoe size because they are starting to work on the glass slipper. I am dying! Obviously they probably aren’t really going to be glass, but I’m so curious to see what they do.”
The production marks the first time Rodgers & Hammerstein's take on the fairy tale will be presented on Broadway. While the musical will include the iconic glass slippers, nasty step-sisters and other elements assoicated with the classic story, book author Douglas Carter Beane is reworking the material and bringing a new take on the beloved tale.
“Doug is brilliant,” Osnes said. “He has rewritten the whole script. It’s not too contemporary. It definitely still takes place in a period with poofy dresses and that princess expectation that everybody has, but [in this adaptation] Cinderella and the prince both have other desires and purposes for their lives and are able to achieve them together. I think it’s going to spread the gambit of emotions,” Osnes continued. “It’s funny, light hearted and wonderful, but also has so much heart to it and so much romance.”
Check out Osnes in this exciting retelling of Cinderella, beginning January 21 at the Broadway Theatre.

By all accounts, Joaquin Phoenix is considered an Oscar frontrunner for his performance in ‘The Master.’ The only problem is that Phoenix himself wants no part of it. When asked about the possibility of an Oscar nomination, Phoenix took the chance to call the Academy Awards the “stupidest thing in the whole world.”
Joaquin Phoenix was previously nominated for an Oscar for both ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Walk the Line’ and neither were experiences that Phoenix enjoyed. The actor spoke to Interview magazine and revealed his thoughts on the Oscars when asked about whether he would like to be nominated this year:
I’m just saying that I think it’s bulls—. I think it’s total, utter bulls—, and I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t believe in it….It’s the stupidest thing in the whole world. It was one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life when ‘Walk the Line’ was going through all the awards stuff and all that. I never want to have that experience again.
Soooo…that’s a no, then?
It’s hard to know how much comments like these will actually effect Phoenix’s chances. Previously Eddie Murphy and Bill Murray were both critical and blase about the Oscars and many felt that cost then wins; Murphy for ‘Dreamgirls’ (he lost to Alan Arkin for ‘Little Miss Sunshine’) and Murray for ‘Lost in Translation’ (he lost to Sean Penn for ‘Mystic River’).
It certainly appears that Phoenix has no interest in showing up to events or promoting himself in any way for a Best Actor nomination. But is his performance in ‘The Master’ strong enough to overcome politicking?
What do you think of Phoenix’s comments? Is he 100% right or is he biting the hand that feeds?
First time I post in here, sorry if I made mistakes...
ia with him btw
Nicki Minaj has premiered the music video for her new single on VEVO today!
“The Boys” is the first single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, due November 19, and it's available now on iTunes.
Brazilian model Adriana Lima is working out a grand total of 42 hours a week to get into shape for November’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The new mother is logging in two-a-day training sessions, proving that getting into Victoria’s Secret shape is a fulltime job.
Lima has added pressure to look like her usually-svelte self – as she gave birth to her second child, daughter Sienna, on Sept. 12. Similar to fellow-Angel, Heidi Klum’s five week slim-down for the 2009 fashion show, Lima will be in her skivvies in record-breaking time.
The 31-year-old stunner is working with her trusty trainer, Michael Olajide Jr., to get into tip-top shape for next month’s runway show, where she’ll no doubt have to strut her stuff in some of the world’s skimpiest lingerie.
How does Lima get into Victoria’s Secret shape post-baby?
Olajide exclusively revealed to Celebuzz how he’s getting Lima runway ready after just giving birth three weeks ago.
Michael Olajide Jr.: Adriana goes above and beyond. As a trainer you can only go as far as the individual you’re training allows you to go. Adriana has a unique mind, an extremely high level of tolerance when it comes to physical discomfort. Some people are afraid to sweat and feel like their heart is going to jump out of their chest but Adriana’s able to function in that atmosphere and that’s why she’s always at the top of her game. She’s 100% professional.
CB: Is it harder to lose the weight after having a second baby?
MO: I can imagine for many reasons, regardless of whether it’s a woman’s first or second baby, it would be difficult. Basically a woman is at the mercy of nature. The hormones are sending different signals throughout the body post pregnancy that can effect the ability to lose weight and even the willingness to be physical, so a fight against nature is probably the hardest thing one can do. Adriana has this ability to override those signals, that’s what I mean when I say she has a unique mind. She is the definition of a fighter.
CB: What are your goals with her?
MO: Adriana’s goal is the same as every healthy woman’s, return to pre-baby shape. She sets the bar high.
CB: How many times are you training her a week?
MO: I work with her twice a day, seven days a week.
CB: What are some specific workouts that work the best for her?
MO:Boxing. But not just simple punching, complex combinations that require her to execute a series of drills at a high rate of speed and power. This keeps her mind sharp and involved. There’s also jump rope. That’s also an intense all over body workout that torches an immense amount of calories. But again, this isn’t jump rope you see in the playground. This is athletic/boxer styled jump rope and then some.
CB: Point blank, what is she doing to get into Victoria’s Secret shape?
MO: Boxing/jump rope and we have specialized sculpting maneuvers that are killer. No weights, no machines.
CB: How long is each workout?
MO: Each workout is 2-3hours long.
CB: What’s one exercise that Adriana loves or dislikes?
MO: Focus mitt works and jump rope she loves. I don’t think she dislikes any one thing we do in particular because she knows it’s all a part of the complete package. She just gets it done.
CB: Is there a body part that she really wants to get back in shape or a body part that she loves to flaunt?
MO: We never discuss anything like that believe it or not, we’ve worked together for many years now. She knows innately where she wants to be for her photo shoots or the Victoria’s Secret show…. we glove up and begin the fight, she knows when she’s ready.
CB: What are some great meal options for someone trying to shed the baby weight?
MO: Basically, cut sugars, eat as natural as possible, drink water, portion control and find a healthy hobby. Not only do we over eat when stressed, we over eat when bored.
CB: If you could give Celebuzz your top three tips for losing weight and staying in their best shape, what would they be?
MO: 1. Keep your workouts cardio and infuse lightweight muscle endurance work. Go athletic. Remember, cardio is king. 2. Set healthy eating plan. 3. Get your sleep in. Bonus: your workout should challenge your mind as well as your body.

Donald Trump has urged Robert Pattinson not to get back together with Kristen Stewart.
Recent reports have suggested that Pattinson has reconciled with his Twilight co-star despite the revelation earlier this year that she had cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders.
Trump has now taken to his Twitter page to warn Pattinson that Stewart may be unfaithful again in the future.
"Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart," he wrote. "She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again--just watch. He can do much better!"
Trump later added: "Lots of response to my Pattinson/Kristen Stewart reunion [tweet]. She will cheat again--100 certain--am I ever wrong?"
Recent rumors have suggested that Pattinson and Stewart are considering a move to Cornwall, while other reports claimed that Stewart had bought a Malibu home close to Pattinson's property.
International pop star and twang-talking X Factor judge Britney Spears has done bought herself a new mansion. And it's not, not surprisingly, that bluff-top, ocean-view spread in Malibu (CA) those wily X Factor people tried to pass off as her house last week when small groups of the show's hopeful contestants were invited to belt their wannabe pop star hearts out at one of the four judge's homes. Listing information we managed to brutishly inveigle out of the internets shows the multi-winged, single-story red tile-roofed residence in question, located behind the 24-hour guarded gates of the prosperously peopled Sherwood Country Club, was completed in 2010 and measures 8,456 square feet with five bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
Property records don't yet reflect a transfer of ownership—which makes this all just a juicy little tidbit of celebrity real estate rumor and gossip for now—but all signs and several unsolicited sources point Your Mama towards Miz Spears purchasing a sprawling, Hacienda-style casa in sleepy and upscale Thousand Oaks, CA that was last listed on the open market in April (2012) with an asking price of $8,500,000.
Miley Cyrus called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Thursday to chat about her guest appearance on “Two and a Half Men,” new music, tells us if her fiance Liam Hemsworth ever gets jealous, and does she think the new Jonas Brothers song “Wedding Bells” is about her?
Is ‘Wedding Bells’ About Miley’s Relationship with Nick Jonas?
“I don’t know who else is getting married…so I feel like that’s pretty blatant, it’s whatever. Like I said, everyone has to write songs that are about things that they felt and he even introduced that this isn’t the way that I am. So, you can’t ever hate on someone for writing about something you’ve been through. I think that you kind of get a fair warning when you date an artist and someone that’s a writer. When you’re going through things that you’re going to end up hearing about it on the radio.” So does Miley think the song is about her? “I don’t know…wedding bells are in
On Her New Album:
“I’ve been working with Pharrell a lot and working with Dr. Luke. There’s a good mix on this record of songs that are kind of about things that I’ve gone through and making this album after I just got engaged and all this. But also just some fun party songs too,” she says. And when will Miley be releasing these new songs? “Hopefully by the end of this year I’ll have a single out, not hopefully, we will have a single out by the end of this year. Then hopefully next year another single, pretty early in next year, then an album to drop, and hopefully a tour to follow.”
Is Liam Jealous When She Has To Kiss Someone?
“it’s a thing, but it’s not a thing. At this point we’re engaged, like we’re forever. I think if I was a girlfriend and all this stuff would happen I would feel like I need to show my ownership,” Miley explains. “I’ve turned down scripts, because I felt like it was things that not only make me feel uncomfortable, but I don’t think any
On Two and a Half Men:
“It was so fun. Chuck and everyone at ‘Two and a Half Men,’ they’re just genius. I’ve been wanting to work with Ashton forever and I couldn’t really take time away to do a movie from my record right now. So, we wanted to work together, then we thought ‘Two and a Half Men’ would be the quick and easy way to do it. It turned out to be something that I loved so much I came back for a 2nd episode. I think it’s fun for the show, because what we thought was fun about my character is everyone that came on even when Charlie was there it was, Who’s going to sleep with Charlie or who’s going to sleep with Ashton? And that’s so not my character. My character is just so in your face and blunt and really kind of puts Ashton back in his place. It’s really fun and they’ve never really had a girl character come on like that.” You can see Miley on “Two and a Half Men” tonight at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
On Being Mistaken For Gwen Stefani:
“To be honest, I was so spaced out, I was confused. I couldn’t really understand what he was yelling, because I had just hugged Gwen. So, me and Gwen we’re the same when we are together. He was

New Line and Warner Bros. have retitled director Bryan Singer's fantasy-adventure Jack the Giant Slayer from the previous Jack the Giant Killer.
Insiders say the new title is more family friendly. The movie, which will be rated PG-13, is based on the classic fairy tale and stars Nicholas Hoult as a young man who unintentionally opens up a gateway between earth and a race of giants.
The 3D event pic is also moving up three weeks, from March 22 to March 1, taking advantage of Neill Blomkamp's Elysium moving off the date and relocating to Aug. 9.
Jack the Giant Killer also stars Ewan McGregor, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane and Bill Nighy.

A killer R&B duet in the making?
If the above snap is anything to go by, it’s just that ‘Swim Good’s Frank Ocean may be whipping up with ‘Unthinkable’ diva Alicia Keys.
Surfacing online today, the snap sees Keys and Ocean in a recording studio weeks before the launch of her new album ‘Girl On Fire’, prompting speculating Ocean is to pen cuts on the release- which also features ‘Masquerade‘ MC Nicki Minaj.
Frank posted the photo on Instagram with the caption: for 2012
Alicia reposted the photo and added the caption: Look who stopped in on me in the studio on my last day of recording!!! Would you want to hear what a song from us sounds like??
