Is that the Asylum movie's logo, or did you use the real movie's logo by mistake?

(Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there is one company that's happy for all the public-domain fairytale action movies released in March...)

@iScottie
This is the Asylum rip-off just to be clear, not the Ewan McGregor one. Please change the logo as it might confuse some people.
The McGregor one is now called 'Jack The Giant Slayer' though it was originally called 'Jack The Giant Killer' when it was slated to be released in 2012.

I know most of already know this but I thought I would put this out there so that some poor soul doesn't end up buying this thinking it's the McGregor one.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I immediately thought of the 1962 stop-motion animated film: http://www.amazon.com/Jack-Giant-Kil...k+giant+killer

Not that it matters, but I wasn't aware of a remake.
So many blurays, so little time.

First blu-ray purchase - "Jason and the Argonauts" on July 6, 2010.

I wasn't aware Singer's version was a "remake" either.

And Asylum's counting on most folks not being aware of the Killer becoming the Slayer, not that the pre-change Killer had any resemblance to Kerwin Matthews either.
