With spring creeping up on us, a whole bunch of images have just been revealed for two very different high-profile releases. Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Slayer is a CG-heavy fantasy epic based on the classic fairy tale, while Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines takes an atypical approach to the crime thriller genre.

In addition, we have a new still for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, which isn’t due out until summer but should be revealing a bit of new footage during this weekend’s Super Bowl. Check out all the pictures after the jump.

Let’s just go in order of release date. First up is Jack the Giant Slayer, the second fairy tale movieĀ and second Nicholas Hoult release of 2013. I’m still not loving the fakey CG giants, but Ewan McGregor‘s flipped-up ‘do is a wonder to behold. Jack the Giant Slayer opens March 1.


A few weeks later comes the release of The Place Beyond the Pines, which reunites Ryan Gosling with his Blue Valentine director for a saga about “fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villains.” Gosling plays a pro motorcycle rider who turns to crime to support his family, and Bradley Cooper a newbie cop who clashes with him. Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Dane DeHaan, and Emory Cohen also star. Look for it in theatersĀ March 29.

Finally, we also have a new high-res still from The Lone Ranger. Armie Hammer plays the title character, but it’s really Tonto who’s front and center. Here, he appears to be having a staring contest with a horse, because that’s just the kind of bizarre behavior that one engages in when one is Johnny Depp in white pancake makeup. The Lone Ranger rides into theaters July 3.
