Director Bryan Singer reveals his movie giants are gruesome so kids don't mind when they get killed to Dan Fienberg for Jack The Giant Slayer. Singer also reveals his take on the next X-Men.
RICHMOND, ENGLAND - I rushed in to interview with "Jack the Giant Slayer" director fresh off of shooting my musical stand-up (Check It Out Below) in front of Hampton Court Palace.
I apologized for my cold hands, but Singer knows a thing or two about shooting in the frigid temperatures in Henry VIII's former residence. Much of "Jack the Giant Slayer" is shot on elaborate soundstages and using digital trickery, but several key outdoor and crowd scenes were shot in the open spaces and courtyards around the palace, which justified the location of the film's recent junket and has added some historically confusing footnotes to the guided tours.
We chatted in a room decorated with a painting that Singer told me was one of the Queen's favorites, but it was unclear which Elizabeth was playing favorites with the Hampton art.
A long-time member of the TCA Board and a longer-time blogger of "American Idol," Dan Fienberg writes about TV, except for when he writes about movies or sometimes writes about the Red Sox. But never music. He would sound stupid talking about music.
