Two New Clips From Pan Swoop In

Pan-2015

Ahead of the nationwide previews this weekend, two new clips from Joe Wright’s Pan have escaped Neverland and found their way online. We’ve already heard the lively reinterpretation of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, and seen Hugh Jackman have a blast as resident villain Blackbeard, so expected the unexpected from Wright’s bold new vision for the classic story.

Naturally, the reworking of Peter Pan’s origins won’t be for everybody and let’s not forget that Warner Bros pulled the movie from its original summer slot to allow more time to complete the special effects. While a last minute release date change is nothing unusual, according to Deadline, huge chunks of the movie were reworked in post production after a middlingly response to a studio screening.

Starring alongside Hugh Jackman are Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried and Levi Miller, Pan is previewing in UK cinemas on October 11 & 12 and will be on general release from October 16.

From director Joe Wright comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie. The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund as James Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; newcomer Levi Miller as Peter; and Amanda Seyfried as Mary.

Peter is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily and a new friend named James Hook, Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
