Mermaid Cara In "Pan"

23 July 2015 9:27 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek images and footage of actress Cara Delevingne ("Suicide Squad") as a 'mermaid' in director Joe Wright's upcoming live-action feature "Pan", based on "Peter Pan" by author J.M.Barrie, starring Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara and Amanda Seyfried:

"...'Peter' is a 'WWII' orphan when he's abducted by the clownish henchman of 'Blackbeard', from his bed at the 'Lambeth Home for Boys'. He's then spirited away to 'Neverland' by a magical flying ship to work in the 'Neverland' mines..."

"Then Peter is rescued by young 'James Hook' (Garrett Hedlund) who helps Peter escape..."

"...'Mermazing! So excited for you to see the 'Pan' trailer!," said Delevingne about her fishy role. "It's gonna' be a wonderful movie'..."

Hugh Jackman's Pan Trailer Packed With Pirates, Mermaids, And One Massive Crocodile

16 July 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Over the years, the story of Peter Pan has been imagined, reimagined, animated, prequeled, and rendered in damn near anyway you can think of. But that doesn.t mean that people are going to stop sharing their takes. Joe Wright.s upcoming film, Pan, purports to be an origin story for the boy who would never grow up, and it dropped this new trailer today. This is the adventure-filled trailer that Pan showed off at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, and as you can see right away, this interpretation of J.M. Barrie.s beloved Lost Boy is going to be something quite different from what you.ve seen before. As the voiceover says, sometimes "friends begin as enemies, and enemies as friends," and you witness something curious here: Peter Pan and the man who will become Captain Hook fighting on the same side. That.s going to be »

Watch: New Trailer for 'Pan' Tells Us This Isn't the Story We've Heard Before

16 July 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Up until today my interest in Pan begins and ends at Rooney Mara's involvement, in part because I'm not a huge fan of fantasy tales and also because I feel like I already know the story it intends to tell, and as a Rooney Mara fan it feels like she is all I have to cling to. But if we are to believe the narration in this newest trailer, perhaps there is reason for me to step back and reframe my expectations. "I'm going to tell you a story about a boy who would never grow up, about the pirate who wished to catch him, about the island where fairies roamed," the narrator states at the beginning of the trailer below. "But this isn't the story you've heard before." Part of me wonders if that is true, or if it's just another way for the studio to sell the film, »

Will Joe Wright's Pan fly like a fairy or founder on the rocks of controversy?

16 July 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood’s latest revisionist fairytale boasts child-stealing pirates and a Hook who’s morphed into Indiana Jones. But Rooney Mara’s turn as a psychedelic-tressed Tiger Lily won’t do much to offset accusations of ‘whitewashing’

It’s an unwritten rule of fantasy film-making that if you can’t make a great movie, at least make one that’s utterly outlandish. This is why, for all their failings, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful, with their giant-headed queens, excitable talking animals and gorgeous warring witches, will always be remembered more fondly than furrow-browed Angelina Jolie-vehicle Maleficent, or any of the distinctly po-faced Narnia films.

If the 20 minutes or so of footage shown to journalists and bloggers in London earlier today is anything to go by, Joe Wright’s Pan won’t want for bombastic nuttiness. One particular scene in which »

Pan preview footage reaction: Director Joe Wright speaks

16 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This morning in central London, we were treated to around 15 minutes of new footage from director Joe Wright’s upcoming fantasy/adventure, Pan. The film, which stars Hugh Jackman as the movie’s lead villain Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lilly, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, arrives in cinemas in October.

When Joe Wright‘s Pan was announced, I must admit to being one of those who rolled his eyes at the thought of a new re-imagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale. In the very near past we’ve had the likes of Peter Pan (2003), Finding Neverland, and even last year’s TV special Peter Pan Live on our screens, and it seems too soon to take a trip back. Does the world need another movie? It is very clear from the footage that Warner Bros. showed off this morning that director Joe Wright »

'Pan' Trailer #3 Has Mermaids, Giant Crocodiles and Tinkerbell

16 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After debuting at Comic-Con last weekend, Warner Bros. has finally released the third and final trailer for Pan. In theaters this October, the classic J.M. Barrie fairytale gets an origin story. We get to see how Peter and Hook became such bitter enemies, after starting off as great friends. And we get to see Hugh Jackman deliver a delicious performance as the iconic pirate Blackbeard. This trailer also offers up plenty of thrills, including a fierce mermaid played by Suicide Squad's Cara Delevingne and one giant Crocodile that belongs in a horror movie. It promises to wow adult audiences and give small children nightmares for decades to come.

There is plenty of new footage in this latest sneak peek at director Joe Wright's revisionist take on the iconic story of the boy who never grew up, never got old, partied all night, and slept all day. The film »

Adventure Flies High In Pan Trailer

16 July 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Comic-Con audiences were last weekend treated to a visually lush trailer for Pan and a clip showcasing Hugh Jackman’s hammy performance as Blackbeard in the Joe Wright-directed blockbuster, neither preview has surfaced online yet. Today, though, Warner Bros. has unveiled an extended look at the October pic, heavy on both fantasy and exposition.

This time around, Levi Miller portrays the titular Boy Who Never Grew Up, whose miserable life in a London orphanage is upended when he (and others) are captured and enslaved by the villainous pirate Blackbeard (Jackman), who spirits them away to Neverland in the belly of a flying pirate ship. There, Peter begins to realize that he may hold the key to breaking Blackbeard’s hold over the fantastical island.

The trailer promises visual splendor and imaginative action in equal measure, and given the huge budget Wright had to play with, there’s reason »

Joe Wright Talks Pan Footage

16 July 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Pan director Joe Wright followed up his Comic-Con appearance by unveiling his first foray into blockbuster-scale movie-making to a UK audience, revealing an ambitious new take on an well-known story. Not that he was as daunted by Peter Pans that had gone before as he was by “taking on a film with this scale and using CGI, which I’ve never done before,” he admitted.Wright described Pan as “a love letter” to the source material rather than an adaptation.The footage didn’t only confirm its prequel-ish origin-story approach (how Peter — newcomer Levi Miller — gets to Neverland; how Hook — Garrett Hedlund — becomes, er, Hook), it also showed his twists on the tale: setting it during World War Two (flying galleons versus Spitfires!), getting Hugh Jackman to push himself to new dark and crazy places as bad-guy Blackbeard, feeding in contemporary elements (the Lost Boys — or Lost-Boys-to-be — singing 'Smells Like »

16 July 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Jackman's Pan has debuted a dazzling new trailer, which you can watch below.

Joe Wright's Jm Barrie-inspired adventure will tell the story of the young Peter Pan as he discovers Neverland and learns to fly.

The Wolverine actor plays Blackbeard in the film, while Levi Miller takes on the role of Peter.

They are joined by Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried, Adeel Akhtar and Cara Delevingne, who appear in supporting roles.

Jackman shaved his head last year in order to play the iconic role.

Pan was previously scheduled to open over the summer, but will now be released on October 16 in the UK and October 9 in the Us.

Its release date was originally pushed back to avoid a clash with Marvel's Ant-Man. »

A few months ago we thought we’d be getting the fantasy epic Pan this weekend, but Warner Bros. elected to move the film to October — a more promising sign than their Jupiter Ascending/Jack the Giant Slayer dead zone of February/March.

One More Trailer for Joe Wright's 'Pan' Adventure Starring Levi Miller

16 July 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Because sometimes friends begin as enemies, and enemies begin as friends." Warner Bros has debuted one more trailer, the third full trailer, for Joe Wright's Pan movie. This was also featured during Warner Bros' Comic-Con panel last weekend, and is being released online in full now. Young actor Levi Miller plays the new Peter Pan on his first trip to Never Never Land, where he encounters Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara). As much as this may seem like a fantastic CG mess, don't forget that it's made to connect with people of all ages. It's an adventure where we get to see Never Never Land like never before. I honestly don't know if it'll be any good, but does look like fun. Enjoy! Here's the third official trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, direct from Warner Bros: For comparison, you can still watch »

New Trailer For Pan Sails Online

16 July 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

"What an eccentric performance," observed King Arthur of Tim The Enchanter in Monty Python And The Holy Grail. But Tim, it turns out, is positively subdued compared to the riot of colour and theatrical hamming on display in Joe Wright's incoming Pan. Second star to the right and straight on til morning is the address for Neverland, but you don't need to go that far to see the new trailer. Look, it's right here!As you'll have seen from that, Wright has gone all out for fantasy spectacle, and the trailer editors are clearly much enamoured of his flying ships. Levi Miller is Peter Pan before we meet him in Jm Barrie's classic tale (for this be a prequel, my lads), and Huge Ackman is the dread pirate Blackbeard: an important player in the film's other origin story for Garrett Hedlund's Captain Hook.Peter is a wartime orphan »
