The rise of Alicia Vikander

22 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.

Anna Karenina (2012)

Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »

Reese Witherspoon Away With The Fairies In ‘Tink’

21 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney have been having a field day of late reworking their animated back catalogue into live action blockbusters. Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has been to the ball and left with wads of cash, and with Tim Burton announced as helmer for the transfer of Dumbo the House Of Mouse shows no signs of slowing down. Next to get the green light is a character who could well be mistaken for a green light herself – Tinker Bell!

The perpetually high-wattage Reese Witherspoon is to star in and produce Tink, a vehicle for Peter Pan’s tiny winged companion. Written by Victoria Strouse, it’s reportedly a period piece. J.M. Barrie’s source material evolved into a play and a novel in the early twentieth century.

Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard are developing the movie, which is one of a number of Neverland-inspired projects on the way. Joe Wright’s Pan (starring Hugh Jackman »

Reese Witherspoon Spreads Oscar Dust Over Live-Action Tinker Bell Movie

21 May 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Joe Wright’s Pan flying into theaters this October, Hollywood may be about to embark on a new romance with the Boy Who Never Grew Up, and Disney is already getting ahead of the crowd with a live-action Tinker Bell spinoff, currently titled Tink. Today brings news that, to help them bring Peter Pan’s pint-sized sidekick to the big screen, the studio is calling on none other than Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon to spread some fairy dust.

Witherspoon is attached to both star in and produce the pic, which is being developed as a new take on a beloved character in the same vein as Disney’s mega-grossing Maleficent (though with a considerably smaller budget, according to reports). It will play with the classic Peter Pan narrative to give Tink (Witherspoon) her own tale, independent from her human-sized companion.

Reese Witherspoon To Star In Live Action Tinker Bell Movie

21 May 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There's more than one way to tackle a public domain property, and Hollywood is having its way with Peter Pan. This fall, Warner Bros. will unveil Joe Wright's "Pan," while the industry has a couple more projects in development, including a revisionist take at Sony with Channing Tatum attached to star and a TV show called "The League Of Pan." Now you can add one more to the pile from the studio who is making rehashing old properties into an art form. Reese Witherspoon will produce and star in "Tink," which, as you can guess by the title, will be a movie centered around Tinker Bell. Victoria Strouse ("Finding Dory") is penning the script for the Disney project, though there are no plot details just yet. The studio has had massive success on the direct-to-video market with the character, with a strong handful of movies, so in many ways »

Official Trailer for Pan Released

19 May 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

It’s been a long time since we heard about the slowly-simmering live-action film “Pan.” The film, directed by Joe Wright, has been around Hollywood for a while, but after the first teaser trailer was released, things seemed to have gone extremely quiet. Now, we’ve finally received the official trailer for “Pan.” If you’re a fan of the classic “Peter Pan” story, this film might be something of a ride for you, since the film plans on embellishing on the histories of these characters, staring with Peter is a normal human boy. But, if you like reinvention, this might be right for you. Take a look at the trailer below and  [ Read More ]

The Pan Trailer's Stunning Look at Neverland Will Take Your Breath Away

19 May 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Pack your bags; we're going to Neverland. A dazzling new trailer for Joe Wright's (Anna Karenina) Pan, the big-screen tale of Peter Pan's origin story, has arrived. Hugh Jackman is starring as the pirate Blackbeard, alongside Garrett Hedlund as a young Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Levi Miller as Peter Pan. It's not the story we're used to hearing; the film takes place when Peter is just a young orphan, kidnapped and brought to Neverland. This looks interesting, and I love Hedlund bringing some sexy to Hook. The visuals are stunning in the trailer, and you can bet they'll blow your mind in a theater. The movie is due out on Oct. 9, and you can watch the trailers below, complete with a quick look at Cara Delevingne. Here's the first trailer: »

Joe Wright’s Peter Pan Is Forever Young In Mystical Second Trailer For Warner Bros.’ Adventure

19 May 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The timeless story of J.M. Barrie’s sprightly youngster may be forever etched in folklore, from his first days in Neverland to the battle with evil pirate Captain Hook. But for Joe Wright’s upcoming Pan, Warner Bros. is rolling back the age-old story to its humble beginnings in order to explore the early days of Peter and Co. and how those rivalries, friendships and sense of childish wonder all began.

With Levi Miller stepping into the shoes of the titular hero, Wright’s live-action feature will see our budding protagonist whisked away to the alternate reality within which Hugh Jackman’s ostentatious villain Blackbeard rules over the whimsical world. That’s not the only tinkering the director has done to the source material, though, with Rooney Mara on board to play a revised version of Tiger Lily, a punk-like denizen of the fantastical realm that is under threat from Blackbeard’s reign. »

New Full Length Pan Trailer Teases Prophecy and Adventure

19 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Warner Bros. has released a brand new trailer for Joe Wright's upcoming Pan film, reimagining the origin of the popular children's character, infusing it with more action and a prophetic slant to it.  Come inside to check out the new trailer.  

Pan was supposed to hit in just a couple months, but WB decided to push it back to an October release slot.  Fortunately, people looking forward to the film can still get some relief thanks to this new trailer that hit: 

I'm going to be honest here...I'm not digging the trailer.  I wasn't all that thrilled when the first trailer dropped either, but something about this film isn't making a connection with me.  It's missing something, and feels a tad too much like the fairy tale live-action films Disney has been putting out.  The sense of tension and overall purpose isn't there in this trailer, even though »

Watch: Neverland is Waiting in New 'Pan' Trailer

19 May 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. decided to delay their upcoming Peter Pan feature, Pan, from a July release to Oct. 9, hoping to catch a wider audience later in the year rather than compete with the large amount of summer releases. Not a bad move in my estimation as it seems you either need a big franchise name like Mission: Impossible, a superhero movie or a hard bit of counter-programming, a la Pitch Perfect 2, to really survive the summer movie season nowadays. At least if we're talking a movie with some dollars behind it and word is Pan cost the studio $150 million. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement), Pan is a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the J.M. Barrie character with Levi Miller taking on the title role as a mischievous 12-year-old boy who, one night, is whisked away from the orphanage where he lives and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, »

Watch: More Blackbeard in Second Trailer for Joe Wright's 'Pan' Movie

19 May 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"He's the pirate all pirates fear - Blackbeard!!" Warner Bros has debuted the second full-length trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, which was initially slated for a summer release but was pushed back until October. Hugh Jackman plays Blackbeard, and he takes one of the main roles, alongside young actor Levi Miller as Peter Pan. We also get to see a bit more of Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Garrett Hedlund as Hook (before he becomes bad), Adeel Akhtar as Mr. Smee, plus Cara Delevingne as a mermaid. There are way more VFX shots in this than the first trailer, but it still feels a bit overly colorful in its design. Other than that, I am actually into this, I can see the whimsical fairy tale idea he's going for and I think it looks fun. Away we go... Here's the latest official trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, direct from Warner Bros: For comparison, »

New Pan Trailer Is A Visually Stunning Trip Through Neverland

19 May 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warner Bros. recently made a strategic decision to push Joe Wright’s Peter Pan origin story, Pan, out of this year’s summer season and back to October 9, where it would have room to breathe, and properly prepare audiences for the journey. Based on the new trailer, though, the move also suggests that Wright needed time to polish his visuals, because this trailer looks more stunning than the previous pass. When you are creating Neverland from scratch, though, you are going to need every minute in post-production that the studio will allow, so I’m really hoping the Pan move leads to an improved movie-going experience. As we have mentioned in previous articles, Pan will be a new take on the early days of Peter (played by newcomer Levi Miller), starting in a London orphanage and following him on his journey to Neverland, where he’s »

Watch the brand new trailer from Warner Bros. Pictures.

‘Pan’ Trailer: Every Kid Needs a Visually Lavish Backstory

19 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The story of Peter Pan is reconfigured in Pan, from Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright. While J.M. Barrie‘s most well-known creation, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, is a perpetually immature child, there’s still room in his youth for a backstory. And this version of Peter seems quite different, with — at least briefly […]

Coming from period costume drama connoisseur Joe Wright, we now have the full-length trailer for the reimagining of the a classic tale. […] »

New Teaser Trailer For Pan

19 May 2015 1:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

"Dreams can come true, if you wish hard enough,” wrote J.M. Barrie. If, like us, you dreamt of a new Pan trailer last night, prepare to be blown over with a feather, because guess what? Yup, it’s here. Un-flipping-canny. Click on the YouTube below to immerse yourself in this strange sorcery.Until now, Joe Wright’s Pan has kept its creative powder relatively dry. This promo, however, gives a clear flavour of what we can expect: something heightened, riotously colourful and more theatrical than an explosion in a luvvie factory. A Dardenne movie, it ain’t. The tenor is clearly one of fantasy cranked up to 12, with both Levi Miller’s Peter and Garrett Hedlund’s Hook getting origin stories that expand beyond the pages of Barrie’s book.Peter is a wartime orphan evacuated far beyond the usual requirements of Luftwaffe avoidance. He winds up in Neverland where »

Hugh Jackman takes to the skies and Cara Delevingne is double trouble in new Pan trailer

19 May 2015 1:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

An evil Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund as a young Captain Hook and a pair of Cara Delevingnes are all on offer in the latest trailer for Pan.

Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried and Adeel Akhtar are also among the cast of Joe Wright's Jm Barrie-inspired adventure.

Jackman plays Blackbeard in the film, which tells the story of the young Peter Pan (Levi Miller) as he discovers Neverland and learns to fly.

The Wolverine star shaved his head last year in order to take on the role.

Pan was previously scheduled to open over the summer, but will now be released on October 9.

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

A second Pan trailer has been released, and while I'm still not sold on the film, I will say this new trailer is an improvement over the first one. The latest look at director Joe Wright's Peter Pan origin movie explores different areas of Neverland that didn't appear in the original trailer, and contains a bunch of other new footage, although it again features Garrett Hedlund's James Hook getting punched in the face.
