Peter Pan (2003)

8 August 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Full of wonderment, energy and moments of behind-the-sofa tension, this live-action adaptation of Jm Barrie's timeless fantasy offers a whirlwind tour of Neverland. Jeremy Sumpter toplines as the boy who refuses to grow up, but the show belongs to Jason Isaacs (who would later Potter with villainy as Lucius Malfoy) as the despicable Captain Hook and Rachel Hurd-Wood, making a luminous debut as the object of Peter's affections, Wendy Darling.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Cast and Character Breakdown

29 April 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's the biggest news of the day. Probably the week. Possibly the month. And maybe even the whole year thus far. Director J.J. Abrams has announced the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII. Returning from the original trilogy are Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Joining them are newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.

What we haven't gotten are any new story details or character breakdowns. Who are these new guys playing? And where is Billy Dee Williams? We've been able to piece together all the information we've had in the past two years to explain who we might see on screen next December, and in what capacity. None of this has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm.

Peter Pan at the movies: From Disney to Steven Spielberg's Hook

12 February 2014 5:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Peter Pan found himself back in the headlines this week with the news that Warner Bros is launching a nationwide casting search to find a new boy who'll never grow up. The Joe Wright-directed film will explore the origins of Jm Barrie's character with Hugh Jackman as pirate Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund playing a young James Hook.

Digital Spy takes a look at five other movies that have used Barrie as inspiration to create some movie magic.

Peter Pan (1953)

There had been a Pan movie before (a silent film released in 1924), but this Disney-produced offering proved to be a big hit in the early '50s. Turning Barrie's acclaimed play into an animated musical, the Disney version even spawned a sequel (2002's Return to Neverland) and a spinoff series revolving around pixie Tinker Bell (more on that later).

Hook (1991)

A continuation of Barrie's story, Steven Spielberg took the helm »

26 January 2014 7:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘I, Frankenstein’ box office: Frankenstein reboot is second domestic box office bomb of 2014 (photo: buffed up, shirtless Aaron Eckhart in ‘I, Frankenstein’) Made for a reported $65 million (not including marketing and distribution expenses), the Lionsgate-distributed I, Frankenstein is surely not about to become a movie franchise. Directed by Stuart Beattie and starring Aaron Eckhart as the "I" of the title, I, Frankenstein collected a dismal $8.3 million from 2,753 North American theaters this weekend, January 24-26, 2014, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The weekend’s only new wide release in the United States and Canada, I, Frankenstein landed in sixth place on the domestic box office chart. I, Frankenstein, in fact, is the second major 2014 domestic box office bomb, following the $70 million-budgeted Renny Harlin-Kellan Lutz effort The Legend of Hercules, which debuted with $8.86 million at 2,104 locations a couple of weeks ago.
