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. »

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 »

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, »

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 (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard »

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 […]

Warner Bros just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming big-budget "Peter Pan" prequel, called "Pan," starring Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook. Check it out below. "Pan" tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds grand adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan. The new movie is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) and co-stars Amanda Seyfried as Mary, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan. It's set to hit theaters on October 9th.

By now we should expect that filmmaker Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) creates nothing if it’s not lavish and of a certain scale. Even his 2011 action thriller “Hanna” turned into an elaborate fairy tale complete with a wicked witch villain and he transformed Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” into an opulent and epic romantic drama. Naturally, Wright’s back in fairy tale mode for his live-action version of Peter Pan (simply titled “Pan”). But it’s a tactile world not surrounded by CGI. “I’ve tried to build as much as possible,” Wright told EW earlier this summer. “Hence [the] ridiculously enormous forest. I tried to be as physical about it as possible, not to ground the fantasy but to bring it to life.” And perhaps this is why “Pan,” epic in size and scope, was pushed from July 24th to this fall. Does that mean the movie’s in trouble? »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »
