Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara star in the first Pan trailer
Joe Wright has assembled quite a resume over the years, cutting his teeth on period dramas like PRIDE & PREJUDICE and ATONEMENT, then dabbling in action with HANNA. But his most daring film was ANNA KARENINA, where he gave an entirely new and original take on a very old story. So the only thing left for him to do was to take on a big summer blockbuster and now here he is with PAN. The first trailer for the film is below and although we may all groan at the thought of another “origins” tale, it looks like Joe Wright isn’t pulling any punches with this one. It may not be your cup of tea, but you have to admit it looks visually stunning. Check out the trailer below.
The official synopsis for PAN: Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, Pan follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny-to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan. PAN stars Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Nonso Anozie, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar and Levi Miller. The Joe Wright directed film hits theaters on July 17th, 2015.
