Playing Hugh Jackman Plays a Terrifying Blackbeard in New 'Pan' Trailer

Neverland has never looked more colorful in this epic full-length trailer for Pan. Brace yourselves, Hugh Jackman is not the good guy in the movie.

Directed by Joe Wright (Hannah, Atonement), the fantasy film shows tells the origins of the kid that never grew up, and stars Jackman, his Les Miserables co-star Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara and Levi Miller. The story is about an orphan who is spirited away to the magical world of Neverland. It is here that he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny -- to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.

One of the more memorable moments of the trailer comes when Blackbeard asks Pan, "Have you come to kill me Peter?" The boy answers, "I don't believe in bedtime stories."

In addition to the trailer, Pan posters were released this week of the movie's stars.
