Hugh Jackman Plays a Terrifying Blackbeard in New 'Pan' Trailer
By Jackie Willis
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.
Jackman plays the pirate Blackbeard, Hedlund is a young James Hook, Mara portrays Tiger Lily, Seyfried plays Mary (Peter Pan's mom) and the young Miller takes on the role of Peter Pan. Supermodel Cara Delevingne also appears as a mermaid in the highly anticipated movie.
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, Panposters were released this week of the movie's stars.
