PRESS STATEMENT FROM WARNER BROS:
The original relationships of iconic characters Peter, Blackbeard and James Hook are emphasized in the main trailer of the action-adventure Pan which may be viewed at https://youtu.be/axP4QNsk_SU.
Warner Bros. Pictures has also released the film's main poster art to accompany the trailer launch.
From director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) comes Pan, a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.
Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. 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 (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
Wright directed Pan from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Oscar nominee Paul Webster (Atonement) are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer.
The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables), Garrett Hedlund (Inside Llewyn Davis), Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), newcomer Levi Miller, and Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables).
Opening across the Philippines on Thursday, October 8, Pan is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
