Hugh Jackman's ship takes flight in the new poster for Joe Wright's Pan

It's been 5 months since we've really seen anything on Joe Wright's (HANNA, ATONEMENT) upcoming take on the Peter Pan story, and while that led a lot to believe that the film may have been delayed, this latest poster seems to suggest that it's right on track. In case you've missed out on the action so far, PAN is somewhat of a retelling of the orphan who is spirited away to magical Neverland. The central villain appears to be the pirate Blackbeard, played by everyone's favorite X-Man, Hugh Jackman. His ship, the Jolly Roger, is the main focus of the latest poster, of which you can see below.

I have mixed feelings over the trailer that premiered back in November for PAN, especially when this new poster has me more interested than that old preview did. I really dug Wright's previous work, and everything about PAN so far feels a little more HOOK than it should, minus it's greatest aspect (John Williams' score). In any case, I've always appreciated the director and his reliance on music to tell a story, so I'll definitely be curious to check out his latest work, whenever it hits. At the very least, Jackman looks to be having fun, and Garrett Hedlund shows more personality in the trailer as James Hook than he did in all of TRON: LEGACY.

PAN hits theaters on July 24, 2015.

Is that a flying pirate ship or a floating brothel?

Wright is an awesome director

I loved what he did with ANNA KARENINA..if anyone could make this work, it will be him. Just don't like Mara as tiger lily. Outside of the wrong race..she doesn't doesn't scream native warrior princess to me. Yes, I know she was bad ass in "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" but I am just not seeing it here.

Finally, we can all experience "the" origin story J.M. Barrie didn't write for his timeless legend!

I'm going to be honest, I have no interest in seeing this movie. While I think it will be a competently made film with Joe Wright behind the camera, and the cast that's being used, I just don't see the point in this. I really don't see the point in reinventing most fairytales. The Peter Pan story on it's own is perfect for a modern day adaptation, it can especially be made into a great summer blockbuster film. Sure there are some things that may need to be changed or updated for modern day

Sure there are some things that may need to be changed or updated for modern day sensibilities, but the basic story on it's own is perfect for the big screen treatment. I just don't get why no one will adapt the actual story and Hollywood seems to find it necessary to constantly modify or re-do the story of Peter Pan as if it adds something to the original work.

It looks good, but the studio should just call the movie PETER Pan. They think having a new title will make people think it's something new or something like that so people will see it. It's like the crappy, idiotic title, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and not just Rise of the Apes.

Well to be fair, its not actually the same Peter Pan story, its a prequel. So having a different title kind of makes sense.

Interesting

Absolutely no one was asking for this, but I've got to admit it looks pretty interesting. Joe Wright is one of the more inventive directors out there, so hopefully he steers this property into unexplored territory.
