This trailer for PAN will leave you believing

1 min read


The first time I saw the teaser trailer for the new Joe Wright movie Pan I wasn’t convinced it would appeal to audiences today. How wrong I think I was. After this official trailer I think this is going to be a really fun and visually spectacular movie. It is certainly a different take on the original story, set before Hook became Pan’s nemesis, in fact he’s in this movie (played by Garret Hedlund) as a good guy, the twist! Instead of the croc hating one-handed pirate we have Black Beard, played by a rather different looking, almost Johnny Depp looking in fact, Hugh Jackman. Gone are the retractable claws and ripped torso and instead we have Jackman sporting an epic beard, a black beard. The film also introduces child star Levi Miller who was in the 2012 movie Great Adventures as our new Pan and he suits the role perfectly. Have a watch and enjoy the magic!

It looks colourful, fun and full of magic, something I am sure the kids (and adults) will respond well to. Coming off the success of the 2015 Cinderella Disney are doing a great job punching out movies and racking in the cash. Pan is set to fly to your cinema screens 9 October in both 2D and 3D.

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
