The movie Pan, from Warner Bros., is an origin story of Peter Pan.
The movie tells the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
Hugh Jackman stars as Blackbeard.
Garrett Hedlund stars as Hook and newcomer Levi Miller stars as Peter Pan.
Joe Wright, the British director of Hanna, the 2005 Pride & Prejudice (starring Keira Knightley) and Atonement, directed the movie.
Originally scheduled for theatrical release on July 17, 2016, in April 2015 Warner Bros. pushed back the release of Pan to October 9, 2015.
The original Peter Pan movie from Walt Disney Pictures (the animated film) was released in 1953 and earned $15 million during its release that year. The 1982 rerelease saw it take in an additional $17 million. The final time the film appeared in theaters, 1989, it took in an additional $30 million.
The Steven Spielberg movie Hook, which was released in 1991, took in $300 million, worldwide, and $119 million in the United States.
Critics hate the movie Pan. Here’s what the most reputable ones are saying: Pan finds a few bursts of magic in its prequel treatment of classic characters, though not enough to offset the rushed plot and shrill, CGI-fueled action.
The Peter Pan origin story directed by Joe Wright was struggling to gain a foothold well before its opening weekend and opened even worse than even the most dire predictions expected, with just $15 million during its first three days in theaters. The film cost more than $150 to produce.
