Pan and The Intern Trailers
While the recent crop of trailers has been rather disappointing, a new Joe Wright preview just dropped a few hours ago. Wright, who's best known for a wide array of films such as Atonement and Hanna, will be releasing his visionary take on the tale of Neverland with the October release, Pan. Levi Miller stars as Peter Pan in this origin story which pits the young boy and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) against a villainous pirate named Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). If you're wondering what's the deal with the iconic character, Captain Hook, well it appears that Pan will help develop an early understanding of Hook before he become the nemesis to Peter that we all know.
It was nice to see Anne Hathaway follow up her Oscar win with last year's strong role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. However, we all know that Hathaway has a soft spot for the comedy genre where she got an early start in films like The Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada. This September she'll take center stage alongside another Academy Award winner, Robert Deniro, in The Intern. Deniro plays a 70 year-old widower named Ben who decides that retirement isn't for him and takes on a senior intern position at an online fashion website headed by Jules Ostin (Hathaway). From the writer of The Father of the Bride and the writer/director of It's Complicated, perhaps The Intern will be a valuable source of wholesome laughs.
