The latest trailer for director Joe Wright’s “Pan” is heavy on the fantasy, and exposition. Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) explains why he's so fearful of the "boy who could fly," Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and Hook (Garrett Hedlund) spend some quiet time together -- until not-yet-Tic-Toc Croc shows up, and we get a glimpse of what to expect when the airborne pirate ship[s do battle.
In the Warner Bros. origin story, Blackbeard kidnaps young Peter (newcomer Levi Miller) and other orphans from Edwardian London to work the mines in Neverland. There, the boy teams with Hook to escape, oppose their captor and discover his destiny.
Opening Oct. 9, “Pan” also stars Adeel Akhtar as Smee, Taejoo Na as Kwahu, Nonso Anozie as Bishop, Kathy Burke as Mother Barnabas, Kurt Egyiawan as Murray, Lewis MacDougall as Nibs, Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling, Jack Charles as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father, and Amanda Seyfried as Mary.
