Movie Pics: Hugh Jackman's Pirate in 'Pan' and a Whole Lot of 'Goosebumps' Monsters Revealed

Nov 24, 2014

Pan Jackman and Miller

Hugh Jackman is trading in his adamantium claws for sword in these first photos from Joe Wright’s upcoming film Pan.

Entertainment Weekly scored the exclusive new pictures, which show Jackman looking menacing as pirate Blackbeard (and not Captain Hook…) as he squares off against Levi Miller, who’s playing the young Peter Pan.

The new film is a riff on the classic Peter Pan story, wherein it’s Blackbeard who serves as the pirate antagonist. Captain Hook (played by Garret Hedlund), meanwhile, has morphed into a “dashing Indiana Jones-type figure.” Why would you do this?

Pan, which also features performances from Amanda Seyfried and Rooney Mara, will fly into theaters across the country on July 17 of next year. Until then, enjoy these photos. [via Coming Soon]

 

Goosebumps reveals classic monsters as part of a promotional campaign:

If you were in grade school back in the ‘90s, odds are that you read a few of author R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books. Now that franchise is coming to the big screen, and we’ve got your first look at some of the new monsters who will be terrorizing the cast of Rob Letterman’s film.

The new feature takes some of horror’s classic archetypes (along with your favorite characters from the books) and gives them an updated look for the feature film. From creepy clowns to spooky ventriloquist dummies, all the oldies and goodies are covered in these new photos.

Here’s the plot breakdown:

"In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong."
