Pan

(2015)

From director Joe Wright comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.

Can ‘Pan’ Take Down ‘The Martian’ at the Box Office?

Can ‘Pan’ Take Down ‘The Martian’ at the Box Office?

The Martian fell just shy of breaking Gravity's box office record for highest October opening of $55.7 million, by taking in $55 million in its first weekend. That record will likely be in no danger of falling this weekend either, with only one new movie arriving in wide release, Warner Bros.' Pan, and TriStar's The Walk expanding. With Pan's less than stellar critical reception so far, the projections at BoxOffice.com indicate that Pan likely won't have a shot at the top spot, with The Martian set to win for a second time in a row.

The Martian opened in 3,750 theaters, a count that isn't expected to change too much going into its second weekend at the box office. Ridley Scott's sci-fi drama following the quest to save an astronaut stranded on Mars has been called the best movie of the year by a number of critics. We still have a long way to go until the awards season races truly start to heat up, but The Martian has emerged as one of the top front runners. With an all-star cast including Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Sean Bean, Michael Peña, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Jeff Daniels, The Martian is set to continue the tradition of outer space movies that are both financial and critical hits, including Gravity and Interstellar, which opened in the same frame the past two years. After last weekend's $55 million tally, The Martian should have no trouble securing first place again with an estimated $23.7 million.

‘Pan’ Bloopers Expose Hugh Jackman's Embarrassing Sword Skills

‘Pan’ Bloopers Expose Hugh Jackman's Embarrassing Sword Skills

The bloopers show Black Beard attempting to slice his way through a curtain screen. But the blade doesn't want to cut or tear through the material. What is supposed to be a menacing entrance quickly turns into a goofy bit of showmanship from Hugh Jackman. He takes it in stride the first time. But then, on a second try, he fails even harder. He stumbles through the cloth screen and into the camera with a big grin on his face. You would think after 7 movies starring as a Mutant who is quite skilled at cutting his way through just about anything, he'd have more practice at getting this right. In Pan, he's supposed to be the villain. But he isn't too scary trying to slice his way through a piece of silk, and failing miserably.

A live-action feature, Pan goes back to the very beginning to see how the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie lived and flourished before we ever got to meet them in the pages of a book. We're introduced to newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak. In the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life, those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and suddenly finds himself in a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland.
