Our next live-action fairy tale retelling comes not from Disney, but from Warner Bros. and the mind of Joe Wright. Pan is an origin story of sorts for both Peter Pan (Levi Miller) and his mortal enemy, Captain Hook (played here by Garrett Hedlund in dashing Indiana Jones mode). Rounding out the cast are Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. Watch the Pan trailer after the jump. Read More »

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »
The story of Peter Pan is reconfigured in Pan, from Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright. While J.M. Barrie‘s most well-known creation, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, is a perpetually immature child, there’s still room in his youth for a backstory.
And this version of Peter seems quite different, with — at least briefly — a strong sense of purpose and determination. See him in action along with Garrett Hedlund as a young James Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard (who even has a ship that bears his own face) in the new Pan trailer.

At the end of Mojave, a devilish drifter played by Oscar Isaac poses a question to a jaded Hollywood star played by Garrett Hedlund: “Do you know yet which one of us is the bad guy?” That, I guess, is the question being posed by writer-director William Monahan (The Departed) in this odd thriller. But the question I walked away from was an entirely different one: “What’s the difference between poetry and pretentious pablum?” Read More »

Have you ever sat around pining for a film to double with Country Strong in an evening of music-themed Garrett Hedlund movies that will make you cry your face off? (Or movies that want to make you cry, at least.) The answer to your prayers may have arrived. The Lullaby trailer reveals an indie family drama featuring Hedlund as a guy who finds that his father is going to take himself off life support within 48 hours.
That leaves the family with just a couple days to come to terms with a whole lot of things, most of which is pretty serious, heart-rending stuff. With a cast that also includes Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Anne Archer, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Barden, are a lot of faces to pull you in, should Hedlund not be to your liking. Check out the Lullaby trailer below.

Briefly: The dark Peter Pan origin story Pan may have one of its main characters: Garrett Hedlund has been offered the role of Captain Hook. Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) is set to direct, with the film slated for a summer 2015 release.
But Hedlund won’t be the villain; the film starts off with Peter and the future Captain Hook as friends. Hook has a crew job on Blackbeard’s ship, and the Jason Fuchs script features Blackbeard as the villain. Hugh Jackman has been linked to the Blackbeard role, but there’s no Pan yet. [THR]
