Christopher Walken will play Captain Hook in the show, which is expected to air in December. Well, it’s certainly better casting than Carrie Underwood as Fraulein Maria. Hit the jump for all the latest updates on the show.

Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan origin story Pan has a few very recognizable cast members. Hugh Jackman will play Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund will be Hook, and Rooney Mara is in talks to play Tiger Lily. But for Peter, Wright and his producers are looking at younger, new talent. And so Levi Miller, whose most recognizable role at this point is probably an appearance on Terra Nova, has been chosen as the new young Peter. Read More »

The summer of 2015 just got a tiny bit less crowded. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has just pushed the Man of Steel sequel from July 17, 2015 to May 6, 2016. The new date pits the Zack Snyder-helmed film directly against an as-yet-unnamed Marvel Studios project, though in all likelihood one or the other will move before then.
Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan origin tale will now move into the July 17, 2015 slot, having previously been slotted for June 26, 2015. More, including the official press release from Warner Bros., after the jump.

The “reimagined fairy tale” genre is getting tired at this point, but when a really interesting director signs on to one it’s tough to complain. Joe Wright is in talks to helm a Peter Pan origin story for Warner Bros., from a script by Jason Fuchs.
Try not to get this one mixed up with the other J.M. Barrie-inspired pic, Disney’s Peter and the Starcatchers, or the other other one, Sony’s Pan. More details about Wright’s version after the jump.

Even casual Disney fans have likely noticed that the studio’s various animated features often contain subtle nods at each other. Rapunzel from Tangled has Disney fairy tale books in her collection, Nani from Lilo & Stitch has a Mulan poster, et cetera. But what if these aren’t mere sight gags from playful animators. What if, instead, they’re hard evidence that all of these movies take place in the same universe?
In an homage of sorts to Jon Negroni’s The Pixar Theory, Josh Butler posits that 30 of Disney’s animated features share a world. His thesis requires some suspension of disbelief — for one thing, it involves a lot of magic and time travel — but it’s fun to think about nonetheless. Hit the jump to see how Butler’s theory shakes out.

Describing the style of artist Laurent Durieux is challenging. It’s mechanical, but lyrical. Rigid, but whimsical, and still realistic. This interesting cross-section of visual cues makes his work perfect for so many different properties, from The Wizard of Oz or Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, to Buck Rodgers and Jaws.
We’re proud to exclusively debut Durieux’s latest piece, based on the classic J.M. Barrie book Peter and Wendy. You probably know it better as Peter Pan. The Hero Complex Gallery has collaborated with the artist for their next exhibit, Arch Enemies on May 24 and have decided to release this print on a timed basis ahead of the show.
The print is on sale now for a limited time. Find out more about it below. Read More »
Disney fans, and /Film readers, are likely aware that major Hollywood stars have been dressing up like Disney characters. It’s not as bad as it sounds. In the past few years we’ve seen Olivia Wilde as the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Jessica Biel as Pocahontas and many others dressing up to help promote the Disney brand.
The trend now continues. Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz has done her 2012 Disney Dream portraits and they feature Russell Brand as Captain Hook from Peter Pan, and Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel as Phineas, Ezra and Gus, the Hitchhiking Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion. It’s the first time the series has featured characters who originated in a theme park and not in a movie. Check them out below. Read More »
