Hugh Jackman stars in new teaser for Pan

Hugh Jackman has revealed a first teaser for Joe Wright’s Pan, in which the Aussie actor looks to be having a whale of a time as the legendary pirate, Blackbeard.

“Welcome to Neverland,” bellows Jackman at the top of the trailer, as young Levi Miller’s Peter Pan finds himself immersed in a weird and wonderful land of flying galleons and fairy dust. It looks like it’s going to be quite the ride…

It's only a brief glimpse of the world Wright has managed to create, but from what we’ve seen so far it certainly seems as though it’s going to be a visual treat. If only thanks to Jackman’s eyeshadow and beard combo…

Directed by Wright and co-starring Rooney Mara, Cara Delavingne and Amanda Seyfried, Pan will open in the UK on 17 July 2015 and the US one week later.
