Peter Pan (WB) News

It's been reported that Warner Bros. might lose as much as $150 million on its critically panned PAN, and according to The Wrap, the film's box office failures may have also cost Joe Wright his next directing gig. Insiders tell the site that earlier this month Wright was in negotiations to direct Lionsgate's planned Julius Caesar flick EMPEROR, however those talks ended once PAN bombed at... Read More...

That Was One Terrible Weekend at The Box Office Universal Pictures It’s a harsh guarantee in Hollywood that every so often a film is going to have a bad opening at the box office. But it’s a true testament to how unconquerable and unpredictable of a beast the box office can be when every wide-release of the weekend horribly fails.

The debacle that was “Pan” this weekend could ultimately set back distributor Warner Bros. and partner RatPac-Dune Entertainment more than $100 million. The  prequel, directed by Joe Wright starring Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlund and Rooney Mara, brought in just $15 million in its opening weekend domestically. That’s just a tenth of its production budget. That means it will likely top out under $50 million in North America, and it appears on course for another $160 million overseas.

Box Office Results: 'The Martian' Soars Into The Top Spot Again has released the final box-office numbers for this weekend with the winner going to 20th Century Fox's sci-fi film, "The Martian" starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Sebastian Stan, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, and Donald Glover. Director Ridley Scott's "The Martian" claimed first place for both the international and domestic box-office with $95.1 million and $37.0 million respectively.

Should Your Kids See 'Pan'? We didn’t really know what to expect when we attended a screening of Pan, the new prequel to the classic J.M. Barrie play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up (and subsequent novels based upon the character). But we knew there would be pirates and the kids wanted to see it. Besides, who doesn’t love popcorn for breakfast? While I am the first to admit that I carry a bias toward the Disney version of Peter Pan, I like to think I’m fairly open-minded when it comes...Read MoreRead Comments

Even though NBC’s comedy series The Office faltered in the seasons that followed the departure of Steve Carell, one of the most peculiar and entertaining characters to arrive during this time was replacement boss Robert California, played masterfully by James Spader, who went on to become the titular villainous artificially intelligent robot in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. But what if instead of recording all-new dialogue for the movie, Marvel Studios decided to just use lines delivered by Spader as Robert California?

Joe Wright's built a reputation for himself as a smart and adventurous director of literary adaptations, and he appears to have burned that to the ground with the wrong-headed 'Pan,' an unwelcome prequel that seems to almost hate J.M. Barrie's original source material.


Film Review: PAN

Latino Review - Mon, 2015-10-05 14:46

12-year-old orphan Peter is spirited away to the magical world of Neverland, where he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny -- to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.Seems every time the story of Peter Pan is brought to the big screen in the last 30 years, there has to be a catch. Hook managed to pull that off quite well. The question of "what if Peter Pan grew up?" turned into a rather entertaining story of lost imagination.

Hugh Jackman has trouble with his sword in 'Pan' bloopers Hugh Jackman hit a bit of a snag playing the dread pirate Blackbeard in Pan — and then he put it on Instagram. The ever-poised actor posted a brief blooper reel Friday of him trying to make a dramatic entrance by slicing through a cloth screen, only to fail repeatedly, and humorously. (...
