– Originally slated to be released on June 26, 2015, Pan was moved to October 9th partly to avoid competition against Ant-Man and other movies. We always thought this was done a bit last-minute since they had had some heavy advertising already in place. Set as a prequel to Peter Pan, Pan is set as the “untold story” of Peter Pan and how he got to Neverland. A 12-year-old Peter is kidnapped from a London orphanage. Finding that Neverland is controlled by the evil Blackbeard, Peter befriends James Hook (who of course will become Captain Hook so this makes things a little more depressing) and Tiger Lily to overthrow Blackbeard’s rule and become “Peter Pan.”
– Stars Hugh Jackman, Cara Delevingne, Rooney Mara, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund, and Amanda Seyfried. Directed by Joe Wright. Rated PG.
– The Walk tells the true story of Philippe Petit, a French high-wire performer, who performed an illegal high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Philippe and his accomplices were eventually arrested but released for the feat that had Philippe cross between the towers 4 times. Though the stunts were done on a soundstage, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was trained personally by Philippe Petit on how to walk on a high-wire, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt learned to speak French fluently for the film.
– Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, and Steve Valentine. Directed by Robert Zemeckis. Rated PG.
