Joe Wright's Peter Pan Origins Story With Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund Takes Flight: WATCH

Pan1

Released Tuesday, a trailer for Joe Wright's latest film extravaganza, Pan, takes you into a re-imagined origins story for the beloved character of children's literature:

Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan. 

Wright's previous films include the lush and lavish Pride and Prejudice, Atonement and Anna Karenina.

The film's A-list cast includes Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, hunky Garrett Hedlund as a young James Hook, and the Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara, as Tiger Lily. Newcomer Levi Miller takes on the eponymous role of Peter.

Greg Berlanti is producing alongside Sarah Schechter and Paul Webster.

First Full Trailer For 'Jurassic World' Debuts: VIDEO

Pratt1

The first full trailer for the hotly anticipated Jurassic World has finally hit. The latest promo reveals that Jurassic World will continue to delve into its franchise's tried and true exploration of mankind's arrogance and lack of respect for nature. The video also delivers a healthy dose of Chris Pratt (one of the sexiest men alive) and Bryce Dallas Howard who proudly proclaims that she and the other Jurassic Park scientists have created a new hybrid dinosaur. A revelation that leaves Pratt gobsmacked: "You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea." A more succinct way of saying, "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and BD Wong opens in theaters June 12 of next year.

'Eastenders' Actor Cut From BBC Telethon Following Gay Joke - VIDEO

S club 7

An actor on English soap opera Eastenders was reportedly cut from a quiz segment on the BBC telethon ‘Children In Need’ following a gay joke, according to Yahoo!

Shane RitchieShane Ritchie is alleged to have said “Hurry up! Last person in is gay” while he and members of reformed 90s pop band S Club 7 were trying to fit into an elevator together.

S Club 7 band member Jon Lee came out in 2010.

Following the remark, three members of the band are thought to have refused to appear alongside Ritchie.

A source close to the actor confirmed that Ritchie made the joke but did not mean it in an offensive manner.

Back in January, a kiss between two gay characters on Eastenders led to an outburst of homophobic comments on social media. In April, the soap's resident beefcake Ben Hardy appeared on the cover of Attitude.

UK Children's Channel to Broadcast Transgender Teen Documentary - VIDEO

 

I Am Leo CBBC

UK children’s TV channel CBBC will today broadcast a feature about a transgender boy for the first time, reports Pink News.

‘I Am Leo,’ aimed at 6- to 12-year-olds, will air this afternoon as part of the CBBC’s anti-bullying week.

The short film follows 13-year-old Leo, born Lily, who has lived as a boy since the age of 5 and legally changed his name when he was 11.

The BBC’s Kez Margrie told the state broadcaster’s in-house magazine:

“I had wanted to do a story on a transgender child for a while, because I know there are kids out there having a tough time. But up to now, we hadn’t found the right story to tell.

“It feels very much like [Leo’s] journey and story, as told by him. It’s not about the science or the medicine, it is fundamentally about identity and passion – about a boy taking a stand, saying ‘This is who I am’. He has an identity that others find tricky to accept. That’s a pretty universal story.”

Cat Lewis of production company Nine Lives added:

“The great thing about making documentaries like this for children is that they’re not born with prejudices. There is a risk that the BBC will be criticised for commissioning this film, but it’s important that CBBC has been so supportive of it.”
