Last week, some new images from a slew of upcoming films were unveiled in the spirit of previewing the impending Summer Movie Season. Today, even more new images have been released from three very interesting—and very different—Warner Bros. films.
Director Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) re-envisions the classic J.M. Barrie tale Pan in the action adventure pic, which stars Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter. The film opens in theaters on July 24th.
The highly anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL finds director Steven Soderbergh steeping back into the roles of cinematographer, camera operator, and editor while Gregory Jacobs takes the helm. Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, and Gabriel Iglesias reprise their roles and are joined by newcomers Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Jada Pinkett Smith. The film opens in theaters on July 1st.
And finally, the Vacation reboot—simply titled Vacation—marks the directorial debut of Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and stars Ed Helms as the grown up Rusty Griswold. Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chevy Chase, and Beverly D’Anglo also star. The comedy opens in theaters on July 31st.
Check out the new images and official synopses below.
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.
Magic Mike XXL
Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, “Magic Mike XXL” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them.
On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. New Line Cinema’s “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.
Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.
