It’s one of those weeks, a week when we seem to get a whole bunch of trailers in one go because with the holiday weekend approaching it’s presumed that a lot of us are going to spend it in a movie theater. We’ve already got Jurassic World, we’re going see Star Wars: The Force Awakens either at the end of the week or before, so now it’s time for Pan, the latest in a line of movies aiming to turn well-established fairy tales on their head. Will Pan do for Peter what Oz: The Great and Powerful did for the Wizard, or what Maleficent did for the Sleeping Beauty villainess? Unknown, but I’ll say this: it’s a damn good looking trailer.

Good news, everyone. It’s true. The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released this weekend.
