The future is looking brighter for Joe Wright fans: After Pan flopped in theaters and was labeled a disaster by critics (one could say it was panned), he directed an upcoming episode of Black Mirror, and how he’s back in the saddle again with Darkest Hour, which has just gotten a release date from Focus Features, along with some new cast members.

It’s difficult to say what new Black Mirror episodes might look like, given a Netflix order four times its usual season length, but that hasn’t stopped the Twilight Zone-esque tech anthology from beefing up its talent. Not only did Alice Eve and Bryce Dallas Howard join in February, but now Roots star Malachi Kirby will lead a fiery new parable.

After the previous promotional images and trailers for Joe Wright’s slightly-delayed Pan movie, you probably don’t even need to see these new character posters to have an idea of what they’d look like. But here they are anyway, in all their vibrant, well-lit and detailed glory. And wouldn’t you know it, but Hugh Jackman is still rocking that sick cartoon villain mustache.

On the master list of characters who deserve exhausting origin stories that go into every single detail about how they came to be, Peter Pan is somewhere near the very bottom. So we can get all smug and dismissive of the new Pan trailer, which has its fair share or eye-rolling moments, or we can get excited that director Joe Wright has a new film on the horizon and hope for the best.

The trailers and images from Joe Wright’s Pan haven’t exactly inspired confidence in the upcoming prequel/origin story of everyone’s favorite lost boy (sorry, Kiefer Sutherland). Just about the only promising aspect is the involvement of Wright, who has a pretty great track record with previous films like Hanna and Atonement. But now Warner Bros. is giving us a little more time to get excited for the film by pushing the release date back by five months.

In case you had forgotten, there’s a new Peter Pan origin story hitting theaters this year, in which Hugh Jackman sports a questionable hair piece and even more questionable facial hair. To remind you, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming Pan, which comes from the beloved Joe Wright, the director of some movies you really enjoy, like Hanna and Atonement.

Director Joe Wright beefed up his upcoming Peter Pan movie, 'Pan,' with some well-known celebs, from Hugh Jackman to Garrett Hedlund to the newly cast Rooney Mara, but for the title role, he wanted some fresh blood -- and he got it! Young actor Levi Miller landed the role of the most famous crow-calling, pirate-grappling, high-flying kid from Neverland.
