Hugh Jackman has trouble with his sword in Pan bloopers

Hugh Jackman hit a bit of a snag playing the dread pirate Blackbeard in Pan — and then he put it on Instagram.

The ever-poised actor posted a brief blooper reel Friday of him trying to make a dramatic entrance by slicing through a cloth screen, only to fail repeatedly, and humorously. (Perhaps he would have fared better with his trusty Wolverine claws?)

Jackman was a good sport, of course, noting in his caption that “There’s a treasure chest of these sensationally embarrassing moments” from the set of director Joe Wright’s Peter Pan origin tale.


Was gifted with bloopers from the making of @panmovie. There’s a treasure chest of these sensationally embarrassing moments! Joe Wright you are genius! #PanMovie #DiscoverYourNeverland
