Hugh Jackman underwent a dramatic makeover for his latest role, and he gave us a few previews of his scary Seven Seas–appropriate look. On his Instagram account this week the actor shared a poster (above) from and a short teaser clip for his new movie Pan, in which he plays the villainous pirate BlackBeard. With a shaved head, a ghostly pale face, and some interesting teeth, the teaser shows a very different side of Jackman!

From director Joe Wright, the film is a prequel to Peter Pan that focuses on a very young Peter's orphan origins and how he came to rule Neverland. Levi Miller stars as a young Peter with Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Amanda Seyfried as Mary Darling, Cara Delevingne as a mermaid, and Garret Hedlund as James Hook, who actually is Pan's ally in this iteration of the tale. From what the teaser shows, it seems Pan will need as many friends as he can get to face off against Jackman's Blackbeard. “Be brave, Peter,” he menacingly says in the teaser. “Make them believe.”

Pan hits theaters on July 17. Watch new the teaser here:
