Pirates 5

It’s been six years since the last sequel in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise arrived, and it wasn’t exactly a shining example of an entertaining high seas adventure. In fact, I couldn’t even tell you what happened in that movie. That’s how memorable On Stranger Tides was when it arrived around this same time in 2011.

Now we have Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arriving in theaters this weekend. How did it turn out? Is it closer to capturing what made the first installment of the franchise so great, or does the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow fall in line with the lackluster sequels that followed? The /Film crew sounds off with their own thoughts below, and then you can let us know what you think in the comments. Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales box-office

The reviews are in, and they aren’t pretty for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The fifth Pirates film isn’t as lifeless as On Stranger Tides, but it’s not much livelier. But based on early box-office predictions, another underwhelming sequel likely won’t put an end to the 14-year-old franchise.

The fifth Pirates film is expected to make $80 million domestically over Memorial Day weekend. Below, check out the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales worldwide box office tracking.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Clips

There hasn’t been enough inebriated action coming from Walt Disney Pictures, but that will change soon now that a new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel is arriving in theaters this summer.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales brings back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow for another round of high seas adventure and drunken antics. In a batch of new clips and TV spots from the sequel, Jack Sparrow gets in trouble with the law yet again, and he’s also being pursued by a cursed pirate hunter named Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). Plus, he finds himself accompanied by Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) the offspring of his previous partner in piracy, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).

Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky was prepping an Evel Knievel biopic as his directorial follow-up to 2014’s Noah, but he ultimately moved on from that project and instead got the ball rolling on Mother!, a mysterious film with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in the lead roles.

We known the film follows “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence,” but that’s all that’s been announced so far. Thanks to a new report, we now at least know the filmmaker will be returning to familiar genre territory in his newest movie. Read on to learn more about Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales TV Spot

The next chapter of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise doesn’t arrive until the end of May, but Disney is making a big marketing push for the high seas adventure. The Final Four will have the eyes of millions of sports fans this weekend, so that means we get a new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales TV spot. This one gives us just a little extra snippet of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, who now appears to be among a band of cursed pirates, meeting Brenton Thwaites as his son, Henry Turner. However, there is surprisingly little Johnny Depp, which hopefully means the series goes back to being more of a proper ensemble adventure.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer

Captain Jack is back. Disney has just unveiled the first full Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer — and unlike the teaser trailer or the Super Bowl spot, which barely showed Johnny Depp at all, there’s plenty of him in this one. There’s even a younger version of Jack floating around, in case you don’t like him in his present state.

This time, he’s being pursued by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a royally pissed-off ghost who’s out to kill every pirate in the sea. But especially Jack, whom he blames for a tragedy in his past. Fortunately for Jack, he’s got some help in the form of two new sidekicks played by Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario .

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Super Bowl Spot

We last saw Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) almost six years ago in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a fairly bloated, lifeless and forgettable sequel. At the time, though, audiences welcomed the return of Jack Sparrow. The sequel made over a billion dollars worldwide, making Depp’s last legit hit. Now, almost 14 years after first playing the character, the actor is back as the shifty pirate.

However, revealing who this returning cast member might be is a bit of a spoiler for those wanting to stay in the dark regarding any surprises, so you’ll have to find out who it is after the jump. Read More »
