The summer movie season hasn’t started yet, but after The Fate of the Furious‘ monster opening weekend at the box office, it almost feels like it’s already begun. Two other mega popcorn movies coming up are The Mummy and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Director Alex Kurtzman will try to launch the monster universe, while Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg attempt to breathe new life into the Pirates franchise.

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.

Scott Alexander and Larry Krzyzewski‘s biopics are typically great, stranger than fiction stories about artists. The duo behind Big Eyes, Man on the Moon, and Ed Wood normally don’t write about conventional figures, and that’s true for a new project they have in the works, King of the Jungle, which John Requa and Glenn Ficarra will direct, with Johnny Depp attached to star as John McAfee.

Even though the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise officially wore out its welcome for me with the abysmal sequel On Stranger Tides, there are still plenty of fans who are excited to see what the next installment of the franchise has to offer. A new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales featurette gives us a good idea of the action in store as it takes us behind the scenes of the next adventure from Kon-Tiki directing duo Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning.

Because box office is king, we’re getting another Pirates of the Caribbean movie whether we like it or not. The jury is still out as to whether this will be the last film in the franchise or if Disney is just on the verge of relieving Johnny Depp of his nautical duties as Captain Jack Sparrow and handing the film series off to new blood instead. All we know is Jack Sparrow’s past comes to haunt him when a pirate hunter (Javier Bardem) he cursed in his younger years comes back to get revenge on the rum-soaked pirate.
A new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer surfaced online this weekend, and while it features some bits that we already saw in the most recently released theatrical trailer, it also gives us some new moments with franchise newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites, as well as some information on where pirates fall on the necessity of pants.

The new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales features some onscreen text that feels like a threat to Disney shareholders and a promise to everyone who wishes Johnny Depp would just go way. “The final adventure begins” the trailer declares in-between shots of Captain Jack Sparrow prancing across dangerous ground and Javier Bardem doing…whatever the hell Javier Bardem is doing in this movie (and whatever it is, I think I dig it).
So, it’s time to ask the big question: is Disney actually planning to cap off the Pirates of the Caribbean series with the fifth movie? Are they doing this, for the lack of a more eloquent term, for realsies?

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 . Watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer below.

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.

When Willem Dafoe signs up for a movie, that film is pretty much guaranteed to have at least one good performance. We expect nothing less of Dafoe, an actor I can’t think of giving an underwhelming performance in recent memory. Not only is he consistent, he’s also great more often than not, so it’s satisfying to learn he’s joined Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express remake.

Production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the multi-billion dollar franchise, has been done for awhile now. But it appears there may be one more addition to the cast that we hadn’t heard about, someone from one of the previous films in the franchise who will be brought back alongside other returning cast members like Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner.
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 »
