PIrates of the Caribbean 5 Cast

A few short weeks before Bay’s next action opus comes out, Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man Tell No Tales hits theaters on May 26. While the international poster was sensory overload, the German poster for Joachim Rønnin and Espen Sandberg‘s adventure film is much simpler and an improvement, although, at the end of the day, it’s still two floating heads:

Soon after Pirates 5 comes out, I wouldn’t mind seeing Javier Bardem play the hero in a popcorn movie. He’s played so many villains already!

Judy Greer

The great Judy Greer (The Descendants) doesn’t have a substantial role in Jurassic World. She played Karen, the mother of Gray and Zach, who aren’t confirmed to return in any capacity for J.A. Bayona‘s sequel. Since they’re absent, Greer’s involvement seems very unlikely. When the actress, who’s in post-production on her directorial debut, was asked by Cinemablend whether she’s in the untitled Jurassic World sequel, she replied: “Not as far as I know yet.”

How to Train Your Dragon 2

One actor we do know is returning for a big sequel is Jay Baruchel, who’s voicing Hiccup again for Dean DeBlois‘ How to Train Your Dragon 3. The director behind this year’s highly-anticipated Goon: The Last of the Enforcers has already done a few recording sessions for the sequel. Baruchel couldn’t tell Joblo too much about the sequel, but he doesn’t think anyone will be disappointed by what he sees as the strongest of the three stories:

I’m not allowed to say anything. This is what I’ll say, and for whatever it’s worth I do swear that this is not just promo nonsense, it’s by far, the strongest of the stories (of the three). It’s the movie that the series requires and deserves and it’s the rightful third chapter or third act, I should say. I don’t think anybody will be disappointed.

The sequel comes out March 1, 2019. It was originally scheduled to come out last summer before it got pushed to 2017, and then 2018, before finally landing on a date around the five-year anniversary mark of How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Director Brett Ratner is not a fan of Rotten Tomatoes. Not because most of his movies have low scores on the site, but partially for reducing movies down to a number. He recently told Entertainment Weekly it’s “the worst thing that we have in today’s movie culture is Rotten Tomatoes,” for both fair and unfair reasons.

Ratner’s thoughts, and Rotten Tomatoes’ response, are worth reading, but he also shared that he thinks Rush Hour 4 is still a real possibility. “I think it will happen; we’re talking to writers,” he said. “We could call it Grumpy Old Rush Hour.” Now and then Chan, Ratner, and Tucker express interest in returning to the Rush Hour franchise, which got off to a good start but ended things poorly with Rush Hour 3, which, as you probably all recall, co-starred filmmaker Roman Polanski.
