There have been a number of delays already on Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which bears the extensive full name Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. They.ve encountered problems with the script, scheduling issues among the large cast, and now an injury to star Johnny Depp.s hand has delayed things even further. According to The Hollywood Reporter, production has been halted until April 15 after Depp left to return to the U.S. for hand surgery. He injured his finger in an off-set incident early in March and had to have a pin inserted, which sounds unpleasant. Initially, the official word from production was that the wound would only have "minimal impact" on filming, and that the production would be delayed no more than two weeks. The break is now being extended to four weeks. Johnny Depp departed on March 10, and for a while they kept »
Depp left the set three weeks ago following an off-set hand injury in Queensland. The actor headed back to the United States for surgery which had to include a pin being inserted into his hand to help fix the problem in the long term.
Depp was originally only going to be away for two weeks, and filming continued on scenes not involving Depp. However, this past Thursday some 200 crew (around half of the entire production) were told that they would not be working for the next few weeks - not until production is slated to get underway again on April 15th.
The delay is not expected to have any impact on the film's July 7th 2017 release date.

Production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will resume in full next month.
Filming was originally thought to be disrupted for two weeks while Depp sought treatment for his injury, which he sustained off set in early March.
Production has continued on scenes not involving Depp, but around half of the film's 400-strong crew have been out of work since Depp's injury.
The fifth instalment of the Pirates series still has 14 weeks of filming left to complete.

It'll be a bit longer before Captain Jack Sparrow sails the high seas. Production on Walt Disney Pictures' Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is expected resume around Apr. 15 on Australia's Gold Coast, according to Australian media reports. Filming shut down for several weeks after Johnny Depp flew to the U.S. March 11 in order to receive hand surgery. Cameras continued to roll during scenes in which Depp's character do not appear. The delay was originally expected to last two weeks, as producers believed that the 51-year-old actor's hand injury would have a "minimal impact" on the shoot. However, that break has now extended to at least four weeks after Depp needed »
Johnny Depp's nebulous hand injury from earlier in the month has put production of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on pause for roughly four weeks, The Hollywood Reporter writes. After suffering an off-set incident in Australia, Depp flew for surgery in the U.S., where he reportedly needed a pin put in his finger. Producers thought their production schedule would only be off by two weeks; however, Fairfax Media reports that the movie's crew said there would be no work for at least another two weeks. Filming should start up again in mid-April, and the release date of the film apparently still hasn't changed ... yet. Get well soon, Captain Jack! »

Filming on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is expected resume around April 15 on Australia’s Gold Coast after the production shut down for several weeks following star Johnny Depp’s return to the U.S. for hand surgery.

Script issues, tricky actor schedules and many, many other things delayed the shooting of the fifth outing of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise - officially titled Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales - but now, with Johnny Depp's injured hand situation getting a little more complicated, the film's production has been delayed yet further.In early March, Depp injured a finger in an "off-set incident", resulting in a delay to production originally pencilled in as two-weeks long. Now, with a pin inserted into Depp's hand to help fix the problem in the long term, in the short term, the cameras won't be point in Depp's direction soon.That leaves co-stars Javier Bardem and Geoffrey Rush twiddling their hopefully still moveable thumbs, and directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (of Kon-Tiki fame) no doubt increasingly stressed.Meanwhile, 400 or so crew have done what they can to »
Final Update, Sunday 10 Am: Star power actually worked at the box office this weekend. For weeks, we’ve seen stars who couldn’t open films with their names: Johnny Depp, Liam Neeson and Vince Vaughn. The films failed for an array of reasons from mismatched genres to fatigued formulas. But this weekend, it was clear – star power can still drive a film’s success. While we can’t see the stars onscreen in DreamWorks Animation’s Home (distributed by 20th Century Fox), the… »
With director Robert Schwentke’s Divergent sequel, Insurgent, opening last weekend, I recently sat down with Theo James for an exclusive interview. He talked about what it was like on the set of the sequel, favorite drinks, how there were a lot of barbecues on set, making London Fields with Johnny Depp, the status of Underworld 5, the fact that they start shooting the next Divergent sequel, Allegiant, in May, and more. In The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series, the principal characters are on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz.

I actually thought this project was dead. Our last update on it was 3 years ago, when it was announced that Beyoncé had dropped out of Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" remake, citing a jam-packed schedule; and jazz singer Esperanza Spalding was said to be Eastwood's next choice for the role. Although it was never reported officially that Spalding was ever cast. Warner Bros. had no comment, with the project, at the time, still searching for its male lead, in what had been a casting carousel that included Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Johnny Depp and, most recently, Bradley Cooper, who »

It’s not uncommon for R-rated movies to put out an “unrated” (and therefore sexier and/or bloodier) cut for the home video market. But Mortdecai, unconventional rogue that he is, is going the other direction. Lionsgate is releasing a PG-13 version of the Johnny Depp flop through Digital HD. You know, to reach all those ninth graders who were dying […]

While "Fifty Shades of Grey" is getting an unrated cut when it hits home video, two other films are undergoing some modifications in attempts to appeal to a wider audience.
First up, the Johnny Depp-led caper comedy flop "Mortdecai". The film itself will hit DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD services on May 5th in its theatrical R-rated cut. However, Lionsgate is also offering an edited PG-13 version for streaming.
The new rating is for "sexuality including references and innuendo, action/violence and brief strong language" and the press release claims: "And now, even more comedy lovers can experience the hilarity with the uproarious PG-13 cut of the film, Mortdecai PG-13, available exclusively on Digital HD and On Demand."

While we have yet to declare that Johnny Depp's career is in danger — with roles in "Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" and "Alice In Wonderland 2" he'll still be swinging a big blockbuster stick yet — it would seem audiences at least are wary of the actor when he's not Jack Sparrow. Indeed, no one could be bothered to show up for the actor's R-rated caper comedy "Mortdecai" when it opened and subsequently bombed in wide release in January. A movie once dreamed of as a potential franchise, Lionsgate quickly saw those hopes dashed when it barely mustered $7.5 million at the domestic box office (coughing up $30 million total worldwide), so they are hoping to recoup that $60 million budget any way they can. Even if it means cutting the film. Forbes reveals that "Mortdecai" is curiously being offered in a couple of different flavors: the R-rated version »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…
All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

“I was raised to be charming, not sincere.”
When Michael Haffner reviewed Disney’s Into The Woods here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote “.….Into The Woods soars when it focuses on the music and character development. The multiple stories occasionally slow down the film, and the fact that some aren’t entirely given a clear resolution speak to how overstuffed it often feels.” (read all of Michael’s review Here).
Unfamiliar with the stage version, I recognized Into The Woods’ flaws but enjoyed it for the most part. It performed well at the Bo but wasn’t well-received by critics last Christmas. Perhaps most disappointed were people waiting for a more typical Disney story with perfect adorable characters expressing themselves through singing. It’s not a movie for the whole family like we all are used to from the studio. I was looking for more from Johnny Depp, »

It’s late afternoon, halfway through a 12-hour-long rehearsal day for Finding Neverland, the musical version of the 2004 Johnny Depp movie about the playwright J.M. Barrie — creator, 111 years ago, of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, which made his career and also inspired the 1953 Disney animated movie, the 1960 stage-to-screen version starring Mary Martin, the peanut-butter brand, the bus company, the solidly mediocre NBC live event starring Allison Williams last year, and Michael Jackson’s ranch (not to mention the so-called syndrome, which describes commitment-phobic arrested development). At the moment, Matthew Morrison, who plays Barrie, is stage right in the 1,505-seat Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, practicing his dance spins. The previews of Finding Neverland are timed almost exactly to the wrap of Morrison’s six-year run as the earnestly encouraging Ohio high-school singing-club coach Will Schuester on Fox’s once-game-changing sing-along dramedy Glee. Morrison has traded his Mr. Schue sweater-vest for an Edwardian »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.
Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »
