Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits $650 million worldwide

19 June 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is showing some steady sea legs at the box office, with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales having pushed its worldwide haul to $650 million this past weekend.

The film, directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and released in the UK as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, has grossed a modest $150 million domestically – over $90 million less than the previous instalment On Stranger Tides, which was itself a franchise low. However, it has been performing very well on the international stage, where is has grossed a further $500 million, including $145 million from China alone.

Worldwide, Dead Men Tell No Tales is now just $4 million short of the total haul of the first instalment, The Curse of the Black Pearl, which earned $654.3 million back in 2003.

Spoilers: How Geoffrey Rush feels about that big revelation in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

29 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales follow…

Geoffrey Rush’s Captain Barbossa may have started off as a pure villain in the franchise, but he quickly became a fan-favorite, easily rivaling Captain Jack himself in popularity. Throughout the series we have seen Barbossa involved in all sorts of antics with and, without Jack Sparrow and company. However, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales takes things a step further with the character, and gives audiences a peek into his history, revealing…(Spoilers)… that Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) is actually the long-lost daughter of Hector Barbossa. What does actor Geoffrey Rush think about this big reveal? Talking to Cinema Blend, the actor weighs in:

“It’s a bit like the Dickens novels that, episode by episode, happen over a long period of time and the readers have a contribution to it. I liked »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens to $270 million as Baywatch sinks at the box office

29 May 2017 3:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fifth instalment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise set sail this past weekend, with Dead Men Tell No Tales opening to $270.6 million worldwide.

The film claimed $62.2 million domestically, the lowest opening for the series since the first instalment Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl opened with $46.6 million back in 2003. Neverthless, this pushed Disney beyond the $1 billion mark for the year in North America, while the film added a further $208.4 from international markets, including a whopping $67.8 million from China, and a record-setting $18.1 million in Russia. It is expected to pass the $300 million mark today.

It certainly wasn’t plain sailing for Baywatch at the box office this weekend though, with the R-rated comedy debuting to a disappointing $22.7 million in North America. Given that Paramount Pictures has plans for a sequel, the studio »

Pirates of the Caribbean won’t continue without Johnny Depp

28 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While the franchise survived the departure of two of its original stars in Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley with 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that the series will only continue for as long as Johnny Depp is willing to return as Captain Jack Sparrow.

““I just don’t see it [working on Pirates without Depp],” Bruckheimer told Digital Spy during a press interview to promote the release of the new film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. “The secret to any successful franchise is picking talented people, and Johnny is absolutely key to the success of Pirates. He’s such a unique character, such an endearing character, and such an irreverent character all in one.”

Bruckheimer also seemingly ruled out a small screen spinoff of the blockbuster series, adding that: “You have a kitchen in your house, right? But you still go out to eat. »

Jack Sparrow will be very different in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

28 April 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Johnny Depp’s character Jack Sparrow apparently won’t be quite as we remember him when he turns up in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

With the series being away for the past six years, 2017’s return to the franchise will hopefully breathe new life into a set of films that began way back in 2003.

Depp’s character has since become iconic, and for good or ill, has defined his career thereafter.

Speaking to SFX Magazine, co-director of the upcoming movie Joachim Ronning, has said that the swashbuckling adventurer that we know and love isn’t the same old Jack.

“He’s lost his luck. And luck was a big part of his lifestyle. He’s lost his way. He’s lost his horizon. He’s not on the ocean anymore when we find him. He’s a land pirate and he’s miserable. He’s alone. »

A familiar face returns in the spoiler-heavy Japanese Trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 5

19 April 2017 5:54 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The latest Pirates of the Caribbean film hoves into view next month, and with a fair more travelers than expected. Already the fifth film, subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales in the Us and Salazar’s Revenge in the UK, has quite a cast but this new Japanese trailer gives up a cameo appearance of a character from the past. Obviously if you don’t want to know who it is then sail away to safer waters.

Ready?

It seems Keira Knightley’s Elizabeth Swann will be returning to the fold as the diabolical Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar searches for his quarry – Captain Jack Sparrow. It may well be a rum-induced hallucination given the narrative built around an already busy cast, but the new trailer does show off a shot of Knightley in the mix.
