'Pirates of the Caribbean' Will Sail Into Theaters July 2017

5 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Grab your eyeliner and whimsical headscarves, because the dread pirate Jack Sparrow will be hitting the high seas in 2017. It seems like just yesterday that Johnny Depp debuted his Keith Richards swagger for "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, who co-directed the oceanic adventure "Kon-Tiki" in 2012), will take a crack at directing "Pirates 5," which is tentatively named "Dead Men Tell No Tales." Jeff Nathanson, who also penned "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Rush Hour 3," and "The Terminal," is working on the script. "Pirates 5" was initially slated for 2015, but "The Lone Ranger" certainly took a bite out of Disney's bottom line. The bad press and even worse reviews of "The Lone Ranger" definitely left a bad taste in movie-goers' mouths, so perhaps it was wise to push off "Pirates" another year.

When did big budget star vehicles become the underdogs?

8 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…

Feature

The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?

Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »

Pirates of the Caribbean ship sinks in freak accident

28 May 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A ship used extensively in the Pirates of the Caribbean films has sunk in a freak accident.

The Brig Unicorn, used as The Black Pearl, The Henrietta and The Terrasaw in the movies, sank on Friday (May 23) while en route from St Lucia to St Vincent.

The ship was also used in the '70s TV show Roots.

The nine crew members and captain escaped uninjured, and were safely taken to shore by rescue boats.

The first Pirates of the Caribbean film, The Curse of The Black Pearl, grossed $654million worldwide upon its release in 2003.

The popular series is set to make a return in 2016 with fifth instalment Dead Men Tell No Tales.

The film's release has been pushed back due to issues with the script. The release date, originally set for July 10, 2015, has been delayed until the summer of 2016.

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Jaws' is No. 1

29 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When I was growing up on the Jersey Shore, mere miles from the 1916 shark attacks that Peter Benchley used as inspiration for his best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws had a profound effect on my summers. Whenever I was alone in the water, I inevitably began to fear that I was being stalked by something beneath the surface. The panic would grow and grow — as John Williams’ daaa-dum music grew louder in my head — until I finally felt compelled to make a break for it. Swimming for my life, my flailing arms furiously pounded the water and my lungs felt »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Star Wars'

28 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Star Wars was a movie once. This is a basic fact that we all know. It was a single film released in theaters: A story with a beginning (kind of), a middle, and an end (kind of). There was a relatively small cast, composed of up-and-comers, unknowns, and one well-regarded British actor overdelivering on what looked to him like thin material. The film, released in theaters in 1977, had a simple story. There was a MacGuffin (The Death Star Plans!) and there was a Rescue Mission (Help Me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, You’re My Only Hope!) and there was a Final Battle. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Jurassic Park'

25 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

More than two decades later, and we still can’t look at a cup of water the same.

Just as the rippling water in that now iconic scene signaled the T. rex’s grand entrance, so did Jurassic Park usher in a new era of cinematic innovation. Making a reality of so many childhood dreams, it marries moviemaking wizardry and emotional complexity to electrifying effect. Park also straddles a number of genres (action-adventure, family, thriller, and sci-fi, to name a few) on top of its ready-made merchandising and theme-park ride potential, ultimately offering something for everyone. But the leaps and »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Dark Knight'

24 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s before The Dark Knight, and there’s after The Dark Knight. Before The Dark Knight, superhero movies were big for Hollywood and Christopher Nolan was a culty stylist and everyone loved Batman. After The Dark Knight, superhero movies were the defining Hollywood product and Christopher Nolan was everyone’s favorite Hollywood director and everyone really loved Batman.

You can try to explain The Dark Knight’s success by looking at the underlying factors of where we were at at the time — “we” as a nation, “we” as a global moviegoing public, “we” as a geekifying popular culture. A brutal election year faced America. »

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 script isn't ready yet, says Disney boss

23 April 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The script for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie has not yet received approval from Disney chairman Alan Horn.

The release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has been shifted from its original date of July 10, 2015 to the summer of 2016 in order to further develop the script.

Horn revealed at the Bloomberg Business of Entertainment Breakfast on Tuesday (April 22) that production could begin in the autumn only if the script meets his approval.

"It's possible [that production could begin this autumn]," he said, adding: "We haven't seen a screenplay yet that I've been able to sign off on."

The Disney chairman added: "There's a lot of variables that affect the final outcome once it leaves the studio lot, so we are very careful."

Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg previously suggested that they were hoping to begin shooting Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in Puerto Rico and »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

23 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In 2014, it’s difficult to appreciate the awe felt by uninitiated audiences who saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in theaters in 1981. Think about the film’s opening scenes, which introduce Indiana Jones and his now-iconic fedora in the jungles of South America. He narrowly avoids getting shot in the back by his mutinous guides, proves his Zorro-esque expertise with a whip, cleverly maneuvers through the deadly booby-traps of an ancient Peruvian temple, flicks away tarantulas like they’re gnats, nabs the prized golden idol but sets off a chain-reaction of destruction that includes a giant boulder chasing him back out into the sunlight, »

Theme park ride-based movies: Will 'It's a Small World After All' follow the trend?

23 April 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Bad news: Walt Disney World ride “It’s a Small World” is reportedly getting its own movie. Good news: Uh…

“Small World” has a nice enough premise — ride a brightly colored boat through the world’s countries, learning about their cultures through cutesy animatronic puppets and song. But as for movie potential? We’re not so sure about that.

Disney has pioneered the movies-based-on-rides trend, and so far, Disney rides are the only theme park rides to ever be turned into films. And while its Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has done surprisingly well, other ventures into ride-based movies »

Disney Planning ‘It’s a Small World’ Movie from ‘National Treasure’ Director

23 April 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Walt Disney Pictures released two movies based on its theme park attractions in 2003; one of them, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, was an immense hit that gave rise to a billion-dollar franchise, while the other, The Haunted Mansion, was far less successful – critically and financially – but still grossed a tidy sum at the box office (over $180 million worldwide).

The Mouse House has since attempted multiple times to bring another of its popular theme park rides to the big screen, with It’s a Small World being the latest subject. Disney’s musical boat ride – accompanied by the famous Sherman Brothers’ tune that’s either charmingly or irritatingly ...

Career Watch: Can Depp Transcend His Rep for Onscreen Quirk?

21 April 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

For most actors, playing a cyber-age Dr. Frankenstein whose consciousness is converted into an artificial-intelligence experiment that threatens humankind would be considered a rather unusual role. But casting Johnny Depp as a mad scientist in the just-opened sci-fi thriller “Transcendence”? It barely registers a ripple on his scale of bizarre characters.  Even critics who bemoaned his mystical twist on Tonto in “The Lone Ranger” and his campy take on Barnabas Collins in “Dark Shadows” are dissing this toned-down version of Depp – to the point that "Transcendence"’s 20% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes ranks among the star’s lowest ever. Richard Corliss of Time speaks for many as he describes Depp’s performance as “subdued to the point of entropy,” while adding, “If he can’t overplay, he doesn’t play at all.” Signature line: “Savvy?” – Capt. Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” (2003) Career »

Johnny Depp Facts: 33 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the A-List Star

18 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Johnny Depp has been lighting up the silver screen for three decades.

Since breaking out on the hit show "21 Jump Street," Depp has become well known for his eccentric roles, most notably as the suave pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. While the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise made him a bankable star, Depp owes much of his career to renowned director Tim Burton for collaborations such as "Edward Scissorhands" (1990) and "Sleepy Hollow" (1999) -- just to name two.

But there's still much to know about the international star. From his early ambitions as a musician to his surprising fear, here are 33 things you probably don't know about Johnny Depp.

1. Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1963 to Betty Sue Palmer, a waitress, and John Christopher Depp, a civil engineer.

2. He and his family moved frequently during his childhood, living in more than 20 different places before settling in Miramar, »

‘Transcendence’ a bland, low-key, and ultimately silly techno-thriller

17 April 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Transcendence

Written by Jack Paglen

Directed by Wally Pfister

United Kingdom, China, and USA, 2014

It’s been more than a decade since Johnny Depp moved from being a bundle of quirky nerves in the body of a heartthrob to a full-fledged movie star, and it may be the worst thing that happened to his career. Depp’s Mvp-like turn as the louche Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was stunning to audiences worldwide; he managed to appear in a big-budget blockbuster based on a theme-park attraction without seemingly selling out, crafting an utterly daffy and instantly iconic character. And in many ways, it has been Depp’s creative undoing. He’s able to choose whatever projects he wants now, as many of his bigger films are prone to grossing a billion dollars at the box office, even the garish Alice in Wonderland. »

Jeff Wadlow heading to Eternia for Masters of the Universe

10 April 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Schmoes Know, Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has taken on directing duties on Sony’s long-gestating live-action Masters of the Universe reboot, filling the space in the director’s chair vacated by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). Wadlow has recently penned the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off X-Force, and should this He-Man rumour prove true, it would seem that Fox will need to find another director to bring Cable, Deadpool and company to the screen.

Sony has been developing Masters since 2009, and in 2010 the studio hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak to draft a script, which was entitled Greyskull. The script has subsequently been rewritten by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), while the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), Kirk DeMicco »

Watch Orlando Bloom Receive His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

3 April 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Orlando Bloom received his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday afternoon in a ceremony held in the heart of the city. This recognition comes after the actor has appeared in two of Hollywood's biggest franchise of all time, The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of The Caribbean. We have the video highlights from this momentous event, which you can watch here:

" For a kid in London, Hollywood seems like such a mythical place."

The actor stated. Orlando Bloom had only one film credit to his name when he landed the role of Archer Elf Legolas in The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. This came two years before he set sail as Will Turner in Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl. Later this year, he will reprise his role as Legolas for the final time in The Hobbit: There and Back Again. »
