'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' Review: More High Seas Hijinks From Johnny Depp

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' Review: More High Seas Hijinks From Johnny Depp
Seeing a Pirates of the Caribbean movie these days is a lot like riding the amusement park attraction that inspired the franchise: it's a generally enjoyable time and maybe, just maybe there will be a surprise along the way. Mostly, though, it's the same as the last time you rode it.

Dead Men Tell No Tales -- not to be confused with the similarly titled Dead Man's Chest (aka Pirates 2) -- picks up a thread teased at the end of At World's End (Pirates 3): Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) is attempting to free his father, Will (Orlando Bloom), from an eternity cursed to the Flying Dutchman. Legend has it that the Trident of Poseidon has the power to do just that, so off Henry goes. There's nothing Disney loves more than daddy issues.

Pirates 5 on Target for Massive $285M Worldwide Box Office Opening

Pirates 5 on Target for Massive $285M Worldwide Box Office Opening
Critics be damned, it looks like Disney has another hit on their hands with Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow and audiences around the world are as eager to see him as ever, as the latest Pirates adventure looks like it is going to clean up this weekend at the box office. While there is a wide gap in projections, it looks like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales could be taking in as much as $285 million globally this Memorial Day weekend.

According to Deadline, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 could bring in anywhere between $230-$285 million globally for the four day weekend. That is a pretty wide margin from the low end to the high end, but if the movie can do anything in the $250 million range worldwide, that would be a huge win for Disney. The last movie in the franchise,

Can Baywatch Beat Pirates 5 at the Memorial Day Box Office?

Can Baywatch Beat Pirates 5 at the Memorial Day Box Office?
Marvel's two-week summer reign came to an end this past weekend, when Alien: Covenant ($36.1 million) unseated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($34.6 million) in a close race at the box office. The R-rated sci-fi thriller's time at the top of the box office charts will be quite short-lived, though, with this Memorial Day weekend featuring two highly-anticipated movies squaring off against each other, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Paramount's Baywatch, although Baywatch will get a bit of a head start, opening on Thursday, May 25 instead of Friday, May 26. Still, this won't change the fact that Pirates 5 should have no trouble walking away with the box office crown, with a three-day tally of $81.2 million and a four-day total of $96.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released in more than 4,000 theaters, which is no surprise

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Was Based on Dropped TV Series Pitch

The year was 2003. John Knoll had been involved with Industrial Light and Magic's visual effects department as a supervisor. He had helped create many of the FX for the prequel films that were fantastic... the FX not the prequels. He has been nominated for Academy Awards and worked on such great hits as Pacific Rim, Avatar, and even Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. But who could have guessed that he would come up with the pitch that would eventually become Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

When the prequel hype was big, Lucasfilm was working on creating a live action TV series for Star Wars, and that got Jon Knoll thinking about what he would like to see. He came up with an idea for a series similar to Mission: Impossible focusing on Rebel Agents who had to steal the Death Star plans. He asked about what the

Beauty and the Beast 2 Won't Happen, a Prequel or Spin-Off Is Possible

Beauty and the Beast 2 Won't Happen, a Prequel or Spin-Off Is Possible
As expected, Disney's long-awaited live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast struck a powerful chord with moviegoers everywhere, to the tune of a record-breaking opening weekend of $174.7 million, the highest ever for the month of March, easily breaking the record set last year by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In almost every instance of a blockbuster success of this caliber, the movie's respective studios will often announce and/or confirm plans for a sequel on Monday, to capitalize on the momentum of their hit. That didn't happen yesterday though at Disney, with the studio's production president Sean Bailey confirming in a new interview that there will not be a sequel to Beauty and the Beast, although there may be prequels and/or spin-offs.

Deadline spoke with Sean Bailey, who told the site that the studio will explore various possibilities for prequels and spin-offs. Unfortunately, he wouldn't offer any specifics,

Musical Memes and Trading Coffee for Car Chases with Hans Zimmer

“Who doesn’t want to be inventive and weird?”

Hans Zimmer is one of the greatest, most prolific film composers alive with a plethora of scores so recognizable he’s taking them to Coachella. Anyone whose themes are so powerful they can be appreciated under a music festival’s haze has to be remarkable. He’s also willing to piss off his publicist by digging into goofy questions long after his schedule has told him to move on. And by God, I respect that. Zimmer sat down with me to discuss his new online MasterClass, trading coffee for car chases, and musical memes.

Hans Zimmer: I’m excited that you are Film School Rejects because I am definitely a music school reject.

Q: You’re doing the Diy thing and putting on your own school.

Hz: Something like that. I know so many people that wanted to make a movie — that needed to make a movie

Production begins on Jared Masters’ shocking Biblical thriller ‘Absolute Vow’

From the visionary mind of the man that brought us Slink and After School Massacre, comes a new kind of cinematic experience, Absolute Vow, an adaptation from Judges 11, in the Old Testament.

Biblical scholars have called it the strangest story in the Holy cannon, the unsettling tale of Jephthah, who was faced with a very difficult decision; sacrifice his only daughter, or break the vow he made to God Almighty.

The film is Frolic Pictures’ most profound, intricate and complicated production thus far. The bizarre story has been on Masters’ heart for some time, and finally his Bible epic will be made and will give new meaning to the faith-based film, that also has elements of horror, fantasy and sensationalism.

The movie is rumored to be shot on 16mm black and white film, with a cast of thousands. Hundreds of men have constructed the massive Biblical sets needed to bring

Hot Rumor: The Batman Will Start Filming In 2017, For Summer 2018 Release!

  • LRM Online
There seems to be a lot of shifting and juggling going on with the Dceu film slate as of late.

For starters, no new director has been announced for The Flash which puts a big dent in the likelihood that the film will hit its March 2018 release date. Then there's the fact that Aquaman got shifted from its projected release of July 27, 2018 to October 5, 2018. Meanwhile, fall of 2018 had been thought of as the landing spot for Ben Affleck's The Batman.

With the current way that 2018 is configured, there's a huge gap in DC's releases between March and October. DC has famously released many of its major films during the summer, with practically every modern Batman and Superman film- aside from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice- being released in June or July.

Which brings us back to reports from earlier this year, when Batman v Superman came out

Hot Rumor: WB/DC Will Be Pushing Aquaman Up After Latest The Flash Fiasco

  • LRM Online
Despite Ezra Miller's recent assurances that there was no major delay looming for The Flash, and despite the fact that it's lost its second director in under seven months, the writing on the wall isn't hard to see. Without a finalized script, and without a director announced, there's very little chance they can get this movie made in the original time they'd slotted for it- or released on the date they'd planned. 

Meanwhile, Aquaman has been chugging along on a very reliable path. James Wan has been committed to directing the film for a while; Star Jason Momoa has been game to create a big splash with his new take on Aquaman for quite some time; And a recent move by Paramount Pictures may have just telegraphed what many of us have been thinking for a while:

Aquaman may get moved forward, now that The Flash is likely to get pushed back.

'X3': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Infamous Threequel

When it was released 10 years ago (on May 26, 2006), "X-Men: The Last Stand" seemed like the end of an era -- the conclusion of the "X-Men" trilogy, the end of director Bryan Singer's involvement with the franchise, and the last time we'd see the original cast. Little did we know that it was only the beginning, that Singer, the X-Men, and even Patrick Stewart as Professor X would all be back with a vengeance.

While "X3" was a huge hit at the box office, it was divisive with fans -- it's the poster-child for why third installments of movie franchises are usually regarded as the worst entry. In honor of the infamous threequel's tenth anniversary, here are ten things you need to know about the summer blockbuster.

1. After directing the first two "X-Men" movies to critical and commercial success, Singer famously dropped out of the third movie to make "Superman Returns.

Is 'Batman v Superman' the Most Expensive Movie Ever Made?

Is 'Batman v Superman' the Most Expensive Movie Ever Made?
Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice represents the first time iconic superheroes Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) will be seen on the big screen together, when it hits theaters next March. This massive comic book adventure could end up making history in a completely different way, if a report from Latino Review is accurate. The site's sources claim that the budget has gotten so out of control it may be the most expensive movie ever made.

The report claims that Warner Bros. has spent a whopping $410 million, which, if accurate, would put it incredibly close to breaking the record of $410.6 million, spent by Disney on 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, according to financial documents obtained by Forbes. Before that movie went into production, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest had the record with $341.8 million, followed by Cleopatra, which cost $44 million to

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Photo Celebrates Talk Like a Pirate Day
You're going to have to squint really hard and play 'Where's Waldo?' to find him, but we're pretty sure Johnny Depp is dressed as Capt. Jack Sparrow somewhere in a new cast and crew photo that has just arrived from the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales set. Today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. And of course, Walt Disney Pictures wasn't going to let the holiday go by without sharing a little something from their new movie. Sure, a trailer isn't ready yet, and probably won't be until sometime in 2016. This fifth chapter in the popular franchise doesn't even open until 2017. But we do get this cool souvenir, which is made to look like it came from a photo op at Disneyland.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales producer Jerry Bruckheimer shared this photo of the cast and crew on his official Twitter.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: First 'Pirates of the Caribbean' One of Most Enjoyable Summer Blockbusters of Early 21st Century

'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century.
