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.
Here's an exchange between Mark Kermode (bold) and Simon Mayo (italics) that took place on Friday 21st August 2015, as part of Kermode & Mayo's Film Review programme. For the purpose of context, this conversation was initially sparked by the film Sinister 2. A film that, despite the words that follow, Mr Kermode wasn't keen on.
"I like anything that involves Super 8 movies, and the idea of cameras, and the lacing up of projectors. There's something very... almost erotic about lacing up a projector."
"No there's not."
"No there isn't."
"I'm sorry, there's..."
"What is erotic about lacing up a camera?"
"I can't explain it..."
"There's a frisson. The way the celluloid goes through the sprockets."
"Is it to do with sprockets and holes? Is that what you're talking about?"

'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. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »
