‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Is a Reminder That Bad Buzz Doesn’t Always Mean It’s a Bad Movie

The moviegoing landscape is absolutely awash in “buzz.” Good buzz, bad buzz, Oscar buzz, career-ending buzz. It’s a beehive out there, and while the advent of the internet and social media has made the “Did you hear this?” conversation absolutely never-ending, the industry has pretty much never not been flooded with early word-of-mouth. Indeed, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl opened in theaters 15 years ago today, and the conversation surrounding Disney’s theme park adaptation was anything but hopeful. But the first Pirates of the Caribbean film also stands as …

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Turns 15: Revisit the Red Carpet Premiere at Disneyland

It's no secret that Pirates of the Caribbean is a global phenomenon. But, when the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures movie had its world premiere at Disneyland on June 28, 2003, few could have predicted it would be the success it is today. Pirates is the ninth highest grossing film franchise in history, earning $4,524,358,182 at the global box office after last year's fifth film: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl premiered in theaters nationwide 11 days later, on July 9, 2003. The original film's world premiere shut down the theme park. A red carpet was rolled out on Main Street so Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom could sign autographs and take...

Fox Shows Their Commitment To Gambit During CineEurope Presentation

When Fox didn’t include Gambit on their list of future X-Men installments the other month at CinemaCon, many thought that perhaps Channing Tatum’s long-gestating passion project was dead and gone. You can’t blame them, either, given how many setbacks it’s suffered over the years.

If you’ll recall, during the early days of production, Gambit went through at least three heavyweight helmers: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) and Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl). Not to mention that the titular role bounced back and forth between several actors – Keanu Reeves, Josh Holloway and Taylor Kitsch were all linked with the part – before Tatum took up the mantle and made it his goal to get the project off the ground.

That said, it seems as if Fox still intends on moving forward with it.

Simon Kinberg Hopes To Begin Production On Gambit This Summer

When Fox didn’t include Gambit on their future X-Men installments list at CinemaCon last month, fueling rumors that Channing Tatum’s long-gestating passion project was dead, producer Simon Kinberg came to the rescue and assured fans that the Ragin’ Cajun’s solo movie was still alive and kicking.

Today, at the premiere of Deadpool 2, Kinberg once again displayed his commitment to a solo Gambit movie. While speaking to Variety, the producer disclosed that he and Tatum have “met with a bunch of directors” over the past couple of weeks and even hope to begin shooting Gambit by summer’s end.

“We have a script that we love — that Channing loves. We’ve met with a bunch of directors in the last couple of weeks, and we’re hoping to actually pick one in the next couple of weeks and shoot the movie maybe the end of this summer.

Zoe Saldana Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Zoe Saldana Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Shortly after the release of Avengers: Infinity War, actress Zoe Saldana has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actress is best known for playing the assassin Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and Avengers: Infinity War, in addition to having lead and supporting roles in other science fiction movies like the Star Trek franchise and Avatar.

Saldana began her acting career in 1999 when she appeared in two episodes of the popular TV series Law & Order. Saldana's break-out role came in 2003, when she appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl as the female pirate Anamaria. After that, she went on to land a number of other significant roles, including Uhura in the rebooted Star Trek franchise and Neytiri in Avatar. Saldana is set to return as Neytiri in the next four slated Avatar movies.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Producer Confirms Gambit’s Still Moving Forward

When Fox didn’t include Gambit on their future X-Men installments list at CinemaCon last month, it fueled rumors that Channing Tatum’s long-gestating passion project was dead and gone. According to producer Simon Kinberg, however, the Ragin’ Cajun’s solo movie is still alive and kicking.

By now, Gambit supporters know better than to be presumptive whenever a bit of news regarding their beloved bō staff wielding mutant surfaces, having seen the role bounce back and forth between several actors, including Keanu Reeves, Josh Holloway and Taylor Kitsch before dreamboat Channing Tatum took up the mantle.

Rumored to begin production on June 19th in Remy LeBeau’s hometown of New Orleans, the project, which has been in pre-production limbo since 2014, has yet to secure a director, despite having gone through at least three heavyweight helmers: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity

Quote of the Day: Zoe Saldana Doesn’t Want to Be a Muse

Saldana in “I Kill Giants”

Zoe Saldana’s first blockbuster grossed over $654 million worldwide, but filming 2003’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was far from a Hollywood dream come true for the “Star Trek” actress.

“I left that experience feeling a little bitter,” she told Cosmopolitan. Referring to the “super elitist” set, she described “dealing with a lot of people who were great and a lot of people who were not so great,” and feeling that her time and contributions weren’t valued. “If I’m like, ‘I could have been with my family, in school learning, or travelling, but instead I’m here being treated like an extra but in a very despicable way by people who don’t even speak properly…,’ my time is being wasted,” she revealed.

Saldana was “dangerously close to quitting the industry” before her next gig, Steven Spielberg’s “The Terminal,

A Wrinkle In Business: Disney’s Blind Spot When It Comes to Science Fiction

Henry Bevan on Disney’s sci-fi efforts…

Those who have read James Stewart’s The Disney War will know that the company creates its most ambitious work when it shies away from filmmaking formulas. The Neo-Disney period (or the post-renaissance or second dark age or whatever) that followed the fabled Disney Renaissance, and contained animated wonders like Lilo and Stitch and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, was marked out by expensive and ambitious flops. Many believe this fruitless period led to the dismissal of Michael Eisner as CEO, the man who along with Jeffrey Katzenberg revitalised company in the late ‘80s and the ‘90s by going back to formula. The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King were modernised versions of Walt Disney’s magic that captivated audiences in the company’s Golden Age.

When Bob Iger replaced Eisner, he immediately stopped the experimentation that occurred during early-

Hans Zimmer Thought Pirates of the Caribbean Was a Bad Idea

Hans Zimmer wasn’t on board with scoring Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl until he saw the first batch of footage. Zimmer is an iconic film composer who’s scored major productions such as The Lion King and Gladiator. And he followed up his success with those movies by composing the theme song and soundtrack for Gore Verbinski’s Pirates of the Caribbean film in 2003, which helped launch Disney’s most commercially successful live-action franchise outside Marvel and Star Wars.

James Franco and ‘The Disaster Artist’ Join Awards Season Meltdown

James Franco and ‘The Disaster Artist’ Join Awards Season Meltdown
This year’s awards season has been rocked, from the start, by a wide array of sexual misconduct allegations. Now, newly published accounts about Golden Globe winner James Franco threaten to upend his awards run.

Five women came forward to the Los Angeles Times in a report published Thursday, accusing Franco of sexual misconduct, much of it during his tenure as an acting professor at Studio 4, which he launched in association with Playhouse West in 2014.

Franco has already won a Gotham Award and a Golden Globe for his performance in “The Disaster Artist,” which he directed. He has also received Screen Actors Guild and Film Independent Spirit Award nominations for his work, in addition to winning prizes from the Detroit, San Diego, Dublin and Houston film critics organizations. When the misconduct allegations landed the day before Academy voting closed, he was also considered an Oscar contender.

While Academy voting ends Friday, Jan. 12, most

Johnny Depp Leaves Behind Pirate Ship Chandelier After Selling L.A. Condo

Johnny Depp Leaves Behind Pirate Ship Chandelier After Selling L.A. Condo
Cash-strapped Johnny Depp managed to unload all five of his apartments in downtown L.A.'s Eastern Columbia building, an art deco jewel where he and ex-wife Amber Heard once nested. But the Pirates of the Caribbean star did leave something behind in a corner penthouse: a pirate ship-shaped chandelier hanging over the entranceway.

Currently on the market as a rental for $7,500 per month, the 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom condo (the second one to sell out of the five) features a shimmering pirate ship-shaped chandelier hanging from the ceiling at the entrance, a nod to his blockbuster franchise. It is understood to have been...

Channing Tatum’s ‘Gambit’ Is Back on the Books with a New 2019 Release Date

Channing Tatum’s ‘Gambit’ Is Back on the Books with a New 2019 Release Date
Hot on the heels of the news that A Cure for Wellness and Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is taking the helm of 20th Century Fox's long-developed Gambit movie, the X-Men spinoff officially has a new release date. In a fitting move for one of Marvel's more romantic, smooth-talking mutants -- who'll be played by bonafide heartthrob Channing Tatum, no less -- Gambit is now set to arrive in theaters on Feb. 14, 2019.

July 2017 Box Office Marks Third Straight Month in Decline

July 2017 Box Office Marks Third Straight Month in Decline
After July 2015 and 2016 saw increases from one year to the next, July 2017 took a step back, down 12.2% compared to 2016 with calendar grosses reaching $1.2 billion from 221 films compared to $1.37 billion last July. Leading the way was Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which topped all releases bringing in $280 million in July, earning Sony the #1 spot for the month with six films grossing nearly $390 million. Overall, this marks the third month in a row to show a decline compared to 2016 with the summer movie season struggling and showing no sign of improvement in the month of August with the season currently pacing 11% behind 2016. Overall, August is likely to become the sixth month out of the first eight in 2017 to show a decline from one year to the next with 2017 currently -2% behind 2016. Digging deeper into July, we'll start at the top with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which delivered $280 million since its July 7 release. The film is now approaching $300 million domestically,
