Believe it or not, there is a 5th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise coming. Despite how bad the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th one was they made money so they are making a 5th one. Here is the official plot synopsis for the movie........
"Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas."
I'm doing it again. I'm drinking the kool-aid. I'm falling for this stupid movie again. There is a high probability that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be terrible. This synopsis gets me interested for a couple of things.
1.)Javier Bardem. He is an Oscar winning actor for his role in No Country for Old Men. He played the villain in one of my favorite movies of all time Skyfall. He is so talented. Hopefully he can save this movie. I'm really hoping he does. I want to like this franchise again so bad. Hopefully Bardem will be that saving grace.
2.)It sounds like a bounty hunter/revenge movie. I love bounty hunter movies. Movies where someone is always on the move because they want to survive while someone from their past is seeking revenge. It's always interesting when death is one the line.
3.)By the sound of this synopsis it sounds like this movie will have some pretty awesome visual effects. Now, visual effects don't guarantee a good movie. So if this movie sucks, it will be really enjoyably to look at.
Now there are things that worry me about this movie.
1.)Johnny Depp. He worries me. The majority of his past movies have not only been bad, they have sucked like Transcendence, The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, and especially Alice in Wonderland. They have all been absolutely terrible. It seems like he never tries anymore. By far Depp's best character is Jack Sparrow. He got an Oscar nomination for the first one. I'm still worried about this one.
Pirates 5 started production yesterday and is set to release on July 7th, 2017.
