Hard to believe there was a time before Johnny Depp was Captain Jack Sparrow. Depp was a superstar for nearly two decades and then took the role playing the swaggering pirate in a blockbuster based on a Disney theme park attraction. That role earned Depp his first of three Oscar nominations and changed his career path. Here we are 14 years later, and Depp is still chugging along on the high seas in his fifth Pirates film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

This time, Jack is searching for the trident of Poseidon, while an old enemy, Captain Salazar (Oscar winner Javier Bardem) hunts him down. While these films have had their ups and downs over the years, no one can deny Depp’s ability to entertain, and part 5 is maybe the best Pirates film since the original. It is out now on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack and loaded with special features.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 129 Minutes
Release Date: May 26, 2017

While it may be based on a theme park ride, there’s no denying that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is the very definition of popcorn summer movie fun. Pure escapism. Though the last entry, On Stranger Tides, tried to do something different to reinvigorate the series, the film was a minor misstep. But now comes the next adventure, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

With a pair of new directors in Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki), and a new screenwriter in Jeff Nathanson, the franchise sails back to its roots and what makes these films so wonderful. Big on excitement, plenty of great characters, and lots of fun. The only problem is that there isn’t enough rum to go around. Check out the full review below.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales looks to be a return to form for the franchise. In the fifth installment of the successful franchise, Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is going on a high-seas adventure once more and finds himself as a target of a very bitter ghost sea captain (Javier Bardem). But he is not alone. Along for the ride is Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites), a young sailor of the Royal Navy. That’s right, Henry Turner, as in the son of William Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley).

But if you are looking for more insight on the film and the direction which Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning are taking the film, then check out the full story below.

Never trust Jack (Johnny Depp) to change his ways. The cunning, oftentimes drunk, pirate with a silver tongue has gotten into trouble more times than anyone can count.

Disney has released a new trailer for the film, which teases more exciting pirate action than any of the previous marketing material we have seen. In it, we learn why Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) is a pirate-like phantom that is searching for Sparrow. We also get a better look at some of the new characters that will be seen and some of the old ones that will be returning. Check out the latest trailer and poster here below.
