Still can't say I've ever seen a Pirates of the Caribbean film but I'm going to have to marathon them before this comes out because this looks fantastic ohmy.gif The only thing turning me off is Johnny Depp but in such an iconic role, I'm sure he'll be fine and not over do it.

You're in for a surprise if you think Jack Sparrow isn't over the top! tongue.gif However, its what the character is about and its his defining role really so it does suit it! How have you never seen any of the films though ohmy.gif

It'll be so interesting to see how this does financially. The others have obviously been HUGE successes which I'm sure Disney were thankful for considering they're the most expensive films in history! That means I'm sure this one is just the same in terms of expense BUT I'm really not sure it will do as well.

There's so many factors against it, the length of time that has taken to come out and people being tired of the Jack Sparrow character as well as the franchise. There's also the backlash against Johnny Depp as well as a now overcrowded blockbuster market. Previously, it was one of the standout blockbuster films of the year but now there's so much competition (mainly even from Disney itself!!) that a few big films are going to falter and underperform each year. We've already seen a few sequels to massive films flop e.g. Alice Through the Looking Glass and Ice Age 5 last year.

My personal prediction is that it be more middle of the road and do $500-600m.

It looks so good! Can't wait. For some reason it's being released as 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge' in the UK and a few other countries.

I don't mind Johnny Depp sometimes if he's actually putting thought into the acting, it was him as The Mad Hatter especially that put me off as he couldn't say a line without a random pitch change or eyebrow furrow all in an effort to be quirky. I just wanted to scream 'STOOOOPPP IT' through the screen at him laugh.gif

I also have a little feeling this is going to be just as big as the last couple (maybe a slight decline), it seems to be getting the loads of buzz in comparison to other recent trailers and I think they've knocked it out the park with the marketing so far. I think there may a bit of Johnny Depp fatigue but I think the return of Bloom and addition of Bardem may counteract that maybe ohmy.gif

The last one with Penelope Cruz was awful, I've watched them all so far, I just hope this is the last in the POTC franchise, they seem to be outdated now. Paul McCartney makes a cameo appearance in this *.*

Disney really seem to like their CGI younger-versions of famous people at the moment (Michael Douglas, Robert Downey Jr, Carrie Fisher and now this laugh.gif). This looks really great though, how badass does Javier Bardem look as the villain *-*

The teaser before Guardians has me so hyped for this now. Zombie sharks, pirates running on water, Javier Bardem's floating hair... ALL such cool visuals *-*
