Despite it being almost 15 years since the first film came out, and despite the star power that continues to sign on year after year, a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean just seems a little overboard to me.
Alas, on May 26 fans of Captain Jack Sparrow will be treated again as Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theatres.
It’s been 6 years since the last installment, so maybe the minds behind this had more time to make sure we got a good story line, not just gratuitous shots of Penelope Cruz.
The one good thing I will say about the latest Pirates movie, it’s going to have at least one great cameo.
I wasn’t aware of this, but Keith Richards has made appearances in two Pirates movies, and now another rocker is set to don black eyeshadow and a braided beard.
Paul McCartney posted a photo of himself in full pirate costume on Instagram a few days ago, he didn’t say much more than #piratelife. But there has been speculation his role is a jail guard.
So, how do you feel about pirate McCartney? Or the new movie in general? At least Javier Bardem brings the scary factor up a notch.
