After 5 long years, we finally can set sail on the hype ship. For Disney has released the first trailer for the one movie we've all been waiting for, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!

With his deadly ghost crew, Salazar shows his determination to find Jack Sparrow...there should be a "Captain" in there, somewhere.

But for those who didn't follow the news, as posted year or so ago, I suppose it's now appropriate for me to say I am semi-retired...the rest I'll let the linked post serve for me. So there, I've said it in two posts instead of just one.
With all that out of the way, to the topic in question...
Once again, the New Year has come again. Unlike the last couple of years, 2015 didn't seem to be too eventful for the Pirates franchise, at least in my most humble opinion. Still, there was some POTC-related activity going on somewhere in the Mouse's House...

Gentlemen, the time has come...after who-knows-how-many rewrites, delays and hard work from Disney/Bruckheimer (and now Roenberg), etc, I am happy to say that—at long, long, long last!—Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has finished production! Filming began back in February, and it is today that director Joachim Rønning announced that it's a wrap. Here are some official posts confirming the latest news...
