Found this to be interesting :
"In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, series producer Jerry Bruckheimer indicated that plans for Pirates 6 could still go forward if Dead Men Tell No Tales does well enough in its home release:
'Well, I hope we can continue to make it, but you know we’ve been having so much fun just promoting this one right now that we’ll just have to wait and see. Hopefully it’s very successful on DVD as the other ones have been. Then hopefully we’ll sit down and see where we go.'
Bruckheimer also addressed charges that Dead Men Tell No Tales was a box office failure, arguing that the film would have grossed $1 billion worldwide if today’s currency exchange rates were the same as in 2011 when On Stranger Tides cracked the $1 bil…Read more >
The tracklist from DMTNT's OST was revealed (for those who, like me, are even more escited for the score than for the actual film) :
1. Dead Men Tell No Tales (1:51) 2. Salazar (4:27) 3. No Woman Has Ever Handled My Herschel (3:59) 4. You Speak of the Trident (1:58) 5. The Devil’s Triangle (2:45) 6. Shansa (3:12) 7. Kill the Filthy Pirate, I’ll Wait (4:50) 8. The Dying Gull (1:01) 9. El Matador Del Mar (8:05) 10. Kill the Sparrow (6:16) 11. She Needs the Sea (2:32) 12. The Brightest Star in the North (6:00) 13. I’ve Come With the Butcher’s Bill (6:41) 14. The Power of the Sea (4:07) 15. Treasure (5:43) 16. My Name Is Barbossa (5:34) 17. Beyond My Beloved Horizon (2:41)
That seems like a way better release than the one for On Stranger Tides (tha…Read more >
Ahoy mateys !
According to Film Music Reporter , Geoff Zanelli would come back to score Pirates 5. This is, as a huge soundtrack fan, an excellent new. You may know him as an "additionnal cues" composer who worked on every POTC film, and you may think it's not that big of a new. But the truth is: he was a lot more than that.
He composed some of the most iconic cues from the trilogy, including Barbossa is Hungry (originally called Broadside), Sword Crossed (originally called Moonlight Serenade), Lift Off (the parachute scene in AWE), Tia Dalma/Calyspo's theme (included in many tracks from DMC and AWE) and... Guess what ? Believe it or not, He's a Pirate. Of course he didn't invent the main theme, but he's the one who took Hans Zimmer's and Klaus Ba…Read more >
Ahoy maties !
With Jerrry Bruckheimer's comments, some of us were expecting Pirates 5, or DMTNT, to be released around 2016. Sadly (or not, depending on how you see it), Disney just announced July 7, 2017, to be its new official release date.
We can assume Bob Iger finally saw something he thought was worthy to get greenlit, which is good news.
Since the first draft was written in, I think, 2011, that gives them plenty of time to finalize it and make it the best story they can tell.
Of course, it could still be delayed, but if it happens, I doubt it'll be more than a couple of months. With Johnny Depp getting older, if they're not able to do it for 2017, I'm going to start to doubt the movie will ever happen...
So, what are your thoughts on t…Read more >
Yes, Pirates fans, you didn't misread...
Disney decided to change Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales release date from July 10, 2015 to (potentially) somewhere around summer 2016. Yeah, for those who were highly looking forward to it, it's disappointing, but at the same time, this can only make the movie better. Of course, it's also giving more chances for DMTNT to be a box office success because it won't have the competition it would have had in 2015 (which is maybe the biggest blockbuster year ever).
Here's what Disney's production president Sean Bailey had to say about it :
“Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow’s next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place,” said Dis…Read more >
