New Pirates Movie Coming Out, World Continues to Spin
I wonder if Disney is wincing at all after this past summer’s horrible reaction to remakes, reboots and sequels. Despite all the signs from this year, they’re still forging ahead with a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. It’s a big, lumbering beast of a franchise that shows no signs of coming to a merciful end.
Dare you watch the first teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales?
That’s Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar as some kind of freaky zombie with a freaky zombie crew. Pretty sure we’ve seen dead captains and zombie crews before.
Anyway, I’m not the first person to point this out, but what the heck is Disney doing? This franchise should have ended a long time ago. And Disney keeps doubling down on the worst part. The first Pirates movie was not a huge success because of the zombie pirate crew, it was the personable characters. But Disney just keeps doubling down on crazy science fiction insanity. Does anybody even remember the last movie? Something with mermaids?
