Pirates of the Caribbean 5 now has an official title

Aug. 22, 2013by: Alex Maidy

We all knew that PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 was going to have a long-winded title and boy did the filmmakers not disappoint! This is Infamous got the scoop right from KON-TIKI directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning that the next Captain Jack Sparrow adventure would carry the name PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

The subtitle comes from the Disneyland ride itself and evokes the supernatural elements that are standard in the films. The Jerry Bruckheimer produced blockbuster may see the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and bring the series back to the roots of THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL.

Of all the PIRATES movies, the first is the only one I actually enjoyed with the rest feeling like a major cash grab. The most recent chapter, ON STRANGER TIDES, felt like a script forced to fit the PIRATES mold. I enjoy Johnny Depp's performance as much as anyone, but without a well-rounded screenplay and direction, they end up feeling like cookie cutter studio tent-poles.

Here's hoping that the guys behind KON-TIKI can bring some of that talent to this bloated franchise. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES opens July 10, 2015.

I'm diggin this news. I really enjoyed the trilogy. On Stranger Tides was average - Marshall was not a good choice. They are entertaining films where it's fun to get lost for 2.5 hours.

Boy this news sure got buried by Batman

I like the Pirates movies, I would never say they're particularly great movies, but I've never not had fun with them. I'm down for a fifth movie of Johnny Depp playing a cartoon rabbit.

How about Pirates of the Caribbean 5-"The end of Johnny Depp's career". Or "Lone Ranger on Water"

Good lord, can he not act without some weird ass costume on anymore? Why the hell do we need this film.
1 was good, 2 was ok, nobody saw the others. Let the franchise die for Christ sake!

As much as I didn't enjoy the last few films of the series I have to say your comment is rather dim with the fact the last film grossed over a billion at the box office.

It's like watching your grandparents having sex. It's nice that they are still doing it, but we really don't want to see it.

Pirates of the Caribbean was a good trilogy (parts 2 and 3 are better if you watch all 3 films back-to-back). Part 4 was just weak all around and a perfect example of why some movies series should have stopped at 3 films (Indiana Jones, Bourne, Die Hard, etc).

This franchise just need to end already. They've had three chances to recapture the magic from Black Pearl and they haven't even come close.

I know it's not the popular opinion, but I enjoyed the fourth film. Sure, it did sometimes feel like a sequel for the sake of it, but I honestly felt very entertained. With the Will/Elizabeth story out of the way, we could go on a proper Jack-centric adventure, with the chalices being a great macguffin and the rivalry between hip and Barbossa getting more play. I thought a good number of the action sequences were very entertaining: the piranha-esque mermaids, the teetering ship, the carriage

I can see where the Last Crusade comparisons come from, especially with the final scene at the fountain of youth. That's why I enjoyed the fourth movie so much, it did feel like a fun adventure and is my favourite of the series besides the first.

Please stop...

I liked the first one and didn't hate the 2nd and 3rd as much as most did. Overall, they were entertaining, fun and had a great Hans Zimmer score. I stopped there because Depp's act got tired and forced, while nothing new was offered. While other franchises evolve (see fast and furious), this one just recycles. Let's hope audiences aren't fooled this time and avoid it...

I have some faith. Why? Because Kon-Tiki was amazing. If some of you are really doubting this I suggest watching Kon-Tiki hopefully it will get you a little excited.

Curse of the Black Pearl was definitely the best because it use minimal over the wall special effects and sequences and had just the right dose of Captain Jack Sparrow. Dead Man's Chest was enjoyable because Davy Jones was quite the badass, but we got too much love story between Jack, Will, and Elizabeth. At World's End was filled with too many characters and a campy ending. On Stranger Tides was terrible (I never thought I'd miss Will and Elizabeth, but this movie made me). If Dead Men Tell

If Dead Men Tell No Tales is a return to the style of the first movie than I'll be happy to see it.

I watched the third and fourth movies back to back a few weeks ago. Definitely more enjoyable when watched all at once and a bit drunk (thank you Sam Adams.) Second and third flicks are a chaotic mess (though the ending to 3 is better than it gets credit for), but that fourth movie...never thought I'd say I miss Gore Verbinski and Orlando Bloom but yeah...major step down in terms of scale, action, characters, story. Everything up to and including the mermaid scene is good, but it goes

But nice job with the title. You already used Dead Man in a title before dummies.

2 problems with PotC3

1. Attack of the 50 ft woman,
2. Mini-Jacks

aside from those 2 elements, i was overwhelmingly satisfied by the whole pirates trilogy. The fourth film, however, was a waste of 2 hours i will never get back. it had no character developments, lack of intelligible plot, and a barrage of noisy action scene that, when not mind numbingly annoying, seemed so slapdashed. And what the hell was with Penelope Cruz? All she was was female Jack Sparrow, because 1 in the movie wasn't enough.

I hate Gary Marshall. "Chicago" is the only thing of his i liked. And while these Kon-Tiki guys are an odd choice, at least they have respect for cinema. Disney has been trying to find a franchise to fill the gap Pirates wants to leave. So far they've tried "Prince of Persia", "Sorcerer's Apprentice", "John Carter", and "The Lone Ranger" but all those movies have been commercial flops. So Disney keeps cranking out a Pirates movie in hopes that it will make up for the other failures. Disney really needs a new fantasy franchise. They have their live action fairytales, which are doing nicely (Alice in Wonderland, Oz the Great and Powerful, Maleficent) but they really want another action tentpole hit like the Pirate movies. I suggest they make a movie out of Jungle Cruise Ride, make it a throwback to those old adventure movies. And dont cast Johnny Depp. I love the guy as much as the next fan, but Disney has to at least look like they are trying something new.

Is this movie really necessary? I thought, with the first 3, that all the major chars' story was wrapped up. I mean, it's really obvious they are cooking up stuff just for the sake of a big box office.

1st Pirates movie was definitely the best. I enjoyed Dead Man's Chest for the most part, but the 3rd movie was just a clusterf**k (albeit with a satisfying ending, I thought) and the 4th movie was just boring. Penelope Cruz was pretty much the only reason I watched that. Bringing back Will Turner for the 5th might not be such a bad idea, but this franchise has really run its course. How many movies are they going to make? And isn't Johnny Depp rumored to retire soon anyway?
