Yes, the waiting is over. We finally have some new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales posters showing Johnny as Captain Jack Sparrow again. Check them out!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales first made an appearance last October with a spooky teaser that featured Javier Bardem’s grotesque villain — but no Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Well Capt. Jack is officially back, making a messy entrance at the tail end of a new trailer that just premiered during the Super Bowl. The fifth installment of the Pirates series will premiere on May 26.
“The dead have taken command of the sea. They’re searching for a Sparrow.” So says a spectral woman who explains what the ghostly Captain Salazar (Bardem) and his putrid crew are after as they maraud the high seas, searching for a powerful trinket called the Trident of Poseidon — and apparently, Depp’s dippy hero, the erstwhile captain of the Black Pearl. We catch glimpses of familiar faces like Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and a grizzled Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) before finally seeing Sparrow himself caked in grime and hoisting a bottle.
It’s all set to the tune of Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave,” a curious song choice, coming so soon after Cash’s cover of “Hurt” was used so memorably in the first trailer for the X-Men movie Logan. Does this mean Jack Sparrow will be getting serious too? Here’s hoping there’s still a pirate’s life in this pirate.
And same here, I’m sorry again for the delay. I uploaded the latest on set photos of Johnny’s current movie project “LAbyrinth” to the photo gallery. Enjoy!
Johnny Depp thanked fans for their support in a speech at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night – just days after finalizing his tempestuous divorce from wife Amber Heard.
While accepting the favorite movie icon award at the show’s close, Depp told the audience, “I came here for one reason tonight and one reason only. I came here for you, the people, who through whatever good times or bad, you know, have stood by me, trusted me. Thank you.”
He added, “You’ve very, very graciously invited me here tonight. I appreciate that very much – you have no idea how much I appreciate it.”
“I was very deeply affected by the kindness of your recognition and by the well wishes to my family and to myself, which is why it’s especially meaningful to me to be here in front of you and say thank you,” Depp said during his Wednesday speech,”and tell you that I truly feel that need to thank you because in all honesty we all know that none of us, especially me, wouldn’t be standing up here if it wasn’t for you tonight.”
He ended the show with a call-out to his late mother – who died in May 2015 – saying, “Give ’em hell, Betty Sue!”
Bardem’s character will wreck havoc on the ill fated Captain Jack after he escapes from the Devil’s Triangle. The only hope for Jack is to find the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which seems an impossible task considering Jack’s current miserable condition.
The lord of the sea, who was once sailing on the legendary Black Pearl, is now helming a small, dilapidated ship named the Dying Gull. It appears he needs major support from his uneasy allies including Carina Smyth and Henry. It is still unclear whether Captain Hector Barbossa will play a friend or a foe to the crushed Jack.
The synopsis reads: “The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea — notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitiful small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.”
Johnny was spotted filming scenes for his upcoming 2017 movie LAbyrinth in a suit on Tuesday (December 13) in Los Angeles.
The cast and crew shot on a golf course, as Johnny rode around in a golf cart.
In case you don’t know, he stars in the film as a detective who investigates the Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. murders.
I added 5 LQ images to the photo gallery, which are tagged, unfortunately. Enjoy!
A group of A-list talent came together in November to help 16-year old cancer patient Anthony Jonathan Conti fulfill his dream of writing and starring in his own film. Johnny Depp, J.K. Simmons, Laura Dern, Penelope Ann Miller, Chad Coleman, and Richard Chamberlain were joined by David Lynch, Catherine Hardwicke, Theodore Melfi, Sam Raimi, Peter Farrelly, and Sean Furst for The Black Ghiandola, a post-apocalyptic zombie story about a young man whose family has been killed and who risks his life to save a young girl he has grown to love. Filming took place November 18-20.
Anthony, diagnosed this summer with stage 4 Adrenal Cortical Cancer, stars in and co-wrote the film with Scott Kosar (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), with additional writing by Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice). The production was made possible by the Make A Film Foundation, a nonprofit established in 2007 that helps children enduring serious or life-threatening medical conditions to create short film legacies by teaming them with industry professionals who volunteer their time.
When news broke that Johnny was set to “co-star” in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, the sequel to this mont’s wizarding world expansion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, speculation immediately zeroed in on who Johnny might play. Given that Gellert Grindelwald, former friend of Albus Dumbledore, supposedly has a major role to play in this new Fantastic Beasts franchise, folks began wondering if Depp might be bringing the dark wizard to life. Well, yes, it’s true: Johnny Depp is playing Gellert Grindelwald.
The news was confirmed by director David Yates himself, who directed the final four Harry Potter films as well as Fantastic Beasts and is returning for the sequel. In speaking with The Leaky Cauldron, he revealed why they chose Johnny to fill such a pivotal role:
“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”
Great news to all the Harty Potter fans among us (which includes me!). It’s officially been confirmed that Johnny will be featured in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The second movie will be released in 2018 and directed by David Yates with Eddie Redmayne returning as Newt Scamander.
No further details have been revealed about Johnny’s role except that it’a going to be a co-starring one.
Stay tuned for more information! By they way, I’m super excited about those news since I’ve been a huge Harry Potter since the first book. Now my favorite actor is going to take part in my favorite book saga.
Bit by bit, little hints and rumors are revealed regarding Johnny’s upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie, which will be released in 2017. Since he’s been missing in the first teaser trailer, fans are being concerned that he might not play a huge role in the movie at all. However, it appears that the producers intentionally took Capt. Jack Sparrow out of the trailer to catch the attention of the viewers.
The fans of Johnny Depp also known as Jack Sparrow can stop holding their breath as reports say that the endearingly naughty pirate will be present in Pirates Of The Caribbean 5. In fact, Capt. Jack Sparrow will reportedly have a new apple to his eye – his weakness, a woman.
Not much has been revealed about that though. Only rumors and hints have been published! Stay tuned for more. But more is certain about the aspect of love in the upcoming fifth Pirates movie.
Orlando Bloom’s character, Will Turner, will not be seen with the love of his life in the film. Elizabeth Swann, played by Keira Knightley, will not be returning in Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, which sparked speculations that Will Turner will have a new lady love.
The exit of Elizabeth Swann will be compensated by a new character, Carina Smyth. Kaya Scodelario will bring Carina Smyth to life, who is said to be Capt. Jack Sparrow’s lady love. However, Carina Smyth is – ironically – the daughter of Capt. Barbossa. Chaos ensues as Capt. Barbossa learns that his enemy is in love with his daughter.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will set sail on May 26, 2017 (US).
