10 (count them!) international posters for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales have arrived online (via IMP Awards) which you can check out in our gallery below!

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. 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 Salazar (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 (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully 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 ever faced.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, Stephen Graham as Scrum, and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.

Directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will debut in theaters on May 26, 2017.

Disney shows off Star Wars Land, and just shut up and take our money

TwitterFacebook

ORLANDO — The Disney Parks mega-project known as Star Wars Land is well underway both here and in Anaheim, California. And the Mouse House is ready to let us in on a few of its secrets.

In a panel at Star Wars Celebration on Saturday, Disney Imagineers and Lucasfilm luminaries revealed tantalizing new details on a theme park that sounds more elaborate and unusual than any yet built on Earth.

In fact, we should really stop calling Star Wars Land a theme park — it’s more of an immersive role-playing experience set on a specific frontier planet in that galaxy far, far away.  Read more…

How Gareth Edwards Beat the System to Land ‘Godzilla’ and ‘Rogue One’

They thought a VFX designer could never be a director, but Gareth Edwards proved everybody wrong.

As a teenager, Gareth Edwards had a very specific plan on how he’d make it big. It was pretty simple. He’d just do what his idol, Steven Spielberg, did. He recapped this list in the beginning of his SXSW keynote earlier this week: «I made cheap films with my father’s camera, check. I went to university, check. I made a professional short film, check.» The overwhelming difference in the two directors’ paths really came in the final step. «I sent it to Hollywood producers and got given a very polite rejection letter.»

The road to Rogue One did not start off easy for Edwards. «I was twenty-one years old, just finished film school and felt like I sort of had just wasted my life,» he remembered. «But one of the things that happens at film school, is of course, that you meet other film students. One of the guys that I was living with studied this brand new thing called ‘computer animation.’ It was very clear back then, Jurassic Park had just come out in cinemas, that this was going to be the future of filmmaking.»

First ‘Avatar’ Land Ride Footage Arrives Online

avatar ride footage

For the past three years, we’ve slowly watched Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar transform from a giant dirt pile into a jaw-dropping recreation of the alien jungle seen in James Cameron’s Avatar. Now, we’re on the homestretch, flying toward the theme park land’s May 27, 2017 opening, and first footage from the interior of one the area’s two main attractions has arrived online.

The footage comes from the Twitter account of Visit Pandora, a promotional campaign assembled by Alpha Centauri Expeditions. This is the travel agency of choice if you want to book a trip to the dangerous and beautiful world of the Na’vi. On other words, it’s part of the marketing for Pandora: The World of Avatar and like the Visit Pandora website, the Twitter account is committed to staying “in-character.”

So while the text says “here’s a cute joke pretending that Pandora is real,” the attached video says “hey, here’s the first actual footage from the Na’vi River Journey attraction.”

The video is conspicuously lacking sound, which may be by design. The official description of the ride teases the “Na’vi Shaman of Songs” who “fills the forest with beautiful music,” which suggests that the Na’vi River Journey is very much a next-gen version of It’s a Small World and Pirates of the Caribbean – a slow boat ride past enchanting visuals set to catchy music. Here’s that description:

Climb aboard a reed boat and soon you’ll see that on the sacred Kaspavan River, every moment tells a story, and every bend sings a song. This expedition into the rainforest deep within the Valley of Mo’ara will take you right into the middle of Pandora and Na’vi culture. Traveling into the darkest part of the forest, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a canopy of exotic glowing plants and amazing animals on the move. Listen closely and you’ll hear the Na’vi Shaman of Songs as she fills the forest with beautiful music about the sacred bond between nature and ourselves. Beyond any family adventure you’ve had before—that’s the Na’vi River Journey.

Of course, the technology on display looks first-rate. In the slow pan across the scenery, you can see at least a few minor animatronic creatures living amongst the bioluminescent flora, but those larger creatures seen near the end appear to be (very convincing!) projections. Since we already know there will be at least one full-sized Na’vi animatronic (the Shaman of Songs herself), it looks like the Na’vi River Journey will feature a combination of practical robots and projections.

Pandora: The World of Avatar will open with one other major ride: the banshee flying simulator Flight of Passage. The exterior of the land, which features a recreation of those floating mountains from the film, will offer different experiences depending on whether you visit during the day or at night. We’ll know more in just a few months when the land opens at the Animal Kingdom park in Florida’s Walt Disney World.
