Pirates of The Caribbean 3: At World’s End wasn’t very good, but at least it capped off the story of Will and Elizabeth nicely and sent them off to a happy ending. In the climax of the picture Will nearly died, but his life was saved by taking on the title of Captain of the Flying Dutchman. That makes you immortal, BUT you can only walk on land once every ten years. According to a filmed scene, though, his new marriage created a loophole. If Elizabeth waited for Will all of those ten years and remained faithful to him, he would be returned to her arms permanently.
Disney announced on Saturday (August 15) at the D23 Expo that Orlando Bloom will return in his role of Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Turner returns alongside the newly crowned Disney Legend Johnny Depp as the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow.
When the first Pirates of the Caribbean film was released in theaters it was a quick success and one of the favorite summer films of 2003. The film appealed to those of all ages as it was simply a great and entertaining action film that hit on all the points that make a good film (director, writers, characters, actors and, of course, story) and it came as no surprise to me that the sequel, Dead Man’s Chest, opened to huge numbers. What did surprise me is just how much it made in theaters (I think that surprised just about everyone), but if there are plenty of fans like my sister who saw it six times within the first two weeks of its theatrical run, it’s no surprise who the film made so much.
