Over the years Disney has made their Pirates of the Caribbean villains more and more ridiculous. The films began with Geoffrey Rush’s Captain Barbossa (no doubt the best bad guy of the series), then became super CGI heavy with Billy Nighy’s tentacled Davy Jones, and seemingly went back to basics with Ian McShane’s Blackbeard, but he used voodoo, so not the most traditional of pirates. (I still have no memory of who the villain was in At World’s End, but that movie was a ridiculous mess overall.) And now for the fifth installment in the Pirates franchise nobody asked for, Disney is going back to a CG villain.

There’s a famous part of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland where an ominous voice says “Dead men tell no tales!” So I guess this is an adaptation of that line? These Pirates of the Caribbean movies are getting really granular.

Universal’s plans to reboot their classic monsters into a shared franchise universe are certainly ambitious, to say the least. In addition to casting Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in The Mummy, the studio has Johnny Depp lined up to play The Invisible Man, and there have been talks of getting Dwayne Johnson for The Wolf Man and Angelina Jolie for Bride of Frankenstein. You can add another great actor to that list, as Javier Bardem is reportedly in talks to play Frankenstein’s monster in Universal’s reboot of Frankenstein.

If you’re a Jennifer Lawrence fan, lately you pretty much had to settle for one of three types of movies: Hunger Games, X-Men or David O. Russell films. That’s all well and good (and has led to two Oscar wins), but with the Hunger Games franchise over and X-Men winding down, we’re also excited to start seeing Lawrence spread her wings. To wit: the actress is set to star alongside Javier Bardem in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming thriller.

After years of false starts and delays, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales finally began filming in Australia yesterday. And that’s not a moment too soon for the franchise’s star, Johnny Depp, who hasn’t headlined a hit since 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. So, this brings up two important questions. First, will a fifth Captain Jack Sparrow adventure resuscitate Depp in a post-Mortdecai world? Secondly, can new directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning inject new life into a series that ran out of steam two movies ago?

Shocker! Javier Bardem is up for another villain role! After recently portraying Bond baddie Silva in 'Skyfall,' another major franchise wants him play its bad guy -- 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5.' He must have the face for it or something.

Everyone is going to hate 'The Counselor.'
Ridley Scott's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's original screenplay starring Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, et. al. is one frustrating movie. At its very best – if you buckle down and really work to piece together the nearly inscrutable plot – you aren't going to come away with much. “Crime doesn't pay,” is the gist of it.

It's been over twenty years since Brad Pitt last worked with Ridley Scott, which is surprising as it was Pitt's work in 1991's 'Thelma and Louise' that launched him into superstardom. The duo have reunited for 'The Counselor,' and in anticipation of a new trailer hitting tomorrow, three clips from the movie have been released.
