It's been three years since ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, convincing even the most die hard fans of Disney's lucrative franchise that Captain Jack Sparrow needed to take a break. Maybe forever. And yet, these past years have been filled with rumors and casting and almost-casting for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ Like it or not, this film is coming and now it has the young up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites in its drunken, slurred, overlong clutches.

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' is still a thing that is happening despite the disappointing domestic box office of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' (thanks, Rest Of The World) and after years of behind the scenes turmoil, it looks like Disney has finally decided on a release date.

Say what you want about the franchise as a whole, but the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies really do have a knack for casting. Incredible actors (and serviceable movie stars) have filled virtually every role in the series' large ensemble, so it's no surprise that the upcoming fifth film is looking to cast a beloved thespian. Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is reportedly in negotiations to join 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' as the latest villain to cross swords with Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow.

It's strange to think that a decade ago Captain Jack Sparrow wasn't really a "thing." But after four 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies and one on the way, an update to the original theme-park ride and plenty of merchandising, Sparrow has become a household name. So drink up, me hearties, as we check him out in today's Cosplay of the Day.

Originally popularized by Alfred Hitchcock, the term "MacGuffin" refers to an object, person or location that drives the plot of story, with characters generally struggling to obtain said object, person or location before the opposition. Over the decades, the word has mutated and its exact meaning is often the subject of debate, but it's still, at the core, the same thing. The MacGuffin is that special something at the center of a movie that makes everything happen.
Although many movies have a MacGuffin of some kind (with some being more obvious than others), we're not here to talk about the best or the most well-used. Today, we're going to talk about the stupidest MacGuffins. When we say stupid, we mean that in both a harsh and loving way. Some of the MacGuffins on this list are so dumb that they're simply amazing. Others are so idiotic that they make us shake our heads. In any case, there's no arguing that they're all pretty unforgettable.

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' is going to happen whether we like it or not. Sure, 2011's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' might have been a heaping pile of junk, but it was a heaping pile of junk that made over $1 billion worldwide. What can we say? People just love Johnny Depp. But with director Rob Marshall not returning and original franchise helmsman Gore Verbinski long gone, who will step behind the camera? A few potential names have emerged.

Even though the fourth film in the franchise, 'Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,' was the lowest grossing of the franchise domestically, that film - boosted by 3D - managed to make over a billion dollars worldwide. So that a writer has been hired to write 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' should be no surprise.
