Audiences will set sail with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) on a new adventure for the first time in six years when Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales his theaters on Memorial Day Weekend.
It’s hard to believe that this franchise based on the Disneyland attraction of the same name has become this multi-billion dollar hit for the company. When Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl hit theaters, it was expected to bomb given the recent history of pirate films flopping at the box office such as Cutthroat Island.
The Curse of the Black Pearl became a critical and commercial success, even landing Johnny Depp an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. The success of this film spawned two more Gore Verbinski-directed sequels: Dead Men’s Chest and A World’s End. A fourth film directed by Rob Marshall, titled On Stranger Tides was released in 2011 and also hit the billion dollar mark.
Captain Jack Sparrow has become a Disney icon, and although it’s easy to see how Depp gives into his Sparrow-isms in much of his recent filmography, Jack Sparrow is still an entertaining character.
For fans of the beloved pirate, Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled a brand new sixth-scale figure of Captain Jack Sparrow. This impeccably-detailed figure will be sold for $264.99. Here is Sideshow Collectibles’ description of this incredible statue:
