While the likeness of Captain Jack Sparrow was already integrated into Disneyland’s most famous boat ride, Johnny Depp just took it to a new level. The actor surprised Pirates of the Caribbean fans by appearing in-person as the legendary pirate.
Wednesday night, Depp appeared throughout California’s Disneyland ride, greeting fans and warning them about the voyage they are about to take.

This is a very clever way of promoting Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which comes out around this time next month – going to the very place where the movie’s fandom and other potential viewers are likely to gather is an easy way to drum up support for the new movie and isn’t hugely expensive to pull off. Obviously, Johnny Depp can’t do this every night leading up to the movie’s release, but it does show that the actor is really committed to the fans.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail on May 26, 2017. The film stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brendon Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Kevin McNally, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom. Plans for potential sequels are still in place.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up
Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.
I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.
If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
