Johnny Depp and more return for 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'.
Jack Sparrow's latest adventure 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge' is on the way; the fifth installment of the nautical Disney franchise that was previously named 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'. Expect some exciting new characters and welcome old ones.
Johnny Depp returns as Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'
Joining Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp and his crew (including the likes of Gibbs and Barbossa, played by Kevin McNally and Geoffrey Rush respectively) is a new character who everyone will recognise - though not from the big screen. Paul McCartney will make a cameo in an as yet unknown role, marking his feature film acting debut. Such an addition is reminiscent of Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, who portrayed Sparrow's father Captain Edward Teague in 'At World's End' and 'On Stranger Tides'.
Forget Davy Jones' Locker and the Fountain of Youth, Captain Jack Sparrow is on an all new quest as he embarks on the hunt for the fabled trident of Poseidon. It may sound like he's set his sights far too high this time, but he's never failed the crew of the Black Pearl yet - and he really could do with a windfall right about now. To make matters worse, Capitan Salazar is back from the Devil's Triangle with his ghostly crew, and the trident is his only hope of stopping them. This time he's got the help of his old friend Will Turner, who is apparently free of his binding contract with The Flying Dutchman.

Having played no part at all in 2011's On Stranger Tides, Bloom will be returning to the cast for Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017.
Great news for fans of Pirates Of The Caribbean as Disney has confirmed that Orlando Bloom will be returning to the cast for the fifth instalment. The announcement was revealed at Disney’s D23 expo on Saturday (August 15th) after the star himself had previously expressed uncertainty as to whether he would get the nod.
Bloom, of course, was missing from the fourth movie On Stranger Tides back in 2011, having played Will Turner, one of the franchise’s central characters, in the first three movies dating back to 2003. But it seems now that his role will be revived in some way for the 2017 release Dead Men Tell No Tales alongside Johnny Depp’s eternal favourite Captain Jack Sparrow.

The series was originally slated to be adapted by Warner Bros. 2012.
Fans of Stephen King can rejoice, as the famed author’s magical series The Dark Tower is finally coming to the big screen. Deadline reports that Sony will be distributing the series of movies, while a complementary TV series is also being developed by MRC.
The author has been patient with plans to bring his series to the big screen.
The series is set in a magical world and centers around Roland Deschain, the last living member of a knightly order known as the 'gunslingers'. The work has been described by the author as his magnum opus and has been called King’s answer to Tolkien’s Middle Earth novels.
While Sean Penn lends this thriller some political subtext, the fact remains that it's actually just another vacuous revenge fantasy from Taken director Pierre Morel. Clearly for Morel, the violence is the point, and any depth of meaning is irrelevant, which leaves the film superficially entertaining but a waste of the considerable talent on-screen.
Penn plays Jim, a charity worker in the wartorn 2006 Democratic Republic of Congo. His hot doctor girlfriend Annie (Jasmine Trinca) has no idea that Jim is secretly a black-ops sniper working with fellow mercenary commandos Cox, Felix and DuPont (Rylance, Bardem and Elba). Then their latest mission requires Jim to disappear. Eight years later in an all-new life, Jim discovers that someone is trying to kill him, so he travels to London to find Cox. When Jim's pursuers turn up, Cox sends him to talk to Felix, who now lives in Barcelona with Annie as his wife. With the mysterious killers still on his trail, Jim heads to Gibraltar to tie up the loose ends with DuPont, and finally discovers the truth about what's going on and who's behind it.
Yes, everything is leading to a brutal confrontation inventively set in a bull-fighting ring. But not much else here is either original or convincing. The whole African politics premise is little more than a plot device, while hopping from Congo to Britain to Spain does little more than change the background scenery. Otherwise, the script is so simplistic that it barely holds water, and each ambush, fight and chase sequence feels like something we've seen before. Especially since everything is both over-choreographed and gratuitously grisly. Still, Morel is great at creating a sense of tension that builds ominously from start to finish, adding some gritty urgency through corrupt politicians and self-serving businessmen. Unfortunately, the film continually sidelines these intriguing ideas for more mindlessly violent mayhem.

While the Gaza conflict enters a brief cease-fire, Hollywood stars are generating headlines.
Several Hollywood big names have already spoken out on Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem’s open letter on the Israel-Palestine conflict, including Jon Voight, and now, Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh.
Bardem [l] and Cruz [r] had to defend themselves against accusations of anti-semitism.
Last week, the Hollywood power couple gave their backing, along with Pablo Almodover and other luminaries of the Spanish entertainment industry to the letter, which denounced Israel’s actions in Gaza and the resulting civilian casualties as “genocide”. In the following days, Cruz and Bardem each released a statement, clarifying their intentions.
We defy anyone that tells us there isn't a top secret celebrity forging factory somewhere out there. We present Exhibit A (B, C, D, etc.)...
We’re starting to suspect that there’s only a handful of famous people, but that they each just have a few different aliases. We’ve never been able to put our finger on it until recently, but some of these celebs look far too similar to be different people. We’re considering a theory that there is a celebrity factory and they only have a few different molds to work with.
Take Penelope Cruz and Paz Vega for example. It’s hard to believe that these two aren’t at least a little bit related. We only realised recently that it’s Paz starring alongside Adam Sandler in Spanglish and not Penelope.
