    The teaser is now available. Directed by Gore Verbinski, who just made the wonderful Ring remake. Starring; Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom and Jonathan Pryce. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, so you know it will at least be slick.
    The teaser doesn't show any actual footage, but I like the way they're setting it up. Looks like it could be fun. We haven't seen a good pirate movie in a long, long time.

    Damn Nick...you beat me to it.

    I wonder if they down at Disney are watching Cutthroat Island and saying ok...let's not do that, ok, dont do this...or see that, we wont be doing that.

    I guess I'm one of those in the really tiny minority who really likes Cutthroat Island. The actors didn't take themselves seriously at all, looks like they had fun doing it, and taken in a lighthearted vein it can be just as fun a ride watching them, too.
    Still, it'd be nice to see Geena Davis do something as good as her Long Kiss Goodnight role again; guess it won't be this new pirate flick though. At least it has Depp!

    I'm also in that tiny minority, I liked CI. I am looking very forward to PC. Being a Depp fan, I have high hopes it may be good. I'm also a huge fan of the ride, just road it last night in fact. Can't wait for a real trailer.

    There's something that seems wrong and contradictory about a Jerry Bruckheimer movie starring Johnny Depp.

    Sounds promising.
    BTW I too belong to the minority that liked Cuthroat Island.

    Count me in as someone who thoroughly enjoyed Cutthroat Island as well. In fact, when I first saw the movie I loved it and recommended it to several people who enjoyed it as well.
    It wasn't until later that I heard that it recieved bad word-of-mouth and tanked at the box office.
    From what I can see here though, it looks like our growing "minority" is starting to look like a silent-majority.
    I guess what they say is true - compliments are rarely communicated while complaints are dished out in abundance.
    Moe.

    Cool, a pirate movie. If they make one about ninjas, I'd die a happy man.

    I enjoyed Nate and Hayes and Cutthroat Island as pirate movies.
    This one looks pretty good to me.
    I look forward to it!

    I saw a trailer for this when I saw the 2 towers. This has been my favorite ride since I was a kid. So I will see the movie. Although I'm probably in the minority that is not a fan of Johnny Depp and that is the only drawback for me.

    It'll have to be pretty good to beat The Pirate Movie [​IMG] (paging Peter Staddon...)
