In Bill Paxton’s name! I’m still not recovered from the new Alien trailer and Disney comes from the ceiling with a doozy of a second trailer for the new Pirates movie. Listen, I hear all the people out there saying “who asked for a new Pirates movie?”, “it’s just a money grab”, “Matt is super handsome and his blogs are always super funny.” I’ve heard it all. All that those types of comments tell me is that they are not invested in the characters. I’ve been engrossed in the Pirates-verse since day one. Actually, longer than day one, that ride was and is my favorite ride at Disney World, hand down. Can’t we just enjoy a fun movie with pirates and an excellent score? Seriously though, Han Zimmer’s score is the stuff of legends. Right up there with John Williams and Star Wars.
If you thought I was excited for a new Transformers movie, it doesn’t even come close to how excited I am for a new Pirates movie. Kind of shitty that the 4th one didn’t have Orlando Bloom, so i’m glad to see him back in this one.
PS – This Cash song is suddenly super popular for movie trailers.
It’s no secret (among my group of friends) that I am a HUGE fan of the Disney Pirates movies. Maybe it’s because I loved the ride as a kid (and an adult). Maybe it’s because I love pirates and pirate themed things. Or maybe it’s because once, at a medieval fair, I traced my families origins back to a family in Portugal that were known pirates (I’m basically a pirate). Whatever the reason, I know that I am all kinds of jazzed up for the next installment of this storied franchise. and who did they get as the antagonist? Javier Bardem! If you were to ask me who I wanted to be a baddie pirate in the new movie, Javier would have bee top-10, easily. Right after Bill Paxton, Kurt Russel and Nick Cage.
