‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ sets sail for 2017 premiere

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 -

It’s been fifteen years since Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow first enchanted audiences with his aloof eccentricity and Keith Richard’s accent in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”

Since then Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise has blossomed into four feature films, countless games, toys, and even theme park rides. The question that remains is, “will we ever see Jack Sparrow grace the big screen again?”

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
