Movie Preview: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

The third installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean would fold its sails and come ashore on 24th May 2007, into our theatres.

More release dates here:

Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are back again after two hugely succesfully voyage since 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and last year's sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

Dead Man's Chest became only the third film in cinema history to rack in $1billion worldwide, behind Titanic and The Lord of the Rings.

The ending of Dead Man's Chest left us with the death of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he charged into the jaws of monstrous octopus Kraken, and the vow of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), as well as with the rest of the pirate crew to bring their captain back from the dead with the help of a laughing Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush).

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End would therefore be about the attempt to bring Captain Jack Sparrow back from the dead.
To put it more precisely, the captain is now captive in ghost pirate Davy Jones's Locker awaiting his rescue.

What you should know as well is that continuing from Dead Man's Chest, Davy Jones's beating heart has fallen into the hands of evil Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company who wants the monopoly of all sea trading to himself.
With the heart of Davy Jones, who controls the sea, Lord Beckett now controls everything.

There will be a new foe in At World's End.
He is the chinese pirate Captain Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fatt) of the South China Sea.

With old foe, Captain Barbossa becoming an ally, Captain Jack Sparrow and company would battle against the forces of the East India Trading Company, Davy Jones's ghost pirate crew and chinese pirate Captain Sao Feng.

At World's End have thrown away the whirlpool chase plot outline of Dead Man's Chest and gone back to straight-forward sea adventure action filled with sword fights and merry pirate humour.
It is about the pirate era coming to an end but not before one last battle in the name of pirate freedom.

Let's keep our eyes and mind wide open for another spectacle of a movie by Disney produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski.

*Andy will review Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's end when this week comes to... yes... an end.
