I don't know how reliable that information about the Premier is -- for starters, May 18th is not a Wednesday. It might be a good idea to wait for the official announcement.

It might be just a little mistake for the third website because those three different websites basically state the same thing in different ways...

Exclusive New Look At Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge

Pirates Of The Caribbean is setting sail for its fifth voyage soon – and with the new issue of Empire also dropping anchor this week, we bring bounty from Davy Jones’ Locker. Specifically, a brand new and exclusive image from the film known as Salazar’s Revenge here in the UK, and Dead Men Tell No Tales in the US. Take a look below, and click to embiggen.

► Show Spoiler


Here, we see Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp, in possibly his final Pirates adventure) squaring up to old sparring partner Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), both of whom have appeared in every film in the franchise thus far. Speaking to Empire, the cast and crew seemed keen to return to the spirit of 2003’s franchise opener, The Curse Of The Black Pearl.

“I like all of the films in the franchise, but the first one is my first love,” says Joachim Rønning, the Norwegian co-director of the new film. “For me, it was important to come back to a character dynamic where it is about relatable, real people — some of the people are real, at least — then Jack Sparrow comes in and crashes the party. It was also very important to bring more comedy back in. I feel like they lost some of the humour. This is Buster Keaton on steroids.”

Buster Keaton on steroids sounds like something we would watch. For the full insane story on Salazar’s Revenge, which takes in script delays, mass vomiting, cast injuries and a homicidal monkey, pick up a copy of the new issue of Empire, on sale from Thursday 20 April. Want to get your copy days before anyone else? Subscribe to Empire here.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, meanwhile, arrives in cinemas from 25 May.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Will Turner’s son recalls first scene with Jack Sparrow

► Show Spoiler


One does not simply act opposite Jack Sparrow.

Brenton Thwaites, 27, grew up in a world where Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow was an almost instantly iconic comic creation, a character pop culture embraced with open arms from the moment Depp debuted him in the first Pirates of the Caribbean film in 2003.

Now, Thwaites is the star of the fifth movie in the Pirates franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales (in theaters May 26), but stepping up as Henry Turner, the new face of the series, means sharing a certain amount of screen time with the reigning one.

“My first scene with [Johnny], if I’m remembering correctly, was the scene where Henry is trying to convince Jack Sparrow to team up with him and find this ancient treasure that could one, help Henry, and two, ultimately save Jack — so, a lot of things going on,” Thwaites says with a chuckle. Backstory- and exposition-heavy scenes can indeed be tough for actors to pull off, but they were hardly the present daunting challenge.

“I just remember being absolutely terrified, like I’d never acted in my life before doing this scene,” says Thwaites. “I just remember thinking, ‘How am I going to stand there and talk to Johnny Depp for three minutes, opposite a character that I’d grown up with in my teenage years? It’s not going to be possible.”

Ultimately, of course, it was — and the actor even calls the exchange “one of the finer scenes” he had on the film.

Beyond the Sparrow of it all, the mere idea of being in Pirates was enough to evoke a certain giddiness out of Thwaites, but that joy is only compounded by the early praise that’s lauded the film for its return to the original’s romantic and comic (but decidedly not rom-com) roots. “It means everything, mate, and that was the goal that [directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg] were going for,” says the Australian-born actor. “That mix of darkness, adventure, love, and swashbuckling were something that none of us had really seen on the screen before, and it was so fresh and exciting and it was the goal for number five to bring all those elements back to the screen, all those ingredients that made such a tasteful cocktail in the first one.” All those, and rum.

This part of Entertainment Weekly's article is horrifying to me... "Now, Thwaites is the star of the fifth movie in the Pirates franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales (in theaters May 26), but stepping up as Henry Turner, the new face of the series, means sharing a certain amount of screen time with the reigning one."

Thwaites is taking over as the new face of the series??? For me, if Johnny is bowing out (or being pushed out), the series will hold no further interest! :smh: :no2: :mad: :bawl:

I share your sentiments, DebbieJCDFan. Johnny's Jack Sparrow is not the main draw for me in the POTC series - he is truly the only draw. I would never go to the theater to see a POTC film without him in it and I probably wouldn't even bother checking it out on Netflix. Now, if Henry Turner turned out to really be Henry Sparrow (just when did Lizzie get pregnant anyway), well, that might be a twist I'd want to investigate. Not to mention it providing selective inclusion of Jack on some level, even if eventually only in conversation . . . forever.

Whatever Jack Sparrow's future is, though, I sure hope Johnny is the one making the call - he certainly deserves that consideration, IMHO. No matter how Disney may try to spin it, anyone with half a brain knows there'd be no franchise had it not been for Johnny's magic, plain and simple. Love the character, love the man.

Orlando Bloom was supposed to be "the star" of COTBP... it was Will's story that the movie focuses on throughout, yet Jack stole the show. I would guess in this new one, Henry's story is the main focus. The difference now is that people know more or less what to expect from Jack, but I think it will be up to the viewer who their star is. It is kind of weird that they not only call Henry "the star", but "the new face of the series". That's a line that could be interpreted at least a couple ways, similar to "the final adventure begins".
