‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is a huge franchise.
In China, it’s gigantic. The films are bigger than Star Wars there, which is wild. Shanghai Disney has a ride for Pirates of the Carribean that’s not only like any Pirates ride in the states, but it’s unlike any ride in the world. With all this, why wouldn’t you have the first ever World Premiere for a big time Hollywood film like the latest in the franchise ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ outside the ride in Shanghai for thousands of screaming fans?
In the above interview from the World Premiere Javier Bardem talks about how excited he is to be a part of the franchise and about the Chines fans, Brenton Thwaites tells us when he first came into contact with the Pirates franchise, Geoffrey Rush explains his character Barbossa’s timeline throughout the films, Producer Jerry Bruckheimer discusses the amazing cast and crew, Orlando Bloom explains why he and other aren’t tired of the franchise, and Johnny Depp talks about his love for returning to the one and only Jack Sparrow.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales releases May 26, 2017.
