Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean is an American fantasy swashbuckler film series produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on Walt Disney’s theme park attraction of the same name. The film series serves as a major component of the eponymous media franchise.

Directors of the series include Gore Verbinski (films 1–3), Rob Marshall (4), Joachim Rønning (5–6), and Espen Sandberg (5). The series is primarily written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio (1–4); other writers include Stuart Beattie (1), Jay Wolpert (1), Jeff Nathanson (5), and Craig Mazin (6). The stories follow the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley).

Characters such as Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and Joshamee Gibbs (Kevin McNally) follow Jack, Will, and Elizabeth in the course of the films. Other featured characters include James Norrington (Jack Davenport), Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), and Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris). The fourth film features Blackbeard (Ian McShane) and Angelica (Penélope Cruz), while the fifth film features Armando Salazar (Javier Bardem), Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario).

The films take place in a fictionalized version of the Golden Age of Piracy, and are set primarily in the Caribbean.

The film series started in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which had a positive reception from audiences and film critics. It grossed US$654 million worldwide.[1] After the first film’s success, Walt Disney Pictures announced that a film series was in the works. The franchise’s second film, subtitled Dead Man’s Chest, was released in 2006 and broke financial records worldwide the day of its premiere.

Dead Man’s Chest became the top-grossing movie of 2006 with almost US$1.1 billion at the worldwide box office. The third film in the series, subtitled At World’s End, followed in 2007 earning US$960 million. Disney released a fourth film, subtitled On Stranger Tides, in 2011 in conventional 2D, Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D. On Stranger Tides succeeded in also grossing more than $1 billion,[1] becoming the second film in the franchise and only the eighth film in history to do this, at the time of release. A fifth film, subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, was released in 2017.

The franchise has grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide;[1] it is the 14th-highest-grossing film series of all time, and is the first film franchise to produce two or more movies that grossed over $1 billion.

In the early 1990s screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio conceived a supernatural spin on the pirate genre after completing work on Aladdin, but there was no interest from any studio. Undeterred, the writing team refused to give up the dream, waiting for a studio to pick up their take on a pirate tale.[17] Disney had Jay Wolpert write a script based on the Pirates of the Caribbean, which producer Jerry Bruckheimer rejected, feeling it was “a straight pirate movie”.

Bruckheimer brought Stuart Beattie in to rewrite the script in March 2002, due to his knowledge of piracy,[19] and later that month Elliott and Rossio were brought in.[18] Elliott and Rossio, inspired by the opening narration of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, decided to give the film a supernatural edge.[20] As the budget rose, Michael Eisner and Robert Iger threatened to cancel the film, though Bruckheimer changed their minds when he showed them concept art and animatics.

In June 2002, Gore Verbinski signed on to direct The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush signed on the following month to star.[19] Verbinski was attracted to the idea of using modern technology to resurrect a genre, one that had disappeared after the Golden Age of Hollywood, and recalled his childhood memories of the ride, feeling the film was an opportunity to pay tribute to the “scary and funny” tone of it.

Depp was attracted to the story as he found it quirky: rather than trying to find treasure, the crew of the Black Pearl were trying to return it in order to lift their curse; also, the traditional mutiny had already taken place. Verbinski approached Rush for the role of Barbossa, as he knew he would not play it with attempts at complexity, but with a simple villainy that would suit the story’s tone.

Orlando Bloom read the script after Rush, with whom he was working on Ned Kelly, suggested it to him.[23] Keira Knightley came as a surprise to Verbinski: he had not seen her performance in Bend It Like Beckham and was impressed by her audition.[22] Tom Wilkinson was negotiated with to play Governor Swann,[19] but the role went to Jonathan Pryce, whom Depp idolized.

Shooting for The Curse of the Black Pearl began on October 9, 2002 and wrapped by March 7, 2003.[19] Before its release, many executives and journalists had expected the film to flop, as the pirate genre had not been successful for years, the film was based on a theme-park ride, and Depp rarely made a big film.[24] However, The Curse of the Black Pearl became both a critical and commercial success.

After seeing how well the first film was made, the cast and crew signed for two sequels to be shot back-to-back,[25] a practical decision on Disney’s part to allow more time with the same cast and crew.[26] Writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio knew that with an ensemble cast, they weren’t free to invent totally different situations and characters, as with the Indiana Jones and James Bond series, and so had to retroactively turn The Curse of the Black Pearl into the first of a trilogy.

They wanted to explore the reality of what would happen after Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann’s embrace at the end of the first film, and initially considered the Fountain of Youth as the plot device.[28] They settled on introducing Davy Jones, the Flying Dutchman and the Kraken, a mythology mentioned twice in the first film. They introduced a fictionalized East India Trading Company as the primary antagonists (being only mentioned in the first film), which for them represented a counterpoint to the personal freedom represented by pirates.

Filming for the sequels began on February 28, 2005,[30] with Dead Man’s Chest finishing on March 1, 2006,[31] and At World’s End on January 10, 2007. The second film was also the first Disney theatrical feature film with the computer-generated Walt Disney Pictures logo.

 

Fourth film Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Rossio and Elliot discovered the novel On Stranger Tides during production of Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End and decided to use it as the basis for a fourth film. As Gore Verbinski was unavailable, Bruckheimer invited Rob Marshall to direct the film.[35] Elliott and Rossio decided to do a stand-alone film,[36] with a story that would support new characters,[37] and incorporate elements from the novel, such as Edward “Blackbeard” Thatch, the Fountain of Youth and mermaids—the latter two having been already alluded to in the previous films.

Depp, Rush, Kevin McNally, Greg Ellis, Damian O’Hare returned to their roles,[39] and the cast saw the additions of Ian McShane as Blackbeard and Penélope Cruz as Angelica, Blackbeard’s daughter and Jack Sparrow’s love interest.[40] A further addition was Richard Griffiths as King George II of Great Britain.

After the costly production of two simultaneous films, Disney tried to scale down the fourth installment, giving a lower budget,[41] which led to cheaper locations and fewer scenes with special effects.[42] However, with a budget of $378.5 million, On Stranger Tides holds the record for most expensive film ever made.

Filming for On Stranger Tides began on June 14, and ended on November 19, 2010.[42][43] It was also filmed in 3D, with cameras similar to the ones used in Avatar.[35]

It was released in the United States on May 20, 2011.

 

Fifth film Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)

Terry Rossio was confirmed to write the screenplay for the fifth installment in January 2011, without his co-writer Ted Elliott.[45] Jeff Nathanson signed on to write the script for the film in January 2013. Norwegian directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg were selected to direct on May 29 the same year.

The film’s title of the fifth film would be Dead Men Tell No Tales, alluding to the line well known from the Pirates of the Caribbean theme-park attraction.[47][48][49] The film was given an alternative title, Salazar’s Revenge, in selected European, South American, and Asian countries for marketing purposes.

They confirmed their involvement, and praised Jeff Nathanson’s “funny and touching” script, also being inspired by the first film of the franchise. Disney pushed back the film’s initial 2015 release,[53] with sources indicating that a Summer 2016 release was likely. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that script issues were behind the delay and that Jeff Nathanson was at work on a second attempt based on a well-received outline.[55]

A spokesman for the Australian Arts Minister confirmed that the fifth installment was set to shoot in Australia after the government agreed to repurpose $20 million of tax incentives originally intended for the remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Disney and Ian Walker the Queensland Arts Minister, confirmed in October 2014, that filming was expected to start in February 2015, and that it would take place exclusively in Australia, as the largest production to ever shoot in the country. Village Roadshow Studios and Port Douglas were officially confirmed as filming locations.[57] Production began in Australia on February 17, 2015, and wrapped on July 9.[58]

While Disney originally announced a release date for July 7, 2017, Dead Men Tell No Tales was released on May 26, 2017.

The Pirates of the Caribbean film series was successful at the box office, with each film grossing over $650 million, and all but Dead Men Tell No Tales at some point ranking among the fifty highest-grossing films of all time. It also became the first ever series to have multiple films passing the billion dollar mark in box office revenues with Dead Man’s Chest and On Stranger Tides,[70] since followed by other film franchises.

The Curse of the Black Pearl was the third-highest-grossing 2003 film in North America (behind The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Finding Nemo) and fourth worldwide (behind The Return of the KingFinding Nemo and The Matrix Reloaded).[71] Dead Man’s Chest was the most successful film of 2006 worldwide,[72] and At World’s End led the worldwide grosses in 2007, though being only fourth in North America (behind Spider-Man 3Shrek the Third and Transformers).

On Stranger Tides was the third-highest-grossing film of 2011 worldwide (behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and the fifth in North America.[74] The first three sequels broke box office records upon release, of which the most notable are the opening-weekend record in North America (Dead Man’s Chest),[75] the Memorial-Day weekend record in North America (At World’s End)[76] and the opening-weekend record outside North America (On Stranger Tides).

The series is noted for its high quality of acting talent. The visual and practical effects are considered some of the best ever done on film, so much so that audiences believed certain CGI elements of the films were real and done practically. However, the plots of the four sequels have received mixed reviews, with the general consensus that they are too bloated and convoluted to follow.

Pirates of the Caribbean is noted for reinvigorating the pirate film genre after decades of either no pirate films or failed pirate films.[105] The success of the series saw Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer try to replicate the franchise’s success by releasing films such as Prince of Persia: The Sands of TimeJohn Carter and The Lone Ranger, the latter of which was directed by Gore Verbinski. Said three films were critical and commercial failures.
