Pirates of the Caribbean

While Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean has opened to good response at the U.S. box office, R-Rated comedy-drama Baywatch had a surprisingly low opening. Much of it likely depends on Depp, and cast members were not eager to imagine a "Pirates of the Caribbean" without him aboard. Newcomers include Javier Bardem as Armando Salazar, Golshifteh Farahani as Shansa, Stephen Graham as Scrum, Kaya Scodelario as Carina Smyth, Brenton Thwaites as Henry Turner and David Wenham as Scarfield.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales", a Walt Disney Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for "some suggestive content and adventure violence". Along for the ride also come Sparrow's crew and former enemy Captain Barbosa, as they all try to escape Spanish Captain Salazar, who is seeking revenge on Jack Sparrow after escaping the Devil's Triangle. A handsome baddie in the jigsaw-shape of Javier Bardem's vengeful ghost Captain Salazar, the big-budget, big ocean, National Geographic vistas (both above and under water), the reluctant young, feisty lovers, and the return of Depp's Indiana Richards turn.

Pros: New directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg ("Kon Tiki") keep the pace tighter, the tale more seafaring and the visuals more interesting than in the last few (almost unendurable) installments. The film will not open in Japan until July 1.

But what about the story? Though the promise of the return of two key characters might've been a bit overstated, it's still nice to see their return and conclusion to their story. Below, check out the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales worldwide box office tracking.

"People go through all kinds of weird stuff in the world", Bloom said.

One's enjoyment of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" comes down to one thing: how you view the rest of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" saga. Or that there will be a pirate cameo from a classic rock star.

The fifth Pirates film is expected to make $80 million domestically over Memorial Day weekend. Back in 2003, Johnny Depp delighted us and the Academy (he nabbed an Oscar nomination, remember) as Captain Jack Sparrow, slurring and staggering his way through a role he refused to play straight.

Also available in Disney Digital 3D, RealD 3D and IMAX 3D.
