Be sure to pick up your copy of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on 4K UHD/Blu-ray Combo Pack on 10/3! #PiratesLife


Have you had the chance to see the latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales? This action packed movie is set to sail off on 4K UHD/Blu-ray Combo Pack on 10/3!
Johnny Depp returns as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. 
                
At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” also stars Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, Stephen Graham as Scrum, and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.  Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are directing “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing.

Jack is back baby! Ready for a new adventure in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. For the latest tale we find our intrepid Captain Sparrow on the run (can't he ever catch a break?!) from his old nemesis Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) and his band of deadly ghost pirates, not only do they want to put an end to our favorite Captain, they want to lay waste to every pirate at sea! Jack's only hope is to find the powerful artifact the Trident of Poseidon, the artifact will grant total control of the seas. Will Jack get the trident? What will Barbossa do? Will someone finally keep the monkey away from the explosives?! What about Will Turner? Was that Paul McCartney?! These questions will be answered in the movie, I don’t want to spoil it for those who have not seen the movie yet…
I enjoyed the movie, I've grown close to these characters over the past 14 years and I'm glad to see this franchise return to form again. We get everything from funny lines to crazy stunts, wonderful effects. This movie provides you with some great moments and the visuals are simply stunning. Each character seems to have his or her own interesting thing going on in the movie and it was neat to see the filmmakers explore those things. 
And don't worry there are surprises that will well surprise you!  This is a character driven movie, Johnny Depp is awesome as Jack Sparrow, it comes so naturally to him, it's like Jack is really an extension of Johnny. Javier Bardem and Geoffrey Rush are their usual brilliant selves. And newcomers Brenton Thwaites (Henry Turner) and Kaya Scodelario (Carina Smyth) are a nice addition to the pirate's universe. 
This is a movie more in the mold of the Black Pearl, it had that same amount of fun and whimsy and doesn't take itself too seriously. Of course there are many many  bonus features. We loved seeing the blooper reels, they are always hilarious, and it is fun to see your favorite characters out of character. I loved checking out the meet Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario extra, it brought me back to when I had an interview with Brenton Thwaites and an interview with Kaya Scodelario they were so down to earth and fun to meet.
