PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2: DEAD MAN'S CHEST promo art + Details about Davey Jones!

Hey folks, Harry here... Spy by the name of Riggs sent this in, says it's from the Video Game tie-in that will be coming out next summer (that's summer 06 for you folks that get confused easily) and typically this sort of advance advance promotional art is similar to the theatrical materials as well. Figured it would give you folks that like to have desktops for films over a year away... something to show off. Can't wait for a full spoiler filled report on this sucker. The few little tidbits we've had on the site just ain't been juicy enough... Should be really good though, shouldn't it?

Hey folks, Harry here again - and this just came in fresh off the pixel presses... Bill Nighy talking about his involvement in this here yaaarn. Here ye goes...

Mornin' all!

If this is news to you, sweet as. If not, just slap me. Either way, it's Bill Nighy!!! And it's one of only a few things that could've made me smile at this time of the morning. Anyway...

I've just caught part of an interview on BBC breakfast news with Bill Nighy. He was mainly being interviewed on his role in HHGTTG, (cool), aswell as some Richard Curtis film in which he'll probably be the only saving grace of once more... Anyway...

Apart from these two projects, he also let slip a couple of details about his role in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 AND 3.. Bill Nighy IS Davey Jones!!!! In Bill Nighy's words, everything Mister Jones does is pure evil, and he has at his command (how was not disclosed) a huge sea monster (what kind was not disclosed...) to destroy any ships he saw fit (which ships was not disclosed......) So, yeah. Oh, you wanted details? Heh. Sorry. But it's from Bill Nighy's mouth, and cool as this sounds, goddam him, he's a bit of a tease.

So there you have it. That's all I have to give, but it's yours.

Have a good day, take care, and, oh yeah... If you use this, call me Ahab...

    If you want to see Keiras chest, see "the Jacket" with Adrian Brody, she does a bath scene and although they are very small, theyre nicely shaped. ill give her that (ill also give her a big plate of pasta and some bread to with it, god that girl is skinny) You know what Id do to her if I ever had the chance? oh man, I would feed her... first anyway..

    I went into the original without much in the way of expectations and left with a big grin on my face. It was a perfect summer movie. Plus it had zombie pirates. You can't go wrong with zombie pirates! Or maybe skeleton pirates would be more accurate. Either way, it's all good.

    This talkback makes me nauseated. What is with all this crap about Keira's "chest" and all the disgusting commentary on degrading female actors to being mere sluts to entertain dirty pervs? Its a friggin' KIDS was created and marketed for you can pull your pants back up b/c they aren't going to show you anything worth perving over. I agree that the teaser is just the plain-old, same-old with a crappy two "painted" on the back. I hope the real poster is better than the first poster, which was pretty dull. I liked the first one and I will see the second just out of the spirit of CHILDHOOD.

    The 2

    by Darth Maui

    The 2 is not a permanent fixture. It is just there on the promo art. The reason a subtitle was added to the first was so in case they wanted to make more they wouldn't have to number them, and also so it wouldn't look weird for subsequent movies to have a subtitle but not for the first one to have one.

  • April 19, 2005, 2:19 p.m. CST

    Depp made the first one watchable

    by MiserableRainGod

    The rest of it was fairly crap. It had potential, but the director couldn't decide on a tone for the film, and it really threw everything else off. Was it supposed to be silly? Comedy? Horror? Swashbuckler? Action-adventure? Unfortuantely it tried to be all of the above and didn't work. This movie is very hard to watch, and too long taboot. Johnny Depp is great in it, though; he has the only real character in the film, everyone else is just an archetype. I'll see the second one, though, because my girlfriend loved the first one and will drag me.

    by malinky

    I loved POTC:TCOTBP and i can't understand how people call themselves film fans and then have nothing nice to say - even about other people who still enjoy movies. What happened to discussing which parts we ENJOYED the most instead of breasts and trying to sound smart by nit-picking. Johnny Depp was great, Keira was spunky, Geoffrey Rush was joyfully chewing up the scenery, Orlando even managed to achieve some comic timing... and some of the pirate sidekicks were great! And anyone who listened to the commentary with Johnny Depp and the director and DIDN'T realise that they were totally stoned is just a bit silly really! smile people, thats what movies are for! malinky - spokesperson for the 'We Like Movies Brigade'

    Ergonomic Boob Mousepads?

    by phortonfour

    Oh dear. Have you seen the adverts on the left-hand side? Who would buy one of those? Mind you, advertisers tend to go where the market is...

  • I had assumed that parents went to see children's movies b/c they couldn't effin' let their kids go on their own. I wouldn't know, I am not a parent. Now assuming that "mommy" doesn't care for Keira's chest, won't daddy feel just a bit bad if he is thinking about looking at/fondling Keira's chest, while his child is sitting next to him? If not, then he might need to go to get some therapy. I agree with malinky about the whole "enjoying the movie part" but I wasn't trying to nitpick. I don't like the teaser poster, but I do realize that it is not the real poster or product. I am hoping for a great movie (despite being unable to remember a good sequel in a long time) and I generally enjoyed Keira's spunk, Johnny's craziness, and Orlando's do-good heroics. I love it b/c all generations can enjoy it's novel humour.

    by performingmonkey

    I hate it when people criticize Pirates for not knowing what it's meant to be. Why does everything have to be so pigeonholed for you assholes! Wake up and smell the ass cream. It's a fucking great movie with an excellent performance from Johnny Depp. I think it may be the fact that it IS a comedy that throws some people because movies of that kind and size usually have little laughs in them at all. But that's what makes it unique. And no matter what, you do care about the characters. Can't wait for the fucking sequel, hopefully with Kiera's shaven haven to boot! Fuck on, film fans!!!

    Rated "Arrrghhh"?

    by Lando Griffin

    yes that was lame but had to go there. anywho, I am not one to bash films cuz it all comes down to personal taste. I for one did not see what the big deal about the first one was. I saw it about a week or two after it came out and remember all my friends, co-workers and family members raving about it. "You haven't seen it?" followed by "You gotta see it!" Perhaps it was all the hype that made the "meh" factor in me rise. All the critical raves about the film in general and especially Depps performance made my "meh" factor go off the charts. People acted like it was the first "talkin' pit-cher" they ever seen. Uggh! Depps performance was nothing special, certainly not worthy of an Oscar nod. The movie was nothing special (not bashing, but not praising). I do also agree it was about 1/2 hour too long. I will probably see pt. 2 cuz I am a glutton for potential movie boredom (the reason i made the mistake of seeing Ring 2), big summer movies, etc. But I will go in with low expectations so I might come out finding it mildly enjoyable (a notch above "meh")

    Seconding Malinky's comments - Pirates rocked

    by Trader Groucho 2

    And I would add that the script was funny as hell, inventive, and actually lean (nothing set up in the film that didn't pay off). I for one am damn glad Verbinsky didn't get to shave off those 20 minutes he was whining about. I'd also like to thank every member of that test audience for enjoying the film and not being the average AICN talkbacker. One of the keys to comedy is giving a joke a second or two (or however many necessary) to marinate. Watch Mae West's best stuff - she understood this.

    So, to change topics like respectable adults...

    by mh

    So, what did you guys think of the soundtrack of the first movie? I liked some of the tracks, but it did feel a bit repetitive on a whole, but you don't notice that much in a movie with action on the screen. Does anyone know if they are signing on the same composer? I hope that if they do, it has some variation of the original music (if they decide to introduce it again). Any thoughts?

    RE: "Johnny Depp's excellent performance"

    by DoctorWho?

    I've read 5 people here use that qoute. It baffles me. I'm not gonna rip Depp, if your a fan, so be it. But damn, this guy is simply overrated! He's not "bad"...he's just "there" like a thousand other actors. He's perfect in the right role....kinda like Keanu. Keanu was perfect for Neo...not alot of facial expression deep emotional upheaval to portray. Mostly gets by with charismatic poses and cool roles. Same with Once Upon A Time In Mexico...the only direction needed there is "look cool, shoot guns,brood alot". But here he gets an Oscar nod for POTC...he was seriously displeased to not get it....remember his face? Tried to cover it well. He's got more range than Keanu, but not much.

    A dried up noodle...

    by Childe Roland

    ...embedded in a smudge of crusty pasta sauce on my range top has more depth and range than Keanu Reeves. Depp can create and sustain multiple, disparate and entertaining characters (Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, Donnie Brasco, Gilbert Grape) while Keanu is pretty much only capable of channeling that one surfer-dude trapped in a world he never made. I don't think Depp is the greatest actor in the world, but comparing him to Keanu is like comparing chocolate to poo because both are brown. Doesn't quite hold up on closer inspection.

    Typical AICN, before POTC came out everyone shit on it, afterwar

    by minderbinder

    POTC kicked ass, one of the best summer blockbusters in recent years. The whole cast nailed it, down to the smaller parts (McKenzie Crook and the guy with him were a riot). Geoffrey Rush gets totally overlooked because Depp stole the movie. The only thing that sucked was the music, they were given no time to do it and needed about ten composers to cover it, it's obvious that different cues are edited and reused in different parts of the movie. Let's hope they don't go with Zimmer next time.
