Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: Johnny Depp needs money

So many movie trailers during the Super Bowl, including a new one for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, aka Johnny Depp needs money. It’s not that expectations were never high for Pirates 5 given how much money it cost to make. But now, for Johnny, it’s also personal. Because if Pirates 5 doesn’t do well, it’s harder to justify Pirates 6. And since he’s short on cash, he’ll want the paycheque from Pirates 6. Sounds like he’s desperate for the paycheque from Pirates 6. And any other Fast Furious Transformers paycheque they might be willing to give him. At this point, he might even consider the Baywatch sequel.

Previous versions of the Pirates 5 trailer did not include Johnny’s Captain Jack Sparrow to build anticipation. In this installment, Captain Jack finally shows up, under a layer of mud. Because it’s not Johnny Depp if there aren’t 18 scarves, 45 earrings, and earth smeared all over him. What’s interesting is that the movie actually seems interesting independent of him. The effects look great. Javier Bardem looks great – I love the way his hair floats around as if he exists in water, even when he’s on land. And, um, Brenton Thwaites looks really, really great. He’s not even in this trailer and I can still remember how pretty he is.

But, whatever, the intended draw here is Johnny’s “Pirate’s Life”. And the idea that his Jack Sparrow is the Johnny Cash of the outlaw seas. Right. I’m sure Johnny Cash would have spent $30K a month having his favourite wines flown to him anywhere he was in the world.
