'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Release Date 2017 Announced for Johnny Depp Movie Series
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was originally supposed to released next year, in 2015, but now they have revealed that they have pushed the official release date to July 7, 2017.
Why has the Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) movie series been on delay? The two main reasons reported have been the flop of Depp's Lone Ranger movie in which Disney lost $190 million and also an unfinished script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
The July 7, 2017 date right now is pretty wide open (granted its 3 years out) so it has a chance to stand on its own for great box office sales. It will have some competition from Fantastic Four 2, which is set to release on July 14, 2017, and Despicable Me 3, which opens June 30, 2017.
The last movie released in the "Pirates" franchise, was 2011′s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which was not critically received as the best movie in the series but still grossed more than $1 billion around the world.
The fifth film, tentatively titled "Dead Men Tell No Tales," will use Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, who took over for Rob Marshall (who in turn had taken over for Gore Verbinski.) The long awaited movie will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
The movie franchise began in 2003, with the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Johnny Depp brought to life Captain Jack Sparrow and has become one of his most recognizable characters in his illustrious career (and also a favorite halloween costume for countless people).
Through four movies, the franchise has grossed $3.7 billion worldwide at the box office since 2003.
