These reactions make me cautiously optimistic going forward.  I like the Pirates franchise, and even though I’ve grown a bit tired of Depp’s schtick, I’m not opposed to the series returning to its former greatness.  Hopefully, the film lives up to the hype that’s coming out of CinemaCon.

Starring Johnny DeppBrenton ThwaitesKaya Scodelario, Javier BardemGeoffrey Rush, David Wenham, Keith Richards, and Paul McCartney, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens in theaters on May 26th.
