Quote (CarolKoster @ Sep. 21, 2003 7:31 am/pm)
What I meant was:  General talk like a pirate should STAY at the Talk Like a Pirate Day thread in the Off-Topic area, any quoting from the Disney movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" should go here the pre-existing thread in Live Action Disney movies about that movie.

Okay, okay - - I misunderstood. I agree. I've reopened the Talk Like A Pirate thread again -- go there to have fun pretending to be a salty old pie-rat. And stay here and reply if you have quotes you love from the movie and (upcoming) DVD or to review it.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Coming to this news late, but better late than never, quoting from Yahoo! Movies site:

10/23/03) There's no script yet, but "Variety" is now reporting that Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer may develop both the second and third movies to be filmed back-to-back, as was recently done with the two 'Matrix' sequels. In addition to getting the third movie in theaters a lot faster, this approach is also a great way to save money on the production costs. I also wonder if this might be a smart move since Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom are both on such rocketing career paths. If "Pirates of the Caribbean 3" isn't greenlit fast enough, they might no longer be reasonably affordable when that time comes around. Planning the sequels this way also allows Disney to craft a trilogy rather than a series of oddly-disconnected extensions of the original story (as some sequels sometimes feel).

End of quoted material about PotC sequels.

Happened to see a TV trailer for this film today, it's 1/3 a Miramax film, 1/3 a Universal Studios film and 1/3 a 20th Century Fox film and the fine print says the ownership is actually 20th Century Fox.  It caught me in tht the muisic as used on the TV trailer sounded very similar to PotC's movie music.  Anyway, the film is called "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" starring Russell Crowe as (get this) Captain Jack Aubrey ("Captain Jack", now where have we heard that before....?  ).  It's maybe not a pirate film, but if folks liked the seafaring ways of "Pirates of the Caribbean:  The Curse of the Black Pearl" I wonder how they'll take to this entry in the seafaring/swashbuckling sort of genre?  It's also rated PG-13 as "Pirates" was and opens in theatres November 2003.  If you want to see how similar it looks to "Pirates", go to the site "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World".
"Pirates" is more lighthearted, "Master and Commander" seems much more dramatic, and both star major Hollywood box office drawing actors, among other similarities.

Movie competition is sure out there, and this movie opens in theatres 18 days before "Pirates" goes to DVD and home video.  How do you think it will do vs. "Pirates"?

As "Master and Commander" opens in theatres Friday, November 14, 2003, it might be fun to compare how that movie by Fox does vs. "Pirates of the Caribbean".  Keep in mind although M&C is owned by 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios and Miramax (a film division of Disney) are major investors in it.  So Disney fans have some reason to follow this movie other than the coincidence M&C and Pirates are both considered swashbuckler movies.

"Pirates of the Caribbean" opened on a Wednesday during the summer, July 9, 2003.  On it's opening day in 3,023 theatres it made $13,509,262.  On Pirates' first Friday-Saturday-Sunday of opening week, July 11, 12 and 13, 2003, it grossed at the US box office $46,630,690 at 3,269 theatres.  As of Monday, November 10 it is still playing on weekends here and there in the US, and as of Monday November 10, 2003 it made in domestic gross box office $302,692,000, estimated, and played in theatres in the US for 115 days.

You can check at Box Office Mojo for how "Master and Commander" does.  You can also track it on two specialized charts, for Pirates and for Swashbuckler, just go to the left hand column and click "Genres" and go to those two categories to track the movie and how it fares against those of a similar subject.

Update on "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" the Disney movie vs. "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" owned by 20th Century Fox, in which Disney film division Miramax has investment stake and both movies are "swashbucklers".  The information for "Master and Commander" are estimated for its opening weekend, final figures due Monday afternoon November 17, 2003 on Box Office Mojo (www.boxofficemojo.com):

Pirates opened on a Wednesday (July 9, 2003) on 3,023 movie screens in the U.S.  On opening day it grossed $13,509, 262.  On Pirates' first Friday-Saturday-Sunday after opening it played on 3,269 screens and grossed $46,630,690.  It's production budget was $140,000,000 and marketing costs are estimated to be $40,000,000.  As of November 13, 2003 Pirates has grossed in the U.S. $302,977,271 (and yes it's still playing in US theatres somewhere! ) and has been in domestic theatres for 128 days.  It's rated PG-13.  After Pirates' opening weekend it was ranked #1 at the US domestic box office.

Master and Commander opened on Friday November 14, 2003 on 3,101 screens.  On its opening day it grossed in the U.S. $8,200,000.  After its opening Friday-Saturday-Sunday it grossed in the U.S. $25,725,000 and ranks #2 at the U.S. domestic box office (#1 is "Elf" this weekend) .  It's production budget is $170,000,000 and estimated marketing costs $30,000,000.

So far, it's looking like "Pirates of the Caribbean" is the more successful of the two movies as we head into the busy holiday movie season.

Look around at the retailers offering "Pirates" for sale, look for any little extras there may be.  At Wal-Mart they are offering a free pirate medallion "while supplies last" along with the home video.  The "catch" is that you can get the medallion at 12:01 am Tuesday December 2 or at 6 am on Tuesday December 2.   That's right, either set your alarm clock for very early Tuesday morning, or else just stay up late Monday night and head in to Wal-Mart for that free pirate medallion.  OK.  The other little thing to look for is a voucher inside the "Pirates" case for a ticket to see "Haunted Mansion" movie.  I just saw the placards up at our local Wal-Mart today.  If anyone is out and about this weekend check around for various video retailers and whether they are offering any particular incentives to buy "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" on Tuesday, December 2.  Either general incentives or particularly to entice the consumer to buy, from them, on that one date.  And what are the prices the VHS/DVD seems to be costing in your area or favorite video retailer?  Feel free to post this info, help out others who may be interested.
