When I went to see 300 this weekend, I was shocked to find crowds of fans dressed as pirates lined up to see the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. I know these movies make a lot of money, but I had no idea the franchise had such a rabid following as to inspired costumed pilgrimages on a Sunday afternoon.
The final installment of Disney's trilogy hits theaters May 25, and unlike last year's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, this movie appears to have a plot. Will (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) team up with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) to liberate our beloved Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and travel to Singapore to confront a scary Chinese pirate played by Chow Yun-Fat.
Judging from the trailer, this movie looks to be at least as good as the first Pirates, if not better. I know you guys are psyched about it too. To watch,
