Avast thar, ye scurvy scalawags! “”“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is now out on home video, and in celebration Disney brought a replica of Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship The Black Pearl to Santa Monica Beach in Southern California, along with a crew of buccaneers– led by “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Martin Klebba– to teach members of the media how to be pirates!
Klebba (who played “Marty” in four “Pirates” movies for Disney) and company taught classes on talking like a pirate, sword fighting, flag hoisting, treasure collecting, cannonball loading and puzzle solving, all in service of getting the word out about the arrival of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms.
WATCH THE BLACK PEARL IN SANTA MONICA:
I also received a review copy of the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” Blu-ray set, and it’s definitely a must-own for anyone who enjoyed the film in theaters– and perfect to check out for those who haven’t seen it yet.
The movie is presented in pristine 1080p High Definition Widescreen (with an aspect ratio of 2.40:1), and audio track options consist of 7.1 DTS-HDMA English, English 2.0 Descriptive Audio, 5.1 Dolby Digitial Spanish and French, plus multi-language subtitles.
Bonus features include the exhaustive behind-the-scenes documentary “Dead Men Tell More Tales: The Making of a New Adventure” (with sub-chapters chronicling everything from Ghost Sharks to new franchise stars Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario), bloopers, and deleted scenes such as the “Highwayman” sequence below.
WATCH “HIGHWAYMAN” DELETED SCENE:
All told, this latest entry in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” series will fit right in alongside the rest of your home video collection, especially if you’re a fan of swashbuckling adventure, striking visual effects, seafaring romance, and of course Johnny Depp.
