Pirates 5 and Star Wars 7 Releases Rescheduled


Walt Disney Pictures made Johnny Depp one of the most famous actors in the world when Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl first hit theaters in 2003. Ten years later, after three sequels, the last of which was regretfully lacking in originality and excitement, Depp is once again stepping into the boots of Captain Jack Sparrow for a fifth Pirates installment. With the production going smoothly, many were surprised to hear that the studio has decided to move the release date for the sequel back to 2016, instead of the originally slated July 2015 release. According to production president Sean Bailey, the studio is simply taking the time to ensure a well written script that can fulfill the expectations of audiences around the globe and hopefully bring some redemption to the franchise. While Disney is pushing Pirates back an entire year, Twentieth Century Fox is also moving the next Star Wars sequel back for a holiday release date instead of summer 2015. Star Wars movies have a history of being released in May, beginning with the original and all the way up to the most recent, but maybe this will be good for Star Wars. A lot of successful movies are released during the holiday season, most recently Les Miserables andThe Hobbit, so it could end up paying off for the studio in the end. We’ll have to wait and see.
