Foxtel Movies are setting sail with the complete Pirates Of The Caribbean collection for a special Pop-Up movie channel event. Board the Black Pearl this Easter Long Weekend.
Every film in the “Pirates” franchise features an all-star cast led by Johnny Depp as the savvy and eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow. Legendary Pirate of the Seven Seas, and Captain of the Black Pearl, Jack Sparrow is the irreverent trickster of the Caribbean. A Captain of equally dubious morality and sobriety, a master of self-promotion and self-interest, he ﬁghts a constant and losing battle with his own best tendencies.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Curse Of Black Pearl (2003): This heroic tale follows Pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and resourceful blacksmith, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) as they search for the love of Will’s life, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Elizabeth is the daughter of the Governor (Jonathan Pryce) and has been kidnapped by the feared Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush). Little do they know, but the fierce and clever Barbossa, along with his large crew, are under an ancient curse, doomed for eternity to neither live, nor die. That is, unless a blood sacrifice is made.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006): Captain Jack Sparrow is reminded he owes a debt to Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) who captains the Flying Dutchman, a ghostly ship with a crew from hell. Facing the “locker”, Jack must find the heart of Davy Jones but to save himself he needs the help of quick-witted Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann. If that’s not complicated enough, Will and Elizabeth are sentenced to hang, unless Will can get Jack’s enchanted compass and hand it over to Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander).
Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End (2007): Lord Cutler Beckett, now with control of Davy Jones’ heart, forms a dark alliance with him in order to rule the seas and wipe out the last of the Pirates. Captain Jack, Barbossa, Will, Elizabeth and crew must call all the Pirate Lords from the four corners of the globe to work together and make their final stand for freedom against Beckett, Jones, Norrington (Jack Davenport), the Flying Dutchman, and the entire East India Trading Company.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011): Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a beautiful woman from his past Angelica (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love – or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable Pirate Captain Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017): Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardam), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to succeed he needs the help of Will and Elizabeth’s son, Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites), the mysterious Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), and his old ‘frenemy’ Captain Barbossa.
