Sorry, but…

The Pirates of The Caribbean: At World’s End trailer kicks ass… even in Russian. (And even if it isn’t there when you click on it…)

    I just hope this one clocks in under two and a half hours. There was so much tedium in the last one. Great effects and everything, I just hope it’s as fun as the first one.

    Whoever handles Disney marketing for the Russian territory is in deep ship…this is supposed to be embargoed worldwide until tomorrow.

  4. Teh Awesome says:

    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by The Walt Disney Company.

  5. Eric says:

    Was the second one really that much longer than the first? They were both too long, but a ton of fun nonetheless.

  6. EDouglas says:

    Eric, the second wasn’t that much longer… but it just felt like it cause it wasn’t as well-paced.

  7. Wrecktum says:

    Pirates 1 was 143 minutes.
    Pirates 2 was 151 minutes.

  8. Wrecktum says:

    Oh…and Pirates 3 will be longer than Pirates 2, bet on it.

  9. Blackcloud says:

    Any longer and they might as well call it “Pirates of the Caribbean: Lord of the Rings.”

    On they are promoting the world premiere of the trailer tonight at 10 PM EDT.
    Nice of them to avoid conflict with 24 :-)

    David, what’s all this rampant rumor of Gong Li being in Indy 4? Tell us what you know.

    Here’s a scene from the movie, with a countdown to the trailer tonight:

    By the way, I saw this trailer at ShoWest. It’s hot.

    No one gets fired for leaking something good to the net or the press. They get fired for leaking bad reports to them.

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.

“They’re still talking about the ‘cathedral of cinema,’ the ‘communal experience,’ blah blah. The experiences I’ve had recently in the theatre have not been good. There’s commercials, noise, cellphones. I was watching Colette at the Varsity, and halfway through red flashes came up at the bottom of the frame. A woman came out and said, ‘We’re going to have to reboot, so take fifteen minutes and come back.’ Then they rebooted it from the beginning, and she had to ask the audience to tell her how far to go. You tell me, is that a great experience? I generally don’t watch movies in a cinema at all. Netflix is the future. It’s the present. But the whole paradigm of a series, binge-watching, it’s quite different. My first reaction is that it’s more novelistic, because if you have an eight-hour season, you can get into complex, intricate things. You can let it breathe and the audience expectations are such that they will let you, where before they wouldn’t have the patience. I think only the surface has been touched with experimenting with that.”
