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.

“I remember very much the iconography and the images and the statues in church were very emotional for me. Just the power of that, and even still — just seeing prayer card, what that image can evoke. I have a lot of friends that are involved in the esoteric, and I know some girls in New York that are also into the supernatural. I don’t feel that I have that gift. But I am leaning towards mysticism… Maybe men are more practical, maybe they don’t give into that as much… And then also, they don’t convene in the same way that women do. But I don’t know, I am not a man, I don’t want to speak for men. For me, I tend to gravitate towards people who are open to those kinds of things. And the idea for my film, White Echo, I guess stemmed from that — I find that the girls in New York are more credible. What is it about the way that they communicate their ideas with the supernatural that I find more credible? And that is where it began. All the characters are also based on friends of mine. I worked with Refinery29 on that film, and found that they really invest in you which is so rare in this industry.”

“The word I have fallen in love with lately is ‘Hellenic.’ Greek in its mythology. So while everyone is skewing towards the YouTube generation, here we are making two-and-a-half-hour movies and trying to buck the system. It’s become clear to me that we are never going to be a perfect fit with Hollywood; we will always be the renegade Texans running around trying to stir the pot. Really it’s not provocation for the sake of being provocative, but trying to make something that people fall in love with and has staying power. I think people are going to remember Dragged Across Concrete and these other movies decades from now. I do not believe that they will remember some of the stuff that big Hollywood has put out in the last couple of years. You’ve got to look at the independent space to find the movies that have been really special recently. Even though I don’t share the same world-view as some of my colleagues, I certainly respect the hell out of their movies which are way more fascinating than the stuff coming out of the studio system.”
