Question: Is "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" aka "Dead Men Tell No Tales" shooting in early 2015 per recent rumors: Answer: Hell, no. Disney announced today that 'Pirates 5' will land in theaters on July 7th, 2017. What does this mean? Well, it’s yet another delay. And considering the film was aiming for a summer 2015 release and then delayed again just last year, the filmmakers and producers are not close to shooting and probably still tinkering with the screenplay (and at this point considering how many writers have worked on that project, possibly starting from scratch). The film will land in theaters six years after “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” which was the lowest grossing film in the franchise domestically.

The Secret Life Of Houdini Johnny Depp
"The Secret Life Of Houdini" has been kicking around Hollywood for years now. Gary Ross and Joe Wright kicked the tires on the project but ultimately decided not to direct, with the less illustrious name of Dean Parisot ("Red 2," "Fun With Dick And Jane," "Galaxy Quest") signing up to direct last summer. But now the film has received a kick in the pants, thanks to none other than Johnny Depp.

Benedict Cumberbatch
Ok, here's a pairing you don't see everyday. While Johnny Depp and Guy Pearce together and side-by-side in the Whitey Bulger gangster pic "Black Mass" would have been a terrific paring, "The Rover" star has had to drop out for scheduling reasons. Alas, nothing to fear here Cross Creek Productions has found a more than viable replacement with in-demand actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

'Mortdecai'
Johnny Depp is a man of many faces, costumes, hairdos and appearances, obviously. His visages basically fall into two camps 1) looking like Johnny Depp’s “movie guy lead character” (i.e. that sort of generic look from “Transcendence” with those same round glasses he uses in so many of his “normal” roles) and 2) his wild and wacky transformations. But in this first look from his upcoming action comedy “Mortdecai,” well, maybe that appearance splits the difference.

Transcendence
We are the company we keep, and in the case of Wally Pfister, he and his professional cronies are some of the most iconic around. As DP alongside Christopher Nolan, his outlook working with key actors promises a certain atmosphere, a unique method. So here we are: a gloomy thriller trying to ground its at-times-daffy premise, emphasis on a grieving protagonist, with supporting turns from Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy. These aren’t rumored plot details from Nolan’s “Interstellar,” however. No, in mounting his feature directorial debut, “Transcendence,” Pfister has chosen to tackle familiarity head on, carving out a new arena for himself while rigging the grounds with pitfalls at every step.

Since their first partnership on 2000’s “Memento," the work of Oscar-winning DP Wally Pfister has helped shape and define the trademark style of Christopher Nolan and his output. His influence has proved so pronounced that Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar” will mark an unclear break in DNA, it being “The Dark Knight” director’s first outing in 14 years without his usual collaborator.

Transcendence, Johnny Depp
Okay, here's an odd one. So, Justin Long was interviewed by Long Island News Day, in a piece published a few weeks ago. But it has picked up interest because the actor seemingly randomly name dropped/humblebragged about a major star popping up in Kevin Smith's forthcoming "Tusk." Either that or something went horribly awry in the transcription process.

After delivering excellent scores for both Bennett Miller's "Moneyball" and Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi" (he was Oscar nominated for the latter), we're going to be paying attention to whatever Mychael Danna does next, and we won't have to wait long. Next week, he's the man behind the music in Wally Pfister's "Transcendence," and a preview of his work is here.

10 Best Performances In Jim Jarmusch Movies
It all seems so obvious in retrospect. Of course, of all the parts Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston were born to play, a pair of lovelorn vampires battling the ennui of immortality in a Jim Jarmusch movie should always have been at the top of the list. “Only Lovers Left Alive,” which opens this weekend (review here), makes good on that logline and then some, delivering Jarmusch’s most deliriously enjoyable film in ages (see our complete retrospective of his films here), and showcasing as ever a cast that turn in terrific performances right down to the smallest supporting performer. But it’s Hiddleston and Swinton who carry the film, and they do so with such louche grace that they make their vampiric lifestyle seem dark and twisted and tortured and yet also so seductive and alluring and downright sexy, that at the potential cost of our eternal souls we’d proffer our own necks to them at the drop of a hat.

We’re less than two weeks away from the theatrical release of “Transcendence” and Warner Brothers has dropped seven new clips from the film, plus a TV spot, a poster, and a fifteen-second viral video. The clips give us a good glimpse of this impeccable cast which includes Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy. And if you’re still not 100% sure as to what this film is all about, hopefully these clips can help fill in the blanks.
