Look who caught Aquaman’s Trident!? Yes! The one and only, Captain Jack Sparrow!
Some days ago I saw the new poster for the upcoming “Aquaman” movie, and it gave me “Dead Men Tell No Tales” feelings…. So, today I present you, my new creation: The Captain Jack Sparrow version with the Aquaman’s Trident of Poseidon! Wouldn’t be a great movie if they meet?
I hope you like it! ‘cause I freaking love it! Ah, Did you see some zombie sharks around there?! (^_^)v xoxoxoxox
Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho!
Ps: Two months ago, in May, I created a “Johnny Depp: Infinite Characters” poster, based on the “Avengers – Infinite War” version. You can check ithere. Can’t wait for a new creation! xo
“And there’s another guy… Where is
he? The man of a thousand faces, the bright elusive butterfly of love, everybody say hello to JOHNNY
This is the third part of a compilation of all the funny times Johnny
hides himself, and Alice Cooper introduces him to the crowd, now from show N°19, in
June 20 in England, to Show N°24, in June 30 in Austria. Have fun!
Yesterday, July 9, was the 15th anniversary of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black
Pearl”, and the birth of an icon: Captain Jack Sparrow. But what if the role was given to another actor? Once Johnny was not the first choice, these were considered the first choices before him:
1) Robert De Niro: Turned down the role because he didn’t think the film would do
well in the box office as many other pirate movies in the past flopped.
Rik Mayall, 3) Christopher Walken and 4) Cary Elwes: Disney’s first choices if they chose to release the movie as direct-to-video. Later, Cary voiced Black Bart in the “At World’s End” video game.
5) Michael Keaton: Was considered, but claims had never turned down the role. He even said “I will unabashedly tell you I would’ve been very good in that role. That’s not bragging. It’s just fact.”
6) Hugh Jackman: The role was originally written especially for him, thus the name “Jack Sparrow”. However, he was not well known outside his native country, Australia.
7) Jim Carrey: Disney’s first choice to play Captain Jack Sparrow, but Jim passed the role in order to do “Bruce Almighy”. He also almost played Edward Scissorhands.
8)Matthew McConaughey: Other Disney’s choice, because of his resemblance to Burt
Lancaster, who had inspired that script’s interpretation of the character, and also for his performance in “Reign of Fire” movie.
And finally: Johnny Depp:
He was also considered to be a commercial risk
because Depp, although a respected actor, was hardly a bankable star at the
time. Fortunately, the gamble paid off when the movie became the
fourth-highest-grossing film of 2003.
Thank you, Johnny for creating this amazing character, and Gore Verbinski (director), Jerry Bruckheimer (producer) and Disney for choosing and accepting him!
Ps: The photos of the actors are from
2003, the same year of when the movie was filmed, and help us to kinda imagine how they would look like for the role.
“Well, well. Jack Sparrow, isn’t it?” “Captain Jack Sparrow, if you please,
15 years ago, today
(July 9), the first installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”
sailed to the theaters. The film’s world premiere was held at Disneyland Park
in Anaheim, California on June 28, 2003 and as usual, many of the film’s stars were in attendance. Two weeks later it was released in USA
and Canada. The film, inspired by and partly based on the Pirates of the
Caribbean attractions, first unveiled at Disneyland in 1967, effectively ended
the ‘Pirate movie curse’ that was believed to be in effect since the mid-1970s,
when movies failed to make a profit. Media expectations for Pirates of the
Caribbean were understandably low at first, but it became a world-wide artistic
and commercial success. It received generally positive reviews from critics and
was an unexpected success, grossing over $654 million worldwide, with many
considering it to be the best entry in the series.
> Synopsis: Pirates
of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is the thrilling high-seas
adventure with a mysterious twist that started it all. The roguish yet charming
Captain Jack Sparrow’s pirate life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain
Barbossa, steals his ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port
Royal, kidnapping the Governor’s beautiful daughter, Elizabeth. In a gallant
attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl, Elizabeth’s childhood
friend Will Turner joins forces with Jack. What Will doesn’t know is that a
cursed treasure has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live forever as the undead.
In Italia the title is “The Curse of
the First Moon”, without “Pirates of the Caribbean” at the
beginning. And in Germany the film’s title is “Curse of the
Johnny Depp improvised the catch phrase,
the film’s last lines “Bring me
that horizon” (which was conceived on the day the scene was filmed), and the
various “eunuch” lines and even his ambiguous accent (that’s meant to show he’s traveled the world) were also
improvised by him.
Johnny wore contact lenses, which served as sunglasses
and protected his eyes against sunlight (most scenes were filmed on location
under very strong sunshine). They did not change his eye color much, but if you
look closer in some scenes his eyes is darker than unusual.
Clothing and smears of charcoal were used to
conceal Johnny Depp’s numerous tattoos. The “Jack Sparrow” tattoo on
his arm in the movie were fake, but he got a real replica after finishing the
film, in honor of his son Jack.
Johnny wanted Jack Sparrow to have no nose
and be afraid of silly things like pepper and the common cold. Disney rejected the
idea, but accept the gold teeth idea. Johnny told his dentist to implant the gold
teeth as a bargaining tool. Sometimes he used to forget to remove after filming.
There is a small scab on Jack Sparrow’s chin
that gets bigger and bigger throughout the movie. The make-up artist and Johnny
Depp did it on purpose as a prank.
The characterization of Sparrow was inspired Pepé
Le Pew, a fictional character from the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie
Melodies, and also by close observation of his friend Keith Richards from
Rolling Stones, though he emphasized in interviews that it was not an
Johnny won the Screen Actors Guild Award for
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.
When production wrapped, many of the people
who worked on the film, including Johnny, picked props out from the treasure
cave to take home. According to Verbinski, not a single one of the cursed coins
was left behind.
Johnny Depp was really steering the ship in
the film. According to him, he wasn’t told beforehand
that he would actually be steering the ship, and was took by surprise.
* Actors who almost became the Captain
Jack Sparrow before Johnny Depp:
Hugh Jackman, Robert De Niro, Matthew McConaughey, Cary Elwes, Rik Mayall, Christopher Walken, Michael Keaton and even Jim Carrey.
The film was such a success, that Disney
closed their Pirates of the Caribbean attractions at Disneyland, California and
Walt Disney World, Florida to update them. They weren’t even thinking about a sequel or a franchise.
* As Jack Sparrow’s crew arrive at Isla de
Muerta, Cotton’s parrot says “Dead men tell no tales” which is the
name of the fifth installment released 14 years later.
There is some different versions of the
movie: – The “Collector’s Edition DVD”, has 19 deleted/extended scenes. – The Disney Channel Version was edited and removed a number of the most gruesome
images and expletives scenes. Some of the most notable differences include
removing close up shots of a moving skeleton arm, a close up of a fork stuck
into a pirate’s (fake) eye, and virtually all instances of the monkey in
skeleton form is also gone (including the post-credit bit). Captain Jack
Sparrow’s profanity has either been looped over or otherwise uses an
alternative take to remove the curse words. – The BBC Version was edited for violence, for
example when will Turner threw an axe in a pirates back the Impact and the
sound of the pirate screaming in agony is removed as well as the part where
will Turner removed the axe from the pirates back. All profanity is fully
intact in the BBC version. – In China it was denied a release due to references to ghosts, the supernatural,
and the afterlife.
