4/11/03: The final poster is out (at left)! And we have a hi-res wallpaper of it now, too!

THERE BE 229 SCREEN CAPS HERE! Update: Ahoy! The full trailer be here!

Additionally, I forgot to mention this during my extended-yet-unintended vacation:
Film.MSN.dk has three new shots (two Keira Knightley, one Johnny Depp) up as well. (Updated: they've added some more shots... just of ships, though.) Oh, and we have new POC wallpaper!

Arrrr! There be banners here!

Access Hollywood has the Depp
interview part of their POTC segment
(featured: Depp and Bloom) from last
week up, while
Orlando Multimedia
has four galleries of screencaps. Flip
through them quickly, and you'll sort
of see the fight choreography.

Job I want: Playing a Padmé handmaid in a Star Wars flick. Why? Because not one but two of Natalie Portman's handmaidens have now gone on to bigger and better things: Orlando Bloom movies. Seriously, though--of the two actresses in question, Rose Byrne and Keira Knightley, Knightley's the one who's a dead ringer for Portman. We wonder if this will present any problems later in Knightley's career (or Portman's, for that matter), should she hit the big time after this one.

Oh, and the title's been expanded to
"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," because Disney is afraid that people will confuse the movie with the theme park ride upon which it's based (can I get a big fat whatever on this one? "I'm sorry, ma'am, this is a movie theater. There are no rides here").

Moving on: let's kick off the page with a few of the images available so far.
