Watch “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 – Official International Trailer #2 (2017) Keira Knightley Movie HD”

We’ve known for a while that Orlando Bloom would be returning for “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” but it wasn’t clear if Kiera Knightley would be making an appearance. Audiences last saw Bloom and Knightley playing Will and Elizabeth Turner at the end of the third film, “At World’s End,” when Will was cursed to become the captain of the Flying Dutchman.

It’s not surprising that both characters are making a return in the new film, as the story features their son. You can catch a brief glimpse of Knightley in the trailer below, and all will be revealed about her character’s appearance when the film hits theaters on May 26.

Avatar’ Sequels Get Official Release Dates, Beginning in December 2020

The news was announced on the movie’s official Facebook, along with a picture of director James Cameron and crew.

James Cameron and 20th Century Fox’s four Avatarsequels finally have official release dates.

They are: December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025. So far, Avatar has those dates to itself, although Star Wars saga films are becoming a staple at Christmas every other year.

The Avatar news was announced on the movie’s official Facebook page Saturday morning, along with a picture of Cameron and crew.

“Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels,” Cameron said in the post.

A year ago, Cameron first revealed there would be four Avatar sequels, instead of the previously planned three, at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of theaters. At the time, his goal was to release Avatar 2 over Christmas 2018, and then a new film in 2020, 2022 and 2023. 

Cameron said each of the four sequels will be able to stand alone, but will together create a saga. 

It became clear, however, that the schedule wouldn’t be met when Fox never officially dated the films.

The original 2009 film earned $2.8 billion worldwide and remains the top-grossing film of all time at the global box office.

RUMOR: Tron coaster may replace Tomorrowland Speedway at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary is coming up in 2021 and while Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios have already seen some updates, nothing major has been announced for the Magic Kingdom. Now, insiders are hinting that the Tron coaster, a popular attraction at Shanghai Disneyland, is also heading for Tomorrowland.

A previous rumor hinted that Disney would be closing the Tomorrowland Speedway, and it’s possible that the Tron coaster could take its place. If the potential coaster in Tomorrowland is similar to the one in Shanghai, it will feature motorbike-style seats and an outdoor area.

Other renovation rumors for Tomorrowland include a Wreck-it-Ralph attraction and an update to the Carousel of Progress. Disney is also currently looking to reboot the “Tron” movie franchise with Jared Leto, so this may be the perfect time to have the Tron coaster join Space Mountain as the resident thrill rides of Tomorrowland.

American Horror Story Returns to Halloween Horror Nights 27

You’ve been patiently waiting for the first house reveal of Halloween Horror Nights 27, and this one won’t disappoint. I’m excited to announce we’re bringing back FX’s American Horror Story for a second year.

This all-new house will feature brand new content from Season 2: Asylum, Season 3: Coven and Season 6: Roanoke. And to really blow it out, we’re using our largest floor plan—aka our uber-maze—to bring to life the three incredibly detailed seasons.

American Horror Story has some of the most intricate and intimidating characters I’ve ever seen. We’ve worked hard to once again bring this unique anthology to life, recreating the series with every turn of this maze.

In Asylum, travel through the decades of the notorious Briarcliff – evade Dr. Arden’s grotesque human “Rasper”experiments and come face to “face” with the serial killer, Bloody Face.

New Orleans aesthetics will surround, as you’re drawn into the wrath of descendants of the Salem witches and their unquenchable thirst for power in Coven.

And finally, relive the horrific story of the Millers in Roanoke – where you’ll be at the mercy of Piggy, the grisly Polk family and the ghosts of the blood moon.

With the help of series creator Ryan Murphy and 20th Century Fox, we’ve perfectly captured the environments, moments and scares American Horror Story entails.

Halloween Horror Nights 27 is going to be incredible and over the next several months you’re going to be hearing from three talented (and equally twisted) members of my Creative Development Team, Show Directors Patrick Braillard, Charles Gray, and Blake Braswell. They will be announcing everything from houses to scare zones to show slates.

Halloween Horror Nights 27 is shaping up to be one for the books, so stay tuned for more.

Rumors point to Magic Kingdom closing Speedway as part of Tomorrowland facelift

There’s plenty of evidence that Disney is looking to update Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom, but exact details on the remodel have been all but absent. 

As work at Animal Kingdom winds down and Hollywood Studios moves from planning into construction rumblings of what is in the works for Tomorrowland are ramping up.

The majority of the focus seems to be on the building that houses Stitch’s Great Escape, Auntie Gravity’s, Star Traders, and Cosmic Ray’s. While individual aspects of the building have been updated in a piecemeal approach, the building as a whole hasn’t seen a major update since Magic Kingdom opened in 1971.
Stitch is now on seasonal operations, only opening in the busiest times of the year, with only one of the two theaters in use during this past holiday season. Rumors had pointed to a Wreck-It Ralph VR experience coming to Stitch, but those rumors have died down in recent months with some, like Disney historian Jim Hill, theorizing that this could mean different plans are in the works. 

Now we have rumors ramping up that Disney is looking to close the Tomorrowland Speedway. The speedways at both the Tokyo and Hong Kong resorts have closed in recent years while the new Shanghai Disneyland opened without any type of speedway attraction. 

Here in Orlando, the speedway is constantly ranked as one of the least popular attractions in Tomorrowland. With slow moving, dated, gas guzzling go-karts the speedway takes up nearly as much land as the rest of Tomorrowland combined. In a park where crowd levels are at all-time highs, and land is a premium, a smelly, dated attraction with minimal reviews is an obvious place to look for new expansion. 

Multiple industry insiders have confirmed that major new experiences are coming to Magic Kingdom. This is one of the only Disneyland-style parks without a large theater in it. Other rumors point to Cosmic Ray’s being moved there or another dining option opening. 

On a recent episode of The E-Ticket Report, a theme park news and rumor podcast, industry insider Tim Grassey mentioned that the Tomorrowland update could mean a major overhaul the building which houses Stitch, possibly even expanding the sidewalk that currently is rather narrow in this Tomorrowland entrance pathway. With the speedway now in the mix, it would be easy for Disney to shift many of the uses including the retail, restrooms, and food.

We should know something by 2021, the 50th Anniversary of Magic Kingdom, but if the scale of the update that some indicate is true this new Tomorrowland won’t likely open until at least the mid-2020s. This is Disney after all.
