Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem discuss the success of the ‘Pirates’ franchise
Geoffrey Rush sends gold coins taken from the set of 'Pirates of the Caribbean' to his fans.
The 65-year-old has starred as Captain Hector Barbossa in Disney's franchise in all five films - although he only briefly appeared in the second instalment - and admits he has kept his character's sword from the first movie 'The Curse of the Black Pearl' as well as a host of other mementos, some of which he shares with friends.
The opening scene of the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" is a fitting metaphor for where we stand in this long franchise: A creaky old galleon is unceremoniously yanked up from the ocean depths and the only things aboard are cranky old ghosts.
A weary, battered fifth chapter — "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" — lumbers into theaters this summer high on CGI tricks but with a hopelessly muddled plot and recurring characters basically running on fumes.
