Like the ocean it takes place on, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has had plenty of ups and downs. These metaphorical seas have been so rough, in fact, that some people don't even remember there was a fourth film in 2011, On Stranger Tides, even though it grossed a billion dollars worldwide. I'm happy to say the fifth film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is probably the best film in the franchise since the very first movie... even though that's not a particularly high bar.


Thanks to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we can all see the future. We may not know how the adventures of Newt Scamander will turn out, but thanks to the Harry Potter films and books, we know what happens to many of the famous characters seen or mentioned in the prequel. Connecting the dots between these two time periods can be tough, but it's part of the fun, and we're here to help.


David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter film series — including upcoming spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — has a new fantasy franchise in his sights. Warner Bros. has just secured the rights to all things Willy Wonka from Roald Dahl's estate, and is teaming with Heyman to make a prequel about the character.


When Australia elevates itself onto the world stage these days, it's rarely for something we can all be proud of. Last week saw Senator Barnaby Joyce threaten to euthanise Johnny Depp's dogs after the star bypassed the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service to bring them in. John Oliver's got wind of it, and is using the platform of Last Week Tonight on HBO to skewer the whole country.


It seems Johnny Depp won't be enjoying his new movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" like most audiences on May 20th. Like a very small portion of the population, he simply can't see 3D movie effects.


For the rich and unfamous, the best way to hang with celebrities is to buy them. That's why Hampton Black (original name we're sure) makes life-sized sculptures, by request, of your favorite movie characters. Running from $6,500 to $8,500 and taking up to a month to complete, most of the work goes into the elaborate costuming, not the composite polyester resin, fiberglass and foam bodies.
