In Theaters Tomorrow...

There is actually only one film coming out this Friday and that is BUG. The reason only one film comes out tomorrow is PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLDS END is dropping today. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are wrapping up their swashbuckling trilogy. (though Depp said he is willing to do a PIRATES 4) BUG is a film that blurs the line between paranoia and a harsh freaky/ scary reality… and proves that Ashley Judd is still making films.

I’ll start off with BUG because I’m sure it’s the one that you know less about. This film has a cast of five and was originally a stage play. Judd plays a waitress who is hiding out from her recently paroled abusive husband played by Harry Connick Jr. Judd hooks up with a war vet with some reality issues in the dingy motel that they now call home. I still can’t tell if the bugs are a reality, an illusion or somehow connected to aliens. All I know is that William Friedkin is the director and that man brought us THE EXORCIST and THE FRENCH CONNECTION. Wicked.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLDS END begins with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann hooking up with Captain Barbossa, the bad guy from the first film, to go save captain Jack from Davy Jones’ locker. At the same time Lord Beckett has formed an alliance with the East India Tea Company to rid the seas of pirates and form an early monopoly. Somewhere in there with sea monsters they managed some truth - The Company transformed from a commercial trading venture to one that virtually ruled India as it acquired auxiliary governmental and military functions, until its dissolution in 1858. I have a feeling that the climax of this film will be great Cap’n Jack and company gather the best pirates from all over the globe to fight the tea hoarders. Geoffrey Rush is back as Barbossa, Chow-Yun Fat plays a notorious pirate and Keith Richards plays Jack Sparrow’s father. I guarantee Depp and Richards consumed copious amounts of rum to “get into character.”

P.S. If given the opportunity I would totally clean Keira Knightley using only my tongue. And she would be tasty

Box office should look like this #1 PIRATES #2 SHREK #3 SPIDEY #4 28 WEEKS LATER #5 BUG
