Starlog Archives: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
What a difference a decade makes! Ten years ago, audiences were eagerly anticipating the second installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Three years earlier, the first movie was a pleasant surprise and Johnny Depp was a revelation. Audiences couldn’t get enough of his eccentric performance as Captain Jack Sparrow. Three disappointing sequels later, the Pirates series has carried on longer than it should have and Depp has squandered his box office appeal. The July 2006 issue of Starlog devoted a cover story to the second Pirates movie back when people really cared about such things.
