Pirates of the Caribbean Teaser Poster 02 Dec, 2002, 07:47 / 6 comments

Again, this isn't directly related to LucasArts, but you may find it interesting regardless. A really excellent teaser poster has been released for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film, which is based on the Disneyland ride of the same name.

As we've mentioned many times, this theme park ride served as the main inspiration for the Monkey Island series, so the film will hopefully convey the same kind of atmosphere found in those games. This would be reinforced by the poster, which shows an undead skeleton pirate manning the wheel of a pirate ship. Cool!

    I'm looking forward to this film, and the poster just increases my desire to see it.

    It really does have that cool MI2 vibe to it, doesn't it?

    Wow... this film should be so cool. And as it has Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp in it, the females should boost its revenue - a bit like with Leonardo DiCaprio and Titanic, on a smaller scale. That means if the pirate movie does well, other pirate movies will be made - and someone somewhere will say "hey! what about that Monkey Island thing!"

    Yeah, it's sweet. I hope a bigger version of it comes out soon so I can make it my computer's desktop wallpaper.
