Tag Archives: New Release
One of the things my kids like best about their mom being a blogger, is getting the newest Blu-ray releases before they are available to the general public. Last weekend, they had a movie night with the brand new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on Blu-ray Combo Pack.
You don’t have to wait any more either! Today is the day this new Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Film is available for purchase. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a rollicking new tale of the high seas, infused with all the elements of fantasy, humor and action that have resulted in an international phenomenon for the past 13 years.
Johnny Depp returns to his Academy Award®-nominated role as the outrageous, swashbuckling scoundrel Captain Jack Sparrow, and is joined by Oscar winners Javier Bardem and Geoffrey Rush.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”—the fifth film in the now-iconic “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise— sailed home on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ on September 19, and is sailing in today on 4K Ultra HD™/Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand.
Check out the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer Below.
Bonus material includes a collection of behind-the-scenes, making-of stories, including a conversation with directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg; a sit-down with the two young newcomers who play Henry and Carina; the secrets behind the menacing new villain, Salazar, and his ferocious ghost sharks; an on-set visit with Jack’s first mate from all five films; a chat with Sir Paul McCartney who appears as Uncle Jack; and a discussion about the franchise’s legacy; along with hilarious bloopers, deleted scenes and memories from producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s photo diary.
The rip-roaring adventure—packed with humor, suspense and jaw-dropping special effects—finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack.

If you ask my kids, they would say, one of the best perks about their mom being a blogger, is that we get new Blu-ray releases before they hit the store. My kids were out of their minds last week when they opened a package to discover, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inside. There was about one nanosecond before it was projected in our living room via our Epson projector. Absolutely no waiting for a family movie night, they had to watch it immediately. They loved it, they could not even tell me a favorite part because they said it was all cool! When I pressed them, they said they got a kick out of little baby Groot and a giant squid.
If you are excited to watch this movie, you are in luck, because Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out today on 4K UHD & Blu-ray! To celebrate I have some great Rocket and Groot bonus clips to share with you that show a behind the scenes glimpse of what it was like designing and creating the phenomenal digital characters of Rocket and Groot on set alongside the other actors.
