Disney has announced that their latest swashbuckling adventure, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, will be released on 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on October 3.
For my fellow techies, this will be Disney’s second 4K Ultra HD release with Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 being released in the newer format in August.
There was no date given yet for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’s streaming release on Netflix.
Here is a quick rundown of the series plot (from Disney Movies Anywhere):
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure 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 (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
