FROM Walt Disney Home Entertainment and producer Jerry Bruckheimer come the thrilling action-adventure hits Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl and Dead Man’s Chest, available for the first time in high-definition on 75GB Blu-ray 2-disc sets.
Pioneering and inventive high-definition bonus features plus a playfully mischievous animated Jolly Roger host make this the definitive interactive Blu-ray experience!
The Curse Of The Black Pearl
A cursed platoon of pirates haunt the Caribbean in search of gold (and their souls) – can they be stopped by roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and his unwilling cohort Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), helped by Will’s paramour Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley)?
Extras: Scoundrels of the Sea
You are in the director’s chair guiding this interactive in-movie feature, which allows you to build your own custom pirate documentary that you “bank” until ready for viewing.
Is it folklore and myth you seek, or perhaps walking the plank? It’s all here! These are automatically edited into a true one-of-a-kind experience – your personal special on the golden age of piracy, complete with visuals, music and voice-over narration.
An additional Blu-ray Disc features a treasure chest full of exciting original DVD bonus features including deleted scenes, gag reel, audio commentary with Johnny Depp, a “making-of” featurette, additional filmmaker actor commentary and more.
Dead Man’s Chest
As Will and Elizabeth prepare to exchange vows at the altar, their wedding plans hit rough waters with the arrival of sea-bound scallywag Jack Sparrow. The Captain has found he has a debt to pay: he made a bargain for his soul with Davy Jones himself, the ghostly, fearsome ruler of the ocean depths, and he needs all the help he can get to escape this time!
Extras: Liar’s Dice Game
Inspired by the famous scene between Will Turner, Bootstrap Bill and Davy Jones, it’s your turn to challenge the pirates in a dice game and try to save your soul. Shot with original characters from the film, you the viewer get to face your adversary! Put on your best poker face, roll the dice, place your bid and challenge pirates to see who will be freed, and who will remain forever in servitude to Davy Jones.
An additional Blu-ray Disc features an amazing treasure trove of bonus features including a behind-the-scenes documentary; a Captain Jack featurette; a sword fighting featurette; “Creating The Kraken” on the film’s stunning sea beast; and star-studded, red-carpet Hollywood premiere footage.
About Blu Ray
You’ll feel like you’re really there, thanks to Blu-ray High Definition. This cinematic breakthrough will deliver a truly unique viewing experience in crystal-clear resolution and unparalleled uncompressed audio.
For the first time ever on Blu-ray Disc, a computer animated host has been created to guide you through your pirate adventure, beginning with the devilish Jolly Roger host, a “living” talking skull and crossbones so realistic you just might want to jump ship. While staring you down with cold, empty eye sockets, the Jolly Roger steers you through your Blu-ray Disc experience and into the world of Walt Disney Pictures’ Pirates of the Caribbean!
