Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End Trailer

Released last week, this is the theatrical trailer for the third and final "Pirates of the Caribbean" film, "At World's End." This movie looks packed, with plenty of swordplay and even a ship battle within a whirlpool.

"Dead Man's Chest" got a lot of criticism for having a convoluted plot and making just about all of the characters unlikeable by the end. When I first saw it I was floored, but having seen it a few times on DVD, it does have its flaws. The entire cannibal island sequence is an unnecessary diversion and nothing is really accomplished by the movie's end. Besides Jack Sparrow "dying" of course.

In the trailer we see that Davy Jones and the crew of The Flying Dutchman is now under the command of the East India Trading Company and the pirate lords from the four corners of the Earth have united. Works for me as far as plot goes. As long as the film isn't needlessly complicated like the last one, people are going to eat this up.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" opens on May 25.
