55 million Dollars

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Johnny Depp will be the next actor that can call himself the best paid one. To come back and reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow he will get a check for 55 Million dollars. Not a bad paycheck, isn’t it? I didn’t think so. But I do think that it is to much. Who needs 55 million to play one role? Nobody, not even the best Jack Sparrow in the world!

With so many actors strugeling in the industry I would love to see one top actor to be a little more humain and strike another kind of contract deal. How about signing a 55 million contract for a role where you keep 1 million and have it stated in the contract that the other 54 million will be equally divided between all the extras, technicians and other lower paid people on the set. Nobody who is already rich needs another 55 million added to his or her account, but all the other people would welcome that little extra to get some bills paid.

55 Million dollars for one movie, for any movie, for any role… way to much. But that is just my 2 cents.

Jack Sparrow’s Life at Disneyland

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

As Disney fans we only (mostly) see the magic, as Disney Geeks we want to know how everything works, As a Disney employee you can get the real story. Those stories can make some interesting articles with some nice stuff, weird surprises and (unfortunately) sometimes bad stories too. One of those stories was pointed out to us by an associate editor of Lamag.com.

If you’re a Disney (Theme Park) fan and love anything Pirates, especially Jack Sparrow, you wil have fun reading the article. Some guest might even recognize themselves (and to the girls and woman out there, if you do, that isn’t a good thing this time :-) )…

The Pirates of the Caribbean Pocket Model Game

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

piratesgamewizkids.jpgToday WizKids announces that they signed a deal with Disney to create a “Pirates of the Caribbean” PocketModel Game. I love the games of Wizkids and have been playing their Marvel HeroClix, DC Heroclix and HorrorClix games since the beginning. (For those knowing the game; I own both the Galactus and the Phoenix figures.)

The also created the game Pirates; a game where players can battle it out using construct 3-D pirate ships from pieces punched out of a styrene card. (WizKids) This however is a game I haven’t played yet, although it did look intriguing.

Transformers vs. Pirates

Monday, July 9th, 2007

taiwanesetransformerposter.jpgThe Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End did a great job at the box office but there is a movie out there trying to do it better and is looking at breaking the record. Pirates III did about $114 million in its opening weekend, but with a count on 3 ½ days and a $100 million counts the battle is on; Transformers looks like it will get into a fight with the pirates to do better, but will they succeed?

While I did love the Pirates III movie and gave it a great review, I never thought I would be doing the same for Transformers. I thought we would get another big budget movie where the effects are everything and the story and acting will be secondary, I was well surprised when I left the cinema. Sure, both pirates and Transformers is filled with the big budget special effect used in so many movies that try to make the big bucks with the cinema goers, but while Pirates proofed character development and story can be part of such a movie, I never thought I would see this in the Transformers movie.

$1500 for a Pirates Premiere Ticket (Make-a-Wish)

Saturday, April 21st, 2007

make-a-wish-logo1.jpg… but let me start by saying that the money will go to “Make-a-Wish” foundation. (A Foundation that fulfills dreams for children who are battling a very severe illness, a organization I have supported myself in the past)

If you want to see the “Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End” premiere together with the red carpet event and even do some Disney rides on May 15 then you should get some tickets for the world premiere in Disneyland. The tickets are highly priced at $1500 and will be a dream to far away for some (like me), but as this is for a good cause isn’t really that bad of news.

Disney hopes to get $3.000.000, which I don’t think will be a problems as I predict tickets to sell out fast. For more info and to order tickets visit the official Disney Pirates site.

Over the past 25 years, Disney has continued to support the Make-A-Wish cause, contributing more than $10 million in cash and in-kind donations on an annual basis. With more than 6,000 wishes granted each year including visits to the Disney Parks, Disney Cruises, meeting Disney Characters and visiting TV and movie sets, including “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, Disney-themed wishes continue to be the most popular requests.

Disneyland Resort Paris New Years Trip: Highlights Day 2 – New Years Eve

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

dlrp-ny-day2-cheyenne.jpgToday was the day of the big celebration, the last day of the year 2006. After a good night sleep and a late wake up call we headed for our Cheyenne Breakfast. Now here is a change for the worst. Not that the breakfast was ever anything special but this was far below any standard. Especially the ham, which was given by a Cast Member to the guests, has been turned in a strange event. 1 Piece was cut in four and if you where lucky you got half of that. We never expect much from a breakfast while staying at Cheyenne, but this was just bad. Now this will not spoil our time at Disneyland Resort Paris and as I promised to give the highlights… here they are…

New pictures of “Pirates of the Caribbean: at Worlds End” has found its way on the internet showing the “look” of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in this installment of the (first?) trilogy.
