Pirates Soundtrack – First Listen

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

As Andy seems to have started his personal countdown to the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End there is another first to report: the first listen to the score by Hans Zimmer for the third movie in the series. Once again Soundtrack.net scored this exclusive (just as last year) and provides us with a track by track description of the soundtrack-CD to be released on May 22nd in the US and around the same date also internationally (in Germany it will be on May 25th). What makes this so exclusive is the fact that there are excerpts available on the tracks to listen to as well!!

With 13 tracks directly from the movie (so no remixes, suites or techno-cover versions to skip here) the soundtrack-CD will clock in at a strong 56 minutes and promises (based on the report by Soundtrack.net and the short excerpts) a great listening experiences continuing the styles of the first two movies while at the same time introducing strong new themes … so check it out for yourself!

P.S.: if you want to help us pay the bills for this blog (as well as DLP.info and Clickmagique) why not pre-order the soundtrack-CD already on amazon.com, amazon.co.uk or amazon.de through these links?

$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.

“The only reason I would want Jack Sparrow returned from the realm of the dead is so I can send him back myself!”

Sao Feng Action Figure (and other Pirates Too)

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

saofengactionfigure.jpgSao Feng will be my favorite Pirates of the Caribbean character. I know, I haven’t seen the movie yet, but being a big Chow Yun Fat fan (from way back during his Hong Kong movies fame) I can’t help it. So while I try to follow all the stories around his character I was also anxiously awaiting any news for a Sao Feng action figure. It was obvious to me that he would be part of a “Pirates of the Caribbean; At Worlds Ends” Action figure series (together with Jack Sparrow and the rest of the cast). Now, during the Toy Fair in New York (I was lucky enough to have been able to visit this fair in the past) the new Pirates figure where being shown to dealers from around the world.
