Much care and consideration has gone into the production of this merchandise.

The following merchandise for PotC: OST has landed on my desk. It’s a stickerbook:

It came with the information that “Officer Gilette” (sic) had also made it into the book. And indeed:

Great news! Lt. Gillette on the lid would give my laptop at work a little more credibility than the “I can haz brainz?” zombie sticker that it’s currently sporting, though one could argue that it’s perfectly fitting for our meetings.

Obviously, much care and consideration has gone into the production of this merchandise:

I guess the stickerbook was put together by the same professionals responsible for this masterpiece:

Anyway. If you’d like to buy this spectacular piece of movie memorabilia, you can do so here. Or you’ll just wait for our traditional Yuletide Contest and hope that you’ll win this beauty, among other lovely things.

How Gillette almost escaped to Mexico…

Greg Ellis, aka Lt. Groves in the PotC movies, has given an interview to Jim Hill, which is now available online. He talks about his work on “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” with Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally and Damian O’Hare, and ponders the possibility of Groves’ return in PotC 5 (working title: “Pirates of the Caribbean: Zombies in Uniform”). You can find the interview here:

GREG ELLIS WONDERS IF HIS “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN” CHARACTER WILL BE RETURNING FOR THE FIFTH FILM IN THIS SERIES

Here’s a small excerpt from the interview:

“And at one point, there was a semi-serious discussion among the actors that we should just keep going. Just sail on in to Mexico and then see how the locals would react as all these pirates and Royal Naval Officers came up on shore.”

I can’t help but feel that an escape of Gillette and Groves to Mexico would have made for a far better movie.

49 screencaps of Damian O’Hare as Lt. Gillette in “Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides”. As Gillette spends most of his limited time in the company of Groves, fans of Greg Ellis will hopefully also find a couple of caps to like.

As always, please feel free to use the caps, credit isn’t necessary, just please don’t hotlink. Cheers!

Greg Ellis played Lt. Groves in all “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. Damian O’Hare is mentioned, and as they worked side by side, this interview gives us a little insight into the work “behind the scenes”.

“We’re boys, and we’re in a pirate movie. What’s not to love? “

Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Lt. Gillette (Damian O'Hare), Lt. Groves (Greg Ellis) and Mr. Gibbs (Kevin McNally)

 

Two tips for watching “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”

Posted in potc 4 with tags , , , , , on 18 May, 2011 by ambarussa
  • If you watch the movie in 3D, absolutely try to get seats in the middle of the cinema. The glasses make a dark movie even darker; there were scenes where I had to take them off to see anything at all.
  • Don’t throw pointed objects at the screen. You could hurt a member of the audience.

Warning: spoilers in the comments!
