‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ Charts Course for 4K Release
Catch the updated version of this classic in your home theater, now with the 4K treatment
Get ready to join the hunt for gold and glory! Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is making its return and this time on a 4K Ultra HD release. The release will be made available on January 2 and will include astounding HDR picture quality and immersive Dolby Atmos audio so you can feel like you’re sailing on Captain Barbossa’s ship with his crew of lost souls.
The original film centers around swashbuckler, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) who has had his beloved ship, The Black Pearl, stolen from under his feet by his arch-nemesis, the mysterious and secretive Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush).
Captain Barbossa uses the might of the Black Pearl to attack the seaside town of Port Royal and kidnaps the governor’s daughter, Elizabeth (Kiera Knightly). In an act of love and courage (with a sprinkle of stupidity), Elizabeth’s childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) joins ranks with Jack Sparrow and sets out to save Elizabeth… or so he thinks.
What Jack hasn’t shared with Will is that a cursed treasure has fated Barbossa and his rag-tag crew to live forever as the undead. Watch the seemingly doomed duo’s adventure to see if Will can save his friend and if Jack can save his ship, or if the two will end up walking the plank to join the undead crew members in their forever journey.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl first sailed into theaters in 2003 and would be the first in what is currently a five-film franchise including: Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, On Stranger Tides, and Dead Men Tell No Tales. Although many of the original cast members have ebbed and flowed in their appearances in the movies following The Black Pearl, Depp has remained steadfast to his role as the shifty pirate Jack Sparrow by appearing in all of them.
Fans of the film were drawn to the theater for the big names and the action and The Curse of the Black Pearl certainly delivered on both. The adventure movie runs at 143 minutes and has a U.S. rating of PG-13.
If you’re ok with a late gift, or don’t mind giving a loved one a placeholder until it’s released, the 4K revamp is perfect to land a spot on your holiday wish list or wrapped up for the pirate lover in your life. While there are currently no announcements for any of the other films in the series to get the full 4K Ultra HD makeover, we can only hope that those will be coming soon.
