Question: Can anyone tell me exactly how much the American remake follows the original Japanese film? I have seen all of the Japanese movies, but only a bit of the American remake, and for some reason, I am having trouble finding it at local video stores.
Question: In the flashback that shows Josie at her house before prom, how could Billy have called her right before his limo appeared in front of her house? The year would have had to be 1990 or 1991, when Josie was a senior (or earlier, if she was younger but senior Billy asked her to prom). Were cell phones common during that time?
Question: I heard the reason this movie is so popular and gets shown on TV a lot is that due to a copyright error it is free for TV stations to show. Is this true?
Question: In the scene where Jack, Barbossa, Elizabeth meets with Beckett, Davy Jones, and Will on the little island. Beckett tells Jack that he honored their deal to bring him to the Brethren court and lure the pirates out, but then why does Beckett then hand Jack over to Davy Jones? wasn't the deal that he would keep Jack safe from Jones if Jack led him to Pirate's Cove? He even says "come collect your reward." was he just being sarcastic?
Question: Near the end of the film, what was the "zombie" who was on the roof trying to do? was he trying to get out? Make a bigger hole for others to come in? I didn't get this part.
Question: I would have sworn the first time this episode aired, the group of alleged murderers (Ramseys, Condit, and Simpson) were chanting (or mentioned) the "Got Away With It Club" in the restaurant. I just saw a rerun and this time, Condit was saying something nonsensical while the rest chanted "one of us". Was it changed, or was it just my imagination?Rlvlk
Question: In the scene with Cutler Beckett, Davy Jones, and Will Turner, when they are discussing the brethren court and the first meeting, Davy Jones speaks to Beckett like he was there. Does this mean that Beckett was a former pirate and is this what Jack Sparrow meant by leaving his mark on Beckett?
Question: How did they manage to film the deserted New York city scenes? Was it a mixture of studio/CGI work?
