EXCLUSIVE: Mushy Reinvades ILM for the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End’ DVD/Blu-ray Disc!

As the age of piracy comes to a close, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightly) must sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, and make their final alliances for one last decisive battle. Our heroes must face Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander), Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) and Admiral James Norrington (Jack Davenport) in a titanic showdown that could eliminate the freedom-loving pirates from the seven seas -- forever.

After this we were treated to a 10 minute featurette that is part of a longer featurette on the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Taken from the section Anatomy of a Scene: The Maelstrom viewers essentially get to see everything John Knoll revealed. However, it is presented very candidly as the events happened. Sure there are moments where you hear the usual Jerry Bruckheimer hyperbole, but it was really interesting seeing people like Gore Verbinski and John Knoll work together to pull off such an involved sequence. We also get to hear from the cast and crew about what Gore is like as a Director, how there were 2000 visual effects shots in the movie, and we also see Gore working at a computer console to point out and help fine tune the aforementioned visual shots. Apparently, this movie was up against a very tight schedule so there were "lots of sleepless nights and worrying." Closing out this small featurette was Bruckheimer talking about the seamless merging of practical and digital effects.
