Making a movie based on an amusement park ride doesn't necessarily seem like a recipe for success. But you can't argue with the results of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, which was spun off from the Disney parks ride of the same name. In addition to being one of the most successful franchises in movie history, the films helped turn Johnny Depp from a quirky character actor into one of the biggest superstars in the world.
A lot of that success has to do with the first movie, 2003's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl,' being really, really good. With Depp and director Gore Verbinski reuniting for 'The Lone Ranger,' we thought it was time to see what those 'Pirates' are up to now.
