It’s Thursday again, and we all know what that means – it’s movie day!

There are a few interesting additions to cinemas this week, here is a run down of what you go see tonight:

If you thought three was it then you are mistaken, the new Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is out today in 3D or 2D versions.

There is no doubting that Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow is the star of the show, and even without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly it is still set to be a box office success. Joining the cast is Penelope Cruz who plays Jack’s love interest, and Geoffrey Rush is back as Captain Barbossa.

With more high sea adventure and a little bit of comedy, let’s just hope the latest in the Disney franchise lives up to our expectations.

Main Street

Orlando Bloom might be missing from Pirates of the Caribbean 4, but you can catch him in Main Street with Colin Firth.

The plot goes a little something like this…a stranger arrives in a North Carolina city with a “controversial plan to save their decaying hometown.”
