Today is the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and as our community event for the week we’re going to see it. Check out these posters from all the Santiago subway stations:

Davy Jones on Pirates 3 poster Chow Yun-Fat on Pirates 3 poster

Note the title in Spanish: Piratas del Caribe: En el Fin del Mundo. There are easily several dozen advertisements throughout the subway system. Makes you realize how expensive a publicity campaign can be to promote a major film release. On a side note, the director’s name, Gore Verbinski, is on my list of best names ever, alongside Rip Torn.
