Johnny Depp and Sean Connery

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Johnny Depp takes on Sean Connery in the warm projector bulb glow of The Foxlight.

Depp says making Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was just like your mom always said: "Be careful or you could put someone's eye out." He learned a some fencing in an earlier film but the swashbuckling sword fights were a little different. He says a team of experts was on the set, but there was a real chance someone could lose a finger or an eye.

Pirates has been open since Wednesday and should be No. 1 this weekend, most critics agree. But a few critics think it's too violent for little kids and not hip enough for adults. And no, it's not rated "RRRRRRR." It's PG-13.

The other newcomer this weekend is the league of urban development? League of extra large gentlemen? No, it's the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. That's a confusing mouthful, and even with Connery at the helm, it's getting mixed reviews. I'm a 72-year-old action figure? Connery also helped edit the film after a falling out with the director. I'm a 72-year-old editor? Anyway, Box Office Guru predicts it will make a less than extraordinary $22 million this weekend.

And that's the always extraordinary look at the flicks, flacks and big screen attacks we unspool every week in the harsh glare of The Foxlight.
