The fifth installment of the Pirates and the Caribbean series is due to be released in theaters later this year. But thanks to ever increasing piracy in the entertainment industry, the Pirates and the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has already been made available on torrents.
It is an insanely popular American fantasy swashbuckler film based on pirates and stars Johny Depp in the lead playing Jack Sparrow. Dead Men Tell No Tales will be releasing this year, six years after the last film in the series On Stranger Tides was released in 2011.
Taking advantage of that popularity, a hacker group made the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 download links available on many of the torrent websites. The more disturbing fact is that the movie is available in a Blu-Ray quality that would hit the makers really hard both in terms of revenue and reach.
If you have been following the recent piracy activities in the entertainment industry, then you must have heard the name of The Dark Overlord. This hacker group is responsible for the leak of this movie and several others as well. The torrent links have since been taken down after FBI intervened.
The last time this hacker group came into light was when it leaked some of the episodes of Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black on torrent websites. The Dark Overlord asked for a ransom amount and when Netflix refused to pay, they uploaded all the episodes they could hack.
It was reported that not just Netflix, but movies and TV shows of several other studios were also compromised. The small production vendor that was hacked by the group to get all the unreleased content also worked with several major Hollywood studios besides Netflix.
The exact same thing happened with Disney, which was asked by the hacker group to pay a ransom amount in Bitcoins. Disney didn’t pay any amount and the group released the HD and Blu-Ray copy of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale on torrent sites. While the authorities are taking down the links from all the torrent websites, it seems that group is actively making more copies available on different websites.
We do not recommend downloading any illegal copy of the movie or any such copyright infringing content from the torrent websites. If you want to watch the movie, then you must go for the theaters or wait for the legal online copies of the movie being made available by the makers for home entertainment.
