Keira Knightley returns to Pirates of the Caribbean after 10-year break




Keira Knightley will reprise her role as Elizabeth Swann in the new Pirates of the Caribbean film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, after a decade away from the franchise.

The British actor, 32, appears in a Japanese-narrated trailer for its fifth instalment, which also stars Johnny Depp as the eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow and Orlando Bloom as Elizabeth’s husband, Will Turner. The film follows their quest for the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which they need to defeat Sparrow’s rival Captain Armando Salazar, played by Javier Bardem.

The two leading actors had both announced they would appear in the upcoming film, but Knightley had not revealed whether she planned to reprise her role as the spirited Swann. Her fleeting cameo in the trailer was the first confirmation of her involvement in the film, which is set for release in May.

Knightley has not appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise since 2007, when she starred in its third instalment, At World’s End . Both she and Bloom chose not to appear in the fourth film, On Stranger Tides , in 2011.

In an interview with Digital Spy in 2014, Knightley ruled out a return. “It was an amazing point in my life, but it was a good five-year chunk. I can’t really imagine going back to it,” she said.

The actress took a two-year break from films following the birth of her daughter, Edie, with Klaxons lead singer James Righton, in 2015, reports Newsweek.

She has several projects lined up this year, including starring in World War II drama The Aftermath, alongside Alexander Skarsgård, and playing the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

Khloe, Kbrule disqualified from BBNaija



Khloe and Kbrule, housemates in the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality TV show, have been disqualified from the show.

This makes them the first set of people to leave the show.

Both were disqualified after they got three warning strikes.

Khloe got her second warning strike on Sunday for using “strong abusive curse words”. This affected Kbrule, who is her strategic partner.

Kbrule then got his third warning strike for using “strong threatening words and attempting to physically harm a fellow housemate”.

Dee One also got his first warning strike for his insensitive jokes. This, by extension, affected Vandora who is his strategic partner.

The first eviction show is supposed to hold on Sunday evening.

18 housemates have been put up for eviction except KSquared, who have now been disqualified, and LeoLex.

Big Brother had told housemates that almost all of them had been nominated for possible eviction because of their repeated failure to adhere to the rules of the house.

Since the housemates are in pairs, two of them may possibly be evicted at the weekend during the live show.
