9 - Pirates of the Caribbean-Dead Men Tell No Tales

9. "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" - Johnny Depp returned as Jack Sparrow in this funny, yet slightly poignant fifth entry in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" film franchise.

10. "Logan" - Hugh Jackman and director James Manigold reunited for this haunting adaptation of the 2008 Marvel Comics tale, "Old Man Logan". Patrick Stewart co-stars as Charles Xavier aka "Professor X".
