The Buffalo News (via Access Niagara) reports that the Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End crew filmed footage for the third installment at Niagara Falls a couple of weeks ago:

While local and national news cameras have focused on Buffalo-area storm damage this week, a Hollywood film crew has its lenses trained on the brink of the Horseshoe Falls.

Walt Disney Studios is shooting falls-related scenes for use in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," the third installment in the wildly successful series of swashbuckling films, scheduled for release in May.

Stars Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are nowhere in sight; instead, the thundering water of the falls is playing the lead role.

The studio is keeping mum on exactly how the footage of the world-famous waterfall will be used, but there is speculation that moviegoers will see Captain Jack Sparrow and his shipmates facing oblivion courtesy of the giant cataract. As was the case with "Bruce Almighty," where studio-shot Jim Carrey scenes were superimposed on actual Horseshoe Falls footage, Disney will use shots of the treacherous waters as background for scenes filmed in Hollywood.

"At Worlds End" hits theaters on May 25.

*Spoilers*


No doubt this is the big waterfall that Barbossa, Will, Elizabeth, and everyone else sail off of to find Jack at worlds end. Interesting.

'cause they know that people will want to see the trailer, so if they put it on the movie, they're gonna make a lota money!
