Never trust Jack (Johnny Depp) to change his ways. The cunning, oftentimes drunk, pirate with a silver tongue has gotten into trouble more times than anyone can count. While it has been over five years since we last saw Jack try to obtain immortality, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales promises to be one of the best films of the franchise.
Disney has released a new trailer for the film, which teases more exciting pirate action than any of the previous marketing material we have seen. In it, we learn why Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) is a pirate-like phantom that is searching for Sparrow. We also get a better look at some of the new characters that will be seen and some of the old ones that will be returning. Check out the latest trailer and poster here below.
One of the things that stuck out the most about this trailer is that there is a tag that says “The Final Adventure… Begins.” Odds on that being true are pretty good considering that Depp isn’t getting any younger and his drunken pirate act is getting a bit old. Of course, since he is just personifying what is on the ride, playing a drunk pirate just comes with the territory. Still, there is plenty to like, so we won’t spoil you with the action-packed details, but hopefully the film can deliver. It needs to especially after the previous installment, On Stranger Tides, did not live up to expectations.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, and Geoffrey Rush. Directed by Kon-Tiki directors Joachim RÃ¸nning and Espen Sandberg, the film opens in theaters on May 26, 2017.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devilâ€™s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at seaâ€¦including him. Captain Jackâ€™s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
