The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise might be on its fifth film but sailing the seven seas is as creepy as ever. The first teaser trailer for Dead Men Tell No Tales aired during AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, and it looks like another undead sea captain (this time Captain Salazar, played by Javier Bardem) is on the lookout for Captain Jack Sparrow.
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth, a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry, a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
Along with Depp and Bardem, the film stars Kaya Scodelario as Carina, and Brenton Thwaites as Henry, with Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, Stephen Graham as Scrum, David Wenham as Scarfield and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.
Dead Men Tell No Tales comes to theaters May 26, 2017.
