This coming Memorial Day weekend will see the return of everyone’s favorite drunk pirate, Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The film is the fifth installment of Disney’s successful franchise, and although it has been six years since a Pirates film has been released, its popularity has never waned. Trailers have shown why a vengeful Spanish captain (Javier Bardem) is hunting Jack Sparrow.
Now the studio has released a new trailer that should help generate some interest for those who are still on the fence about the film. Check it out here below.
This is a short trailer, running at approximately 60 seconds. While the trailer does use a lot of old footage, we learn a little bit more about Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), who is “a woman of science” and refuses to believe in the idea of ghosts. And being a woman of intellect, she questions “are all pirates this stupid?”
Other than that, there isn’t much to look at, but it does look better than its predecessor, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg from a script by Jeff Nathanson, the film also stars Kevin McNally, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites, and Orlando Bloom.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’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.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is in theaters May 26, 2017.
