Walt Disney Studios finally released the first trailer for the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, which is titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. You can check out the new video in the player below. The sequel hits theaters in May 2017.
Interestingly enough, this trailer does not feature any of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. However, it does introduce the new chief villain, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). It also introduces a new young male hero, Henry (Brenton Thwaites), who may or may not be the son of Will Turner from the first three films.
The upcoming sequel arrives in theaters on May 26, 2017. It also stars 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. Here’s an officials synopsis for the movie:
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 (Javier Bardem), 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 (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), 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.
