“It’s a pirate’s life” Captain Jack Sparrow proclaims in a moderately rum-drunken state upon his return. And what a glorious return it is. Disney has graciously unveiled a new trailer for the fifth installment in the swashbuckling franchise. The short of it? It looks pretty incredible. Check it out below.
A new poster for the film has also emerged online (via Erik Davis on Twitter), with a tagline that borrows from the movie’s subtitle: “Dead Men Tale No Tales.”
So Will Turner’s back, Captain Salazar has Javier Bardem looking creepier than ever, and said Captain is on the hunt for Jack (probably dead or alive… or a strange combination of both). From the looks of things, they either want have to search for long or his return is only brief so that he may go into hiding. Whatever the case may be, we certainly can’t wait to see how it unfolds on the big screen.
The franchises’ next chapter is a highly-anticipated one, as it’s been six years since the release of On Stranger Tides. The last time we caught sight of Captain Jack, he and Mr. Gibbs were setting out to find a way of returning their beloved Black Pearl to its normal size. Now the tides have turned, pun intended, and he’s on the search for the key to survival. According to the film’s official synopsis, which can be read below, it won’t be an easy task. Because Captain Jack Sparrow can never get a break.
“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 pitifull 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 never faced.”
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens in theaters on Memorial Day, which falls on Monday, May 26.
