A new trailer for Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is distinctly in the spirit of the best of the first four films in the franchise. This one begins with a focus on the backstory of the Spanish captain (played by Javier Bardem) whose mission it is to eliminate Pirates, including one in particular – Captain Jack Sparrow.
And, of yeah, ghost sharks:
I’m fascinated with the ‘Disney’ logo with the Pirate castle.
Also, that digitally de-aged Johnny Depp is pretty impressive.
Looks right out of “21 Jump Street” pirate version.
Otherwise, let’s hope that all the good parts of the movie aren’t in the trailer. If it continues to capture the spirit of the previous four movies, and it looks like it has, there should be good things ahead at the box office.
About 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.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” 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.
Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg are directing “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Joe Caracciolo, Jr. and Brigham Taylor. Jeff Nathanson wrote the screenplay.
