Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – first look behind the scenes

The fifth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series is due out in theaters in May of this year just in time for Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to a brand new featurette, we have our first look at some behind the scenes footage as well as interviews with the film’s starts and directors.

It certainly has one of the scariest bad guys the series has ever seen. Javier Bardem is terrifying is Captain Salazar. We’re also getting the first confirmation of who Brenton Thwaites is playing…. yes, it’s the third generation of Turner men – Henry Turner.

Thwaites says “This film is exciting. There’s something huge happening everyday so it has an energy and a force behind it that I’ve never really experienced before.”

I wonder if Henry Turner will be able to redeem his father Will Turner (played by Orlando Bloom).

About the film:

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 and 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. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” drops anchor in U.S. theaters on May 26, 2017.
