Rumored to have both witches and ghosts, Walt Disney Studios has just released the teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which will sail into theaters Ma7 26, 2017.
This time, Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow will battle the supernatural. The sequel’s title, “Dead Men Tell No Tales”, is an uber cool reference to the rides at Walt Disneyworld and Disney Land!
Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, 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.
The teaser trailer gives us our first look at Javier Bardem as the aforementioned Captain Salazar, while Geoffrey Rush is confirmed to return as Barbossa.
Hopefully it brings the franchise back to its roots with Gore Verbinski’s absolutely astounding 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg direct this time around with Kaya Scodelario and Orlando Bloom also starring alongside Depp.
The Pirates movies have made $3.7 billion at the global box office.
