Get ready for the return of Captain Jack. Disney has dropped a new, full-length trailer and poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, giving viewers a peek at the return of swashbuckling hero Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp) and its new villain, Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem).
The fifth installment of the popular Disney franchise features a flashback sequence of a much younger Jack Sparrow committing the deed that leads to the events in the film. The trailer gives a basic idea of the plot and why Captain Salazar is hunting Jack.
The new trailer showcases plenty of new footage from the film, including an entire band of ghost sailors, and, yes, ghost sharks, created by lead VFX house MPC, assisted by Atomic Fiction, Lola, Mr. X, and more. Check it out in the player below:
Co-directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is written by Jeff Nathanson, who helped develop the story alongside Terry Rossio. The film, which promises to be “the final adventure” in the franchise, is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and executive produced by Joseph M. Caracciolo Jr. and Chad Oman.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck 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.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sails into theaters on May 26.
