The first trailer for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES has sailed in!

About a month ago, Nick and I were lucky enough to get a glimpse of the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie thanks to the Annual Disney Showcase. What we saw though was all behind the scenes stuff. But what about… well, the actual scenes themselves? Well, last night Disney officially debuted the first teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and you can check it out below!

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 (Bardem), 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.

 So no look at Johnny Depp’s iconic Captain Jack Sparrow yet, but we at least get to see what all the make-up effects and pre-viz green screen magic on Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar that we saw at the Disney Showcase now looks like completed. And damn, it looks cool! I especially like how his hair permanently looks like its underwater.

One thing to notice about the absence of Depp, is that the past movies had become increasingly reliant on his half-drunk antics to carry them. The result was that the Pirates franchise had started to become pretty stale. But I think with this new chapter boasting some new talent in the form of Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) taking the helm, this may just be the swift kick in the pants that it needs to find that magic of the first film again.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Brenton Thwaites, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally, Stephen Graham, Golshifteh Farahani, Kaya Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, Paul McCartney. It is scheduled for release on May 26, 2017.

  1. If dead men tells no tales how can there be a movie that tells their tale? Javier Bardem FTW

      It’s not told by dead men.

        Aha, but most of these characters, though fictional, lived during the time of the East India Company which was established during 1600 and went defunct 1874 making it improbable that anyone is alive meaning that they are all dead by now 😛

        *Unless one of them got a hold of the fountain of youth before it was demolished or stole the cursed treasure of Cortez which makes them immortal

          Well in that case, the same reasoning can be applied to ANY movie not set within the last 100 years.

          Because, ya know, A Knights Tale was so historically accurate.

            True, but this is the first movie that states dead men tell no tales

            In the title. I sure that in some movie, somewhere, that line was also uttered.

            Aaaaaaand, this is now getting silly.

    I actually enjoy this franchise and loved all the movies. Geez, Bru, “Stale”? Methinks not. A movie franchise that should have quit a long long long, very long time ago is Fast and Furious. Now that nonsense got stale after the first movie.

      I didn’t like the mermaid and boring white guy couple in the last one, felt like they needed to have that because it’s a Disney movie?

        Dude, the mermaid was hot for a fishy. Although you might get a fishwife out of that one.

            One might have to get used to a sardine smell around her the whole time. And keeping her out of my fishtank will be a nightmare. My cats might like her though…

      Well, except for the one line that Sparrow utters as the Kraken is about to devour him.
