Jack’s back! Well, you can’t keep a good bad pirate down, can you? Returning to the waves for the fifth instalment, the Disney franchise behemoth is back after a few years away. And it’s likely a return to the top of the box office for an embattled Johnny Depp, whose films have hardly been selling like hot cakes recently and who also needs to fund a rather costly divorce.
The black goo drooling bad guy in the trailer is Captain Salazar, played by Javier Bardem with as much relish as he brought to Bond bad guy Silva. Along with Depp, series regulars Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa and Kevin McNally are also returning and, from the looks of the trailer, so is the quality of special effects. In this tale, Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens May 26, 2017.
