In this weirdly chilling teaser for the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, we get a glimpse of what is yet to come in the latest Dead Men Tell No Tales teaser. With an absence of one Captain Jack Sparrow and other notable characters from the past installments, we are introduced to one Captain Salazar played by the always captivating Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men, Skyfall).
While I wasn’t fond of the fourth film of the franchise by any means, I can confidently say I enjoyed the original three films and all the madness that came with it. This looks to be going back to what made the other three films so enticing to watch and why the world made these films billions of dollars.
In this film, Sparrow (Depp) and Capt. Salazar are in search of Poseidon’s trident to reign over the seven seas and I’m sure they will be on a wild goose chase in the process. Sparrow will likely have tricked Salazar like he does to every person he meets while Salazar appears to be another ink filled, cursed pirate of legend. That’s enough to sell me and we didn’t even see Capt. Jack Sparrow.
SCORE: “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me…”
