The new trailer for the 5th installment of the Pirates franchise premiered over the weekend

The official trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer premiered Sunday night during Fear of the Walking Dead on AMC. The trailer gave us our first glimpse of Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, and introduced us to Brenton Thwaites character whose ship is invaded by the creepy ghost pirates.

What we know so far

We know little about the fifth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise so far, but we do know that some familiar faces will be returning. Not only is Johnny Depp back to play our favorite pirate, but Orlando Bloom is back as well to reprise his role as Will Turner. Geoffrey Rush is also back as Captain Barbosa.

New to the cast is Javier Bardem, who plays the central antagonist of the film, Captain Salazar. Bardem is known for playing great villains including his epic role as Raoul Silva in the 2012 hit, Skyfall. Brenton Thwaites, of Maleficent and The Giver, will also have a role in the film.

In Dead Men Tell No Tales, Jack finds himself up against the terrifying Captain Salazar, who has just escaped from the Devil’s Triangle with a ship full of deadly ghost pirates. Sparrow’s only hope is to find the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which will give him total control of the seas.

Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer

Disney released the trailer Sunday night during the AMC hit, Fear of the Walking Dead. The trailer is pretty dark, introducing us to some seriously creepy ghost pirates. From what we’ve seen of Salazar so far, he’s scary and intense but also a bit eccentric. It appears as though the ghost pirates take on the form of how they looked in death, with many of them missing body parts. Watch the official trailer below.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

When we left Jack Sparrow in the 4th installment, released five years ago, he was on the hunt for the Fountain of Youth. We were introduced to a new cast and set of characters including Blackbeard, and his daughter Angelica played by Penelope Cruz. Jack regains the Black Pearl once more, but it’s still in shrunken form by the end of the film.

Will you go to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales when it comes out next summer – or have you had enough of the franchise?
