It’s been five years since we last saw Johnny Depp‘s Captain Jack Sparrow sail on high seas in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. But Captain Jack hasn’t lost his talent for making deadly enemies, as we learn in the first teaser trailer for the fifth film in the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
During the season finale of Fear the Walking Dead, Disney unleashed the first teaser for Dead Men Tell No Tales, which featured no footage of Jack Sparrow. However, it did serve as an introduction for the franchise’s latest adversaries: Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) and his band of ghost pirates (or are they pirate ghosts?). The clip very effectively established Salazar’s threat in a way that seems much darker than some of the previous films, as Bardem hasn’t been this intimidating since he was carrying a captive bolt pistol in No Country For Old Men. Salazar has a message for his old foe, Jack, and he’s writing it in blood.
Earlier today, Disney also released the poster for Dead Men Tell No Tales, which features a new take on the series’ recurring skull motif.
Depp isn’t the only cast member coming back for this sequel. He’ll be joined by Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally, and even Orlando Bloom, who sat out of On Stranger Tides. Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites will also be featured in the cast, and Paul McCartney reportedly has a small role as well.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will sail into theaters on May 26, 2017.
