Hi ho, hi ho, turns out the life of a pirate is fraught with bloody battles, continued feuds with fearsome enemies and a whole mess of excellent accessories. Javier Bardem joins the latest entry into the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise as Captain Salazar, apparently not a big fan of Johnny Depp’s signature Captain Sparrow, and yet another baddie out for blood (and gold, these are pirates, after all).
The first teaser trailer for the film holds plenty of familiar elements — a sea-set battle, a ruined ship, a whole lot of stomping across an upper deck — while also introducing us to Bardem’s Salazar, who is looking for Captain Jack Sparrow and is prepared to deliver swift death to his rival upon their meeting. “Find Sparrow for me,” he growls. “And relay a message from Captain Salazar. Tell him death comes straight for him.” What’d you do this time, Sparrow?
This latest film in the popular franchise is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, and will bring back Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, with starring turns from Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario and Golshifteh Farahani.
Check out the teaser trailer below.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tale No Tells” arrives in theaters in May of 2017.
