Following the debut of the Super Bowl spot for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales," Disney has released a slew of new images from the fifth installment of the swashbuckling franchise.
In the upcoming film, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) goes in search of the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants whoever possesses it total control of the sea, in order to stop his old rival Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) and his crew of ghost sailors from killing every pirate on the waves.
The images below offer a better look at Bardem's Salazar and his crew as they go in the hunt for Sparrow, leading to a confrontation with Brenton Thwaites' Henry.
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" is the first film in the franchise since 2011's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," which grossed a disappointing $240 million domestically and $654 million worldwide.
Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, "Dead Men Tell No Tales" stars Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs and Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, alongside such franchise newcomers Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario. The film opens May 26.
