Disney has released the first trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the franchise. It features Javier Bardem (Skyfall, No Country For Old Men) as the film’s big bad, Captain Salazar, giving Henry (Brenton Thwaites) a message for Captain Jack. Interesting that the trailer concentrates on two new characters. Maybe Johnny Depp isn’t currently great for marketing for some reason…?
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is directed by Norwegian duo Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) and will feature the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa. Paul McCartney has a role as well because cameos for wrinkly rock legends are clearly a part of the franchise now after Keith Richards’ appearance in On Stranger Tides. To be honest we’d have thought Iggy Pop was a better fit, though it would be hilarious to see grumpy old Van Morrison in a bandanna and eye-patch.
