Movies| | By Brian Delpozo
Five years after the previous installment debuted in theaters, Disney has released the first poster and teaser trailer for the upcoming fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
The promo for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mean Tell No Tales first aired during Fear the Walking Dead Sunday night, before being released to the company’s social media channels. Watch:
The near two-minute long clip doesn’t reveal much in the plot department, depicting a British ship being attacked by a group of “zombie” pirates. After massacring most of the crew, the film’s main villain Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) tells a survivor to let Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp, whose only appearance in the trailer is on a wanted poster) know that death is coming for him.
The film’s official synopsis, as released by Disney, doesn’t reveal much in the way of content either. It reads simply:
“The villainous Capt. Salazar (Javier Bardem) pursues Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he searches for the trident used by Poseidon.”
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, named after the tagline of the iconic Disney theme park attraction the films were based on, is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2017.
In addition to Depp and Bardem, the film features returning POTC franchise veterans Orlando Bloom and Geoffery Rush, as well as newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites.
