Walt Disney Pictures have recently released their first teaser trailer and one sheet for Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning's (Kon-Tiki) Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge.
The fifth and latest Pirates Of The Caribbean film has undergone something of a subtitle change for UK audiences – what is called Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales elsewhere is now known as Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge here.
We suppose the new title makes sense, focusing as it does on Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a ghostly former cohort of Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow. Freshly escaped from the Devil's Triangle, Salazar and his spectral crew are killing all the living pirates, and Jack is their primary target.
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 sailor in the Royal Navy. The teaser features no Jack, but instead finds Bardem's ghostly, but surprisingly polite sort demanding that Henry finds Jack for him.
Kon-Tiki's (2012) Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning are at the helm for this one, which Walt Disney Pictures will be hoping can keep the successful money tsunami going and generate some better reviews than the last outing.
We will find out if that is the case when Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge docks into UK cinemas on 26 May next year.
