Don’t Want To Speak Too Soon, But This New ‘Pirates’ Movie Looks Pretty Awesome


The latest trailer for the fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean aired during the Super Bowl, giving fans their best look yet at Javier Bardem’s Salazar and his army of the dead.

Salazar, a ghost pirate, is looking to settle an old score with Captain Jack Sparrow. The film features the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Hector Barbossa.

Did they kind of rip off the Logan trailer? Sure. But does that make it any less awesome? Of course not. At this point, I’ve been essentially Pavloved into thinking any movie with Johnny Cash in the trailer is going to be f*cking sweet. You give me Johnny Cash, and I’ll give you $12 dollars.

All that said, I have high hopes for this one after the shit shows that were Pirates 3 & 4. We could all use a Johnny Depp renaissance in our lives.

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Capt. Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will hit theaters on May 26, 2017.
