The first teaser trailer for the next instalment in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise was shown during the Fear the Walking Dead finale on Sunday in the US, and you can watch it below. It’s surprisingly dark and moody in tone, and Captain Jack Sparrow is nowhere to be seen. Depp is certainly in the film, but perhaps Disney doesn’t see him as the main attraction anymore due to certain events concerning him of late, and the fact that he almost seems to be box office poison at the moment, though he certainly appears to be at the centre of the plot. They’re certainly taking their time with a film that was originally going to be shot alongside the fourth film On Stranger Tides, which for me just about managed to make up for the huge disappointment of At World’s End.


Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, written by Jeff Nathanson, and stars Johnny Depp, Kaya Scodelario, Carina Smyth, Orlando Bloom, Golshifteh Farahani, Javier Bardem, Kevin McNally, Brenton Thwaites, Geoffrey Rush and David Wenham. It’s out May 2017.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.

  1. Dislike that whole “would you say that to him?…please?” bit. It was intimidating otherwise. However, the plot seems exactly the same as the other movies but the more I think about it, I’m not sure what exactly you can do with a pirate movie….
