The trailer for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was released today. This makes the series’ fifth installment and fans are eagerly awaiting its May 26, 2017, launch date.
While the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 aired for the first time during The Walking Dead, fans who didn’t catch the trailer during the show were not left out. The official Pirates of the Caribbean Facebook page posted the trailer late Sunday night, and the post has already been shared 130,394 times and commented on 20,000+ times at the time of this writing. Fans are excited that Jack Sparrow is back, but there is questions surrounding Elizabeth Turner’s role in the movie. According to the cast listing on IMDB, Elizabeth Swan is not part of the cast of characters.
Fans are excited that both stars Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are both playing their key roles in the new Pirates of the Caribbean, while some feel that the franchise is tired and overdone at this point.
The trailer sure leaves a lot of speculation and a lot to the imagination as fans await the launch date that is over half a year away. So far, we know the cast according to IMDB, now we have the trailer, and here is the official synopsis of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
“Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck 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 (Bardem), 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.”
The film began production in 2015 with directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. In March, Entertainment Weekly reported that Johnny Depp suffered a hand injury that ended up halting production of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 for several weeks after Depp had to fly to the United States to have surgery, which included putting a pin in his hand. At the time of that report, the movie was set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017 – so the trailer with a May release date is something for Pirate fans to celebrate.

The news that Johnny Depp will keep his leading role as Jack Sparrow was a relief to fans as last month there were numerous rumors that the actor would be stripped of his role due to his behavior on set. The actor was reportedly having a difficult time with his divorce from Amber Heard. Movie News Guide confirmed that Depp would remain as Jack Sparrow at least for this movie, but the future of Pirates of the Caribbean with Depp is unknown. The Pirates costars were getting upset as Depp’s issues delayed filming and made the movie miss a deadline and put all of the cast in a bad spot. It’s said that Depp would show up late and sometimes wouldn’t even appear at all. Now it seems that all of that has been sorted out as the release date was moved up to May and the official trailer aired tonight.
