Captain Jack Sparrow, the perpetual underdog of the seven seas, assembles his swashbuckling crew in the new international poster for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Flanked by Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), Henry (Brenton Thwaites), Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and the glowering Salazar (Javier Bardem), Johnny Depp’s eccentric hero is placed front and center. Confronted by unspeakable evil, Sparrow will soon face his greatest adventure to date, after Salazar claws his way out of the so-called Devil’s Triangle seeking revenge.
Armed with a crew of undead pirates – hence the title – Dead Men Tell No Tales looks to place a laser focus on the bitter rivalry between Bardem and Johnny Depp’s warring seamen, and it’ll be fascinating to see how franchise newcomers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg balance that dynamic with the blockbuster action the series is celebrated for. It’s a balancing act that the series has fumbled in the past, but we’re hoping Disney’s Pirates franchise is able to turn a corner following a six-year absence from the big screen. Rounding out the cast list for this one are Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, and Stephen Graham as Scrum.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales docks in theaters on May 26th. Can it go on to become the franchise revival that Disney so craves? Or will Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg’s soft reboot be dead on arrival? We’ll find out in a few months’ time. In the meantime, you’ll be able to find that all-new poster embedded below.
