The New Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer Explains Why Jack Sparrow Is Wanted

Walt Disney Studios released an exciting new trailer during an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the upcoming fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The trailer gives us a glimpse at a young Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and explains why he is such a wanted man on the high seas. The movie is set to release in theaters on May 26th, 2017.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. 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 young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
