Movie Preview: 'Dead Men Tell No Tales'

“The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tells No Tales,” which will be released May 26, 2017, is an upcoming American fantasy swashbuckler film and the the fifth installment in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series. The previous movie in the series was released in 2011.

Johnny Depp has played the main character Jack Sparrow for all of the films in the series and will return for this film. Other actors include Orlando Bloom, who will return as Will Turner, and and Javier Bardem, who will play the villain, Captain Salazar, in this film.

The directors, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, have worked together in past movies, but now they are coming together for the first time to make a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. The budget of the movie is $320 million.

According to Screen Rant, “the theatrical trailer largely fills in the gaps in the previously-released plot summaries for the movie revealing more about the film’s villain Captain Salazar and the personal history that he has with Jack Sparrow in addition to better explaining why Salazar’s is wanting to wipe out pirate-kind in general.

Below is a trailer for the film.
