Brenton Thwaites Says ‘Pirates 5’ Is ‘New Beginning’ For Franchise

PiratesWith Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sailing into theaters this weekend, fans of the Pirates franchise will return to the world with both returning and new faces. One of those new faces, Brenton Thwaites, who plays Henry Turner, sees this return as a chance to progress the franchise and take it in new directions.

When Screen Rant caught up with Thwaites on press day, they asked him about the future and where things could go from here.

I think it’s a new beginning. I think it’s tying a lot of loose ends together and also providing an opportunity to continue the story and to continue the journey. There’s a bunch of new characters in this film, so in this one we sort of, you know, playing in their own moments and continuing their own stories, but there is definitely room to explore their backstories and their relationships in the next one if there is another one.

If there is another Pirates movie – and let’s be real, there probably will be – Thwaites has a few ideas as to the direction he’d like to see his character go.

I would like to see him explore relationships with his family a little bit more. I mean, that theme of family has been carried from the first movies and I really liked that. I think there’s a lot of room for relationship exploration with Carina. It’s a funny relationship where they like each other, but they are constantly butting heads and disagreeing and I think there’s an opportunity for comedy and, you know, the start for a whole new journey for those guys.

Of course, when Thwaites refers to Henry’s family, he’s referring to William Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), his parents. With Knightley only having a small role in Dead Men Tell No Tales, it’s unclear whether she’d even return for a sixth installment. Bloom on the other hand seems more likely at this juncture. Before we can even consider any of that however, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales must first ride high on the box office seas. You can read our review of the film here.

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.

Directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, and Keira Knightley.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be in theaters May 26, 2017.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

Previous1 of 11

TrailersEvery year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
