Disney is set to premiere a first look at Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It’s set to air after Fear the Walking Dead on AMC tonight at 9/8c. Check back later tonight to see it here!

UPDATE: The new teaser trailer has been released. It introduces Javier Bardem as a man looking to kill Jack Sparrow. What else is new? You can watch it below!

The last time we saw swash-buckling Captain Jack Sparrow was in 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. In that adventure, he’d been joined by Angelica (Penelope Cruz) in search of the fountain of youth.

Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the franchise, will bring back Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner. The film began production way back in February of 2015 and ended in July of the same year. Release has been delayed quite a few times, with initial release set for late in 2015, then 2016.

The fifth installment will now be released on May 26, 2017. The synopsis for the film is below.

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.

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

    I can barely understand what Javier Bardem is saying. I hope the director makes him dub his lines, and takes the best English pronunciation.

    None of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have been all that good. They were mostly watchable for Johnny Depp’s fey performance as Captain Sparrow. The best of the lot was “On Stranger Tides,” which predictably, got the worst reviews from the lost, dazed and confused film critics of America’s news media.

    At the end of “Stranger Tides,” Sparrow was in search of the fountain of youth. Now, he wants Poseidon’s trident? Is Disney trying to steal some of Aquaman’s thunder?
