New ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5’ TV Spot Teases Salazar’s Revenge

Pirates

Disney has released a brand new TV spot for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the Pirates franchise. The new spot shines a little more light into the reason that Javier Bardem’s character Captain Salazar seeks to get revenge on Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).

You can check out the new TV spot below:

Based on this TV spot, it seems as if, while alive, Captain Salazar made it his mission to rid the world of pirates, who he viewed as a disease, and it was a young Jack Sparrow that originally vanquished him. The Captain met his end at the bottom of the sea, but now, Salazar has returned from beyond the grave, leading an army of the dead, to finally get his revenge on everyone’s favorite pirate. Oh, a pirate’s life indeed.

Directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales stars the returning Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush, who will be joined by newcomers Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, David Wenham and Paul McCartney. Keira Knightley will also reprise her role as Elizabeth Swann in a cameo appearance. Here is the official synopsis:

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier 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 hits theaters May 26, 2017.

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

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!
