With the news that the first look at Pirate of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales being released later this evening, Disney have treated us to an earlier viewing of the first poster for the upcoming fifth installment of the franchise.
Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise have been waiting a long while to get their first glance on the film, with the last installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, being released five years ago in 2011. The upcoming fifth installment boasts a return for Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow as well as Orlando Bloom’s fan favorite character Will Turner, who hasn’t been seen since 2007’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

If you need a bit more than the new poster to get you excited, you can find the synopsis for the film 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.
After many delayed release dates, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is finally set to be released on May 26, 2017, starring Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and is directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning.
