A new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, sees Johnny Depp’s return as the swashbuckling anti-hero pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow. We also see a glimpse of returning stars like Captain Turner, Captain Barbossa.
Here is the trailer video:
Fun fact: The song featured in the trailer is called Ain’t No Grave, by Johnny Cash. This was also the theme song which WWE superstar The Undertaker, used in Wrestlemania 27.
The plot of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:
Capitán Salazar, a ghost pirate abandoned in the Devil’s Triangle with his crew, has escaped and wants to kill all pirates at seas, including Jack Sparrow. Captian Jack Sparrows’s only hope of defeating his rival is the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants its possessor total control over the seas. To do so he forges an alliance with Henry and Carina Smyth. The Dying Gull, is the ship which Captian Jack leads. The bird in the video looks like a Dying Gull, very symbolic.
