The first Pirates of the Caribbean film was a well-received summer blockbuster. However, with every sequel that has followed, the franchise has become more and more difficult to enjoy. The teaser for the newest entry does give us some hope that Dead Men Tell No Tales could be the reboot the franchise needs. Both what we see, and what we don't see, give us the impression that the new film is on the right the right track. Let's watch it one more time, as a refresher:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a rough film, even for fans of the franchise. It took the story in a very different direction than the original trilogy, and while that may have seemed like a good idea at the time, it just didn't work out. Our first look at Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales feels like it's much more the story we'd like to see. Here's why we have hope for Pirates 5:

A Possible Return To Former, Important Locations

It's hard to know for sure, but the opening shots in the new teaser certainly seem to imply that some of the action is going to return to the Isle De La Muerte, a pivotal location from the original film. While the return of a location doesn't by itself mean that the quality of the film will be on par with that movie, it is certainly a sign that the movie is attempting to recapture that magic, rather than to, yet again, try to do something entirely different with the movies. As they say, write what you know.
