The first teaser for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales introduced us to a pair of the film's new characters. We've been waiting to see what else is is coming for the money making Disney franchise, and tonight during the Super Bowl we saw exactly that. A new trailer dropped during the Big Game's festivities and it gave us another glimpse of what's next for Captain Jack Sparrow.
While the basic plot of Pirates 5, that the ghost pirate Salazar, played byJavier Bardem, is looking to take down Johnny Depp's Captain Jack, is about the only thing that we were able to confirm from the first teaser, we know a bit more about the film than that based on official information released by Disney, as well as other details that have the actors have spoken about. We know that Brenton Thwaites will be playing the son of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann. Based on the original teaser it looked like he might very well be our main character, much like Orlando Bloom was really the focus of the original Pirates of the Caribbean.
While the last trailer gave us all new characters, this one gave the mass audience of the Super Bowl the characters that they're more familiar with. This included Geoffrey Rush who is returning as Captain Barbossa. We see him in a couple of moments in the trailer, including one that looks like it may not turn out well for him, as Javier Bardem's Salazar is right behind him.
There's also a blink and you'll miss it moment with Orlando Bloom himself. It's a single shot and it's in the dark so it's difficult to even tell what you're looking at. However, after viewing this trailer several times in the last few minutes. This is, without a doubt, the return of Davy Jones himself, Will Turner.
Finally, the trailer ends where we would have guessed that it would have. Having not seen Captain Jack Sparrow up until this point, they were saving him for the last moments.
The spot doesn't tell us very much about the movie, beyond the fact that it exists, but it has us more intrigued for a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie than we would have guessed we'd be following the convoluted mess that was On Stranger Tides. Part of that might be the inclusion of a Johnny Cash soundtrack, that obviously won't actually be in the movie, but we'll hold out hope this one will actually be a return to the fun of the original film in the franchise.
