We've so far only been privy to teaser trailers for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which have done a good job at teasing Javier Bardem's villain Armando Salazar, but have been particularly light on footage of Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow. Disney might be keeping him to one side as a way of building up anticipation for his return. Or they might have taken heed of his recent run of unsuccessful films, and the domestic abuse allegations made against him last year. Either way, we can expect to see him front and center in the next trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which it has been announced will arrive tomorrow. This announcement also coincided with the release of a brand new poster for the film, too, which you can check out below.
Want to know what the best part of the above poster for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is? The ghost sharks. Just look at them.
This will mark the third trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, with the previous two having come in the form of teasers. The first was released back in October, and only showed Javier Bardem's Salazar on the hunt for Jack Sparrow, who just appeared on a wanted poster. Disney then went all out at Super Bowl LI earlier this month with an extra 30 second teaser, while an extended version then appeared online.
It showed us Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Orlando Bloom and the aforementioned ghost sharks, as well as our first glimpse of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, who was covered in mud and barely recognisable. Of course, the most redeeming feature of the trailer, though, was its use of Johnny Cash's rendition of "Ain't No Grave," which is always a delight to hear.
Disney has an awful lot riding on Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. And when I say an awful lot, I mean at least $320 million...probably more. Since the past four films have grossed $3.7 billion combined, they'll be confident that they can easily recoup this sum with the blockbuster, though. We can expect the promotion for the film to kick well and truly into gear with the release of the trailer tomorrow, as Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be with us on May 26.
