For my money, we’ve had just about enough Pirates of the Caribbean films, but Johnny Depp needs a box office win, so let’s give it to him. Disney has now released the name and synopsis for their fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film, so get ready for: Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Joining Depp in this (most likely ill-conceived movie) are: Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Golshifteh Farahani, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally, and Stephen Graham.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
