Ahoy! The new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean has washed ashore, and it’s got some big surprises for longtime fans. The gritty trailer shows off plenty of new faces who moviegoers will come to fear.
The trailer gives fans a first-look at Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, a violent swashbuckler who is trapped in the Devil’s Triangle. The ghost pirate spends his days mercilessly hunting Jack Sparrow, his former nemesis while killing every pirate he can. And, of course, the villain’s on-going hunt for the Trident of Poseidon will help him fulfill his question for world domination.
Sadly, the trailer didn’t show us Captain Jack Sparrow, but fans do know he is on the hunt for the very same object which Captain Salazar seeks. However, they do get to meet Henry who is played by Brenton Thwaites. The boy is seen locked up in a ship’s prison which Captain Salazar enters. Spotting a wanted poster for Sparrow, the merciless ghost tells the young boy to find his rival and tell him that death is coming straight for him - but he does at least say “please.”
If you want to check out the trailer, then you can watch it about. ComicBook.com has also created a massive gallery of the best still images from the trailer, so you can get your pirate hats on and start speculating about what we’ll see when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales drops.
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
