All the pirates of the Caribbean fans, it’s time to rejoice as the first teaser trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is out. Disney premiered the first teaser for Dead Men Tell No Tales, during the season finale of Fear the Walking Dead, which will reteam Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner while the former attempts to evade an old rival – Captain Salazar, played by Javier Bardem. Everyone’s favourite bad guy Geoffrey Rush is additionally set to return as Hector Barbossa, while Dead Men Tell No Tales will feature new characters played by Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) and Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner).
Over the course of its first four instalments, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise proved to be a massive financial success, earning a total $3.7 billion at the worldwide box office on a collective budget of $1 billion.
On Stranger Tides was the second biggest earner of the four movies, with $1.05 billion at the worldwide box office.
Given the tone of the first trailer, Dead Men Tell No Tales may in fact capture what worked about The Curse of the Black Pearl. Although the teaser doesn’t offer fans any glimpses of Captain Jack Sparrow (aside from his wanted poster) or Will Turner, the trailer does dish up plenty of ghostly horror through Captain Salazar – and, at its core, The Curse of the Black Pearl was a ghost story.
Still, it remains to be seen if Dead Men Tell No Tales will be able to capture the adventure, the PG-13 horror, and the humor that many found so entertaining in The Curse of the Black Pearl. However, now that Disney has begun the marketing lead-up to the film’s release with the first trailer, fans won’t have much longer to wait until Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales debuts in theatres.
