The Dead Have Risen in new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales TV Spot

The dead have taken command of the sea, and they’re looking for a girl (Kaya Scodelario’s Carina Smyth) and, wait for it, a Sparrow (Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack, of course). Walt Disney Pictures has been giving us a closer look at Dead Men Tell No Tales the last few weeks, sharing a behind-the-scenes featurette, a preview, and a trailer. In this new TV spot, we get a glimpse of one of the Pirates original cast’s big return—Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner is back.

Dead Men Tell No Tales finds Captain Jack down on his luck, and that’s before a bunch of ghost sailors, led by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle and come looking for Sparrow. Turns out these ghost sailors have a major beef with pirates, especially Jack. The only way he can survive is by finding the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which will put him in contact with Carina Smyth (Scodelario), an astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a young sailor in the Royal Navy that no doubt Jack will try to corrupt.

Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, Stephen Graham as Scrum, and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa. The film is directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki).

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will debut in theaters on May 26, 2017.
