Super Bowl Spot: Disney’s ‘Pirates: Dead Men Tell No Tales’
Disney has released an extended 80-second Super Bowl spot for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which offers first glimpses of Geoffrey Rush, Johnny Depp and also our first look at the return of Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner to the franchise (above).
The last Pirates of the Caribbean movie, directed by Norwegian filmmakers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost pirates, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – including Jack.
The film also co-stars Kevin R. McNally, David Wenham, Stephen Graham, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites and Golshifteh Farahani, and it opens in theaters on May 26th. Check out the extended spot below.
This looks amazing. Let’s hope we are not fooled by the trailer. At least the series’ streak of having some cool-as-hell visual sequences and the right actors playing the bad guys appears to be unbroken, if nothing else.
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
