Erm…since when was Pirates of the Caribbean nearly 15 years old?!
Even though we do feel super old after that fact, we can’t help but be excited about the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Movie; Dead Men Tell No Tales. The movie is set to be released on 26th May, and this new promo has made us even more excited (if not a little confused and thankful for our smooth human skin).
This new movie sees the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner (Yay!). The last time we saw Orlando Bloom in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was in the third movie, At World’s End where he took over from Davy Jones as the Captain of the Flying Dutchman, after his heart was carved out of his own chest and into the Dead Man’s Chest. Ouch. The new film is now jumping ship ten years later, because, of course, The Flying Dutchman can only come ashore every ten years. Duh.
But it seems that Turner’s time aboard the Flying Dutchman has aged him a little. Who are we kidding, he’s aged a lot. They say that the sea air makes you look younger…well, not in this case. Unless by ‘younger’ you mean ‘super scaly, mutating, and unlike the Will Turner we used to have a crush on.’
But his appearance does tell us one thing – his greed of ruling the sea and being captain of The Flying Dutchman seems to have overpowered him. Is there any way back? Or will he be stuck like that forever? We’ll have to watch to find out…
The fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is set to follow the life of everyone’s favorite rum-loving, quirky pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he travels through the sea in search of the Trident of Poseidon. As we all do. While he’s on his search, Captain Salazar (played by Javier Bardem) spends his time trying to eliminate all other pirates. Have these other pirates not learned that Sparrow is invincible yet? But don’t worry, the likes of Captain Barbosa, Scrum and Gibbs will still appear in this new installment.
Luckily, all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have all been just as good as one another and has not suffered the misfortune of the flopped sequel. So this fifth movie has a lot of pressure riding on its release. But with directors like Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, we can’t imagine they’ll have any problems with it being a huge success.
And remember, Dead Men Tell No Tales…
