Pirates Of The Caribbean:

Dead Men Tell

No Tales

Everyone’s favourite pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is back on the high seas in the fifth installment of the swashbuckling franchise from Disney.

This adventure sees Captain Sparrow on the hunt for a mythical object, the Trident of Poseidon, which supposedly gives the user control over all the seas. What’s the catch? Well, an evil undead pirate hunter Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) just recently released from the Devil’s Triangle is also looking for this object and will use it to wipe out all the pirates from the seas, especially Sparrow. It’s a race for survival for Jack and to find the Trident he needs the help of beautiful astronomer Carina (Kaya Scodelario) and Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) a young man in the British Navy.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ cast at Disneyland Paris to celebrate the release of the movie in France on (24May17)

The film promises a return to the fun and adventure of the first installment and along the way we’ll see some familiar faces from the earlier films. Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightly and Geoffrey Rush will be reprising their roles as Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann and Captain Barbossa.
