New Synopsis released for Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Yo Ho, all together. Hoist the colours high! We have a new official synopsis for Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Awhile back we treated to our first look at Pirates of The Caribbean 5. Now it looks like Disney has given us our first full synopsis for the film.

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 Salazer (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 (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifull 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 never faced.

So there we have it. Old Captain Jack is in the thick of it again, this time his only hope is the Trident of Poseidon. I for one am pretty excited to see Capt. Jack go up against what looks to be a pretty awesome villain in Javier Bardem's Captain Salazer.

The synopsis arises a few questions too. Most notably is Orlando Bloom's Will Turner in it as he is rumored to be? We will have to wait until May 26th 2017 when Dead Men Tel No Tales finally hits theaters.
