The third trailer for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ (UK Title) debuted on Ellen DeGeneres’ show earlier today, and this trailer has much more focus on Captain Jack Sparrow than the previous ones we’ve seen. This trailer also seemingly confirms that this will be that last Pirates of the Caribbean film, but I’ll believe that when I see it (or not see it in this case).
This trailer gives us a greater insight into the plot and the explosive history between Salazar and Jack Sparrow, and introduces us to Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites’ characters. The synopsis alongside the trailer reads:
“Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge” 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.”
Whilst this trailer makes the film look more promising than the previous entries in the franchise, following the disappointing films that followed the original, it’s hard to get excited for ‘Salazar’s Revenge’. Hopefully Disney have spent the last 6 years following the release of ‘On Stranger Tides’ working on a film that will rekindle peoples love for the franchise and it’s characters.
‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ sails into UK cinemas on 26th May 2017.
