First Look: Johnny Depp All Tied Up in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

There has been a pause in production for a little while after Johnny Depp sustained a hand injury, but Disney still has Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on track for release a couple summers from now on July 7th, 2017. And even though Depp has been out of commission for a little but, enough was shot for Disney to begin teasing the film pretty early out with the first photo from the fifth installment of the high seas adventure series. Depp is the only recognizable actor in the picture, and he's wearing one of his signature goofy looks as Captain Jack Sparrow, who has found himself in some trouble.

Here's the first look at Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from Disney:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) and written by Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can, Rush Hour 3, Tower Heist). A down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea, including him.  Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas. Walt Disney will release the film in the summer on July 7th, 2017.

    there's no end to the fun you can have with these would just be nice if they did a better job of it.

      Agreed - though I thought At World's End lost the plot a little, On Stranger Tides dropped the ball completely. Love the characters and the acting is OTT goodness, it needs better direction.

        That's cause Rob Marshall can't do shit unless it's a musical.

      Looking back I think one big mistake they made was getting rid of Jack Davenport's character (Commodore Norrington). After Bloom and Knightly left you still need someone to offset the Captain Jackiness, to have the Will Turner-esque straight man's role to set up Depp's scene-stealing (also for the audience to experience this new world along side of: exposition). Plus, him and Depp already had great chemistry, I would have loved to see that dynamic explored more and he was already set up with a great pirate lore backstory: a former Commodore that became a pirate. Having Norrington as the straight man let's Jack, Gibbs, Barbosa and the others all be themselves rascal, crusty seaman, flowery cut throat and eliminates the need for temporary protagonists like the priest in love with the mermaid. Jack has basically devolved into the do-gooder he used to make fun of because he has to fulfill the role of protagonist hero instead of being the grimy guy who might be okay like he began as. If he was still alive the do-good stuff could be left to Norrington and Jack could still have his edge. Plus, you'd get the fun of maybe Jack corrupting Norrington.

        I know this is an old thread, but I agree too. Jack Davenport was pretty brilliant in P1. Impeccable, droll, decent, he was such a wonderful counterpoint to the pirate grunge. P2, IMO they botched the story arc for his character. P3, he's given hardly ANY screen time in that CGI headache of a movie. I too wish they had made better use of Davenport, kept Norrington at the center of the narrative. I didn't even bother with P4.

    I loved Kon-Tiki i have faith in the new directors
  • OfficialJab
    I just wish these movies came out more often.

    I have faith in this being far better than the previous film. Mostly because of my two fellow countrymen behind the camera. Kon-Tiki and Max Manus are great films.

    These are fun movies. I just wish the last one had a better written part for Ian McShane, totally wasted his talent. Hopefully this will be better. And I damn sure hope Geoffrey Rush is back. Love that dude.
    • Sean
      No, His talent wasn't wasted. He played a great Blackbeard! Yes, Geoffrey Rush is back for Pirates 5.
      • grimjob
        I think he did fine, its just that I didn't think his part was written very well. McShane is one of my favorites, and he should have been given more room.

    So excited!
