Dead Men Tell No Tales in the New Pirates Trailer!

But wait, there's more - ghost sharks.

This time, he's being pursued by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a royally pissed-off ghost who's out to kill every pirate in the sea.

In the new footage, which premiered on Ellen Thursday, Disney lovers learn that Salazar was once out to eliminate all pirates, but everything changed when he met Jack as a boy. Salazar makes lots of appearances in this new trailer, and he's undeniably creepy.

"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". The fifth movie in the franchise brings back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa, and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner. In the post-credits of Pirates of the Caribbean 3- where Will and his wife, Elizabeth Swann had to rescue Jack-Will returned a decade later to see his wife and son waiting for him by the cliff.

Johnny Depp, as Jack Sparrow, one of the most recognizable characters in the history of movies, and others did return for the fourth film in the series however that wasn't enough to put bums on seats.

Interesting it's also being billed as "The Final Adventure". Sparrow must find the legendary Trident of Poseidon which will give him total control over the seas.

I'm still not sure why the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie is called Dead Men Tell No Tales in the USA, but in the United Kingdom it's Salazar's Revenge.

I'll admit that after the freaky On Stranger Tides, it seems that directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) might have righted the keel on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise by channeling the best of Gore Verbinski's trilogy and adding a more streamlined story, next-generation special effects and a treasure of new faces.
