This will be the fifth installment in the franchise of the films which stars Johnny Depp as the whacky pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. The film will also see the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa. Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent, The Giver) plays a new character named Henry, and Paul McCartney has a role as well.

The film is directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) and features Academy Award winner Javier Bardem as the villainous Captain Salazar.

The new CGI-heavy trailer like the last heavily focuses on Captain Salazar; rather than keeping the focus on the protagonist Jack Sparrow.

Salazar and his army of skeletons escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea especially Sparrow. Sparrow'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), an astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a young sailor in the Royal Navy.

The trailer which is set to Johnny Cash's 'Ain't No Grave' also set the release date of 26 May 2017 in the U.S.

Here's a peak of the upcoming film:
