Jack is back, and his luck has run out. Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) has released the most deadly ghost pirates of the sea from the devil’s Triangle. Salazar is the oldest villain of Jack Sparrow. The ghost pirates hunt on every single pirate on sea, including Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). The only hope to survive this adventure is to collect the legendary Trident of Poseidon. This weapon is the most powerful weapon and the owner gets control of all seas. Is Jack going to collect this powerful weapon and can he insure he is not going to get killed by Captain Salazar and his pirate ghosts?
For some reason, this film has two directors (Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg), and that’s rarely a good sign. Apparently, the first film in the series was the best, but when I saw that (rather late, compared to most people), I wasn’t impressed with it. Went on too long, and based on the running times, the others have, too.
The cast, some of them returning, includes Kaya Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, Golshifteh Farahani, Kevin McNally, Brenton Thwaites, Geoffrey Rush, Stephen Graham, and apparently, Paul McCartney.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is due out in UK cinemas on May 26th, 2017, the same day as the US.
