Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge trailer is missing Johnny Depp

Where's Captain Jack?

The trailer for the upcoming fifth instalment in Disney’s wildly popular Pirates of the Caribbean series has arrived online.

The film which will be subtitled Salazar’s Revenge here in the UK and Dead Men Tell No Tales throughout the rest of the world, will see Johnny Depp once again reprise the role of Jack Sparrow.

Curiously, as you’ll see from the trailer, while Sparrow is indeed name-checked he does not actually appear in this teaser.

Instead, the trailer focuses on the franchise’s new big bad Captain Salazar (a CG tinkered Javier Bardem), a ghostly apparition who has sinister plans for Captain Sparrow.

The trailer also features Brenton Thwaites, who you might of seen in Gods of Egypt earlier this year, though if you were fortunate enough to miss that one then trust us you dodged a bullet.

Considering the lacklustre reviews of the previous instalment, 2011’s On Stranger Tides, Disney will be hoping that this new instalment can ensure the franchise continues being the cash cow it has been for them thus far.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is not due to hit cinema screens over here until May 26 next year.
