 Pirates

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic, Academy Award®-nominated role of Captain Jack Sparrow, one of the most beloved characters in motion picture history, newly joined by Oscar® winner Javier Bardem, rising young stars Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites  and Golshifteh Farahani. Rejoining the action are Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs and Stephen Graham as Scrum.

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (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.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and written by Jeff Nathanson. The executive producers are Chad Oman, Joe Caracciolo, Jr. and Brigham Taylor.

  • Yay! I just re-watched all four of them in a row with my 7 year old daughter (she hadn’t seen them all before). Watching them all together was amazing! They made so much more sense that way and all of the directorial choices and character growth was so evident. Geoffrey Rush is incredible. So over-the-top yet spot on. Loved watching them again. We are so exited for more!
