The movie features Johnny Depp returning to his role of Jack Sparrow, the eternally drunk pirate and intrepid explorer, as well as Orlando Bloom back as Will Turner, the young adventurer that Sparrow took under wing in the first movie.

Visually, the footage looks fantastic, these films certainly haven’t lost their sense of scope and it has a surprisingly eerie tone that belies the swashbuckling slapstick at the heart of the former entries. This time around we’ve got Javier Bardem as one of Sparrow’s ghostly former cohorts, Captain Salazar, and as a master of the art of scenery chewing villainy, he appears to be on top kooky form. It’s been a long time since I greeted a Pirates of the Carribean with feverish anticipation, but with a pair of exciting new directors and this promising first footage, I’m on board to see where this one goes.

The latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the duo behind the foreign adventure film Kon-Tiki. The screenplay is courtesy of Jeff Nathanson, who penned movies ranging from Tower Heist and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to The Terminal and Rush Hour 3. Depp and Bloom star alongside a cast that includes Kaya Scodelario, David Wenham, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites, and, continuing the rockstar tradition started with Keith Richards, Paul McCartney.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will hit theaters nationwide on May 26th, 2017. Here’s the first trailer:

Here’s the official synopsis for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:

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.
