First look at Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Last night’s Super Bowl spot for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales had a lot of new footage from the upcoming fifth film and also offered our first look at the return of Orlando Bloom’s WIll Turner to the franchise.
As you may recall, following the end of 2007’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Will became the new captain of The Flying Dutchman and was cursed to sail the seas and ferry the dead to the other side. As part of his curse, he is only allowed to return to land for one day every ten years. It is worth noting, however, that when he became the Captain and broke Davy Jones’ curse, the crew reverted back to a human form, but if we take the image below at face value, it would appear Will is slowly being cursed again…
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – notably Jack. Jack’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), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifull small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, Stephen Graham as Scrum, and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.
