In the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, which improbably found its genesis in the Disney World ride, Johnny Depp returns in Dead Men Tell No Tales, pumping new life into the series which On Stranger Tides had left for dead. Brought back into action by the need to find the Trident of Poseidon, Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow joins with new and old accomplices to save himself … and save the world.
Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) is a true believer; as the son of Will and Elizabeth Turner (Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley), he knows what Jack can do. But when he discovers that the Trident can in fact break the curse on his father aboard the ghostly Flying Dutchman, well, he does everything he can to convince Jack to get the Trident. Kaya Scodelario joins them as the astronomer (or accused witch) Carina Smyth and Geoffrey Rush’s richly corporate pirate Barbossa, who want to find it, too.
