Captain Jack Sparrow isn’t getting any younger, yet his life of high-seas adventure isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
Bad fortune comes knocking at his door in the shape of ruthless sea dog Captain Salazar, who has escaped from his Devil’s Triangle prison with a score or ten to settle. Backed by an army of vicious phantom pirates, he vows to kill everyone at sea, and Sparrow is at the top of his hit list.
The odds are not stacked in Jack’s favour. His ship, the woefully small and decidedly shabby Dying Gull, has seen better days and he doesn’t have a crew.
Forced to build alliances with a brilliant astronomer (Kaya Scodelario) and a stubborn young sailor (Brenton Thwaites), the weary pirate’s only hope of survival lies in a powerful artefact which grants the owner complete control over the seas.
However, finding the Trident of Poseidon will prove to be a deadly mission in itself.
The fifth chapter in the rip-roaring pirate epic sees Johnny Depp (Murder on the Orient Express) reprise his iconic role, alongside fellow series veteran Orlando Bloom (Unlocked).
The versatile Javier Bardem (Escobar) is a welcome addition to the franchise, as is Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner: The Death Cure) and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent 2).
