The final Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer has arrived, and I'll cut right to the chase: it features a CGI de-aged Johnny Depp. Is this a selling point? A deterrent?
You make the call.
My suspicion is that CGI Depp will provide ammo for Pirates Of The Caribbean detractors while serving as something of a selling point ("Hey, this year's model has a new feature!") to fans. My further suspicion is that CGI Depp will make zero difference to fence-sitters, but then again, what could? If you don't know whether or not you're onboard with this franchise at this point, I'm not sure what to tell you. Maybe it's time to get off the fence completely, find another issue to struggle with.
Anyway, here's the official synopsis:
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 Salazar (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 pitifully 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 ever faced.
Sure, sure, sounds good.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters on May 26th. Are you gonna see it or nah?
