Drink up, me hearties, and behold these new Pirates of the Caribbean 5 character posters showcasing the charismatic cast of rowdy swashbucklers and those unlucky mortals who cross their fateful paths on the cinematic high seas. With a king's ransom spent ($320 million) on making this soft reboot of the billion-dollar Pirates franchise, directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) will be raising a white flag of optimism when this rousing supernatural adventure drops anchor on May 26.
For those scurvy knaves unaware of this next sailing of Disney's band of buccaneers, here's the official synopsis once again:
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all new Pirates movie. 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 pitiful 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.
