Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer

Finally, the first teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales has been released. Unfortunately, the trailer comes without johnny in it.

The most interesting thing about this trailer is that A) it offers a grim, dark, and moody look as opposed to a more buoyant and comic sell and B) it features no Jack Sparrow whatsoever. Instead, it is a grim, violent tease which climaxes with the reveal of our major villain, played by Javier Bardem, who is hunting Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow for reasons not yet revealed. Whether or not his absence is related to the much-discussed domestic abuse allegations, it is a buzzy way to reintroduce a franchise that hasn’t been on the pop culture radar for awhile.

It’s obviously an announcement teaser, but it is rooted in the notion that merely the idea of Jack Sparrow showing up eventually is enough to get audiences interested. Moreover, it offers a proceeding 75 seconds or so that are intriguing and engaging enough to audiences sans knowledge of what movie is being sold.
