Johnny Depp Is Back On The High Seas In ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Super Bowl Spot

As The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons battled on the field for last night’s Super Bowl 51 championship, Disney decided to unveil their latest trailer for the battle on the high seas. That’s right, Jack Sparrow fans got a brand new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. 

Due out later this spring, the newest nautical adventure follows the living-dead crew of Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) as they try to kill every pirate at sea—especially Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).

“The dead have taken command of the sea,” says a woman’s voice over the scene of siege. “They’re searching for a sparrow.”

From running on water to not fearing fire to sicking their zombified sharks on the seemingly doomed crew, the nearly minute and a half trailer doesn’t disappoint when it comes to action and ghoulish special effects.

But where is Jack in the middle of all the mayhem? You don’t see him until the end of the clip, who calmly toasts “a pirate’s life” while covered in mud. That’s one way to go incognito.

Disney’s fifth installment of the Pirates movie series is written by Jeff Nathanson and Terry Rosio, who worked on the previous installment On Stranger Tides. The film is directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning (co-directors on 2014’s Marco Polo). Dead Men Tell No Tales sails into theaters on May 26.
