Ahoy! Jack Sparrow and his crew of misfit characters are about to make land, as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is set to hit theaters next weekend. To help with the wait, Disney has released the first official clip from the film.
The fifth installment in the franchise tells the story of Captain Salazar, a Spanish sailor who was tricked by Sparrow in the past. Now, as an undead sea-bearer, Salazar has returned to hunt down the man who wronged him.
In this first clip, aptly called 'Ghosts', the main characters have an odd run-in with Salazar and his cronies.
As Jack backs up onto an island, the creature-sailors run on the water after him. Unfortunately for them, Jack discovers that they can't walk on land. Henry and Carina then take off for the woods, yelling about the 'ghosts' coming after them.
This clip makes it seem like the Pirates franchise has rediscovered much of the humor that made the original film a success. Hopefully the whole movie mirrors that tone.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sails into theaters on May 26.
