The trailer for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean installment (Dead Men Tell No Tales) focuses on Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. A highly creepy figure relentlessly pursuing Captain Jack Sparrow, the role seems to be a Disney twist on his Oscar-winning turn as Anton Chigurh in No Country for Old Men. (Bardem’s wife, fellow Oscar winner Penélope Cruz, starred in the fourth installment of the series, 2011’s On Stranger Tides, which earned over $1 billion worldwide.)
The trailer is notable for not featuring Johnny Depp at all: While he’s clearly the star of all five films, 2016 has seen Depp face domestic abuse allegations.
The film is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2017. Watch the trailer below.
