Dead Men Tell No Tales is the fifth installment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which began with The Curse of the Black Pearl back in 2003. Based on a Disney World theme park attraction, the series has turned into one of the studio’s most lucrative properties, bringing in nearly $4 billion at the worldwide box office. Pirates was a breakout starring vehicle for Depp, who earned a Best Actor nomination for his portrayal of Jack Sparrow in the original film. Trailers and TV spots for Dead Men Tell No Tales have billed this one as the “final adventure,” so it remains to be seen if the franchise will continue beyond this point.
Orlando Bloom, who portrayed protagonist Will Turner in the first three movies, returns after a 10 year absence.
