Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales- Trailers.

Postby The Romulan Republic » 2017-03-04 12:26am

So, we're due for another Pirates film this spring. Looks like pretty much more of the same, but really, the series is pretty much just a pretext for Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush to be awesome opposite each other, with pseudo-17th. Century Caribbean scenery porn as a backdrop, and it looks like it will probably deliver that much at least.

Plus Javier Bardem as a villain.

Edit: Oh, and nice choice of song for the trailer. :D

Also, is that Spoiler
the return of Will and the Flying Dutchman to the franchise I see?
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.
