Javier Bardem really has it in for Jack Sparrow in new Pirates 5 trailer

The new Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens with a bit of monologuing from Javier Bardem’s Captain Armando Salazar, who hated pirates in life and hasn’t quite gotten over that despite now being undead. Not that his grudge is unfounded: In addition to being a general scourge, pirates had something to do with his being trapped in something called the Devil’s Triangle. And he seems to especially hate Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), which again, is probably with good reason. In fact, no one seems to care for Jack in this trailer—not the kid (Brendon Thwaites) who breaks him out of jail, nor his old compatriots, or the astronomer played by Kaya Scodelario. But that’s never prevented him from assembling a crew before, and it doesn’t hinder him here either.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail on Memorial Day.
