Walt Disney Pictures has announced that the latest Pirates film starring Johnny Depp will be officially titled in the Philippines as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge. (The film is alternatively called Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the US.)
The fifth installment in the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Salazar’s Revenge will bow in local cinemas starting May 24, 2017.
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Oscar Best Foreign Language Film nominee Kon-Tiki).
The cast also includes Orlando Bloom, Kaya Scodelario, David Wenham, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is distributed in the Philippines by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
