Beyond that, the trailer promises action-packed adventure balanced by the wry humor fans have come to expect from Pirates, so the final (maybe?) film in the series ought to be an appropriate conclusion. The pirates of the Caribbean 5 cast have already been announced and many have been seen in the trailer, but there's no sign of Will!

Hit-seeking Johnny Depp headlines the fifth film in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales. That title refers to Javier Bardem's Captain Salazar, and this trailer's opening scene gives us a pretty good idea about why he'd want revenge against Sparrow.

Elsewhere there's more of Kaya Scodelario Carina, who is basically the new Elizabeth Swann, and Brenton Thwaites' Henry, who is effectively the new Will Turner.

The movie also did well in the worldwide territory with $72 million after bringing in an estimated $21.5 million from 62 markets. All current box office estimates are provided to Mashable by comScore and all historical data is sourced from BoxOfficeMojo .

I'll admit that after the freaky On Stranger Tides, it seems that directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) might have righted the keel on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise by channeling the best of Gore Verbinski's trilogy and adding a more streamlined story, next-generation special effects and a treasure of new faces.

In the player below, you can take a look at Walt Disney Pictures' latest chapter, Dead Men Tell No Tales. Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth, a brilliant and handsome astronomer, and Henry, a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. Captain Jack is pursued by undead pirate hunter and old rival Armando Salazar (portrayed by Javier Bardem), whose sole goal in (after) life is to wipe out every last pirate on water.
