Death comes for Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and by death I mean a CGI Javier Bardem and his CGI crew.
Now I don’t mean to take a jab at CGI Javier Bardem, in fact I do like the look of Captain Salazar, the main villain of the new flick. It’s a very cool effect (like he’s still in the water), unlike anything we’ve seen so far in the series. I’m also fairly certain I’m not the only one who thinks that, which is why they probably chose to focus on Salazar for this first teaser and skip Captain Jack (for now). Another good thing, just about everything shown here brings to mind Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (still by far the best in the series), and I bet that’s exactly what they were going for. Of course it’s way too early to tell, but for now I’m at least intrigued by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
