The villainous Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) pursues Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he searches for the trident used by Poseidon in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales.

Walt Disney Studios unveiled the fifth installment in their Pirates of the Caribbean franchise Dead Men Tell No Tales Tuesday night at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Initial reactions from those in attendance were largely positive, celebrating a return to form for the franchise and the well-done VFX.

Gizmodo writer Germain Lussier wrote that it was the best since the first, adding that while that isn’t saying much, it does occasionally capture that magic. editor in chief Steven Weintraub praised the action set pieces and said it was better than the fourth.

The swashbuckling film sees the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa and introduces a new young cast in Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario. It hits theatres on May 26.
