Even if "Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" is scheduled for release in May 2017, there is still a lot that fans do not know about the fifth installment in the series. Based on the latest news from Disney and the rumor mill, the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie will go back to its roots and feature the same ghostly theme in "The Curse of the Black Pearl" that made the franchise such a hit. Orlando Bloom will lose his partner in the movie and Johnny Depp who plays Captain Jack Sparrow will have a new love interest.

"Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" is already one of the movies to watch out for in 2017. With the release of the new trailer that shows a pirate adventure involving a ghostly crew, fans are ever more excited for this movie.
The first trailer released features Captain Salazar who tells a new character identified as Henry to relay a message to Sparrow. With the dead Captain Salazar after him, the Trident of Poseidon is Sparrow's only hope of survival which would also be the focus of "Pirates of the Caribbean 5."
