‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Trailer Debuts, But There's No Johnny Depp

The film's lead star is nowhere to be seen in the clip.

The trailer for the latest ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ film has debuted, but one thing is noticeably absent - the franchise’s star Johnny Depp.

The next movie - subtitled ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ - will be the fifth in the series, and Johnny has starred as Jack Sparrow since the first film in 2003.

However, his character does not appear in the latest teaser video, which instead focuses on Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar.

He can be see asking where Jack is, telling Brenton Thwaites’ character Henry: “Find Sparrow for me and relay a message from Captain Salazar, and tell him, ‘Death will come straight for him.’”

Filming of the movie wrapped back in July 2015, five months after the production was delayed when Johnny required surgery for a hand injury.

The actor has hit headlines for a variety of reasons in recent months, most notably for his split, and subsequent divorce, from Amber Heard.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ is slated for release in May 2017. Watch the trailer above.
