Lots of people behave recklessly in their late teens and early 20s. The world is full of opportunities, they feel invincible in the face of it all and are willing to take insane risks for the thrill of it. Then they grow up. They wise up a bit. They realize they’re not invincible and that actions do indeed have life long consequences.
With that in mind, if Captain Jack Sparrow is still an insane, reckless risk taker in his 40s and 50s, what was he like as a younger man? Apparently we’ll find out in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The new trailer for the fifth adventure of ‘ole Captain Jack spends a fair bit of its time establishing Sparrow’s past and one very notable, and fatal, encounter with Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. The whole movie isn’t a prequel, though. It’s obvious this part will just be setting the stage for why Salazar is still hunting Sparrow decades later, but it does look like it’ll shed a bit of light on the pirate’s earliest days of infamy.
Check it out.
