Has Jack Sparrow met his match with astronomer Carina Smyth?
Kaya Scodelario ain’t afraid of no ghosts. The Maze Runner actress gets a larger spotlight in the new teaser for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. “I’m a woman of science. I choose not to believe in ghosts,” her character, Carina Smyth, proclaims in the face of a phantom army chasing after Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow.
The footage, released across Disney’s Facebook and Twitter feeds, glimpses more of Captain Jack’s drunken antics, as well as recycled looks at Javier Bardem’s vengeful ghost Captain Salazar. “Are all pirates this stupid?” Carina asks, to which the crew agrees, yes, they are.
Carina, an astronomer, plays a part in Jack’s mission to track down the mystical artifact known as the Trident of Poseidon. With it, he’ll have total command of the seas and the power to stop Salazar from taking him from the land of the living. Watch the new teaser below.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also features Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Stephen Graham as Scrum, Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Brenton Thwaites as a Royal Navy sailor Henry, and Golshifteh Farahani as the sea witch Shansa.
The film, directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, will open in theaters on May 26.
