10 Best 2017 Movie Trailers

10. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

Disney

Release Date: May 26, 2017

The Trailer: Creepy, mysterious and with a tinge of humour - it's everything we loved about the first Pirates Of The Caribbean, in the form of a bitesized teaser.

It was a bold move to include nary a glimpse of Captain Jack Sparrow, but hopefully this is an indication that the series is attempting to move away from the character and make Pirates something more than just another vehicle for Johnny Depp's quirky, played-out archetype.

The Movie: Helmed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (who have a lot of experience working with water thanks to Kon-Tiki) Dead Men Tell No Tales is shaping up to be much more character-driven than the action-driven prior installments, if the directors previous work is any indication.

Still, expect all the usual pieces of the Pirates formula; a lost treasure (Poseidon's Trident), an undead army with an eccentric pirate captain (Javier Bardem's Captain Salazar) and plenty of banter between Sparrow, Barbossa, Gibbs and (gasp!) Will Turner. Yep. He's back. Cue another unnecessary, overly-soppy romantic subplot.
