Twitter seems to be the preferred platform for movie executives to communicate with fans regarding their movies.
Now, it seems like it is Jerry Bruckheimer‘s turn to tease his fans. On 22nd April, the producer took to Twitter to release the first official still from his highly anticipated movie, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales“.
Bruckheimer tweeted a photo of Johnny Depp with the caption:

The picture showed Depp donning his traditional Captain Jack Sparrow attire with a worried look on his face. His discomfort and nervousness was well justified as 2 henchmen were shown to be tying him up.
The 5th instalment of the series was initially planned for a 2015 release. However, fans of the series had to wait as the budget and the scripting problems caused the shooting to be stalled. Principal photography began on February 2014, with the movie expected to hit the cinemas on 7th July 2017.
The official synopsis of the film is as follows:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
The movie is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, with Jeff Nathanson in the scriptwriting department. Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom are set to return to the sequel.
