Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail May 26.
In the weeks leading up the blockbuster’s theatrical release, Javier Bardem, Orlando Bloom, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites have traveled the globe to promote the fifth installment in the popular franchise. The film’s press tour kicked off May 11 at Shanghai Disney Resort and marked the first time a Hollywood film premiered in Mainland China. A screening was held at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre at Disneytown, and they later stopped by Shanghai Disneyland’s Treasure Cove, the first pirate-themed land at a Disney park.
Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg joined the actors on the adventure.
Next up was a May 14 visit to Disneyland Paris—part of the theme park’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Actress Kaya Scodelario joined the cast and crew outside Sleeping Beauty Castle.
The group set sail for the United States and attended the Hollywood premiere May 18. E! News was on the red carpet, where Rush called the movie an “epic tale,” adding, “To have Orlando back was great.” Bardem, meanwhile, said it was “great” to work with Depp: “You never know what he will bring!” Bruckheimer, who started the series in 2003, praised Depp’s “wonderful” return as Captain Jack Sparrow, telling E! News, “We’d love to do more if we can get him back!”
