Sparrow takes flight again

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (12A)

Twelve-year-old Henry Turner (Lewis McGowan) stows away on the wreck of the Flying Dutchman in order to be reunited with his father Will (Orlando Bloom).

"This is my fate. You must let me go," pleads Will, who is condemned to serve as captain of the watery vessel for eternity... unless his son can successfully track down the mythical Trident of Poseidon.

Nine years later, Will (now played by Brenton Thwaites) searches for the artefact's whereabouts on the island of St Martin in the Caribbean, where he meets plucky astronomer Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario).

She possesses a diary penned by Galileo Galilei, which contains clues to the hiding place of the trident.

The duo join forces and unexpectedly cross paths with Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).

He is being pursued by spectral pirate Captain Armando Salazar (Javier Bardem), who has escaped from the Devil's Triangle and intends to exact revenge, aided by Jack's old adversary, Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush).
