The opening sequence of Dead Men Tell No Tales finds young Henry (Lewis McGowan) rowing out to sea, tying a bag of rocks to his leg and plunging into the sea – where he lands on the deck of the sunken Flying Dutchman and we learn that he is the son of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).
From there we shift to Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and his crew robbing a bank – an effort that takes a hilarious path.
It’s a true pity that the rest of the movie couldn’t have been as inventive.
From The Maze to The Scorch, nothing comes easy to the Gladers – especially now that they’re also faced with the nastiness of WCKD on an even greater level.
Check first the new trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials after the jump. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens on September 18th.
