Orlando Bloom praises less ‘big special effects’ in ‘Pirates 5’ which is a ‘throwback’ to the first film

Orlando Bloom has joined the promotion for the upcoming film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the franchise.

“I think they can except the best of what we had at the beginning,” the LOTR actor, who is back as the beloved character Will Turner, said at the premiere of his latest film Unlocked.

“I saw the movie just the other day, and it’s like a throwback to the first movie,” he continued. “It’s less big special effects and more of like a story that you can get on board with. I think, you know, if there is still an appetite for Pirates movies then this probably is a throwback to that first one, which I always thought was the best one.”

That may be a surprising statement based on the CGI used in the footage revealed in teaser trailers.

Johnny Depp returns as Jack Sparrow and Pirates 5 will be focused on his comedic timing as the details of the adventure unfold. Joining the cast are new characters Henry Turner and Carina, played by Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales also stars Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, a maniacal ghost pirate bent on revenge against Sparrow. Geoffrey Rush reprises his role as Captain Barbossa, Kevin McNally as Gibbs, and Stephen Graham as Scrum.

Keira Knightley also returns, likely for a very short appearance as Elizabeth, a central figure in the first three Pirates films.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released in theaters on May 26, 2017.
