Captain Jack Sparrow is back with the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released in the United States, China and other parts of the world on May 26.

Johnny Depp, who plays the antihero Jack Sparrow, arrived at the Shanghai Disney Resort on May 11, accompanied by other members of the cast, including Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom for the movie's global premiere in China. Many fans of the 14-year-old franchise waited outside the Walt Disney Theater at the resort to catch a glimpse of the stars.

Dead Men Tell No Tales is a new story of the high seas infused with fantasy, humor and action.

With the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003, came the dawn of Jerry Bruckheimer's most successful franchise, one of the most successful film series in the history of Disney Studios.

The first film was followed by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006), Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011). The four films have together made more than $3.7 billion so far.

In the latest film, Jack Sparrow feels the heat when Captain Salazar, played by Bardem, and his ghost sailors escape Devil's Triangle in a bid to kill him and the other pirates.
