Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales



The terrifying Captain Salazar and his deadly crew of ghost pirates are stalking the seas. Captain Jack Sparrow's only hope of survival is in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants total control over the ocean.



Australia was transformed into the Caribbean port town of Saint Martin for the scene in which Jack Sparrow's gang accidentally pulls not only the vault, but the entire bank off its foundation during a heist gone wrong. Set extensions, destruction, and thousands of palm trees were just some of the elements rendered to complete the sequence. Following that, Jack experiences even closer calls when a fully CG guillotine swings a little too close for comfort before eventually exploding and freeing our favorite pirate. Savvy?
