The fifth installment of the swashbuckling adventure series is finally here. Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge releases in cinemas this Friday after a long break of six years. The series has made its place in Hollywood for being highly entertaining and just pure fun. Nobody comes close to replacing Captain Jack Sparrow, but in case you're craving more adventure, here are five movies like Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge that you can watch:
One of Johnny Depp's greatest roles that he has done behind a whole lot of makeup, the Native American warrior, Tonto, and the pirate Jack Sparrow, also have the love for witty quips in common. Although he shares the screen space with Armie Hammer, this is a sure favorite if you enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean.
The director of this animated flick is none other than Gore Verbinski, who directed the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and also the spiritually similar, The Lone Ranger. Johnny Depp voices the chameleon who becomes a sheriff in this quirky Western that's both fast-paced and uproariously funny.
If you're looking for another memorable character played by Johnny Depp, it has to be Edward Scissorhands. This is a gothic masterpiece directed by Tim Burton, who went on to work with Depp many times, in movies like Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This is a movie that's guaranteed to pull you in.
This is another movie of adventure perfectly blended with stunning special effects. It also doesn't miss out on the humor that we love the Pirates of the Caribbean for. Arthur might have been born to be a king, but he doesn't take himself too seriously, which works well for this adventurous tale.

Before Jack Sparrow went looking for treasure on the high seas, a young adventurer Rick O'Connell was dodging traps in Egyptian pyramids. With fantasy elements, adventure, and action, this was the series that made Brendan Fraser a well-deserved star. The new Mummy featuring Tom Cruise is yet another reason to revisit this nostalgic film.
