The Johnny Cash Song In The 'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' Trailer Is An Oldie But Goodie
The Super Bowl isn't just for football fans. Movie lovers look forward to the big game to see what trailers will drop during the Super Bowl's coveted commercial slots. Disney released a new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer, but that wasn't the only franchise to get a new teaser. So what song was in the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 trailer released during the Super Bowl?
That would be none other than "Ain't No Grave (Can Hold My Body Down)" by Johnny Cash. The lyrics work well for the fifth installment in the Disney franchise, as Cash sings: "There ain't no grave can hold my body down/When I hear that trumpet sound I'm gonna rise right out of the ground."
The movie series is based off the Disneyland ride of the same name and centers around pirates (namely Johnny Depp), some of whom have the ability to rise from the grave. In this obvious way, the song is a perfect pick for the latest TV spot for the film.
Oddly, this is not the first Super Bowl trailer to utilize a Johnny Cash tune. A FOX tribute used the spoken word song "Ragged Old Flag" to dramatic effect earlier in the evening.
