The above is the trailer of NBC's new pirate show based on the character of BlackBeard, the legendary pirate king. It is called the 'Crossbones'. It feature John Malkovich as the pirate.
If you loved this year's previous pirate outing with Starz's 'Black Sails', then you are more or less likely to love this premise too. While some of the pirate characters have been already introduced to you in 'Black Sails' and the other pirate movies we got before, 'Crossbones' is more likely to follow only Blackbeard.
The trailer looks more bright and funnier than the dark 'Black Sails', but I wouldn't put it as a good thing here for 'Crossbones'. Lets wait and see if John can bring in fresh approach to this pirate saga. We will get to see it on May 30, when it premieres on NBC. Until then, wait patiently.
