There are just two weeks left until Black Sails airs its series premiere on Starz. To help get you excited, the network has released a new trailer for this upcoming pirate series with Toby Stephens starring as pirate captain Flint in a story set 20 years before Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale Treasure Island. Flint takes on a new member of his crew, the young John Silver (Luke Arnold) as they fight to survive in New Providence Island. Take a look at the latest footage before tuning in Saturday, January 25 at 9 PM ET on Starz.
Flint (Toby Stephens), the most brilliant and feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver (Luke Arnold). Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day - a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.
Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) and Luke Arnold (Broken Hill) are joined by Zach McGowan (Shameless) as rival Captain Charles Vane; Toby Schmitz (The Pacific) as Jack Rackham, Vane's right hand; Hannah New (Maleficent) as Eleanor Guthrie, a determined young woman who runs the smuggling operation on New Providence; Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Strike Back, Hotel Rwanda) as Mr. Scott, Eleanor's retainer and right hand, Jessica Parker Kennedy (The Secret Circle, 50/50) as Max, a tortured young prostitute who sees the dark side of New Providence; Mark Ryan (Transformers, The Prestige) as Gates, Captain Flint's Quartermaster and most senior member of his crew, Clara Paget (Fast & Furious 6) as the beautiful but cold-blooded Anne Bonny and Tom Hopper (Merlin) as Billy Bones, boatswain of Flint's ship.
