Our Flag Means Death Release Date, Cast, Story

Most of us have been fantasizing about leaving our occupations and just going on some period adventure. The same was done by a wealthy lad Stede Bonnet to pursue his occupation in piracy. Despite having no experience as a pirate, he voyaged the sea by ditching everything, including the wife and kids.

Our Flag Means Death Trailer

The official trailer was released on January 18, 2022, on YouTube by the official channel of HBO Max. The trailer starts with Stede Bonnet conversing with his crew members to motivate them but doesn’t receive a satisfactory response.

He then asks his crew to look fierce as they are about to approach a vessel, as told by one of the crew members operating the ship.

 Then, in the voice of Steve Bonnet, it is told that every pirate captain has a different method of treating the pirate crew. Piracy has not been a good occupation since traditions.

He expresses his thoughts of being a pirate and a gentleman simultaneously. The background has a gist of all the adventures and fights in the movie.

In the trailer, Stede Bonnet is viewed as an unprofessional pirate due to his gentle behavior, which is not a characteristic of a pirate.

The show’s title has been placed towards the end, followed by the logo of HBO Max showing the starting price of the subscription plan. 


Our Flag Means Death Storyline

The story is set in the year 1717. It features the adventures of Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby), an affluent landlord. He encounters a midlife crisis and gives up his pampered aristocratic life full of privileges for the sake of becoming a pirate. 

The series is said to be based on a true story of the pirate’s life named Bonnet. The close alliance of the pirate captain is seen with Blackbeard (Taika Waititi).

In addition, a large crew is shown to be hired by Bonnet to perform all the activities pirates do. Smithsonian Magazine claims Bonnet was an infamous pirate in the early 18th century throughout the Eastern Seaboard and Caribbean.

The Magazine highlighted the unique reason that made Bonnet notable in the history of pirates as a negligible experience of sailing and having no prominent reasons for being a pirate rather than some marital issues.

He simply decides not to live a life full of wealth and splendor. According to the series, Bonnet had a ship named ‘Revenge’ and used to seek guidance from Blackbeard. Soon, Blackbeard concludes that Bonnet lacks experience but can still take over his ship and crew.
