'Black Sails' Trailer Features Fighting Pirates, Explosions And Sex (VIDEO)

Starz has released a new trailer for Michael Bay's "Black Sails" that is filled with fighting pirates, sex scenes and explosions.

"Black Sails'" first eight-episode season will be set in 1715, 20 years before Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island." The series will follow Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), the most notorious pirate captain of his day, and a young addition to his crew, John Silver (Luke Arnold).

Together, they fight against the British Royal Navy for the survival of New Providence Island, a debauched, lawless paradise filled with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers.

"Black Sails" premieres on Starz in January of 2014.
