Walt Disney Pictures has released another poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth adventure in their flagship Pirates franchise. This one loses the mermaids, relegates the ships to the far background and brings Captain Jack Sparrow to the fore. This character poster is the first of 4, with Penelope Cruz’s Angelica tomorrow, followed by Geoffrey Rush’s Barbossa on Thursday, and finally Ian McShane’s villainous Blackbeard on Friday. If they all look like this one I’m not complaining.
The movie is a direct sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and finds Captain Jack Sparrow hunting for the Fountain of Youth. Of course it’s not going to be an easy task, and when a girl from his past returns he finds himself on the Queen Anne’s Revenge, a nice ship, shame it’s run by Blackbeard.
The film stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Kevin R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Sam Claflin, and Geoffrey Rush. So lots of talent there. Hopefully it will rekindle the magic of the first one, rather than be as tired as the last two.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in Ireland May 18th, 2 whole days before the US.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
