First Look: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' teaser poster arrives
Death becomes Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow
In advance of a May 2011 release date, Disney has released the first teaser/character poster for the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, "On Stranger Tides."
The flick -- and the image -- puts Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow front-and-center, with a smiling skull of his visage glaring out from the latter. The poster reveals little else aside the date and the fact that it'll drop in 3-D and in IMAX.
Perhaps its commentary that Sparrow is a mere mortal and will remain so, unless he successfully tracks down the Fountain of Youth. That's only part of the plot for "Tides": Sparrow also gets a new love interest in a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) re-emerges in his life.
"[Sparrow's] not sure if itâ€™s loveâ€”or if sheâ€™s a ruthless con artist whoâ€™s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anneâ€™s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesnâ€™t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past," reads the official one-sheet.
Geoffrey Rush is back as Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jackâ€™s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs. Sam Claflin will play a "stalwart missionary" and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is out May 20, 2011.
