One of the most anticipated films is the next chapter in the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. News for the film has been rolling in the last couple of months starting with the teaser poster released back in November.
Just a few hours ago, Entertainment Tonight got their hands on a few early clips of the fourth film which is set to release on May 20, 2011. The film is being directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and stars the one and only Johnny Depp, the beautiful Penelope Cruz (worked alongside Johnny Depp in the film Blow), Ian McShane (Deadwood), and of course Geoffrey Rush.
The full synopsis of the film according to Shockya is as follows.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise –this time in Disney Digital 3D(TM). In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and 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.
Rush reprises his role as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally returns as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs. Claflin stars as a stalwart missionary, while Berges-Frisbey is transformed into a mysterious mermaid.
