A TV Spot from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’


Mermaids, curses, treasures and pirates, oh my! That’s what this new ad for the fourth installment of the “Pirates of The Caribbean” is made of.

Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” coming to a shore near you on May 20. This time, Black Beard’s daughter Angelica (Penelope Cruz) will accompany him as they search for the Fountain of Youth.

I’ve been a fan of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” since the first one came out in 2003, and have truly enjoyed Depp’s take on the lackadaisical but good-natured pirate. However, I confess that part of the draw for me outside of the amazing action sequences was the love story of Will and Elizabeth, and neither Keira Knightley nor Orlando Bloom will be reprising their roles (as far as we know).

That fact made me wonder what would be the point of doing yet another “Pirates” movie, but now that I have watched it, this commercial has shown me the fun for Captain Sparrow has only just begun.

Geoffrey Rush is back as Barbossa and Ian McShane will be playing Black Beard himself. Johnny Depp is in top form as our favorite charming rogue, and Cruz seems more then up to the challenge of being the new female lead.

The “Pirates of The Caribbean” franchise seems to be reinventing itself with its latest version and if this trailer is anything to go by, I’ll happily sail aboard for the ride. Will you?

    Yes the Pirates franchise was successful for many reasons, but the loss of some of the main cast members does put a different spin on the movie, but the main reason people fell in love with Pirates was Johnny Depp and his immaculate performance as Captain Jack Sparrow.

    I just can’t seem to get excited about this movie. At Worlds End was pretty bad.

    If Rob Marshall brings the same editing and shooting sensibilities to this as he brought to Chicago and Nine then the action is going to be really generic.
