For some reason i’m not as hyped for Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as I was for the previous movies. There’s no Kraken, no giant maelstrom and no impending Pirate battle (even though it only ended up being between two ships, the anticipation and expectation was still here). Nothing seems epic. However, on the flip side it seems to be returning to the style of The Curse of the Black Pearl, which many fans have been wanting.
Today Disney have released a new featurette introduced by director Rob Marshall which runs though the characters, both new and returning, and shows off some new footage.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is released May 20th, will include “zombies, cutthroats, mermaids and… Penelope Cruz” as Jack Sparrow and Barbossa sail to find the Fountain of Youth under the orders of King George II, only to find Blackbeard (Ian McShane) is after it too. Cruz plays Blackbeard’s daughter who is a woman from Sparrow’s past and he’s not sure if it’s love–or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s just using him to find the Fountain of Youth.
