Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides First Teaser Trailer

sparrow300The San Diego Comic-Con audience attending the Tron Legacy press conference were given a surprise when a special teaser for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was shown.

Johnny Depp appeared as Captain Jack Sparrow and addressed the Comic-Con audience directly, typically with a bottle of rum in his hand. Depp appeared in full 3D (On Stranger Tides will be shot in 3D) and revealed a few titbits about the fourth instalment of the lucrative franchise.

He promised the audience that the film would feature “zombies, cutthroats, mermaids, and the vicious and vivacious Penelope Cruz” and that it would be an adventure that would require “a bloody map. Or a bloody Mary. Or both.” The film will see Captain Jack searching for the Fountain of Youth and confronting Blackbeard (Ian McShane).

Rob Marshall (Memoirs of a Geisha, Chicago) will direct On Stranger Tides (replacing Gore Verbinski) and Jerry Bruckheimer will once again produce the movie. Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom won’t be appearing in the film. It’s scheduled for release on May 20th, 2011. Check out the teaser below.
