Trailer Time: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Hi all…

So May 2011 will be a busy month for movies as it is every year. Entering the field on May 20 is the latest Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) film from Disney – Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. This time Sparrow is on a quest for the Fountain of Youth and somehow it involves Blackbeard (Ian McShane), another woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and zombies?

Unlike with the previous three movies, this trailer left me a bit cold. Not sure what’s missing, but perhaps not including Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley in this one removes a crucial element…

Here’s the synopisis:

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise-this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), 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.

The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth when a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane).

And here’s the trailer:

What do you think? Is this one worth watching?
