First Look: New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 4’ featurette

Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Pirates 4 - Pay Off poster - AustraliaAhoy there, mateys! Capn’ Jack is back, and this time he has a lady that is challenging his attention span. Disney has just released a brand-new featurette from the forthcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides.

The clip features interviews with the cast and crew, and concentrates largely on the relationship between Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and Angelica (Penélope Cruz). We also get to see a few more clips from the film, which we thankfully only have to wait a few more weeks for. There isn’t a whole lot of new footage in there, but this is looking more promising than the original clips that were released a few weeks back had previously indicated. Fingers crossed on this one.

Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides is the first of a rumoured planned series of sequels following the end of the first trilogy with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

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 adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope 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 legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious 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 Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
