Pirates 3 Is Going to be Epic - New Trailer Details!!

Out at ShoWest in Las Vegas I walked inside of the opening ceremony presentation the moment before the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 3 began, just perfectly in time. It was an experience to behold, as the screen was as large as the entire Broadway stage it was on and the projector was the most beautiful, brilliant picture I've ever seen (and I mean ever). Without further ado, here are a few details from the new trailer that I remember.
Update: The trailer has launched and you can watch it here!!
» Right in the middle of a fight on a ship, Orlando Bloom asks Keira Knightley "will you marry me?" upon which she replies about why he was asking now (in the middle of fighting).
» One of the final epic battles, as seen in the trailer, revolves (literally) around a huge whirlpool that forms in the middle of an ocean, where two ships, Davy Jones vs Johnny Depp, fight as they spin around. Tons of action scenes involving this.
» An awesome sword fight where three people, including Keira Knightley, are standing on a deck and people underneath them throw swords up through the slots and they catch them and start fighting.
» An awesome fight scene where Johnny Depp and Davy Jones are sword fighting one-on-one on the edge of a ship. This one is going to be amazing in the final film.
» Tia Dalma and Geoffrey Rush (aka Barbossa) are fairly prominent in the trailer, so it's no longer a plot reveal when Captain Barbossa appears in the trailer.
My response from the whole thing - Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is going to be EPIC. If you thought the $1 billion box office earnings last year were big, just wait until this May, when we've got Spider-Man 3, Shrek 3, and Pirates 3 all in one month. I can tell you this is going to be one intense battle. It's going to be Tobey Maquire one-on-one sword fighting Johnny Depp instead.
Everything in this trailer was just exciting and astounding. I was way more excited watching this trailer than watching the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 2. There were a lot more scenes within it, as it was a full 2 and a half minute trailer that will be fully unveiled early next week. However, I can confidently say that there are no worries for Disney - Pirates 3 is going to be an epic movie and have an epic opening. And this trailer will get you more excited than you've ever been.
