'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Banner is Packing Heat!
Though we've already seen a couple of trailers for the fourth installment in this swashbuckling franchise, the most exciting news on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, from my own perspective, is the addition of Hans Zimmer and Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela joining forces to compose the score for the movie. Now we have a promo banner for this that features Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow with both guns drawn like a high seas gangster. Meanwhile, the sea behind him is full of fire and chaos as pirate ships and their crews battle for their lives. I can't say it gets me excited for the sequel, but it is a cool banner.
Here's the new banner courtesy of Empire (click for a larger version):
Jack Sparrow (Depp) and Barbossa (Rush) embark on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth hinted at the end of At World's End, only to learn that Blackbeard (McShane) and his daughter are after it, too.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is directed by Oscar nominated director Rob Marshall, whose only previous directing credits are Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha and the musical Nine. The screenplay was once again written by franchise regulars Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, based on Tim Power's book On Stranger Tides. Disney is bringing Pirates of the Caribbean 4 to theaters in 3D starting on May 20th next summer.
