Theatrical 'On Stranger Tides' Poster Features Heroic Jack Sparrow

March 14, 2011

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

We just recently got a look at a pretty cool banner featuring Jack Sparrow looking like a highseas gangster with both pistols drawn, but now the infamous pirate is taking a heroic stance at the forefront of the official theatrical poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. We've already seen a couple trailers for the fourth installment of the series, but this is the first bit of print marketing that features some of the lovely mermaids lounging on some rocks in the background as a pirate ship burns in the distance. Sure it's a standard glossy and obviously photoshopped poster, but I know some of you will love it. Enjoy!

Here's the official poster courtesy of IGN (click for a larger version):

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Poster

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.

It has some Leibovitz vibe...

He's too serious. I can only imagine Jack Sparrow as the drunk mad pirate ;)) I like it.

i would love to see whoever does these posters steer right into that idea, drawing up a really epic looking poster, like the above one, then just having Jack randomly dancing, swigging rum with a dead crab stuck to his foot in the background.

That would be just perfect and would show the true face of the PotC franchise, apart from the "epicness".

I've gotta say - this poster is actually kind of nice looking. It has an old-school hand-drawn kind of vibe to it. It reminds me of when posters were actually good. Yes, if only the Johny Depp in the front was drawn into it as well, instead of a photoshop, but besides that it's not bad.

Whoops Sorry. I ment Photoshopped. Sorry for the spelling error i made there.

Sean on Mar 15, 2011


Of course he's photoshopped. It's all photoshopped. What's wrong with that?

I wonder if this poster being released earlier today, means that there is a second movie trailer that will be released next, that is supposed to be released after the poster ?

Sean on Mar 15, 2011


Captain jack seems very serious, he really wants to find the fountain of youth. The poster looks great. Just waiting for the second trailer to come.
