Theatrical 'On Stranger Tides' Poster Features Heroic Jack Sparrow

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):
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.
