First Skull & Crossbones Poster from 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4'
Another beloved character returning to theaters next summer is none other than Capt. Jack Sparrow. Disney has been shooting the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean for the last few months and is preparing to release it right in the thick of summer, as always. To start hyping a new sequel, Disney debuted a skull & crossbones teaser poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (even though that title isn't on it) found on IMPAwards. I added the skull & crossbones posters for the first two movies (At World's End
didn't have one) for nostalgic reference above the new poster. We expect to see a trailer fairly soon too, so stay tuned!
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow again as well as Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mermaid. The story in this is based on Tim Powers' book, which focuses heavily on the Fountain of Youth that was hinted at in the conclusion of At World's End. Chicago and Nine director Rob Marshall is helming this fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film and shooting starts this summer, primarily in Hawaii. If it is indeed being shot from the start in 3D, then it should be pretty cool to watch in 3D. It's still set for release on May 20th, 2011 next summer. Who's in?

Is it just me, or does that skull appear to be made of metal?

It does, Mark. But it still looks pretty cool.

Okay, can someone resolve this for me? I saw on imdb that Judi Dench is in this, but I haven't heard any of that on any website I trust. Is she in it?

Er ... silver IS a metal.

its the fountain of youth... so obviously someone drank from it. so how do you live forever... ADAMANTIUM BONES! (i am kidding by the way)

Actually the skull is crystal, not metal. Oh and that plot reveal at the end of three was red herring. It's actually about a lost magical kingdom. Only the one who finds said kingdom is to gain infinite wisdom, not eternal youth. Plus there's supposedly this rumor about some insane part about a refrigerator and an H-bomb, but that's just silly.

pirates 3 did have a skull poster: http://www.disneylandreport.com/disneyphotos/070528-pirates-of-the-caribbean-at-worlds-end.jpg I think it's a nice motif they got going on... nothing incredible but consistent and part of the strong brand. The metal is a solid choice.

#3 Actually there was a story about her on here last week, Shes playing some eccentric lady who owns a ship that Sparrow tries to rob while hes escaping. I just wanna see ole Swearengen as Blackbeard.

Poster is very encouraging......that this film will be as bad as the last two. I liked the first one, lets return to that, gentlemen.

I feel that the last 2 PIRATES movies are too convoluted for their own good. CURSE OF BLACK PEARL is a straightforward fantastical pirates lore adventure for broad demographics. The plot of the DEAD MAN'S CHEST & AT WORLD'S END is harder to follow than INCEPTION. Special fx & Johnny Depp goofing around is enough to get people to watch these movies. I personally would like a more serious depiction of sea pirates vs British Empire angle ala MASTER & COMMANDER with Russell Crowe as the chief pirate. I would PAY to see that movie.
