First Trailer For Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Sets Sail
December is my favorite movie month. In addition to seeing the releases of some of the best films of the year, the ones aiming for Oscar glory, the 31 days prior to the new year are peppered with trailers for movies that will likely be the biggest hits of the following year: the summer blockbusters. We saw trailers for both Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Thor last week, and now we’ve got a little Jack Sparrow for you.
Disney has released the first trailer for the fourth installment in the Disney franchise, known formally as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Directed by Rob Marshall, replacing Gore Verbinski, who directed the first three films, the newest movie in the series sees the return of Johnny Depp as the Keith Richards-esque buccaneer as he and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) go on a search for the fountain of youth. What they don’t know, however, is that the infamous Blackbeard is also going after the treasure.
Check out the trailer below.
Obviously the big hope here is that this movie will be able to get the franchise back on track after two sequels that didn’t really live up to the original. As expected, Johnny Depp is his normal, witty self and just seems at home in Jack Sparrow’s skin. That said, nothing about the trailer really blew me away. Sure, it was nice to see Keith Richards in there, but it all seems a little too busy and the one-liners are more smile-inducing than laugh-inducing. The chemistry between Depp and Penelope Cruz seems fun, with a lot of back and forth (and a nice dose of sexual innuendo at 1:45).
What did you think of the trailer? Will this be the best Pirates of the Caribbean film since The Curse of the Black Pearl? Let me know in the comments section, and for a more detailed look at the Pirates 4 trailer check out more than 80, high-res screencaps here.
