“Mermaids, zombies and Blackbeard.” Oh my.
Fans can expect all this and more if the teaser trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is any indication. Also, expect a lot of talk about a Fountain. The Fountain of Youth to be exact. The word is said no less than five times throughout the two and a half minute clip.
]]>Johnny Depp is back as Jack Sparrow (“There should be captain in there somewhere”), pop culture’s favorite pirate. In the trailer we get our first taste of Penelope Cruz as a dangerous woman from Jack’s past, Angelica, who also may be after — you guessed it — the Fountain of Youth. Angelica seems to have a knack for sword-fighting and yelling in Spanish. The new big bad appears to be Blackbeard (Ian McShane), who Jack calls “the pirate all pirates fear.” He, too, is after — say it with us now — the Fountain of Youth. Also, look for another appearance from Jack’s dad (a.k.a. Keith Richards!) who warns his son that the fountain will test him. We won’t lie, we kind of miss Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, but the trailer actually looks pretty fun and entertaining; exactly what a summer blockbuster should be. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” hits theaters May 20, 2011.
