“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is written by “Pirates” veterans Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Barry Waldman, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and John DeLuca.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” sails into theatres around the world in May 2011. Official website: Disney.com/Pirates. “Like” Pirates on Facebook: www.facebook.com/PiratesoftheCaribbean

According to THR, the film centers on a young kid who dreams of building the perfect lowrider: “When he finds fortune and fame, the local bad ass wants a piece of him, and he questions his pursuit of the American dream.” Cheo Hodari Coker (Notorious) will write the script based on an idea by producer Brian Grazer (Robin Hood).
De Montreuil is an up and comer from Peru. His Máncora was nominated for the grand jury prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, and his sci-fi short film The Raven made some some waves in industry and internet alike earlier this year. Hit the jump to check it out for yourself.

While I rarely post studio provided interviews, when it’s Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, I make an exception. Also, the press junket for The Tourist was in Paris the other day, and since we didn’t get invited, this is the only way you can see Jolie and Depp talk about the movie. While both video interviews are very brief, they each talk about their characters, working with each other, and director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck.
But what I really love about Depp’s interview is that he obviously recorded it while on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. You can tell because he’s wearing eye liner and his Jack Sparrow gold teeth. Also, unlike most EPK interviews which are done in a generic location, this one looks like they recorded it in Depp’s trailer. If you’re a fan of Johnny Depp, you’ll dig it. Hit the jump to watch:
Finally, you can watch 5 movie clips and some behind the scenes footage from The Tourist here.
