As if the first look at Keith Richards as Jack Sparrow’s father, Captain Teague, in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides wasn’t enough news today, we now get treated to our second clip from the upcoming summer blockbuster from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer.
This time around, it’s the film’s introduction of the ruthless Blackbeard, the pirate all pirates fear, portrayed by Ian McShane. Finding himself on board the Queen Anne’s Revenge courtesy of former flame and daughter of Blackbeard, Angelica (Penelope Cruz), Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) decides that the best course of action would be staging a mutiny, a tactic he all too familiar with (albeit generally on the other end). That is, until the Captain decides to weigh in on the matter.
… ‘I can name fingers and point names.’
In the next clip, ‘King’s Men,’ Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), now a member of the British Royal Navy, informs his appointed crew, including Mr. Gibbs, that they are headed for Whitecap Bay in search of mermaids. Which of course is bound to entice any sailor, no?
In Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (May 20), Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth when a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane).
