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).
