Disney released an extended preview of the next Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides tonight, and though we’ve seen Jack Sparrow do his thing, this trailer has a couple of things that have me wanting to go to the theater and see the flick.

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (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 legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious 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.

    I’m going to this purely to watch Ian McShane, Johnny Depp, Kevin McNally and Geoffrey Rush chew the scenery. That alone is worth the price of admission.

    I’m also glad I’m finally going to see a Pirates movie without Orloomdo Bland or Keira “Blue Steel” Knightley.

  2. Both my daughters have been “Pirates” fans since the first film came out and they remain so even as young adults. I’m interested in seeing the “greatest fictional pirate” meet the “greatest real pirate” on film. Being from North Carolina we vacationed a lot over the years at Morehead City and Beaufort, where Edward Teach actually lived for awhile while he was in the good graces of the Royal Governor and the Blackbeard legacy is pretty strong in that area of the state (The East Carolina University mascot is “The Pirate”). This is looking like a film that the three of us will get to watch as a family and have some fun.
