Sneak Peek of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in New ET Exclusive
12.04.10 by BJSprecher
The first footage of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides won't be seen until the trailer debuts on December 17th when Tron: Legacy opens, but popular entertainment news program Entertainment Tonight has scored an exclusive sneak peek of the fourth chapter in the popular Disney franchise. The nearly six-minutes-long exclusive offers many behind-the-scenes shots of different scenes being filmed in various exotic locales, from quiet moments to big action sequences, and features a look at new addition Penelope Cruz in costume as Angelica. The video also shows superstar Johnny Depp performing his own stunts as Captain Jack Sparrow, including the shooting of a scene where he "surfs" atop moving carriages as they streak through the streets of the Greenwich, England, set. Super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer also provides some commentary, discussing how Pirates has helped to transform Depp from a dramatic actor into an action hero.
On Stranger Tides was written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, the writers of the previous three Pirates movies, and follows Capt. Jack as he is hoodwinked by Angelica into helping her father, Blackbeard (Ian McShane), search for the fabled Fountain of Youth. The movie was directed by Rob Marshall (Nine) and also stars Sam Claflin, Kevin R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey and Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush.
