New Poster and TV Spot for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Feature Mermaids
04.05.11 by BJSprecher
With superhero movie news taking over the headlines in the wake of the recent WonderCon comic book and popular arts convention in San Francisco, Disney wants to make sure that you don't forget about its loveable anti-hero, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), who returns to the big screen this summer in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
To promote the movie, Disney has released a new teaser poster that features the latest addition to the Pirates mythos, mermaids—a rather boring new international poster has also turned up, but it only depicts burning pirate ships on rough waters—and has also aired the first new TV spot since the Super Bowl. The new TV spot contains snippets of new footage and also explains for the first time why mermaids are an essential part of Capt. Jack's quest to find the fabled Fountain of Youth.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, and directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago). Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Kevin R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey and Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush also star.
