Disney has released the first (rather generic) teaser poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of its blockbuster fantasy action-adventure franchise.
Directed by Rob Marshall and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the movie is loosely based on Tim Powers’ 1988 novel On Stranger Tides, and centers on the quest for the legendary Fountain of Youth. Here's the official synopsis:
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).
The movie also features returning cast members Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack's longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, as well as Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens on May 20, 2011.
