Yahoo! Movies has premiered the first clip from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the sequel that just may return the multibillion-dollar Disney franchise to its earlier glory (i.e. The Curse of the Black Pearl). Titled "Palace Escape," the sequence is pretty straightforward, with Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) evading Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), now a privateer in the court of George II, and the king's guards.
Directed by Rob Marshall and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the movie also stars Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Kevin R. McNally, Sam Claflin and Keith Richards. Here’s the official description:
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. 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).
