Johnny Depp teases fourth “Pirates” in Comic-Con clip, now online

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: More Comic-Con footage makes its way to the Web, rewarding those who couldn’t make the fest but still want to feast their eyes on the valuable goodies studio marketing teams prepped to whip up frenzied fans.

This morning, it’s the Disney clip featuring Johnny Depp in costume as Capt. Jack Sparrow, teasing fans about the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” In the barely two-minute clip, Depp tells his captive audience that he’s recruiting a crew “to undertake a voyage to the Fountain of Youth.” He promises zombies, cutthroats, and mermaids. Of course, he also says the whole thing is a big lie. Watch the whole clip here.

I’m still not sure what to make of this fourth “Pirates,” the first not to be directed by Gore Verbinski. (“Chicago” and “Nine” director Rob Marshall, instead, is at the helm.) A trip with Depp in Sparrow’s shoes could be enjoyable, but the last “Pirates” seemed to be dragging the franchise across the finish line, and key players — like Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom — stayed behind as this production set sail. Still, fresh creative juices might be just what the “Pirates” series needed, and I am encouraged by news that Geoffrey Rush is coming back to play Barbossa.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is targeting a May 20, 2011 release date.
