Johnny Depp, mermaids, Blackbeard in full “Pirates” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: They are calling it a trailer premiere, even though we’ve already seen a trailer, multiple clips and a Super Bowl spot. But the new teaser for “Pirates of the Caribbean” posted over on Yahoo Movies this morning does feature new footage and dig into plot points previously unrevealed.

We’re getting closer to the May 20 release date of Rob Marshall’s “Pirates” sequel, which casts series originals Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush (among others) in a fast-paced search for the Fountain of Youth.

We learn, via this new trailer, who has commandeered Sparrow’s old ship, the Black Pearl. We also learn who sends Jack on his new mission to find the Fountain of Youth, as well as which beautiful pirate (Penelope Cruz) will attempt to get in Jack’s way.

Spoilers float through this new trailer, so watch at your own risk. It’s still missing that “money” shot, the one that’s going to lure non-“Pirates” fans into theaters. But this gives us the fullest glimpse at “On Stranger Tides,” and likely will be the last meaty trailer we see before the sequel opens on May 20.
