"Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, On Stranger Tides is the fourth entry in the blockbuster franchise which has already reaped $2.7 billion in worldwide box office from the previous three films, and the first to be filmed and presented in Disney Digital 3DTM.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise-this time in Disney Digital 3DTM. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope 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 Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
"Opening across the Philippines on May 2011, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures."
