Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Synopsis Expanded

The first trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides starring Johnny Depp a couple weeks ago was supported by numerous filmmaker interviews. From those interviews we learned about the film’s three acts (in England, at sea and in the jungle) as well as other previously unknown plot specifics.

The Pirates of the Caribbean 4 synopsis floating around for months has been vague in describing the plot’s points other than there’s a hunt for the Fountain of Youth. Disney must have realized the synopsis was lackluster after the trailer and interviews when writing and distributing this updated blurb.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D. 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.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sets sail in theaters everywhere on May 20, 2011.
