Franchise nostalgia start your engines. Pirates of the Caribbean has not seen a movie since 2007 and many believed that the franchise would never see another movie with all of the mixed emotions of the second and third movies. I, myself, find them easily acceptable, but nothing too amazing praise about. The first one will always hold a place in my heart. But let’s talk about this teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which you can watch after the jump and look for the movie May 20, 2011! [Update 1/2: I just nabbed over 150 screenshots of the trailer too!]
Whisperings and rumors of Captain Jack Sparrow’s next adventure to find the Fountain of Youth was teased this weekend at the San Diego Comic Con for the new movie Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Even if it weren’t not true, you wouldn’t be interested in viewing would you? He proposes the dangers of zombies, cutthroats, mermaids, and of course Penelope Cruz. I am pretty excited to see this movie, unlike others who were left with a bad taste in their mouths after the last two films, but I can side with that as well. That doesn’t make me run away from the franchise, as I still love the world that Jerry Bruckheimer created in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Nothing new was really revealed in this teaser other than that it was presented in 3D at the con, but was released in 2D online obviously. The new movie is being shot in 3D so that will give new depth to the pirate world.
