I am home sick with a cold today and I am not happy about it at all. Managed to pull myself off the couch long enough to check my inbox for goodies from the studios and there are a few worth noting. First of all is the extended sneak peak at Pirates of the Caribbean On Strangers Tides. The 10 second spot the studio sent over before superbowl felt rushed and incomplete but this new 60second sneak peak makes me think I might want to take back some of my comments about the franchise having run its course. Zombies, Mermaids and Blackbeard? Oh yes please!
Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (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 formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
