About Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humour 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 (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.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens across Canada on May 20, but 140 lucky Virgin Mobile Members will
get the exclusive chance to see the movie first at advance screenings
on May 18! To check out more details about the film, visit http://disney.go.com/pirates/ or Facebook.com/WaltDisneyStudiosCanada. The full trailer can also be viewed on Virgin Mobile's Facebook page
