     December 8, 2010


Conveniently sandwiched in between the first footage from the film and its upcoming trailer debut, some new images from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides have landed online.  One of the images, which features Captain Jack Sparrow being led away by friendly persuasion, comes courtesy of a recent on-set interview in which Depp said of his character:

There’s a side to Captain Jack that’s a wheeler-dealer, where he can talk his way out of anything, get out of any situation. But there is also a side to him that can’t stand for grave injustice.

To check out the two new images, as well as a few quotes from co-writer Terry Rossio, hit the jump.  In addition to Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides also stars Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, and Geoffrey Rush.  The film, directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago), hits 3D theaters on May 20th, 2011. [Update: Disney has released four more photos from the film.  Check them out after the jump]

It’s a completely different beast, the three previous films are a trilogy, with an intricate, interwoven tapestry of characters. I would call this a stand-alone type of story.

Rossio goes on to discuss the lone image which inspired his writing on the film:

Jack Sparrow dancing with somebody on deck. More of a romantic period dance. A ship in the moonlight, and Jack Sparrow having to dance to maybe seduce somebody. So you write that on a card and say, ‘Why is Jack Sparrow dancing?’

Finally, the co-writer offers some insight into the psyche of Penelope Cruz’s character, Angelica:

Jack has perhaps not only met his equal, but also found that she is a kindred spirit who is a con artist at heart as well. She’s not only a romantic interest, but an equal and effective adversary.
