Here be the first trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!

Published at: Dec. 13, 2010, 3:21 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The big launch party at Disneyland was this morning, I believe, and as luck would have it the internets (meaning us lowly land-lubbers) get to partake without too much of a delay. The trailer is below and even comes with a welcome by Capn' Jack hisself... which is a reworking of his Comic-Con shout-out, but we'll let that part slide.

Don't know about you salty seamen, but this Captain loves the world of Pirates of the Caribbean and is happy to see Depp back in the role... and I can't wait to see more of Ian McShane as Blackbeard!

    First?

    by DarthDooku

    Wow, came out earlier than I expected!

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 3:24 p.m. CST

    This trailer looks almost as shitty as the new AICN layout.

    Hehe, just kidding. I didn't even watch the trailer.

    I think it'll be a lot of fun, especially since we get some new people on board and dumped some of the older ones.

    Looks about as fun as the first

    by eric haislar

    So glad they got rid of the dead weight of the last two films. Lets hope it is good. I do enjoy this character.

    did this work?

    I don't understand...

    by Shadow16nh

    ...why it was necessary for AITC to go dark for an entire week (without redirecting to an "under-construction" page, mind you) to produce this slight variation of the already existing no-frills layout AITC already had.

    I'm sold.

    by RandySavage

    I think it will be fun the see the pirates in London as opposed to only the New World. Although, the cross "tear drop" scar is a little distracting on Depp's face. What could give a scar like that?

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Could be good. Ian McShane is a great choice for Blackbeard

    by Sardonic

    And dropping some of weight from earlier films, along with the over the top magical shit (monsters and such, even though there are apparently zombies and mermaids in this one) should be an improvement.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 3:35 p.m. CST

    looks boring

    by judge dredds fresh undies

    Looks dull. I only saw the first one and wasnt particularly enamoured with it, but I thought there might be at least the odd interesting visual in this trailer...

    Replying to Talkbacks . . .

    by kevinwillis.net

    You do understand that's just to get you to the Quick Talkback Form, not for threaded replies, which aren't going to happen any time this decade, right?<br><br> That having been said, may I pimp my 100% free AICN Extra Stuff Talkback Mod (for Google Chrome or Firefox running Greasemonkey)? It restores some of the old formatting (while preserving new features), adds "Ignore" and "Hilite" buttons (for naughty and nice talkbackers, respectively), puts the title of the article in the actual window or tab title (which makes it easier to organize, if you keep multiple AICN articles open at one time). There's a preference to turn moderator comments pink, to reverse the sort of order of the talkbacks (if you would prefer them last to first--doesn't move the Quick Talkback form, though) . . . AND it keeps a running count, so each comment, in the same field as the date and time (put back where it's supposed to go) features something like "20 of 36", so you know what number a comment is. It might not sound like much, but when you're participating in an ongoing conversation, it's kind of handy.<Br><br> Oh! You also have the option to automatically expand all the talkbacks, so you don't have to click them open one by one or click the "Expand All" button or anything like that. They're just automatically open when you hit the talkback.<br><br> And it converts BRs and Ps and HRs into actual formatting, for those running the mod.<br><br> http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/92278

    Penelope and Blackbeard look awesome

    the rest of it looks like more of the same, but hopefully it'll entertain me.

    I've never cared about the POTC storylines.

    by sweeneydave

    But I sure have a lot of fun in the world. Each POTC movie has successfully drawn me in to the pirate world for a time to hang out and have fun - just like the Disney park ride does. I really do love it.

    penelope cruz you say? i'm in.

    Ian McShane + Pirate?

    by Ben_Richards_Bomb_Collar

    No need to say more. Plus no more wasted time on the Orlando/Kiera plot lines (Oh noes, they got separated ... again.) Though, I am sad to see no more Davy Jones and his ridiculously awesome CG.

    Initial Reaction

    by Dreamfasting

    My initial reaction was an overwhelming sense of "been there, seen that". But given the bazillions that parts 2/3 made, I guess there's a market for it.

    Cataclysm

    by Wulfgangg

    Dunno if anybody who plays World of Warcraft is reading this but there is a nice little video for one of the areas in the game which is pretty much a copy of the scene from Pirates 2 when Orlando Bloom is in the water and sees the Kraken for the first time underneath the ship.

    Man

    by pushthebuttonmax

    Seeing the title hit the skull at the end of this trailer, along with the iconic music just made me want to cheer! The last movie was bloated, I don't give a shit, I love these movies and look forward to seeing this one. And no Bloom! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Looks much better than the second 2.

    by beastie

    Which I enjoyed mildly, but not to the extent of the first one.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Bloom and Knightley were good in the first one

    by David Cloverfield

    I actually really liked the Will character in the first one, and he had great chemistry with Depp. But his and Keira's arcs were completed. They may have had a cameo in the sequels, and that would've been enough, but no, they wanted to make Sea Star Wars and brought them back, making half the movie about silly soap opera bullshit, spending time on them doing irrelevant things. Pirate stand alones are the way to go here. Looking forward to this.

    by estacado1

    They went from an English lady who speaks proper English with an English accent to a Spanish woman whom you can't understand when she speaks English. From a skinny young lady to a plump old woman. And I don't see any cleavage in there.

    Decidedly average in every respect.

    by Gabba-UK

    Love Depp as Captain Jack and McShane is always good value but there was not one stand out moment in that whole trailer. Blu-ray rental at best.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:10 p.m. CST

    "Dead weight" seems to be the buzz word

    by estacado1

    for this thread. Keira's absence is really felt. Orlando can go back to being an elf, I don't care.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:16 p.m. CST

    Hope they keep it under 4 hours

    by Simpsonian

    that's what the others were right?

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:23 p.m. CST

    As long as it's a totally standalone complete story...

    by IndustryKiller!

    I can't believe the idiotically made the sequels serialized overwrought incomprehensible nonsense when they had a real opportunity to explore a totally different story and tone with each successive film ala the three Indiana Jones films (there's only three right)? This could be fun if it stands on its own and they drop expendable characters and bring in whole new ones for the next film, there is ZERO reason for Penelope Cruz to be in any more than one of these films. Depp and Rush are the only actors that ever need come back.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:27 p.m. CST

    best thing about this movie...

    by asojax

    is no keira or orlando bloom, Happy to see Ian Mcshane, Will be interesting to see how this turns out has the same look the previous three had but searching for the fountain of youth?

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:42 p.m. CST

    They had me at "hello".

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    Look, I loved the original, but like many of you, liked the second chapter less and basically hated the third chapter which became bloated with sea gods, magic, alternate realms and gobbledygook. This trailer seems to recapture the lighting and general ambience of the ride itself, which was part of why "Pirates" worked so well to begin with. Ian McShane looks and sounds awesome. Johnny's Captn' Jack is always welcome, however I'm betting that he and Penelope Cruse fail to generate any chemistry.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:52 p.m. CST

    Looks awesome...

    by Horned One

    I love these movies, and it looks like this will be a worthy sequel. Capt'n Jack Sparrow is the new Indiana Jones.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 5:57 p.m. CST

    Looks great!

    by epitone

    But is it a good movie, or just Disney's superior trailer-making skills? I mean, those dudes made me kind of want to see The Sorcerer's Apprentice! (Don't worry; I didn't.)

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 6:53 p.m. CST

    This cannot be as bad as the third one.

    by TheUltimateMathTeacher

    Seriously, the third one was mostly unwatchable. If they just scale it back a tad, it will already be better. With the inclusion of McShane, it should be a fun summer movie. No more, no less.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 7:03 p.m. CST

    People talking about how they cut the dead weight...

    by BlaGyver

    Did you miss the two young kids clearly in love that seem to be the substitutes? The boy even kinda looks like a younger Orlando Bloom at a glance.....the only love interest I'm interested in seeing onscreen is Penelope Cruz, because I'm excited to see a woman that can sort of stand up to Jack.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 7:05 p.m. CST

    seems fine to me

    by jameskpolk

    I've never seen on e of these films all the way through... Caught bits of it on TNT a few times. Couldn't tell which movie was on, even... This seems like it would be a good place to jump in. I won't need to care about returning characters, and will (possibly) be able to enjoy it as a stand-alone adventure. Doesn't that seem like the proper course? Retain loyal fans and attract new ones?

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 7:06 p.m. CST

Personally I'd rather watch 2 Girls 1 Cup in 3D!

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 8:16 p.m. CST

    I fuckin hated the 3rd movie

    by DCRex

    As long as it's better than the absolutely god awful third movie I will be seeing this. Honestly that movie was bullshit. They spent half the movie going to get Jack and then gathering all the damn pirates together. Then voodoo mama joojoo randomly became a malestrom that divided two giant fleets of ships that I was geared up to see battle it out. And then only TWO damn ships battled and it wasn't even that exciting. It was fuckin retarded from start to finish. But I'm not bitter ;)

    Okay, I'm aboard for this one

    by FeralAngel

    I was skeptical until I saw the trailer. Depp is mincing about a bit much, but hey he is STILL Jack Sparrow and I fucking love that guy. Everything else looked good, including the lady pirate. Damn. I am so effing hungry for a fantasy adventure movie with STYLE, with a world you can really get into, and Pirates generally nails that for me. Can't wait for this one.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 8:38 p.m. CST

    HOW DO THEY DO IT?

    by uberman

    How, when you have movies with pirates, epic battles, sea monsters, cannibles, zombies, witches, etc, how come all these movies have the same effect as one watching paint drying? These films are BOORING to the 100000th Degree. Good lord, I have sat through 3 of them and I'll be damned if I get caught up in the pre-release massive add campaign and celebrity buzz on this one. They look great when you can clip out the exciting parts and make a preview, but watching them? Tedious in the extreme. Some good actors, and some good effects (at times), but the screenplay and direction are friggin bland.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 9:13 p.m. CST

    Why does it look so cheap?

    It's way better than these fucking pirate movies. Certainly Dead Man's Chest and At World's End. I'm surprised to see so many people on here getting so psyched for what appears to be another load of crap.

    Too true, admonisher......

    by archer1949

    But I always thought The Anubis Gates would make a better movie anyway. I heard that they had a Last Call Movie in the works. Whatever happened to that? My dream Tim Powers project would be an HBO miniseries adaptation of Declare.

    Will I see it?

    by dukeroberts

    I liked the first one a lot. It was fun. The second one was a bloated mess, so much so that I didn't bother seeing the third one. This one looks scaled down, leaner. It might be okay with Ian McShane as Blackbeard, but I will let other people tell me what they think of it before I consider seeing it. The young romantic couple look like ridiculous added on dead weight. 86 those two, Bruckheimer (if you're even involved this time)! Pirates do not need assistance from some bland pretty boy and some Keira Knightly wanna be.

    by 'Cholera's Ghost

    Keira and Bloom fit nicely into the first film, but their story was done and dragging those characters through a trilogy really...sucked. I mean 2 sort of lost me and 3 I didn't even care anymore. I can't even really remember what happened with them, Will becomes the new captain of the flying dutchman for some reason and Swan goes...and...does other things?

    Dramatically Reduced Budget. Not that I miss the overblown bullshit of the second and third Pirates movies. This is the first time I've visited AICN since it became all this weird looking shit. Time to leave again for awhile and wait for this ugly computer disease to be cured. Is this seriously the way the site is going to be now? This is just a temporary problem, right?

    by the_rising

    The 2nd and 3rd films had amazing sfx work and nothing else. They were dumb, boring, overblown and lacking in the humor which made the first film a success. I won't be suckered into paying $18. No way. Piss off, Captain Jackoff.

    Cruz

    by NightArrows

    How the fuck does she still get work?? She's fucking awful and brings everything she's in to a screeching halt. That fucking voice of hers sounds like a high pitched fart and is a knife in the neck when you have to listen to it. The first film was really fun, but because of the dreck that was part 2 and 3, the decision to skip this one is easy.

    the internet has moved on, people's attention spans are even shorter. they aren't going to have patience to wait for AICN to fix what must have been the most basic of codes to begin with. if you guys can't handle this site, how will you ever adapt? i'm hoping you'll launch with some slick, new effective format, but i doubt it. i've been checking back, and what is up to read isn't even comfortable to look at, so i pass by. it took me some trouble to even log in again and post this. it'll probably be my last until the 'reveal' (fingers crossed) of the new site. this is just poor form, fellas. it's embarrassing. i hope the site lives through it.

    Cruz speaking in her native spanish is one of the most beautiful voices in world cinema. She is immensely talented, and her work in Pedro almodovar's movies have earned her accolades and awards all over the place. You americans know almost nothing of Cruz's work, and the characters she has played in american movies belittle her real talent. Whenever an american speaks ill of Cruz's talent as an actress, they literally don't know what they are talking about. Really.

    Oh, the terrible foreign accent! How dare people not speak perfect american accents, specially the foreigners.
