I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”: The Pirates are Back! (Kinda.)

Pandora queued up “Down Under” by Men at Work while I was starting this post. What a perfect song, especially in the sense of this film.

We’ve got a new director, two of the original cast members (Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom) are gone, but Disney’s ever-popular Pirates of the Caribbean franchise sails on with their next installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and unlike the previous movies (especially the bizarre third chapter), this one might actually have a storyline! How do I know this? Also unlike the previous films’ trailers, this one tells us in the first few seconds. There’s hope for the franchise after all.

Rob Marshall takes the helm on this installment, and although it’s a fresh face and a new style, I think I’m going to miss previous director Gore Verbinski and his strange, Tim Burton-esque sea warriors (like Davy Jones) that were so famous in the last adventures.

Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane also star, with Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones as Captain Jack Sparrow’s father (who also appeared in PotC: At World’s End.) The movie, which will be in 3D, comes out on May 20th.
