Although the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, On Stranger Tides, doesn’t hit theaters until 2011, Captain Jack Sparrow has already made his return to the big screen for fans at the San Diego Comic Con.
The following teaser video was shown in 3D to the audience during the Walt Disney Pictures presentation this past week:
While the footage isn’t actually from the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) is seen in full costume, lounging on a beach, revealing that he may or may not be searching for the Fountain of Youth in the new film (which we knew) and that along the way he’ll encounter mermaids (which we knew) and zombies (which we didn’t necessarily know).
The fourth Pirates film will be shot and shown in 3D, a fact emphasized in the teaser by cheap 3D tricks, like Captain Jack holding out his bottle to the crowd, as seen above.
The announced release date for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is May 20, 2011.
