The trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has been released and tells of Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp, most recently seen in The Tourist) trying to beat Blackbeard to the fountain of youth. Seems like quite a typical storyline and will follow pretty much the same themes and action sequences as the previous films has shown us. I'm surprised it took them this long to bring out Blackbeard, who hopefully will be more villainous.
The absence of Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom's characters and story arc allows this movie to have a new beginning but the two will surely be missed, given their [tragic] and sad ending. I'm glad they're not in this though, because I'd hate to see them be part of a sinking ship. I was also surprised Penelope Cruz agreed to star in this movie- she looks great and I'm sure will bring some latino flair to the female lacking film.
Whilst this movie will undoubtedly do well at the Box Office just because it carries the POTC name, I wished they'd stopped at 3, but since it's already been made, I guess it's best to just embrace it and enjoy it as much as I can.
