Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz ramp up the sexual tension in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, “On Stranger Tides” which also includes a healthy dose of fetching mermaids.
In the movie, Capt. Jack Sparrow falls under the influence of sexy Angelica played by a bawdy Cruz. Together, they search for the Fountain of Youth, featured in the latest trailer.
Treachery is an undercurrent in their relationship as Capt. Jack attempts to stay one step ahead of the fierce Blackbeard, played by Ian McShane.
Rolling Stone Keith Richards makes a return appearance as Sparrow’s father.
As for the mermaids, they are putatively nude, but producer Jerry Bruckheimer finesses their scenes to maintain the movie’s ratings.
The trailer opens with Cruz asking in halting tones whether Jack has ever seen “with his own eyes” the Fountain of Youth.
Jack, of course, is in possession of the map. But to where? That’s what the British governor wants to know, as Jack is hauled before him in chains.
Jack’s beloved ship, the Black Pearl, apparently is in the hands of Blackbeard and Jack sets off to reclaim it.
The film hits theaters May 20th. Check out the trailer below.
