"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is the fourth film in the wildly popular "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. New cast members include Penélope Cruz and Ian McShane.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise, only this time in Disney Digital 3D. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love, or if she's just a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces Jack aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: the vicious Blackbeard or this mysterious woman from his past.

The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack's longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is directed by Rob Marshall from a screenplay by Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio. Dariusz Wolski is the cinematographer, Michael Kahn is the editor, John Myrhe is the production designer, and the music is by Hans Zimmer. The film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and executive produced by Ted Elliot, John DeLuca, Chad Oman, Terry Rossio, Mike Stenson, and Barry H. Waldman.
