When Eyeshadows Collide: Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz glam it up in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES pulled into port this weekend, plundering $90+ million from eager audiences. And that’s no surprise: People just love that incorrigible rapscallion (rapscallion?) Capt. Jack Sparrow — as portrayed by Johnny Depp — and apparently have a bottomless hunger for his adventures in a world where history and magic meld smoothly into one sumptuous, sea-going epic. Is the latest installment’s quest for the legendary Fountain of Youth a fitting follow-up to the previous chapters — or even better? Is Sparrow’s reunion with his old (and now-fully-mortal) nemesis Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) worth the wait? And do Ian McShane as the fearsome pirate Blackbeard and Penelope Cruz as his comely daughter (and potential Sparrow love-interest) worthy additions to our hardy crew? Listen in as Cinefantastique Online’s Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons set sail by the North Star, brave the surging waves, and guide their podcast past the rocky shoals and in for a safe landing.
And in conclusion: Arrrrrrrr. There, that’s got it covered.

First Pic Of Penelope Cruz in Pirates 4

Penelope Cruz in PIRATES 4Reaction to the announcement that the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise would get a 4th film has been met with great fanfare from the hardcore “Sparrowheads”, and a more shoulder-shrug reaction from the rest. But despite which of these camps you fit into, the buzz machine keeps on rolling as today saw the release of the first on-set picture of Johnny Depp’s co-star Penelope Cruz. Cruz is just one more addition to a cast already chock full of amazing actors including Geoffrey Rush reprising his role as Barbossa, and Ian McShane making his debut as the infamous Blackbeard.
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES is currently filming and is slated to be released May 20th, 2011.
