Pirates 4 Teaser Poster Released
Kingdom of the silver skull?

15 November 2010  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: IMP Awards

Splice the main brace and whatnot, me hearties, there be a teaser poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides yonder. Ahaaarr, yo-ho, etc.

What does it tell us? Absolutely nothing. What we have here is the usual franchise image of the piratey skull on the crossed swords, against a black background. It could be the teaser for any of the previous three Pirates movies, if not for the material the skull is fashioned from. 

That metallic sheen could suggest any number of likelihoods. Perhaps Jack Sparrow will find an island of pirate Terminators, or get his skeleton laced with adamantium (either of which we would totally pay to see). Possibly it hints at an encounter with the Silver Surfer, or, at a stretch (because those other suggestions are so plausible) with Chromeskull from Laid to Rest. Or maybe it's a metaphor for On Stranger Tides itself: an entry in a franchise that's comfortably familiar but slightly tweaked.

On Stranger Tides sees Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush as Hector Barbossa, off in search of the Fountain of Youth, facing certain opposition from Ian McShane as the dastardly Blackbeard. Penelope Cruz, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Gemma Ward, Oscar Jaenada, Sam Clafin and Stephen Graham are also setting sail, with Rob Marshall at the helm. The film comes ashore next May.
