PotC4 SuperbOwl Commercial

Because it’s not just any owl, it’s a SUPERB owl, here’s the latest from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Mostly the same stuff we’ve seen in earlier trailers/teasers, but a little bit of new material here and there. I think it’s getting clear that the Jack Shandy/Beth Hurwood story arc from the book is on some level finding its way onscreen, although anyone looking for a loyal adaptation had best make their peace now.

As for me, I need to come to terms with the fact that Penelope Cruz still seems to have no role in this movie. The trailer has her belting out only a single cliché (“Steady as she goes!”) and magazines still describe her character simply as “fiesty.” I hope to be gravely mistaken, but thus far it looks like Angelica Beard (Blackbeard’s daughter) will be little more than a tag-along in this film.

    There is an extended version on the disney offical website that shows a lot more of Cruz and a lot more of the plot. I think its going to have a lot of POTC cliches and not enough good pirating, but I have my fingers crossed.

    Don’t you mean Angelica Teach? Considering she is the daughter of Blackbeard aka Edward Teach! I’m just sayin’ it while everyone else is thinkin’ it, savvy?

    Well, if we want to be historical brainiacs, then maybe we should debate calling her Angelica Thatch or Angelica Drummond, or any of a dozen other possibilities. Nah, I think it’s safest we stick to Angelica Beard 😛
