The fourth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and the first in the series to be directed by Rob Marshall and not Gore Verbinski. The plot draws inspiration from the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, which is the same novel that inspired the LucasArts game, The Secret of Monkey Island. Johnny Depp is back as Jack Sparrow and he’s joined by Geoffrey Rush, Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Stephen Graham, Judi Dench and Gemma Ward.
The plot follows Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Cruz), and he's not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
