Pirates are a sailin’, Ghostface is a killin’, and the latest Disney princess is causing comic mischief with her four-legged costars in our latest roundup of movie posters, images, and footage.

We have the first official one-sheet for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides to check out, as well as new photos from Scream 4 and a handful of clips from Disney’s Tangled for you to peruse through and inspect at your leisure, naturally.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Walt Disney Pictures knows there is still life left in its ride-turned-moneymaking movie franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and will find out just how much when Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides arrives next summer. The company has released an official one-sheet for the pic that feature the familiar image of a (now, metallic) skull decked out in beads and a red bandanna, with two swords crossed behind it in the background. It’s only a poster, but we can’t help but wonder: Will Pirates of the Caribbean 4 offer moviegoers anything they’ve not previously seen from the franchise?

Johnny Depp will be back as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth POTC flick, along with Geoffrey Rush as his former mutinous first mate Captain (Hector) Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Jack’s oft-drunken comrade, Joshamee Gibbs. Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane are newcomers to the franchise, as is Rob Marshall, who will take over directorial duties from Gore Verbinski for On Stranger Tides. Can the Chicago helmer instill new life into this bloated blockbuster action-adventure series?

Scream 4

Wes Craven is in a similar position to that of Marshall, as his new film, Scream 4, hopes to be the first in several new installments in a franchise that, while successful in its time, most moviegoers have now had their fill of.

Dimension Films has released a handful of new images from the horror flick, which finds Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott once again having to defend herself against a homicidal maniac who’s always dressed for Halloween. David Arquette and Courtney Cox are back as well, along with numerous young stars like Emma Roberts, Heroes‘ Hayden Panettiere, and Rory Culkin, who have to obey the rules of the horror genre in the age of reboots and Saw movies if they hope to survive.

Check out the newest photos from the fourth Scream pic below:

Disney’s spin on the classic fairy tale Rapunzel, now redubbed Tangled, arrives next week over the Thanksgiving holiday and hopes to attract those looking for a family-friendly adventure with a new princess and humorous animal sidekicks to boot.

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi lent their voices to Tangled, which also boasts some luminous French Rococo painting-inspired animation that gives the flick a distinctive look, different that the organic style of Pixar or the cartoonish visual design of Dreamworks’ animated fare. The humor, characters, and story all feel pretty familiar, but younger moviegoers should get a kick out of Tangled, while their parents can breath a sigh of relief that they aren’t watching Yogi Bear instead.

Check out four clips from Tangled below:

Tangled hits 2D and 3D screens in the U.S. on November 24th, 2010.

Scream 4 attacks theaters around the U.S. on April 15th, 2011.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will sail into 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20th, 2011.

  1. Im actually extremely excited for POTC4. It just seems like they are starting with a brand new slate and the story seems to be fresh and fun. I just hope im right.

  2. Next summer belongs to Pirates 4!!!

    • I doubt it. I might go see it if I hear good things, but I’m probably going to pass- as this article suggests, I am burned out on that series. A trilogy is far enough for most stories.

      • That said, the point I’m getting it is it seems most people are tired like this.

        • … People like a pirate
          movie :)

    • I was so right!!!!!!! Over a $1,000,000,000

  3. MY littel girls are soo gonna love TNAGLED and after these shorts I must say i think I too will be laughing a lot more then I anticipated.

    The cutting up and carrying on between the guy and horst are histarical.

  4. POTC is a good story, but after the 3rd its over, disney should make space mountain movie. Or an epcot movie (the worst place in disney world btw), anything but another POTC movie… That being said, I hope this one revives the franchice… but im sure it wont…

    scream could be good… word of advice… kill neve campbell in this one, start a new cast a new story and new twists and turns… hopefully they make a OMG factor they had in the first one…

    and i think tangled looks dumb, another shrek wannabe… not at all interested in seeing this one…

  5. cant wait till pirates 4

  6. What’s not to like about POTC 4? Jack Sparrow, mermaids, zombies, Blackbeard, pirates, voodoo, and Barbossa? Sparrow could be funny reading a phone book sitting on the beach. Can’t wait – supposedly the first teaser will be attached to Tron in December, hope it’s a decent – it will get a lot of attention. Comparisons with the first 3 are unavoidable, but it’s more of a reboot than a sequel – no Will/Liz, for one thing

    • What’s not to like about POTC 4? Uh did you see POTC 2+3? They were both god awful.

      • I love all three POTCs, #2 introduced great characters (DJ, Tia) and there were some great moments (cannibals, the Kraken, Dutchman) and I saw AWE multiple times – I like great big stories, and AWE had any number of great scenes. Can’t help it if US audiences need everything 90 minutes long and have to watch a movie with Cliff notes. Personally I like getting my money’s worth, and I hope Marshall isn’t as stingy as Gore and packs the POTC 4 DVD with deleted scenes – and POTC 4 will be terrific, they are taking a lot of care filming it – terrific cast.

        • I don’t see how you can look at the scene with the Cannibals as good b/c it’s entirely pointless. You can cut that from the movie and it would be the exact same.

        • @” Can’t help it if US audiences need everything 90 minutes long and have to watch a movie with Cliff notes”

          I love to watch long movies (LOTR, TDK, Avatar to name a few), but Pirates 3 was just too long. A film about pirates really only needs to be no longer than 2 hours.

      • The biggest problem I have with Pirates 2 is that it starts off getting into the story, but takes a brake and doesn’t pick back up until the 40 minute mark.

    • Explain how its a reboot Virginia, enlighten us all please :)

      • Yeah, hard to have a reboot when its the same actors, characters and continuity. More of a sequel if you ask me. (Batarang of saracasm launched!)

      • Depends on how you define a re-boot, if you define a re-boot as a fresh start, it’s a reboot. Or maybe it’s a demi-reboot, or part of a serial. Because this film has a FEW of the former cast (Barbossa, Sparrow, Gibbs) and is MISSING a lot of others (Will, Liz, the rest of the whole crew). To me a sequel would have had another storyline involving Will, Liz, Sparrow and Barbossa, and the story has no connection with the former triangle. It’s not like this is POTC 4: The Return of Will Turner.
        But if it makes you happy, call it a sequel. But to me it’s more along the lines of the old Hope/Crosby “Road” pictures, and it’s stupid reading things about Keira’s “replacement” – the parts aren’t even in this movie and weren’t from the beginning.
