First Look at Penelope Cruz in Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Published 5 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:27 pm,

In case you weren’t aware, there’s another Pirates of the Caribbean movie on the way, despite the third movie making a strong case for the franchise to sail off into the sunset, never to be heard from again.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is currently in filming in Hawaii and amongst the principal cast are Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz. Speaking of the latter, Radar Online has managed to snagged a whole slew of images from the set of the movie and they give us our first look at Cruz in her role.

Cruz plays the daughter of McShane’s Blackbeard (the new franchise villain) and is described as, “Jack Sparrow’s foil and his equal in many ways.” The set pics don’t show much in the way of action, so it’s hard to judge just how much of an equal Cruz will be to Captain Jack. But at least we can get an idea of how Cruz will look in the movie.

Take a look at a selection of the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 images below, which also give us a look at Rush as returning fan-favorite character, Captain Barbossa:

You can check out the rest of the gallery of 33 set images over at Radar Online.

Now that both Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have dropped out of the franchise (their love story nonsense crippled the two sequels) Pirates can start sailing in a better direction. The filmmakers have already brought in fresh blood with Cruz and McShane, but have also added more new faces, including Stephen Graham (Public Enemies), Astrid-Berges Frisbey (playing a mermaid) and Sam Claflin as, “Philip, a youthful missionary.”

Focusing on Cruz in particular, I’m intrigued to see how they go about making her an equal for Captain Jack. He’s pretty much the focus of the series (a big part of the franchise’s success is due to him) and his persona/charisma almost always manages to be the center of attention. Is there any doubt Cruz will turn out to be some sort of love interest for Jack? I imagine at the very least there will be some romantic tension going on.

In case you missed it, check out the Pirates 4 teaser trailer featuring Captain Jack Sparrow talking directly to the camera.

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

  1. Wow……yeah i remember all the posters and evrything telling us 3 was the last…

    • Well, that’s not the case anymore ;).

  2. Oh no! Barbosa has a crutch!!! Poor poor Barbosa :(

    • It’s probably made of applewood and dead souls, or something…

    • SPOILER! – Don’t read beyond here if you don’t want to why he has a cruth.

      It’s because he’s got a peg leg now!!!!!.

  3. LMAO!!! Its not a big spoiler lol!

    • Yes, actually it is a spoiler! 😉 .

  4. are Pintel and Regetti returning for this movie?

    • Nope. They’re not.

      And can I just say how much I hate PC’S pirate outfit!!!!

    • No, Pintel and Regetti wont be coming back in Pirates 4. There will be new comic-relief type of characters that will take their place, but wont play their same characters from the first three movies.

  5. Is Barbosa hired by the Admiralty to pursue Jack? His outfit looks very formal navy, not a rogue pirate.

    • Yeah, Maybe.

  6. Hey! why is Barbossa wearing royal navy clothes?! lol

    • Because, he’s probably trying to get information out of them, that they don’t want pirates to know, that has to do with the fountain of youth i bet!.

  7. I gotta say, i’m glad Will and Elizabeth were written out. Their story arch was kinda stupid by the time the third movie came out.

    • I totally agree 😉 .

  8. More please!

  9. Bloom and knightly have way to much going on to do a silly movie like this.

  10. I liked Barbossa’s old hat with the feather! :(

  11. I dont get it, they left us all of that love stuff between will and alizabeth, will is now the new davy jones, alizabeth has a kid, and they just throw them out, so what happens…. how can u just make pirates 2 and 3 all about them, three history, and now future and just throw them out. This doesnt make any sense…. r they even coming back in 5 or at all????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I am reluctant to See the Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 because I don’t care for Penelope Cruz. I believe that her accent will be a distraction for the movie. I personally believe that she has been miscast for the role. Whatever the part she’s playing I don’t care. It seems to me that Keira Knightly was the better choice, but she of course opted out and took her career elsewhere.
