New Images of the New Lovebirds in POTC: On Stranager Tides

A couple of new pics from Rob Marshall’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” that focuses on some of the new faces, in particular lovely French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey and hunky hunk Sam Claflin, the franchise’s new/replacement lovebirds. (In case you’ve been living under a rock, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, the franchise’s original lovebirds have jumped, well, ship.) They could be one-off’ers, or they could return for parts 5 and 6. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how popular they are (or not) with the kids.

In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope 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 (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

The new kids join Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, Jami Gertz, Stephen Graham, Greg Ellis, Óscar Jaenada, Kevin McNally, and Gemma Ward, in a film directed by Rob Marshall.

Set sailing May 20, 2011.
