The Mermaids Show Off Their Scales in New POTC Poster

In “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) races against his nemesis Blackbeard (Ian McShane) to find the Fountain of Youth. To do that, though, he needs mermaids. Those scaly down south, hot up north ladies of the sea. Two of the mermaids are played by Astrid Berges-Frisbey and Gemma Ward and are featured in the new “POTC: On Stranger Tides” poster. Please to view.

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.

Rob Marshall directs the film, due out May 20, 2011.
