Comic-Con: Captain Jack speaks out!


"As a surprise for attendees exiting the Tron Legacy panel, Disney showed a special teaser for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, now shooting in Hawaii.

Johnny Depp appeared as Captain Jack Sparrow in full 3D, sitting on the beach with a bottle of rum and speaking directly to the Comic-Con audience. He told everyone that it certainly wasn't the case that he would soon be embarking on a quest to find the fountain of youth but that, even if he were, he wouldn't be looking for a crew. But, if he did, would anyone in the audience be interested?

He promised that such an adventure would include 'zombies, cutthroats, mermaids and... Penelope Cruz' and that it would be the kind of quest that would require 'A bloody map. Or a bloody Mary. Or both.'

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will hit theaters on May 20, 2011."

Who knows? Maybe there'll be a trailer attached to Tron Legacy.

There used to be a video up here but Jerry Bruckheimer took it off YouTube. You can still see it on YouTube but not here.

Here's a transcript of the video:

JACK SPARROW: Hello boys and girls.... or whatever. My name is Captain Jack Sparrow. Ah, I take it some of you have heard of me. As you may well know, there are times - almost constantly, in fact - where I prefer to look at the world from the bottom of the glass... of rum. Something like this. [drinks rum] Oh. [holds it out to audience, remember this is 3D] You may have also heard whisperings and rumors that Jack Sparrow be recruiting a crew to undertake a voyage to the Fountain of Youth. Not true, course not. But even if it weren't not true, you wouldn't be interested in joining me, would you? Eh? No, thought not. I do admit that there will be varied and substantial dangers along the way including but not limited to zombies, cutthroats, mermaids and the vicious and vivacious Penelope Cruz... which is why I’m not going, no sir. Impossible to find the place anyway. No one knows where it is, plus I'd have to have a bloody map. Or a Bloody Mary. Or both. Which is not a bad idea, in fact, a Bloody Mary. [smiles] Bloody Maries all around! It's on the Mouse! [cue Pirates music]
