Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Johnny Depp returns as the wily Captain Jack Sparrow in a tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise -- and mermaids. When Jack crosses paths with the enigmatic Angelica, 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 ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or the mysterious woman from his past.
