The Superbowl is known just as much for its commercials as it is for the game, and fans of the massively popular Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will get a special treat this Sunday. The official trailer for the much-awaited fourth installment of the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will premiere during the Superbowl XLV broadcast.
On Stranger Tides sees Johnny Depp reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, and features Penelope Cruz in a supporting role.Â Cruz, who won an Oscar for her work in Vicky Christina Barcelona, provides much-needed female star power to the film, which is thought to suffer from the departure of Keira Knightley.
A ten second sneak peak of the trailer has been released online and has already created quite the buzz.Â No doubt Walt Disney Studios want to capitalize on the massive Superbowl audience to develop interest in the film.
On Stranger Tides, which also co-stars Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane, releases this summer.
