EXCLUSIVE: Johnny Depp Sails The High Seas In New ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Photo

Captain Jack Sparrow sails back into theaters on May 20, 2011, offering moviegoers the opportunity to sail the high seas with this bumbling, drunken pirate for the first time since 2007.

But when Johnny Depp returns to his signature role, he’ll be in entirely new territory: gone are Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, replaced by newcomers like Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane. Likewise, original director Gore Verbinski has walked the plank with “Nine” helmer Rob Marshall stepping in to captain the Black Pearl for its fourth voyage. Despite the new parts — indeed, perhaps because of them — we’re still very much looking forward to “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” and we’re betting that you are, too.

To whet your appetite for the latest “Pirates” adventure — less than a month away from release now — we’ve got an exclusive photo for your viewing pleasure, all part of MTV’s Summer Movie Preview week. Enjoy!
