Well smack my ass! No sooner have we posted up the new Barbossa character poster from Rob Marshall's new 3D installment of the hugely successful Disney franchise 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' does a new one-sheet lands on our desk. This time it's a poster and character details for the notorious Blackbeard, played by Ian Mcshane ('Case 39', 'Death Race'). Johnny Depp returns once again as the much-loved drunken pirate tit Jack Sparrow and he'll be joined by the gorgeous Penelope Cruz along with Geoffrey Rush ('The King's Speech'), R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Sam Claflin, Stephen Graham ('This is England', 'Snatch'), Richard Griffiths and Gemma Ward. Check Blackbeards character deets and the poster below.
Blackbeard, a name uttered in terror by all who sail the sea, or any unfortunate enough to encounter him on dry land. His flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, is manned by zombies, festooned with the bones of his victims and spits fire from its bow to incinerate enemy ships, or the occasional crew member fallen out of favor. Blackbeard dabbles in the Black Arts and wields a sword imbedded with one of the three sapphires of Triton. But Blackbeard lives under the shadow of a prophesied death, his only hope the restorative waters of the Fountain of Youth. Whatever it takes, no matter who is crushed beneath the weight of his heartless ambition, Blackbeard will get there, by any possible means.
Don't forget 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' lands in the UK on 18 May and the 20 May across the US and Canada.
Ian Mcshane is Blackbeard
