Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Trailer!

I hope it may just be a weak trailer, but Pirates 4 looks like more of an unfunny rehash of what has come before; or, I might just be cooling to Depp's Jack Sparrow. Sparrow was a stronger character with a full ensemble to riff with, but this movie very much represents a full solo adventure, so I am hoping they just threw in the stalest bits to get a trailer out there for the Tron audiences. Then again, the last two Pirates' sequels were muddled and maybe too dense with plot threads for their own good.

Gore Verbinski begged off this sequel (not a good sign), and Rob Marshall is at the helm. Verbinski had a strong cinematographic sense about incorporating the supernatural into the Caribbean setting, and Rob Marhsall did, uh...musicals? Marhsall's strongest efforts were Nine and Chicago, which are great genre films, but I don't know for the life of me how they prepared him for this type of summer fantasy action-adventure. God help us if Sparrow bursts into song...
