Exhibiting a face, and figure, more than just a pirate could love, the first images of Penelope Cruz in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides just surfaced. Cruz plays a mysterious woman from Captain Jack Sparrow’s (Johnny Depp) past who may or may not be the key to finding the Fountain of Youth as they race the evil Captain Blackbeard (Ian McShane). These images come a few weeks after the first ones of Captain Jack surfaced.
Over 30 photos from the set of the film–which is being shot in 3D and will be released May 20, 2011–have arrived online. The images show Cruz, along with Johnny Depp and other cast and crew on a beach. But there is certainly plenty to look at here. Are those kids in the movie? Do Cruz’s weapons mean she’s going to fight in the film? The images are simply begging for dissection from Pirates fans.

Here’s the latest press release from Disney:
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), 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 Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid. In theaters Memorial Day weekend, 2011.
