Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Cruz), and 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 (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.

Did You Know?
This film is loosely based on the 1988 pirate novel "On Stranger Tides", by Tim Powers
. The novel's protagonist is a pirate named Jack, but his character is significantly different from Jack Sparrow. See more
(at around 2 mins) The two Spanish fishermen at the beginning of the film go to Cadiz to show the man they caught to the king of Spain. On their way, they pass through heavy forests and the wide shot of the city shows cliffs that end in the open ocean. This is wrong because of several reasons: first, Cadiz is not, nor has it ever been, Spain's capital, so it is not logical the king is there. Secondly, Cadiz is on Southern Spain, it has an arid and dry climate and it is a wide, circular bay with no significant elevations. See more
There'll be dangers along the way... firstly mermaids, zombies... Blackbeard.
Immediately after the credits, Angelica is shown sitting on the beach when the voodoo doll of Jack washes ashore. She picks it up and smiles evilly. See more
