Fans of Captain Jack Sparrow can catch a glimpse of the rugged swashbuckler all cleaned up and moonlighting as actor Johnny Depp at the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, happening May 7 at Disneyland.
Depp, along with co-stars Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane are expected to attend the “black carpet” event, a dinner soiree anchored by an outdoor 3D screening of the film. Watch out for flying swords!

Viva Pictures LLC announced the national DVD and VOD release of the long-awaited romantic saga “A Matador’s Mistress.” The film stars Penelope Cruz and Adrien Brody and was written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Menno Meyes (The Color Purple, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade). A Matador’s Mistress (originally known as Manolete) finally gets a highly anticipated U.S. release when it arrives on DVD and Video on Demand on June 7th. I can’t wait to see this – I was looking forward to the film for a very long time!
Along with breathtaking international locations, steamy love scenes and stunning bullfighting sequences, A Matador’s Mistress features deeply moving performances by both the Spanish-born Cruz who took home the Oscar for Vicky Cristina Barcelona and co-star Adrien Brody who won Best Actor for The Pianist. Menno Meyes who wrote and directed the $28 million production is also an Oscar nominee for writing the screenplay for The Color Purple.
Set in the 1940′s, A Matador’s Mistress tells the story of the most celebrated bullfighter in Spain, Manuel Rodriguez Sanchez (Adrien Brody), famously known around the world as Manolete.
Manolete’s life changes when he becomes obsessed with the beautiful and mysterious Lupe Sino (Penelope Cruz). What unfolds is a passionate and tragic romance that ends with Manolete’s death in the bullring in 1947 at the age of 30.
Penélope Cruz was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 24, 2011. Here is her interview from that day in three parts.
The cast of the Untitled Woody Allen Project is coming together quickly, with Ellen Page and Penélope Cruz locked in for roles in the drama.
We reported two days ago that Alec Baldwin secured a role in the project, with Jesse Eisenberg in talks for a lead role. Jesse Eisenberg’s deal has now been finalized, although it still isn’t clear what kind of character he is playing. No character details were given for Ellen Page or Penélope Cruz’s characters either.
Woody Allen will direct from his own screenplay, with Letty Aronson and Helen Robin. All that is known about the story is that it will be set in Rome.
Like Jesse Eisenberg, the Untitled Woody Allen Project will be Ellen Page’s first movie with the legendary filmmaker. Penélope Cruz previously worked with Woody Allen in the 2008 comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona, where she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
Untitled Woody Allen Project comes to theaters in 2012 and stars Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penélope Cruz. The film is directed by Woody Allen.

One month after welcoming a baby boy, Penelope Cruz dazzled on the red carpet at Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Walking hand-in-hand with her Oscar-nominated husband Javier Bardem, Cruz, 36, showed off her enviable figure in a curve-hugging red L’Wren Scott design. The new mom accessorized her awards show ensemble with yellow oval and pear shaped chandelier earrings and a pink sapphire ring, both by Chopard.
It is Cruz’s first red carpet appearance since she gave birth to their first child last month in L.A., reportedly named Leo Encinas.
Although the Spanish superstar couple have remained fairly mum about their new family, Bardem couldn’t help but gush while accepting a Goya Award in his native Spain Feb. 13.
“I dedicate [this award] to my wife and son for awakening my heart and smile every day,” Bardem, 41, said.
