The Superbowl is known just as much for its commercials as it is for the game, and fans of the massively popular Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will get a special treat this Sunday. The official trailer for the much-awaited fourth installment of the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will premiere during the Superbowl XLV broadcast.

On Stranger Tides sees Johnny Depp reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, and features Penelope Cruz in a supporting role. Cruz, who won an Oscar for her work in Vicky Christina Barcelona, provides much-needed female star power to the film, which is thought to suffer from the departure of Keira Knightley.

A ten second sneak peak of the trailer has been released online and has already created quite the buzz. No doubt Walt Disney Studios want to capitalize on the massive Superbowl audience to develop interest in the film.

On Stranger Tides
, which also co-stars Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane, releases this summer.

Finally after nearly a year – has a ‘new’ look. I really didn’t intend on showcasing Nine for so long – especially while it was one of my least favorite Pe films, but I really loved the setup and found it hard to part (plus she was so gorgeous in the movie!) But I was in need desperate of a change so I decided to keep with the set up but freshen (and lighten) things up. The images are taken from her Vanity Fair Spain photoshoot last year. The gallery has also been integrated with this look.

The layout is best viewed in Mozilla Firefox, but has been checked in IE and holds up (but still prettiest in Firefox – hee!) but please let me know if you encounter any errors. I really hope you like the new look! ;)

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has officially wrapped production, confirmed today by Jerry Bruckheimer Films Twitter. They also announced the trailer will premiere December 17, 2010 and a few days back the first teaser poster was released.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise –this time in Disney Digital 3D. In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope 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 (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.

Penélope Cruz was in Madrid to pose for Vogue magazine, before the camera of famous photographer Peter Lindberg.

She posed pregnant, as did other celebrities like Demi Moore, Claudia Schiffer and Britney Spears. It is not known whether she will appear naked like the others or not, but the photos of Penélope are unpationately expected in the magazine.

Rumors about a possible pregnancy of the actress began circulating this year, after the appearance of some of her photos and the announcement of her marriage with actor Javier Bardem in July in the Bahamas. They were confirmed on 14 September, after the actress’ representative Antonio Rubin said that Penelope Cruz is fourth month pregnant.

At last, Javier Bardem has piped up about Penélope Cruz’s pregnancy.

The actor finally spoke about his wife’s baby-to-be during a Sunday press conference in Rome for Eat Pray Love.

“Yes, it’s true,” Bardem, 41, told reporters, according to Access Hollywood. “I am very happy.”

After Cruz was snapped sporting a baby bump, a rep for the Spanish stars confirmed Cruz’s long-rumored pregnancy last week — Cruz is 4 and 1/2 months along. But neither Cruz, 36, nor Bardem have spoken publicly about the good news.

Bardem wouldn’t reveal whether their baby-to-be will be a boy or girl. And what about fatherly words of wisdom? “It is a little too soon for me to be giving advice,” he quipped. “I don’t know yet, But I will found out soon.”

Earlier this week we got our first look at new co-stars Johnny Depp and Penélope Cruz filming their first scenes together on the Hawiian set of the upcoming sequel film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Today we get to see the pair on set again but this time they are rehearsing a scene out of costume aboard their pirate ship. Judging by these photos, it looks like Johnny and Penélope will have no trouble finding the right romantic chemistry to work together on this film:

Penélope Cruz has been getting used to life on the ocean waves by rehearsing with her Pirates Of The Caribbean co-star Johnny Depp onboard ship. Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, could be seen teaching Penélope some rather steamy dance moves too as she got her sealegs. Penélope, 36, makes her debut in the movie franchise in the fourth instalment: On Stranger Tides, which has just started filming in Hawaii. The Spanish sexbomb – who in real life, married long-term love and fellow actor Javier Bardem earlier this month – plays Angelica, Jack Sparrow’s love interest. She could be seen smooching on the vessel with Depp, who was brandishing a goblet and a bottle of what was presumably rum. At some points, the pair seemed as if they might be about to kiss as they gazed lovingly into each other’s eyes. Depp – in character as Captain Jack, though not in costume – could also be seen raising a toast to his dark beauty. With Depp leading what may well have been a tango, he twirled his partner around the deck, sending Cruz’s long locks flying. But then it seemed as if things got nasty between the pair, with Depp grabbing Cruz in a headlock – while still holding onto his all important bottle of rum. However, they were all smiles with each other once the rehearsal had finished and out of their salty seadog characters. has posted the first photos from the Hawaiian set for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides that give us a first look at Penélope Cruz in character! Cruz is playing a love interest of Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) and the daughter of his nemesis, Blackbeard (Ian McShane), her character is rumored to be named Angelica. Angelica is reportedly a character from Sparrow’s past, but the handsome Jack can’t figure out whether the mystery beauty is back for love or to con him in order to find the Fountain of Youth.
