First footage of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'

The trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides tomorrow, but today we have the first footage courtesy of Enterainment Tonight’s visit to the set.  The clip is a bit scattershot in focus, but features Johnny Depp hopping across the tops of carriages in a neat set piece, a look at franchise newbie Penelope Cruz in action, and commentary from producer Jerry Bruckheimer among some truly impressive sets built on location in Hawaii and London.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — directed by Rob Marshall — hits 3D theaters on May 20, 2011.Hit the jump to watch the footage.

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. 
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow again as well as Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mermaid. The story in this is based on Tim Powers' book, which focuses heavily on the Fountain of Youth that was hinted at in the conclusion of At World's End. Chicago and Nine director Rob Marshall is helming this fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film and shooting starts this summer, primarily in Hawaii. If it is indeed being shot from the start in 3D, then it should be pretty cool to watch in 3D. It's still set for release on May 20th, 2011 next summer. Who's in?
