The first official teaser poster for Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides has been released and its nothing to write home about. The image surfaced over on IMP Awards and it looks similar to the teaser posters for the previous films. Over the past few months the sequel has been shooting in Hawaii and London and should be wrapping up fairly soon, which explains this release. Check out the poster below…

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth when a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane).The film also stars Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane, Gemma Ward, Stephen Graham, Richard Griffiths, Kevin R. McNally, Sam Clafin, and Óscar Jaenada.

What are the differences in this skull and sword poster that separates it from the previous ones? We noticed that the skull isn’t made of bone, it appears to be some kind of metal. The teeth are all gold and silver, and there’s a different medallion hanging from its headband. What did you pick up on?

The film opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20, 2011.
