Pirates 3 to hit India on 25 May

MUMBAI: Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End will release in India on 25 May 2007.

Directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Bruckheimer, the film stars Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Naomie Harris, and introduces Chow Yun-Fat as a new addition to the third Pirates story.

The Pirates’ trailer will be screened in Inox theatres in India between 21-25 March 2007 and in the PVR chain of theatres in New Delhi, NCR and Lucknow.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End picks up where Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006) left off, with heroes Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones’ locker.

The added attraction of the third installment is an appearance by aging Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards, who was part of Depp’s acting inspiration, as Sparrow’s father. He has been pursued for a cameo appearance since the first installment of the series.
