Go Inside the “Pirates of the Caribbean” Meet and Greet with Sam Claflin & Astrid Berges-Fri​sbey!


Hey CelebSecrets4U readers,

On Sat, April 30th, Disney & Hot Topic came together to celebrate the launch of the month long Pirates takeover of Hot Topic stores around the country, all leading up to the upcoming release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, sailing into theatres on May 20th.  Joined by new cast members, Astrid Berges-Frisbey & Sam Claflin, Hot Topic fans will helped  kickoff the flagship store, a fully immersive POTC experience that incorporates an interactive film-themed store environment, real props & costumes used in the filming of the movie, fan photo opp locations, plus a life-sized Pirate ship crashing into the Hollywood & Highland courtyard for a truly photo-worthy opportunity for all.   Sam & Astrid also helped to kickoff the Pirates / Hot Topic partnership with a special ceremonial “christening” of the Queen Ann’s Revenge ship, plus an exclusive meet & greet and signing with the Hot Topic Pirates fans. 

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, excitement and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in this action-packed adventure that finds him crossing paths (and swords) with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope Cruz). When she forces him aboard the “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth. Along the way Jack must use all his wiles to deal with the barbarous Blackbeard and his crew of zombies, Angelica, the ravishing pirate with whom he shares a dubious past, and the beautiful, enchanting mermaids whose masterful cunning can lure even the most seasoned sailor to his doom. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the indestructible Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
