Walt Disney Pictures has released a brand new character poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides featuring newbie lovers Philip Swift (Sam Claflin) and the mermaid Syrena (Astrid Berges-Frisbey)
Philip Swift Character Description: Idealistic, courageous and fearless, this missionary defies even Blackbeard in an attempt to rescue the terrible pirate’s soul.
Philip Swift is on a mission completely unlike the pirates, scalawags, kings and sailors all in pursuit of the Fountain of Youth. His is a mission of salvation, and even when taken prisoner by Blackbeard and ruthlessly tortured, Philip’s spirit remains unbroken. But something stirs inside of his heart as well as his soul when he encounters the mermaid he calls Syrena on the quest for the Fountain of Youth—feelings which prove that the path to real deliverance may lie beyond the Good Book he carries with him.
Adapted from the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, the movie is directed by Rob Marshall and also stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Griffiths, Judi Dench, Stephen Graham and Gemma Ward.
