Voice-over by Geoffrey Rush:
It's the Year of Our Lord, Sixteenhundred-and-Seventy-two...
(shots of some of our heroes)
...Many a man and woman has been drawn to the Caribbean...
(shot of a flag, bearing St George's Cross, which is suddenly drawn taut by a gale)
...But a storm is brewing...
(shot of storm clouds speeding across the bay, where white foam heads the waves. Thunder is heard.)
...What will Fate bring?!
(shot of a shambling pirate zombie. Lightning flashes, all sounds suddenly stop)
(sounds pick up, pace of background music quickens)
(fly-by shot of a small pirate ship, bearing the skull & bones and in full sail, cruising in a firm wind)
... a motley crew gathers...
... to fight ...
(shot of two rapiers clashing, sparks are flying)
... to woo ...
(shot of a feisty, beautiful girl kissing a ruggedly handsome guy)
... to carouse.
(shot of two mugs of foaming ale are raised and clunked)
(screen dissolves into blackness. A match is struck, and flaming golden letters come into view.)
What will Fate deliver?
