THE film that put the buck in buccaneers opened with panache in California at the weekend, when stars including Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp and Keith Richards took to the red carpet at the premiere of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

Disneyland in Anaheim, California, was the venue for the gala charity viewing of the movie, the proceeds from which will go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

The US movie industry is hoping that Jack Sparrow's latest adventure will turn the tide in what has been an unspectacular year of film so far.

The latest outing of the movie franchise sees Sparrow, played by the always inventive Depp, embarking on an unlikely quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it, too.
