Are you ready for Pirates 4?

If so you've got a wait ahead of you since the movie doesn't hit theaters for another three years.

However we can help you out by telling you the name of the film so you can stop referring to it as the fourth one.

Here it is: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Today, the big announcement was made at the Walt Disney Co.'s D23 Expo in Anaheim, just as Johnny Depp himself surprised an audience of 5,000 people by appearing on stage, in full costume and character, as Captain Jack Sparrow!

Johnny arrived in style in a gliding replica of his famous Black Pearl ship and cracked jokes with the audience about rum and the tasty dish that appeared before him - Kermit the Frog! Johhny Jack joked: "probably tastes like chicken."

Pirates 4 has HUGE worldwide opening. Vote in the OP poll @ hidefninja. What's your favorite Pirates movie?

Per CNN:

Now more than ever, the entire world knows the name of Captain Jack Sparrow. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" opened globally this weekend, and while it performed admirably in the U.S., its $256.3 million opening overseas -- the largest foreign debut ever -- is why Disney executives will be swigging celebratory bottles of rum tonight.

Domestically, the $250 million film plundered $90.1 million, passing "Fast Five's" $86.2 million debut to secure the year's largest opening. However, the 3-D adventure movie fell short of the last two "Pirates" entries; by comparison, 2006's "Dead Man's Chest" opened to $135.6 million, and 2007's "At World's End" took in $114.7 million. "On Stranger Tides," the fourth title in the "Pirates" series, also garnered the franchise's weakest reviews, but CinemaScore audiences handed the PG-13 film a favorable "B+" grade.

Creating its own box-office news was the R-rated comedy "Bridesmaids," which fell a mere 20 percent for $21.1 million. That's a smaller second-weekend drop than 2009's "The Hangover," and a far better hold than 2008's "Sex and the City," which plummeted 63 percent its second week.

"Thor," which lost many of its 3-D and IMAX screens to "Pirates," didn't fare as well. The PG-13 superhero movie declined 55 percent for $15.5 million, pushing its three-week tally to $145.4 million.

In fourth place, "Fast Five" skidded 48 percent for $10.6 million. With $186.2 million in the vault so far, the street-racing movie will attempt to become the year's first movie to reach $200 million domestically.

In fifth, the animated avian flick "Rio' slipped 44 percent for $4.7 million.
And right behind it was the horror action film "Priest," which earned $4.6 million -- a monstrous fall of 69 percent.

In limited release, "Midnight in Paris" -- the new Woody Allen romantic comedy starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams -- collected $579,000 from just six locations. Its estimated per-theater tally of $96,500 is the 15th best opening-weekend average on record, beating the likes of "There Will Be Blood," "The King's Speech," and "Black Swan".
Check back next week as two sequels, "The Hangover Part II" and "Kung Fu Panda 2," open on Thursday for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
