In an effort to ensure only the franchise’s biggest fans get the first crack at seeing the trailer, Disney is doing something decidedly unique with its release of the first glimpse of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment: they’re running a contest to give serious fans the first peek.
The trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the highly anticipated fourth movie in the series, will debut at a special event on Monday, December 13 at Downtown Disney District in California. The catch? The event is invitation-only, and fans must win a pass to attend.
To enter for a chance to win, you have a few options: you can “like” Yahoo! Movies on Facebook; or you can enter to win at www.DisneyMovieRewards.com. If neither of these options interests you, fans may also win a spot by calling into 102.7 KIIS-FM in Los Angeles, beginning Monday, December 6.
The trailer will be shown in Theatre 12 of AMC Downtown Disney in Anaheim. Following the exclusive event, the trailer will be released at Yahoo! Movies the same day at 1 p.m. PST. If you miss out on the contest and your internet goes down, tune into Entertainment Tonight the same evening at 7 p.m. EST for your first glimpse of Captain Jack’s latest adventure.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, and Ian McShane.
