Yes - that is a RED ONE camera - positioned in the top half of a stereoscopic 3D rig shooting Jerry Bruckheimer's PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES! Cool to see them in action.

I have to say Johnny Depp's carriage jumping scene looks amazing! Not to mention the size of the sets. The behind the scenes shots in this clip are from the London location; they are also shooting in Hawaii and Los Angeles.

This iteration of the PIRATES franchise is supposedly meant to stand on its own however we have just heard a rumor that the fifth and sixth installments will be probably shot back to back - though this is not confirmed.

Here's the official storyline:
In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love–or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

I don't see this franchise faltering ANY time soon.
Too much iconic character in Captain Jack Sparrow and Depp is practically reveling in it. Who wouldn't in his shoes? Stay tuned for more right here on MarketSaw - the best spot on the interwebs for 3D entertainment news!

ON STRANGER TIDES rises in theaters May 20, 2011.
