The Australian premiere of “Pirates of the Caribbean: on stranger tides” was held yesterday, May 17th at George St. cinemas, with a very special guest, Geoffrey Rush, Captain Barbossa himself walked the “Black Carpet” among some local celebrities.
It was a great venue, with kids walking around with Pirate customs, fans of the saga and people who wanted to see this amazing actor closer, and none of them was disappointed.
Rush arrived at 6.15 pm as it was scheduled, he immediately meet and greet the fans around the carpet, before doing all the media. He happily signed autographs asking the names of every single person around making the best personalized autographs ever dreamed for any fan. Not only that, Mr. Rush also did photos with almost everyone there. Hand shakes, kisses, hugs were also on the list, showing all the crowd what a great kind of person he is, despite the fact he is one of the best actors in the film industry, Oscar awarded and nominated almost every year, he still keeps his modest attitude around, an amazing example for other growing actors and celebrities in general.After the first round of happy fans, Geoffrey Rush went to the media area. He was very talkative with everyone, taking his time to answer. Then he posed at the media wall next to his character poster and then on the main area, just to continue greeting more fans at the end of the carpet, again stopping for all of them and getting the love and admiration of everyone who wanted to meet him, dismissing the people trying to rush him inside the cinema.
Geoffrey Rush is for sure a world-class actor and a nice person…That is the spirit!

About the film:
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), 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.
