Disney's Pirates Sets More Records

Disney's Pirates Sets More Records
Exactly how much gold bullion is in ‘Dead Mans Chest'? The Pirates of the Caribbean sequel starring Johnny Depp has become only the third film ever to gross over 1 Billion worldwide. That's a B, not for bullion, but billion.

The only other films to accomplish such a feat are Titanic and The Lord Of the Rings: The Return of the king. The film has been extremely well received aboard even though it has been off top 10 domestic charts for weeks. Despite this, a solid labor day weekend pushed its domestic total to 414 million. International totals stand at $583 million with Japan and the U.K. showing great interest in the film.

Its not over for Captain Jack Sparrow and crew. The final installment opens May 25, 2007 entitled "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At Worlds End" The World, it seems has been very good to Pirates.
