ABOUT PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL
In PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, for the roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) the crystalline waters of the Caribbean present a vast playground where adventure and mystery abound. But Jack’s idyllic life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) steals his ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port Royal, while kidnapping the Governor's (Jonathan Pryce) beautiful daughter, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Elizabeth’s childhood friend, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), joins forces with Jack to commandeer the fastest ship in the British fleet, the HMS Interceptor, in a gallant attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl. The duo and their crew are pursued by Elizabeth’s betrothed, the debonair, ambitious Commodore Norrington (Jack Davenport,“The Talented Mr. Ripley”) aboard the HMS Dauntless. Unbeknownst to Will, there is a curse that has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live forever as the undead – when exposed to moonlight, they are transformed into living skeletons. The curse they carry can be broken only if a once-plundered treasure is restored. Stunning visual effects bring these formidable foes to life as our valiant heroes clash mightily with Barbossa and his invincible pirates of the Caribbean.
