"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" has drawn total sum of $1,002.6 billion to officially become only the third film in history to break $1 billion barrier worldwide.


Turning out as expected, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" finally made its way to strive past $1 billion mark in worldwide box office after impressively collecting a total worldwide income of $1,002.6 billion, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios Dick Cook officially announced on Saturday, September 9, 2006.

Already topped the international box office for nine consecutive weeks, the seafaring tale thus becomes the third big screen feature in the history to accomplish such achievement after the 1997's "Titanic" and 2003's "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." "This is truly an historical time for The Walt Disney Studios and a time to celebrate," Cook remarked following the statement. "The film's phenomenal success all over the world proves once again that audiences will vote to come back again and again when presented with great entertainment."

With this attainment, "Dead Man's Chest" therefore is the highest grossing film in Buena Vista history as well as the most popular international release in the history of The Walt Disney Studios. The flick itself previously proved to be the highest three-day opening in box-office history with $135.6 million and only needed 16 days to pass $300 million mark while also being the biggest Buena Vista International opening of all-time in more than 40 countries around the globe, including Australia, Germany, and Singapore.
