Although the films were filmed back to back, they are being released in the same fashion as The Lord of the Rings
movie trilogy, one year apart, and filming for the third movie continues into 2006.Dead Man's Chest
premiered at Disneyland
in Anaheim, California
on June 24
, two days prior to the reopening day of the refurbished Pirates of the Caribbean
attraction on which the movie series is based. The refurbished attraction includes an adjusted storyline and Audio Animatronics
based on the movies and opened June 26
. The same attraction at Walt Disney World
also underwent refurbishment and reopened on July 6
in conjunction with the film's theatrical release.
) and Will Turner's
) wedding day is disrupted by Lord Cutler Beckett
) of the East India Trading Company
. Beckett threatens to execute them and former commodore James Norrington
) for aiding Jack Sparrow's escape. Beckett wants Jack Sparrow
and his compass, and Will agrees to search for both in exchange for clemency. Will finds the Black Pearl
run aground on Pelegosto
, a cannibal
-inhabited island where Jack and his crew are captive. Jack hid there after being visited by "Bootstrap Bill" Turner
, who is now enslaved on the Flying Dutchman
. Bootstrap delivered the Black Spot, a mark that Jack’s debt to Davy Jones is due. Thirteen years before, Jones raised the sunken Black Pearl
and made Jack captain. In exchange, Jack must now serve aboard the Dutchman
for 100 years or face the Kraken
Will, Jack and the crew escape Pelegosto, unexpectedly recruiting Pintel and Ragetti
along the way, and head to sea. Jack has obtained a drawing of a key leading to untold riches, but his magical compass fails. Jack agrees to give Will the compass if he helps find the key. Seeking assistance from Tia Dalma
), a voodoo priestess, Jack learns the compass will not work because he does not know what he truly wants. The key, Tia tells him, unlocks the Dead Man's Chest
containing Davy Jones' heart
. Whoever possesses the heart controls the oceans. Back at sea, Davy Jones finds Sparrow, who deviously attempts to barter Will in exchange for himself. But Jones demands 100 souls for Jack’s freedom and keeps Will as a "good faith payment."
Meanwhile, Governor Weatherby Swann
frees Elizabeth. Confronting Beckett at gunpoint, she forces him to validate a Letter of Marque
—a document intended to recruit Sparrow as a privateer
, but which she wants for Will. Going to Tortuga
, she finds Jack and Gibbs in a pub enlisting sailors. A fallen James Norrington also joins the crew, although he first tries to shoot Sparrow whom he blames for ruining his life. Jack convinces Elizabeth she can find Will by finding the chest. Using Jack's compass, she gets a bearing. They set sail for Isla Cruces
, unaware Davy Jones is also headed there. Once underway, tension arises between Jack and Elizabeth when each discovers the compass now points to the other. It is unclear if they desire one another or if each is seeking the other as a means to obtain what they truly want. left|thumb|200px|Jack Sparrow opens the Dead Man's Chest containing the heart of Davy Jones.
On Isla Cruces, Jack, Norrington and Elizabeth find the Dead Man's Chest. Will, who escaped the Dutchman
with help from his father, Bootstrap Bill, arrives with the key. Will wants to stab the heart to kill Davy Jones, but a duel erupts between him, Jack, and Norrington, each claiming it for their own purpose. Interrupted by Dutchman
sailors, Norrington escapes with the heart and the Letter of Marque. Jones’ crewmen retrieve the chest, unaware it is empty.
The Flying Dutchman
pursues the Black Pearl
, but with the wind behind them, they outrun her. Instead, Jones summons the Kraken. In a moment of cowardice, Jack abandons the ship in a long boat, but he returns in time to save the crew. He gives the order to abandon ship before the Kraken returns for a third attack. Realizing the Kraken only wants Sparrow, Elizabeth traps him on board, telling the others he chose to remain behind. As Jack charges the Kraken, it drags the "Pearl" and Jack to a watery grave. Davy Jones declares their debt settled, but soon discovers his Dead Man's Chest
is empty of the heart. Arriving in Port Royal, Norrington presents the heart and the Letter to Beckett in a bid to regain his career. Cutler Beckett now controls the seas.
The grieving crew seeks refuge with Tia Dalma. Consoling them, she asks if they would sail to World's End to bring Jack and the Black Pearl
back. All agree, and she says they will need a captain who knows those waters. Incredibly, the formerly dead Captain Barbossa
) descends the stairs, demanding to know what became of his ship. After the credits
, there is a brief sequence showing what happened to the dog that the cannibals chased away during the film, in which they appoint the dog as their new chief.

debuted, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
still sold about 200,000 more tickets than Spider-Man
did. The film is also the fastest to gross $100,000,000, doing so in only two days, as well as the fastest to gross $200,000,000 and $300,000,000 achieving those milestones in eight and sixteen days, respectively. The film was the second fastest to reach $400 million (in 45 days); Shrek 2
(2004) did this 2 days earlier (in forty-three days). The film was the fastest to reach 1,000,000,000 dollars worldwide (63 days). Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

the only consensus being that the film is overly long (2 hours, 31 minutes) and the plot difficult to follow. In contrast, as of September 2006 Dead Man's Chest
currently holds a 7.3/10 user rating on the Internet Movie Database with 46,895 votes.

Early reviews for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
were initially positive, but the days following the film's theatrical release revealed a virtual down-the-middle split between critics who thought it was a good piece of entertainment and those who believed otherwise. One critic, Michael Medved
, gave the film two stars (out of four), calling the plot "sloppy, ...convoluted and insipid."

On the other hand, Michael Booth of the Denver Post
awarded the movie three and a half stars, praising it as "two hours and 20 minutes of escapism that once again makes the movies safe for guilt-free fun."

some critics felt that the plot was patchy, with the film relying on an overabundance of humor, special effects and action scenes.

Many critics have also felt that Bill Nighy (Davy Jones) stole the show. Entertainment Weekly infamously featured a cover story about the movie, only to have their reviewer give it a D+. When the film hit huge, the magazine was slammed with angry e-mails.
Walt Disney Pictures has been questioned by the National Garifuna Council, a representative body of the Garifuna people, for what they feel is a racist portrayal of the Calinago, or Caribs, as cannibals in Dead Man's Chest. The Council called for what they considered to be a fair and accurate representation, and Disney responded that the script could not be altered. No known changes were made to the film.

*For a dose of authenticity in the final twist at the end of the film, the actors were not told, prior to filming, that Geoffrey Rush would be appearing in the movie. They were told, before the scene was shot, that the person coming down the stairs would be Anamaria from The Curse of the Black Pearl; the looks of surprise on their faces as Rush descends are genuine.
**Another authentic expression is Will's when he witnesses Jack and Elizabeth kissing. This was not put into Orlando Bloom's script so that the look would be real.
*Stellan Skarsgård and Jonathan Pryce also both appear in the movie Ronin but this is the first movie in which they do not share scenes.
*Legendary rocker Keith Richards, Depp's personal friend and inspiration for his flamboyant pirate persona, had originally agreed to appear in a cameo role as Jack Sparrow's father, but had to pull out due to a commitment with the Rolling Stones concert tour.

*The movie is tied into Virtual Magic Kingdom with players being able to win items from the official site. Items include a Captain Jack costume, a poster, a Davy Jones Organ, a Skeleton Monkey, and a Dead Man's Chest. The Captain Jack costume code however is extremely difficult to get, with a code generated for it only once every so many codes.
*For the film's release, the Walt Disney Company had the Pirates of the Caribbean rides in Walt Disney World and Disneyland redesigned to feature captain Jack Sparrow, Barbossa, and an appearance by the films' supernatural character Davy Jones as part of the attraction and reopened the day before the film's opening day.
*Tia Dalma's firefly-surrounded dwelling resembles a small shack seen at the beginning of the famous Disneyland ride.
*The coffin that Jack uses in the beginning of the film recalls the coffin Guybrush uses in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge when he is off to the voodoo lady's shack.
*It has been suggested that the film borrows from the Monkey Island series in other areas. However, Monkey Islands creator Ron Gilbert has stated that he himself borrowed ideas from Pirates of the Caribbean (theme park ride), Such as the dog holding keys in its mouth.
*One of the sailors on the trade ship suggests that Elizabeth’s dress belongs to “The ghost of a lady, widowed before her marriage... Searching for her husband, lost at sea.” This is a reference to the back story of another Disney ride, the Haunted Mansion.
*In the first visit to Tia Dalma's shack, there are clues that foreshadow Barbossa's resurrection.
**The undead monkey is seen interacting with someone offscreen with black, pirate-like boots, and seems to recognize whoever this may be.
**Jack steals a ring that was worn by Barbossa (in the scene from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; when Barbossa reaches out into the moonlight, you can see that it is the same ring).
**Jack is briefly shown handling a hat that looks like the one worn by Barbossa.
**The music playing while the crew approaches the shack is the theme of the pirates and Barbossa in the first movie.
*The Tortuga scene was inspired by part of the Disney attraction, and stuck closely to it, with the wild pirate revelers looking almost exactly like the theme park ride, particularly in the way they appear to chase each other in small circles akin to their animatronic counterparts on the ride.

*Many of the Tortuga scenes were unused shots from the first film and were on the second DVD of the collector's edition of the first film of Pirates.
*So far both movies of the series prominently feature references to iconic pirate songs; in the first the song Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me) is sung by several characters, most prominently Elizabeth and Jack, and a variation of it is featured in several scores in the movie, while in the second the title (and, subsequently, the treasure) reference the song Dead Man's Chest.
*The skull on the film's poster has a voodoo doll resembling Jack hanging from it. It also shares the red bandana Jack wears about his head.
* When Jack takes a ring from Tia Dalma's table, a heart-shaped locket is visible. When Will is getting the key from Davy Jones, a very similar-looking locket is seen open on the organ. This may mean that Tia Dalma was the woman Davy Jones fell in love with, or that the locket was used as the payment for the removal of Jones' heart.
* In the first two movies, references were made to Singapore. Modern Singapore was founded in 1819 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles as a trading post for the British East India Company. However, the island had been already known as Singapura in Malay since the 15th century.
* The East India Company was formed to trade with India and the East Indies and operated there and in the waters between there and the United Kingdom. The film is set in the West Indies, on the other side of the globe.
* This was the second Disney film to receive a PG-13 rating from the MPAA, the first being the previous Pirates film.
*This was also the first Disney film to use a new computer-generated Disney production logo before the film, but the old logo can still be seen in Brother Bear 2.
[cite web | url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XlGBxJuYqs | title=The New Disney Logo on YouTube|publisher=YouTube | ]
* Davy Jones' tentacle beard is comparable to the beard of Captain LeChuck from the Monkey Island series of videogames, specifically his wriggly, apparently living beard from Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge. Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert has stated on his blog that "if I'd thought of the squid tentacles for a beard, I would have done that."
*There is a scene in Tortuga where a man is being dunked in a well, and then comes up, spitting out some water. This reflects the scene in the original ride where the pirates are dunking the mayor.
*Another scene reflecting the original ride is when Jack returns to the Black Pearl after nearly abandoning them when the Kraken attacks. He shoots some barrels of gunpowder that explode, angering the Kraken. This is similar to the end of the Disneyland attraction, when the Pirates are shooting at each other and one shot hits a hanging barrel of gunpowder.
* In the song "Here I Come" by Fergie feat. will.i.am this movie is mentioned while he is rapping.
References to and similarities with the first film
There are various references throughout the movie to scenes and lines that were in the first film. These include, but are not limited to:
* Governor Swann accidentally pulls a candlestick off the prison wall, mirroring Will pulling one off of the Governor's wall in the first film.
* When Lord Cutler Beckett says in the beginning, "Jack Sparrow", Will and Elizabeth correct him saying, "Captain", a reference to Jack's habitual response whenever someone forgot or deliberately omitted his rank.
* Jack asks "Why is the rum always gone?" and advises people to keep the rum away from Elizabeth ("Hide the rum!") when he recognizes her as one of the new crew signed on in Tortuga. This mirrors a scene in the first film, in which Elizabeth destroyed a large cache of rum. Jack (who had particularly enjoyed the rum), had asked, "Why is the rum gone?" twice. (In Dead Man's Chest he answers his own question when he gets up, staggers, and says, "Oh, that's why..."
* While Will was searching for Jack, one of the fellows reported that Jack could definitely be found in Singapore. In the first movie, when Jack saves Elizabeth by cutting open her corset, one of the soldiers remarked that he wouldn't have thought of that, and Jack responded "Clearly, you've never been to Singapore."
* Another reference to rum is during an attempt to repel the Kraken; finding out there is no more gunpowder, Will gives the order to use the rum for the explosive device and the crew looked at each other in shock at this statement.
* Captain Barbossa is portrayed eating an apple, which was the symbol of Desire he often fondled in the previous film.
* While Will is searching for Jack at Tortuga, he runs into Giselle and Scarlett. During their brief meeting Giselle slaps Will in the face as a message to be given to Jack; this is a nod to the first film when Jack and Will visit Tortuga where Scarlett and Giselle slap Jack in the face. Will's facial reaction to the slap is also similar to Jack's facial reaction in the first film.
*Will's comment about getting to the island using a pair of sea turtles strapped to his feet echoes the story Gibbs told Will to explain how Jack escaped from the island he was marooned on prior to the events of the first film. Jack comments in response, "Not so easy, is it?"
*Just before the crew of the Black Pearl is to leave the island that the Dead Man's Chest is buried on, Jack hits Will over the head with an oar. Will did this to Jack in the first film.
*While Jack, Will, & Norrington are swordfighting, Elizabeth tries to break it up by pretending to faint from the heat to get them to save her. This references two scenes from first film: one where she faints (due to her corset) and falls from the fort, and one where she pretends to faint in order to distract Norrington and her father as Will saves Jack from being executed.
*While in the prison corridor at Port Royal, Governor Swann asks "Now where is that dog with the keys?". This is a reference to the dog being the guardian of the prison keys in the first movie. Prisoners often tempted the dog with a bone in an attempt the get the keys.
*Another reference to the dog is made when the prisoners are seen calling to Elizabeth in the same manner that they called to the dog.
*When escaping from the cannibals and climbing aboard the Black Pearl, Jack says, "Alas, my children! This is the day you shall always remember as the day that you almost... 'caught' is inaudible because he gets splashed in the face by a wave ... Captain Jack Sparrow." Jack says the same line at the beginning of the first film when he escapes after briefly holding Elizabeth hostage. He also says it at the end of the film before he falls off a ledge.
*When Jack and Will swordfight in the first movie, Jack asks Will, "You're not a eunuch are you?" He also tells Barbossa that Will's a eunuch after the Interceptor explodes. In the second film, when the cannibals bring Will to Jack, Jack describes Will as "Eunuchy snip-snip" while making a cutting motion with his fingers. In the special deleted scenes disk for the first movie, one of the pirates states, "I used to date a eunuch." Jack also describes Will as having a "lovely singing voice" in the first film (in relation to the eunuch joke). In the second film Jack calls Will a "terrific soprano."
*In both films, we see Jack Sparrow using a rather unorthodox method of transportation in his first scene. In the first film he stands atop the mast of a sinking dinghy. In the second, he uses a coffin and a skeletal leg as a paddle.
* Pintel says "Ello Poppet" to Elizabeth as he did in the first film.
* At the end of the first film Jack tells Norrington he was rooting for him. In the second film Jack says he's still rooting for him.
*In the first scene of The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mr. Gibbs makes Elizabeth stop singing about pirates because it's bad luck, he says. In Gibbs' first scene in Dead Man's Chest, Gibbs is singing a pirate song himself (although this is mainly because he is now a pirate himself).
*In one scene of the movie, Ragetti and Pintel are seen on a boat, rowing away. Then a dog appears with a set of keys. This implies they used the whistle and bone trick to attract the dog and retrieve the keys, the hopeful end result in the ride.
* When Jack takes Elizabeth hostage in Curse of the Black Pearl, he remarks, "I knew you'd warm up to me." When Norrington attempts to stop Will from stabbing Davy Jones' heart in Dead Man's Chest, Jack begins to say the same line before Norrington turns on him as well.
* After being knocked out by the oar swung by Jack, Will recovers on the Black Pearl while Elizabeth watches over him, recalling how they met in the first film.
* Both films feature a swordfight that ends up being fought on strange objects. In Curse it was a flat-bed cart, and in this film it is a giant wheel.
* Jack gives Barbossa's monkey to Tia Dalma, calling it an "undead" monkey. In a scene after the credits of the first movie, the monkey was seen stealing one of the pieces of cursed Aztec gold, thus becoming undead again.
* In the first movie, Barbossa looks at a ship through a telescope and Jack jumps right in front of him. In the second movie, Jack is looking at a ship through a telescope and Davy Jones appears right in front of him.
* In the first movie, Jack and Will find Gibbs lying unconscious in a sty. Norrington ends up in the same position after the bar fight and being knocked unconscious by Elizabeth.
* The shot of the East India Trading Company's flag at the beginning of Dead Man's Chest mirrors the shot of the Black Pearl's Jolly Roger at the beginning of Curse of the Black Pearl.
*The scene in which Lord Cutler Beckett is talking to Will he gets out a metal pole with a P at the end. Jack Sparrow has that same mark, as shown in the first film.
