Captain Jack is back...and so are Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, joined by a roistering shipload of characters both new and familiar, in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST—the epic second instalment in the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN saga. Once again we have starring Johnny Depp starring in his Academy Award-nominated role, Orlando Bloom and 2005 Best Actress Oscar nominee Keira Knightley.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski, Captain Jack sets sail on this all new adventure. In this swashbuckling and spectacular follow-up to the blockbuster 2003 film, the decidedly eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow is caught up in another tangled web of supernatural intrigue. Although the curse of the Black Pearl has been lifted, an even more terrifying threat looms over its captain and scurvy crew: it turns out that Jack owes a blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), Ruler of the Ocean Depths, who captains the ghostly Flying Dutchman, which no other ship can match in speed and stealth. Unless the ever-crafty Jack figures a cunning way out of this Faustian pact, he will be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation in the service of Jones. This startling development interrupts the wedding plans of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who once again find themselves thrust into Jack's misadventures, leading to escalating confrontations with sea monsters, very unfriendly islanders, flamboyant soothsayer Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris) and even the mysterious appearance of Will's long-lost father, Bootstrap Bill (Stellan Skarsgard).

Meanwhile, ruthless pirate hunter Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) of the East India Trading Company sets his sights on retrieving the fabled "Dead Man's Chest." According to legend, whomever possesses the Dead Man's Chest gains control of Davy Jones, and Beckett intends to use this awesome power to destroy every last Pirate of the Caribbean once and for all. For times are changing on the high seas, with businessmen and bureaucrats becoming the true pirates...and freewheeling, fun-loving buccaneers like Jack and his crew threatened with extinction.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST is a fantastical epic adventure which, like its successful predecessor, will take audiences on the ride of their lives.
