Thanks to the international box office of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Mickey Mouse is somewhere right now yelling, "I'm rich biatch!" The film, now approaching the one-billion mark, continues to dominate overseas and destroy all the latest competition.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Going for a Billion


According to Variety, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest almost matched the combined grosses of Miami Vice, Garfield 2 and Superman Returns while taking in a healthy $25.5 million in 51 markets. This is Pirates seventh straight weekend as the box office king overseas.

With this seventh victory, Dead Man's Chest has begun to slide past Curse of the Black Pearl's record number from 2003. Now that the second Pirates installment has tackled Phantom Menace and The Two Towers at the box office, the film's next opposition will be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for the number three spot. So far Dead Man's Chest has made $522 million overseas with a worldwide total of $923 million.

With respectable drops from week to week overseas, Dead Man's Chest looks pretty unstoppable. Whether Disney will drop some of this extra coin into the next Pirates installment is yet to be known.



Though I am one of the many who found the first film to be better, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was one of the few films this summer filled with all-out fun. When people are trying to escape today's serious issues such as terrorism and Iraq, it seems like a no-brainer that the lightest, but still big-budget, fair would be the way to go.

One goal Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest missed was the $500 million mark for domestic ticket sales. 2006 has been a huge year for the international box office.

Stay tuned for updates.
