The $1 Billion Club

Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (already the largest grossing film in the studio's history) continues to do the unthinkable as today, it enters an exclusive club of films that have grossed more than $1 billion in worldwide boxoffice. Reportedly, only two other films have preceded Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest into the club, Titanic, which made $1.83 billion, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which grossed $1.13 billion. To date, Pirates has racked up more than $414 million in the US, putting it at number six on the all time chart, and giving it the further distinction of being the film to knock The Passion of the Christ off the all time top ten list! Good news for Orlando Bloom, who was in two of the films. Great news for Johnny Depp, who continues to move from art house fav to boxoffice "king of the world" without losing an ounce of his quirkiness. But why do we give a "Yo Ho Ho" about it?
