电影故事：Pirates of the Caribbean:
The Curse of the Black Pearl
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the
Black Pearl is an Academy Award nominated, 2003 pirate adventure film set
in the Caribbean somewhere in the early-to-mid 18th century. It was inspired by
the Pirates of the Caribbean attractions at Disney theme parks around the world,
developed by Walt Disney himself. Pirates was directed by Gore
Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and became the first Walt Disney
Pictures release to earn a PG-13 rating by the MPAA (all previous WDP releases
were rated G or PG).
Pirates grossed almost $654 million worldwide, becoming the 22nd
highest grossing film in the United States. It proved to be a success for Walt
Disney Pictures and, within weeks of its release, the studio announced that a
sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was in development
(it was released in the United States on July 7, 2006). Pirates of the
Caribbean: At World's End is in post-production, and is slated for a May
25, 2007 release.
When production for the film was first announced in early 2002, movie fans
and critics were skeptical of its chances of success; the concept of Disney
basing a movie upon one of its own theme-park rides seemed to many a crass
marketing ploy. Additionally, the genre of pirate-themed movies had seen a
string of big-budget flops (Cutthroat Island, and Treasure
Planet, among others). However, Pirates made it.
