Avast ye, scurvy dogs of naysayers. Who says a film based largely on Johnny Depp in mascara and a bloke with an octopus for a face can’t pillage the finest $1 billion in box office booty? "Dead Man’s Chest" has joined the elite club of select films with the biggest piles of plunder this side of Halliburton.

From Variety: "It is mainly recent foreign biz that’s pushed "Dead Man’s Chest" over the 10-figure mark. The pic’s remained dominant internationally with a nine-weekend winning streak and, as of Tuesday, had cumed around $583 million offshore."

The third installment, "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End," hits theaters on May 25, 2007.’ Click here to read the full story.
