Dead Man's Chest poster imageHere’s another interesting bit of news from Disney: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest has taken in over $800 million worldwide thus far. Disney spent a very large amount of money on promotiing the film, to be sure, but that doesn’t always work.

Hence, $800 mil is an impressive box office intake for a film that got mediocre to poor reviews.

I thought Pirates II was terrific, and I’m glad to see that the audiences once again outsmarted the critics.

‘Tis often thus.
