On Pirates of the Caribbean:

Pirates of the Caribbean is a series of fantasy adventure comedy films produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on Walt Disney’s theme park ride of the same name. Directors of the series include Gore Verbinski (13), Rob Marshall (4), and Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg (5). The series was scripted by Terry Rossio, Ted Elliott (1–4), and Jeff Nathanson (5), with the stories following the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). The films take place in a fictional historical setting; a world ruled largely by an amalgam of alternative, evil versions of the British Empire and the East India Company, with the pirates representing freedom from the ruling powers.

The films started with their first release on the big screen in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. After the first film’s success, Walt Disney Pictures revealed that a trilogy was in the works. The franchise’s second film, subtitled Dead Man’s Chest, was released three years later in 2006; the sequel proved successful, breaking financial records worldwide the day of its premiere. The third film in the series, subtitled At World’s End, was released in 2007. Disney released a fourth film, subtitled On Stranger Tides, on May 20, 2011 in conventional 2D, Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D. It succeeded in grossing more than $1 billion, becoming the eighth film in history to achieve this. So far, the film franchise has grossed $3.72 billion worldwide; it is the sixth highest-grossing film series of all-time; and it was the first franchise that has more than one film that has reached $1 billion worldwide.
