'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' Synopsis

Captain Jack is back…and so are Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, joined by a roistering shipload of characters both new and familiar, in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST -- the epic second installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga. Once again we have JOHNNY DEPP starring in his Academy Award-nominated role, ORLANDO BLOOM and 2005 Best Actress Oscar nominee KEIRA KNIGHTLEY.

Produced by JERRY BRUCKHEIMER and directed by GORE VERBINSKI, Captain Jack sets sail on this all-new adventure. In this swashbuckling and spectacular follow-up to the blockbuster 2003 film, the decidedly eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow is caught up in another tangled web of supernatural intrigue. Although the curse of the Black Pearl has been lifted, an even more terrifying threat looms over its captain and scurvy crew: it turns out that Jack owes a blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones (BILL NIGHY), Ruler of the Ocean Depths, who captains the ghostly Flying Dutchman, which no other ship can match in speed and stealth. Unless the ever-crafty Jack figures a cunning way out of this Faustian pact, he will be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation in the service of Jones. This startling development interrupts the wedding plans of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who once again find themselves thrust into Jack’s misadventures, leading to escalating confrontations with sea monsters, very unfriendly islanders, flamboyant soothsayer Tia Dalma (NAOMIE HARRIS) and even the mysterious appearance of Will’s long-lost father, Bootstrap Bill (STELLAN SKARSGÅRD).

Meanwhile, ruthless pirate hunter Lord Cutler Beckett (TOM HOLLANDER) of the East India Trading Company sets his sights on retrieving the fabled “Dead Man’s Chest.” According to legend, whoever possesses the Dead Man’s Chest gains control of Davy Jones, and Beckett intends to use this awesome power to destroy every last Pirate of the Caribbean once and for all. For times are changing on the high seas, with businessmen and bureaucrats becoming the true pirates ... and freewheeling, fun-loving buccaneers like Jack and his crew threatened with extinction.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST is a fantastical epic adventure which, like its successful predecessor, will take audiences on the ride of their lives.

Along with Depp, Bloom and Knightley, cast members returning to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST include JACK DAVENPORT as disgraced British Commodore James Norrington; JONATHAN PRYCE as Elizabeth’s aristocratic father, Governor Weatherby Swann; KEVIN R. McNALLY as often-soused sailor Joshamee Gibbs; LEE ARENBERG and MACKENZIE CROOK as eternally bickering and philosophizing piratical best mates Pintel and Ragetti; DAVID BAILIE as the silent Cotton, whose parrot does all the talking; and MARTIN KLEBBA as the diminutive but tough Marty, unafraid to go up against adversaries three times his size.

They’re joined by a group of distinguished international stars in other major roles, including BILL NIGHY (“Love, Actually,” “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”) as Davy Jones, daunting Lord of the Deep; STELLAN SKARSGÅRD (“King Arthur,” “Good Will Hunting”) as Bootstrap Bill Turner, Will’s long-lost father; NAOMIE HARRIS (“28 Days Later,” “Miami Vice”) as Tia Dalma; TOM HOLLANDER (“The Libertine,” “Pride & Prejudice”) as Lord Cutler Beckett, who, as head of the East India Trading Company, seeks to forever destroy the age of the pirates; and DAVID SCHOFIELD (“The Last of the Mohicans,” “Gladiator”) as Mercer, Beckett’s ruthless enforcer.
