Disney's swashbuckling franchise-starter stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, a hornswaggled corsair who declares war on his mutinous crew when they make off with his beloved ship The Black Pearl. Described as "without doubt the worst pirate I've ever seen", the deranged dandy is out for revenge after ex first mate Cap'n Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) marooned him on a desert island. To complicate matters, the gold stashed on the Pearl carries a curse... which, in the moonlight, turns all aboard into the ultimate 'skeleton crew'. Adding to the stormy mix are a fearless blacksmith called Will (Orlando Bloom) and a feisty governor's daughter (Keira Knightley) who holds the key to the curse. Anchors aweigh!
