2006: The action-adventure sequel "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" opens in theaters. The movie, the second in the film franchise inspired by the Walt Disney theme park ride of the same name, starred Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. It would set several records in its first three days, with an opening weekend of $136 million in the United States, and it was, at the time, the fastest film ever to gross over $1 billion in the worldwide box office.
