It begins in Port Royal on what was meant to be the wedding day of Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom). However their misadventures at the end of the previous film, rescuing Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), come back to haunt them with the arrival of Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company bearing arrest warrants for the couple. But Lord Beckett offers Will a reprieve if he can get Captain Jack's "broken" compass (which, in reality, points towards one's true desire) for the Company, and so Will finds himself once again thrown into the world of supernatural piracy.  Meanwhile Will's father, "Bootstrap Bill" Turner (Stellan Skarsgård), appears to Captain Jack to give him the Black Spot and warn him that it is time to repay an old debt to the legendary Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) — ruler of the ocean depths and captain of the Flying Dutchman, a ghostly ship crewed by all manner of lost sailors, whose bodies gradually mix with those of various aquatic fauna and eventually assimilate into the ship itself. The debt was for reviving the Black Pearl and making Jack Sparrow captain for 13 years. To chase up the debt, Davy Jones has released the gigantic ferocious Kraken, forcing Jack to flee the seas whilst being pursued by an unimaginable terror. Jack decides to head for land. Any land.  With time running out, Jack must find a way out of his debt or else be doomed to eternal damnation and servitude in his afterlife. Meanwhile, Will is seeking Jack's compass, Davy Jones is trying to protect his heart (which has been removed and buried on a secret island), Elizabeth is looking to rescue the man she loves, Bootstrap wants to save his son from the fate he suffered, Ex-Commodore Norrington (Jack Davenport) wants to regain his honour, Governor Weatherby Swann (Jonathan Pryce) will do anything to protect his daughter, the crew of the Black Pearl are mutinous about the lack of gold.  After a fruitless search for Jack, Will finally gets word that the Black Pearl is abandoned on a remote island. Travelling there, he finds a superstitious native tribe, who have crowned Jack as their king. Jack orders him to be taken away — but not before whispering "Save me" to Will. This is explained by the crew of the Black Pearl (with whom Will ends up trapped) — the local cannibals believe Jack is a god and must be killed in order to be free from his "mortal prison".  As the crew are seen trying to escape their captivity, Jack gets a temporary reprieve and manages to escape as well. They meet up back at the Pearl, picking up Ragetti (Mackenzie Crook) and Pintel (Lee Arenberg) on the way.  There Jack and Will begin negotiating—Jack says he will give Will the compass as long as Will gets him the key to a chest where Davy Jones keeps his heart. In a visit 'up river' to Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris) they swap Barbossa's undead monkey (also named Jack) for information on Davy Jones, the location of the Flying Dutchman, and a jar of dirt. Tia tells Will the legend of Davy Jones, telling him that he had cut out his own heart because of love. She also explains that Davy Jones cannot set foot on land for another 10 years, so the dirt is land that will protect Jack Sparrow. They set sail for the Flying Dutchman.  Finding a wreck, Will volunteers to go across and find the key. Sadly it's a trap — the wrecked ship is not the Dutchman but its prey. Will is caught by Davy Jones and his crew while looking for the key on the wreck. Through his spyglass, Jack Sparrow sees the face of Davy Jones as he looks over his captives and when he pulls the glass away from his eye, is suddenly confronted by him. By playing on the stories of why Davy Jones had removed his heart, he tells him that Will is a man in love and was to be married. This seems to strike a chord with the merciless captain of the Dutchman, and Sparrow manages to talk him into taking Will aboard as a temporary part of his undead crew in exchange for three days in which Sparrow will find 99 souls. Davy Jones agrees and presses Will into his crew without telling him of the deal that was just made. Winning a temporary reprieve in buying more time, Jack sets sail for Tortuga.  Meanwhile, Elizabeth Swann has had a bungled escape attempt organised by her father. She manages to escape with a letter of marque — letters making someone a privateer, not a pirate. She has wound up in Tortuga as well, and ends up enlisted for the Black Pearl along with the now-disgraced Ex-Commodore Norrington, who is looking to regain his position and honour. Jack convinces her the only way she can regain Will is by finding Davy Jones' heart, and she uses his compass to navigate them there.  On the Flying Dutchman, Will meets his father, and they both play Davy Jones at Liar's dice in an attempt to win the key. They lose, but Will later steals it and rows to a ship. Davy Jones realises this means that Jack is after his heart. He catches the ship Will is on and summons the Kraken. The Kraken destroys the ship and kills all aboard, (save for Will, who escapes), while Davy Jones sets sail for the island the heart is buried on.  Both crews arrive at the island at much the same time, although Davy Jones sends his sailors to retrieve the chest as he cannot set foot on land for ten more years. Jack, Norrington and Elizabeth use the compass to find the chest. Will appears and is reunited with Elizabeth. The chest precipitates a three-way duel between Jack, Will and Norrington for possession of it. As they are occupied, Davy Jones's crew arrive and attack Ragetti and Pintel who have taken the chest while Jack, Will, and Norrington fight each other. Elizabeth chases both Ragetti and Pintel, eventually fleeing and fighting with them as Davy Jones' crew catch up with the chest they were carrying. They manage to fight them as Jack manages to get away from Will and Norrington. He opens the dropped chest, taking Davy Jones' heart and closing it again. He puts it in the jar of dirt he brought with him when he runs and makes it back to the longboat. Eventually, while Jack is distracted, Norrington sees both the chest and the jar of dirt in the longboat. He makes the "brave" gesture of taking the chest and running with it to draw Davy Jones' crew away from the others to help them make their escape not telling them that he has already taken the heart from the jar. Jack, still thinking that he has the heart, agrees and the others flee. Norrington is cornered by Davy Jones' crew, but plays the coward and drops the chest to run away while they laugh.  Escaping the island, the Pearl is finally caught by the Kraken. After a vicious struggle, the jar holding the dirt is broken and emptied revealing that the heart is no longer in it. Jack frantically searches what is left as the crew prepare to defend the ship from the Kraken. During the battle, Elizabeth catches sight of Jack rowing away from the boat, calling him a coward. Later on, as Jack is rowing away from the embattled ship, he is shown looking at his compass before deciding whether or not to go back and help. Will and the rest of the crew have managed to put together a trap to help defend the ship and it is during that final battle against the Kraken that Elizabeth runs into Jack who has returned. He fires a shot into the trap of gunpowder that drives the Kraken away for the moment, but it is enough to buy the crew time to escape. He gives the painful order to abandon ship.  However, Elizabeth realises the Kraken is specifically after Jack. She kisses him passionately, but uses the opportunity to chain him to the mast as the rest of the crew escape from the ship. Will sees this kiss, but says nothing. This references an earlier scene in which both Elizabeth and Jack told the other that one day their curiosity would get the better of them, and that they would change their ways, if only for a short period. Jack has seemingly decided to show his good side by returning to help at the risk of his own life, while Elizabeth for once throws her own sense of honour and decency to the wind, both by kissing Jack, and by chaining him to the mast to save herself. In the end though, she truly seems sad at the idea despite her telling Jack that it's the only way to save them, and that she's not sorry. There are also two specific scenes where the voodoo compass wavers towards Jack while under the influence of Elizabeth, insinuating some ulterior feelings on her part. She tells everybody in the lifeboat they escape in that Jack has decided to remain aboard and go down with his ship and they sail away from the Black Pearl. Jack manages to slip out of his shackles just as the Kraken appears on all sides of the ship, trapping him. Jack grabs a sword and the last we see of him he is smiling and saying, "Hello, beastie," and attacking the Kraken as the monster destroys the Black Pearl and drags her underwater to her grave. Davy Jones sees this and proclaims Jack's debt fulfilled. However, he then realises that something is not right and asks to see the "chest" (which used to contain his heart). After realizing his heart has been misplaced, he looks up into the sky and shouts, "Damn you, Jack Sparrow!"  Norrington then reappears in Port Royal and reports to Beckett. To Beckett's surprise, Norrington does not deliver Sparrow's magical compass, but another, more powerful item, the heart of Davy Jones (which we now learn has power to "control the sea").  The Pearl's survivors revisit Tia Dalma, where they drink a toast to Jack (during which time Will is still distrustful of Elizabeth following the kiss he witnessed) and then are told that they can still bring him and the Black Pearl back; they all agree. Tia says if they are to manage this, they will need to go to the world's end and will need a strong captain who knows where to go and be able to steer a ship like the devil himself. After they agree Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), who died at the end of the first film, enters, presumably resurrected by the voodoo priestess. He asks about his ship, then starts laughing and bites into a shiny green apple (his one desire from the first film) as the film ends. His undead pet monkey accompanies him out.  After the credits there is a brief sequence showing the cannibals have now adopted the stowaway key-taunting dog from the first movie as their new king.


The movie will be shot back-to-back with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

Rolling Stone Keith Richards was set to make a cameo appearance as the father of Captain Jack Sparrow but Richards had to pull out of the project due to his commitment with the Rolling Stones world tour. Johnny Depp had previously said that his performance was based on Richards.

Keira Knightley had to wear hair extensions because she had cut her hair short for her role in Domino.

The gigantic wheel weighed at 1800 pounds standing at 18 feet tall.

This was first time Johnny Depp portrayed the same character in more than one movie.

For the film’s release, the Walt Disney Company had the Pirates of the Caribbean rides in Walt Disney World and Disneyland redesigned to feature captain Jack Sparrow, Barbossa, and an appearance by the films' supernatural character Davy Jones as part of the attraction and will be featured beginning on the film's opening day.

In June of 2006, the "Flying Dutchman" set ship was towed to Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line's private island where it was displayed in promotion release of the movies.

The Black Pearl is the only ship in the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and its sequel which operate under power. All others are built atop other ships such as barges with only the portions seen by the cameras completed.

Information about the two sequels to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was revealed at a Disney Investor Conference Studio Presentation in 2005. The title for the first sequel Dead Man's Chest was revealed, and a second sequel, confirmed to be "At World's End", was promised for a May 2007 theatrical release.

Filming began on February 28, 2005, with locations once again in the Costa Alegre, in Jalisco (Mexico) and Barrouallie, St. Vincent. The sequel also includes location shooting in Dominica as well as The Bahamas. The filmmakers are largely shooting the two sequels back-to-back, ā la The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions as well as Back to the Future Part II and Part III, although throughout 2005 Dead Man's Chest was the main focus of attention, with a collection of scenes for the third movie being shot. Because of the back-to-back setup, filming Dead Man's Chest did not finish until February 7, 2006.[2] Although they were filmed back to back they are being released in the same fashion as The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, one year apart, and filming for the third movie continues into 2006.

Dead Man's Chest premiered at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on June 24, 2006, two days prior to the re-opening day of the refurbished Pirates of the Caribbean attraction on which the movie series is based. The refurbished attraction includes an adjusted storyline and Audio-Animatronics based on the movies and opened June 26, 2006.

Walt Disney Pictures has been questioned by the National Garifuna Council, a representative body of the Garifuna people, for what many feel is a racist portrayal of the Calinago, or Caribs, as cannibals in Dead Man's Chest. Despite the call for what the Council considers a fair and accurate representation, Disney has responded that the script cannot be altered, and at this point, no known changes have been made to rectify any potential defamation of the Carib people's character and history.
