Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End is a 2007 American epic fantasy swashbuckler film and the third installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The plot follows Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and the crew of the Black Pearl rescuing Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from Davy Jones’s Locker, and then preparing to fight the East India Trading Company, led by Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander), who controls Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) and plans to extinguish piracy forever. It is the last film in the series to be directed by Gore Verbinski. It was filmed in two shoots during 2005 and 2006, the former simultaneously with the preceding film, Dead Man’s Chest.
The film was released in English-speaking countries on May 25, 2007, by Walt Disney Pictures. Critical reviews were mixed. The film was praised for its performances, musical score, action scenes, and special effects, but was criticized for its plot and running time. At World’s End was a box office hit, becoming the most successful film of 2007, with over $960 million worldwide.
It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling and the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, which it lost to La Vie en Rose and The Golden Compass, respectively. A fourth installment, On Stranger Tides, the first in the series to neither be directed by Verbinski nor star Bloom and Knightley, was released in cinemas on May 20, 2011.
With a production budget of $300 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End was the most expensive film ever made at the time of its release, even after adjusting for inflation.
