Information about Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a 2007 (12 years ago) adventure film, the third movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The plot follows Elizabeth Swann, Will Turner and the crew of the Black Pearl rescuing Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp (9 walls)), from Davy Jones's Locker, and then preparing to fight the East India Trading Company, led by Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) and Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), who plan to extinguish piracy. Gore Verbinski directed the film, as he did with the previous two. It was shot in two shoots during 2005 (14 years ago) and 2006 (13 years ago), the former simultaneously with the preceding film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (10 walls).

The movie was released in English-speaking countries on May 24, 2007 (12 years ago) after Disney decided to move the release date to a day earlier than originally planned. Critical reviews were mixed, but At World's End was a box office hit, becoming the most successful movie of 2007 (12 years ago), grossing approximately $960 million worldwide, and making it the second most successful in the series, behind Dead Man's Chest. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Makeup and the Academy Award for Visual Effects. At $316.6 million dollars, At World's End tops the list of most expensive films.

Trailer



Plot

Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) executes anyone suspected of or associated with piracy. Beckett, who now possesses Davy Jones's (Bill Nighy) heart, orders Jones to destroy all pirate ships. Condemned prisoners sing a song to compel the nine pirate lords composing the (fourth) Brethren Court to convene at Shipwreck Cove. However, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp (9 walls)), pirate lord of the Caribbean, never appointed his successor, and therefore must attend. Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) leads Will (Orlando Bloom (7 walls)), Elizabeth (Keira Knightley (93 walls)), Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris), and the Black Pearl crewmen to rescue Jack. Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat), pirate lord of the South China Sea, possesses a map to the entrance to Davy Jones's Locker, where Jack is imprisoned. Turner goes to attempt to steal the charts from Feng but is captured and tied up by his henchman, Tai Huang. The British Royal Navy, led by Mercer, attack Feng's bathhouse. During the battle, Will bargains with Feng for the Pearl in exchange for Sparrow, so Will can rescue his father from The Flying Dutchman.

The crew journeys into the Locker and successfully retrieves Sparrow. As The Black Pearl seeks an escape route, dead souls are seen floating by underwater. Tia Dalma reveals that Davy Jones was appointed by Calypso, Goddess of the Sea and his lover, to ferry the dead to the next world. In return, Jones was allowed to step upon land for one day every ten years to be with his love; but when she failed to meet him, the scorned captain abandoned his duty and transformed into a monster. Governor Swann, now dead, reveals that whoever stabs Jones's heart becomes the Dutchman's immortal captain.

After returning to the living world, The Black Pearl is ambushed by Sao Feng, who reveals his agreement with Will. However, he betrays Will, having made another deal with Beckett to hand over the crew and keep The Black Pearl. The Endeavor arrives, and takes Sparrow aboard, although he refuses to divulge to Beckett where the Brethren Court will convene: instead, Jack makes a deal to lead Beckett to the Court and lure them out for Beckett to destroy, in exchange for Beckett protecting him from Jones. When Feng is double-crossed by Beckett, he bargains with Barbossa to release the Pearl in exchange for Elizabeth, who he believes is Calypso trapped in human form. Feng attacks the Endeavor, allowing Jack to escape. Aboard his warship, Feng tells Elizabeth that the first Brethren Court trapped Calypso in human form so men could rule the seas. Davy Jones attacks Feng's ship. The mortally wounded Feng appoints Elizabeth as the new captain and the Pirate Lord of the South China Sea. She and the crew are then imprisoned in The Flying Dutchman's brig. Also aboard is Admiral James Norrington (Jack Davenport), who frees Elizabeth and her crew. They escape to their ship, although Norrington is killed by a crazed Bootstrap Bill Turner (Stellan Skarsgård).

Will leaves a trail of corpses for Beckett's ship to follow. Jack catches Will and tosses him overboard after giving him his magical compass so Beckett can find Shipwreck Cove. Will is rescued by Beckett's ship, and Davy Jones reveals that he masterminded Calypso's imprisonment by the first Brethren Court. At Shipwreck Island, the pirate lords introduce themselves and present the nine pieces of eight, but disagree over freeing Calypso. Barbossa calls upon Captain Teague to confirm that only a Pirate King can declare war. Elizabeth is elected Pirate King after Sparrow's vote for her breaks a stalemate. She orders the pirates to go to war. During a parley with Beckett and Jones, Elizabeth and Barbossa swap Sparrow for Will.

Barbossa tricks the pirate lords into yielding their "pieces of eight", which he needs to free Calypso, who is bound in human form as Tia Dalma. As she is released, Will discloses that it was Davy Jones who betrayed her to the Brethren Court. Her fury unleashes a violent maelstrom. Sparrow escapes The Flying Dutchman's brig and steals the Dead Man's Chest. Davy Jones kills Mercer and obtains the key to the chest, which Jack then steals from Jones during a duel. The Black Pearl and The Flying Dutchman face off near the center of the maelstrom. Will proposes to Elizabeth, and Captain Barbossa marries them in the midst of battle. Will boards the Dutchman to retrieve the chest, but is mortally wounded by Davy Jones. Sparrow places his sword in Will's hand and helps him stab Jones's heart, killing him. Jack and Elizabeth escape The Flying Dutchman as the crew carve out Will's heart and place it into the Dead Man's Chest; the ship disappears into the whirlpool. Beckett, never intending to honor his agreement with Jack, moves to attack The Black Pearl. The Flying Dutchman resurfaces with Will as the captain and the crew now human. The Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl destroy The Endeavor and kill Beckett. The surviving armada retreats.

Will is bound to sail the sea as The Flying Dutchman's captain. Will and Elizabeth have one day together where they consummate their marriage. He departs at sunset, but first gives Elizabeth the Dead Man's Chest. Barbossa commandeers the Pearl, stranding Jack and Gibbs in Tortuga. Having anticipated Barbossa's deception, Sparrow removed the map's middle that shows the path to the Fountain of Youth. Jack departs the trilogy just as he entered, alone in a dinghy on the open sea.

Ten years later, Elizabeth and her son stand atop a seacliff; The Flying Dutchman appears on the horizon with Will Turner aboard.

Cast

  • Johnny Depp (9 walls) as Captain Jack Sparrow: Pirate Lord of the Caribbean Sea. After being tricked by Elizabeth Swann to save the crew, Sparrow and the Black Pearl were dragged to Davy Jones' Locker by the Kraken. Sparrow is trapped there until his former crew mounts a rescue party, whereupon he returns to the living world to battle his nemesis, Davy Jones. While in the Locker, he suffers hallucinations, seeing multiple versions of himself, each representing a different facet of his personality.
  • Orlando Bloom (7 walls) as William "Will" Turner Jr.: A blacksmith turned pirate, and the son of the pirate "Bootstrap Bill" Turner, a crewman on the Flying Dutchman, commanded by Davy Jones. Will becomes the "Flying Dutchman" captain after killing Davy Jones. Will hopes to free his father and marry Elizabeth Swann.
  • Keira Knightley (93 walls) as Elizabeth Swann: Governor Swann’s daughter and engaged to Will. She tricked Jack Sparrow into being swallowed by the Kraken to save herself and the Black Pearl crew. Jack is at first unable to forgive her for sending him to his doom and uses the event against her, but eventually relents.
  • Chow Yun-Fat as Captain Sao Feng: Pirate Lord of the South China Sea, he captains the Chinese ship The Empress. He has a bad history with Sparrow and is reluctant to aid in his rescue from Davy Jones' Locker. "Sao Feng" (啸风) means "Howling Wind" in Chinese. Chow was confirmed to be playing Feng in Jul. 2005 (14 years ago) while production of the second movie was on hiatus. Chow relished playing the role, even helping out crew members with props.
  • Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa: Pirate Lord of the Caspian Sea, he was the first mate of the Black Pearl under Jack's command before leading a mutiny. Although he was killed by Sparrow a year before, he was brought back by Tia Dalma. Barbossa returns to lead Elizabeth, Will and the others to the World's End in a bid to free Jack and the Pearl from Davy Jones' Locker. Rush said that in the film, Barbossa becomes more of a cunning politician. Depp said he was pleased he got more screentime with Rush than in the first film: "We're like a couple of old ladies fighting over their knitting needles".
  • Bill Nighy provides motion capture and voice acting for Davy Jones: Ghostly ruler of the ocean realm, captain of The Flying Dutchman, and to whom Jack owed a blood debt Jones is one of the main villains of the movie (the other being Cutler Beckett). James Norrington captured his heart, and as a result, he is now trapped into service to Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company, who forces him to kill the Kraken. During a brief reunion, Tia Dalma shortly restores his former human form.
  • Tom Hollander as Lord Cutler Beckett: Chairman of the East India Trading Company and one of the main villains of the movie (the other being Davy Jones). Beckett possesses Davy Jones' heart, thus controlling the world's oceans and seven seas as the new ruler.
  • Naomie Harris as Tia Dalma/Calypso: An obeah witch who travels with the Black Pearl crew to rescue Jack, she also raised Hector Barbossa from the dead at the conclusion of Dead Man's Chest and is the woman Davy Jones loved. She is actually the sea goddess, Calypso, who was bound in human form by the first Brethren Court, because they believed the power of the seas should belong to man and not to her. She has the ability to raise the dead, implement curses, voodoo and witchcraft, and is in touch with the elements while in human form. When released from her human form, she transforms into numerous crabs to return to the sea and unleashes a violent maelstrom.
  • Stellan Skarsgård as William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner Sr.: Will's father, he is cursed to serve an eternity aboard The Flying Dutchman. As he slowly loses his humanity to the sea, he becomes mentally confused, barely recognizing his own son.
  • Kevin McNally as Joshamee Gibbs: Jack's loyal and superstitious first mate.
  • Jack Davenport as James Norrington: Promoted to the rank of admiral, he has an alliance with Lord Beckett and the East India Trading Company after stealing the heart of Davy Jones and bargaining it to Cutler Beckett in exchange for his career. He is also Elizabeth's former fiancé and still loves her. Bootstrap Bill kills him after he allows Elizabeth and her crew to escape the Dutchman.
  • Lee Arenberg as Pintel: A slightly mischievous, stolid member of Jack's crew.
  • Mackenzie Crook as Ragetti: A Black Pearl crewman and Pintel's eccentric companion who wears a wooden eye.
  • Jonathan Pryce as Weatherby Swann: Governor of Port Royal, Jamaica. He is Elizabeth's father and is trapped in Beckett's service. Beckett has him murdered due to his learning of the heart now belonging to the East India Trading Company.
  • Keith Richards as Captain Teague: A pirate and the Keeper of the Pirata Codex for the Brethren Court. He is Jack Sparrow's father, and keeps Jack's dead mother's shrunken head with him. Richards, who partially inspired Johnny Depp's portrayal of Sparrow, was meant to appear in Dead Man's Chest, but there was no room for him in the story, and he almost missed filming a scene in At World's End following injuries sustained by falling out of a palm tree. In Jun. 2006 (13 years ago), Verbinski finally managed to make room in Richards' schedule to shoot that September.

Production

Following Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl's success in 2003 (16 years ago), the cast and crew signed on for two sequels to be shot back-to-back. For the third film, director Gore Verbinski wanted to return the tone to that of a character piece after using the second movie to keep the plot moving. Inspired by the real-life confederation of pirates, Elliott and Rossio looked at historical figures and created fictional characters from them to expand the scope beyond the main cast. Finally embellishing their mythology, Calypso was introduced, going full circle to Barbossa's mention of "heathen gods" that created the curse in the first film.

Parts of the third movie were shot during location filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (10 walls), a long shoot which finished on Mar. 1, 2006 (13 years ago). During Aug. 2005 (14 years ago), the Singapore sequence was shot. The set was built on Stage 12 of the Universal backlot, and comprised 40 structures within an 80 by 130-foot (24 by 40-m) tank that was 3½ feet (1 m) deep. As 18th century Singapore is not a well-documented era, the filmmakers chose to use an Expressionist style based on Chinese and Malaysian cities of the same period. The design of the city was also intended by Verbinski to parody spa culture, with fungi growing throughout the set. Continuing this natural feel, the floorboards of Sao Feng's bathhouse had to be cut by hand, and real humidity was created by the combination of gallons of water and the lighting equipment on the set.

Filming resumed in Aug. 2006 (13 years ago) at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and continued until early 2007 (12 years ago) for 70 days off the California coast, as all the shooting required in the Caribbean had been conducted in 2005 (14 years ago). Davy Jones' Locker was shot at Utah, and it was shot in a monochromatic way to represent its different feeling from the usual colorful environment of a pirate. The climactic battle was shot in a former air hanger at Palmdale, California, where the cast had to wear wetsuits underneath their costumes on angle-tipped ships. The water-drenched set was kept in freezing temperatures, to make sure bacteria did not come inside and infect the crew. A second unit shot at Niagara Falls. Industrial Light & Magic did 750 effects shots, while Digital Domain also took on 300. They spent just five months finishing the special effects. The movie posed numerous challenges in creating water-based effects.

Filming finished on Jan. 10, 2007 (12 years ago) in Molokai, and the first assembly cut was three hours. Twenty minutes were removed, not including end credits, though producer Jerry Bruckheimer maintained that the long running time was needed to make the final battle work in terms of build-up. Hans Zimmer composed the score as he did for the previous film, composing eight new motifs including a new love theme for the At World's End soundtrack. He scored scenes as the editors began work, so as to influence their choice of cutting to the music. Gore Verbinski helped on the score. He played the guitar in the parley scene between Barbossa, Sparrow, Elizabeth and Will, Davy Jones, and Cutler Beckett. He also co-wrote the song "Hoist the Colours" with Zimmer.

Reception

As with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (10 walls), At World's End received mixed reviews. The most common criticism of the movie from reviewers was that the plot was too convoluted for them to follow. In review aggregate websites, At World's End has a "rotten" rating of 45% on Rotten Tomatoes and 50% at Metacritic. Favorable reviewer Alex Billington noted, "This is just how the movie industry works nowadays; critics give bad opinions, the public usually has a differing opinion, and all is well in the world of Hollywood since the studios made their millions anyway." The movie was voted "Best Movie" and "Best Threequel" at the People's Choice Awards. Depp and Knightley also won awards for their performances.

Drew McWeeny was an exception, praising its complexity as giving it repeat-viewing value, and its conclusion as "perhaps the most canny move it makes." Todd Gilchrist found the story too similar to other cinematic trilogies such as Star Wars but praised the production values. Brian Lowry felt that "unlike last year's bloated sequel, it at least possesses some semblance of a destination, making it slightly more coherent - if no less numbing during the protracted finale." Total movie praised the performances but complained that the twists and exposition made it hard to care for the characters. Edward Douglas liked the movie but had issues with its pacing, while Blake Wright criticized the Davy Jones' Locker and Calypso segments. James Berardinelli found it the weakest of the trilogy as "the last hour offers adventure as rousing as anything provided in either of the previous installments... which doesn't account for the other 108 minutes of this gorged, self-indulgent, and uneven production." Peter Travers praised Richards and Rush but felt "there can indeed be too much of a good thing," regarding Depp's character. Travers later declared the movie to be one of the worst movies of the year.

Some confusion among fans was regarding the final scene, since there has been a major contradiction in the storyline when Will returns to Elizabeth ten years later: in the DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) commentary, the screenwriters state that because Elizabeth remained faithful to Will for the interim 10 years, and he fulfilled his duty to ferry souls to the next world, he is freed from the Flying Dutchman, but the "Pirates Secrets Revealed" leaflet insert in the DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) release and dialogue in the movie make it specifically clear that Will (or any captain of the Flying Dutchman for that matter) is bound forever to his duties and may only step on land once every ten years.

The movie had two nominations for the 80th Academy Awards in the Visual Effects and Makeup categories. It lost to The Golden Compass (10 walls) and La Vie en Rose, respectively.
