Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl: Collector's Edition (2003)


From producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pearl Harbor) comes PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, the thrilling, high-seas adventure with a mysterious twist. The roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) idyllic pirate life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), steals his ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port Royal, kidnapping the governor's beautiful daughter Elizabeth (Keira Knightley). In a gallant attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl, Elizabeth's childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) joins forces with Jack. What Will doesn't know is that a cursed treasure has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live forever as the undead. Rich in suspense-filled adventure, sword-clashing action, mystery, humor, unforgettable characters, and never-before-seen special effects, PIRATES is a must-have epic on the grandest scale ever.

Easter Eggs...

On Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s release of the cool Special Edition of Pirates Of The Caribbean the studio has hidden some additional treasures for you.

Insert the second disc of the set and from the Main Menu select the entry Fly On The Set. In the next screen, highlight the Play All entry and then press the right arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight one of the teeth on the monkey and will allow you to see a time-lapse clip of the construction of the pirate cave on the soundstage from beginning to end.

Now go back to the Main Menu and select Below Deck. Highlight Set Sail and then press the left arrow key twice. This will highlight the skull on the medallion and give you access to an animatic of the climactic ship battle scene in the movie.

Back on the Beyond Deck menu, select Scene Index and there go to the second page of chapter stops. Highlight the entry Pirate Ships and then press the left arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight the ring on the skeleton’s hand and give you the chance to see the Japanese trailer for the movie.

Now it is time to go back to the disc’s Main Menu and select the Moonlight Serenade Scene Progression. Highlight the Main Menu entry and then press the down arrow key on your remote control twice. This will highlight one of the incisors on the skeleton. This will allow you will see a very cool interview clip with Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards in which he discusses how Johnny Depp based elements of his character of Jack Sparrow on him – and indeed, once you make the connection, it is uncanny.
