3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Year released: 2006
Overall U.S. box office gross: $423.3 millionThere's Johnny Depp in the Captain Jack Sparrow costume now worn by bachelorette party strippers across the land. There's Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley and Bill Nighy reminding everyone what real English accents sound like. Jungle chases, treasure, Davy Jones, a CGI kraken and a whole lot of swashbuckling escapism and drunken slapstick. It was the high-water mark for the franchise and, to this day, the strongest argument for an old Disney theme park attraction's relevance. Sorry Mission To Mars, Haunted Mansion and The Country Bears, but you should have sprung for Depp and Gore Verbinski.
