Celebrating 20 Years

The first film in the franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. With a budget of $140 million, 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl grossed $654.2 million globally, spawning four additional movies.

Knightley confesses she doesn’t remember much about the first film, as it came at such a critical point in her career.

“It sort of launched me out of a rocket, really, as far as my career went,” Knightley says. “That year was ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.”

“So, I’m being asked about all three. Unfortunately, I was 16 and 17. So I don’t really remember very much of it. But yes, it certainly was a very big year for me. ” she adds.
