    In its seventh consecutive weekend as the top-grossing film internationally, the Walt Disney Co.'s "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" continues to notch significant records, becoming Disney's biggest release of all time, the 12th highest-grossing title ever released abroad and the industry's sixth-ranked worldwide hit of all time.

    With a weekend estimate of $25.5 million from 6,222 screens in 51 territories, "Dead Man's Chest" pushed its international gross total to $522.7 million. Its worldwide cume stands at $923.8 million, pushing it above the $866.9 million worldwide gross of Disney's previous record holder, 2003's "Finding Nemo." "Dead Man's Chest's" boxoffice momentum is such that the title bounced from being the industry's No. 12 all-time hit globally last weekend to No. 6.

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - In its seventh weekend as the No. 1 film at the foreign box office, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" notched more records, and now ranks as the sixth-biggest worldwide release of all time.

    The pirate tale is also Walt Disney's biggest release ever, and the industry's 12th highest-grossing film internationally.

    With a weekend estimate of $25.5 million from 51 territories, "Dead Man's Chest" pushed its international gross to $522.7 million. Its worldwide total stands at $923.8 million, pushing it above the $866.9 million worldwide gross of Disney's previous record holder, 2003's "Finding Nemo."

    On the global chart, "Dead Man's Chest" is poised this week to climb two ranks to No. 4, overtaking 1999's "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace" ($924.3 million worldwide) and 2002's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" ($926.3 million). (The film opens Friday in Greece and September 13 in Italy.)

    Local totals include: Britain, $89 million; Japan, $69.3 million; Germany -- No. 1 for a fourth weekend -- $52.4 million; France, $37.4 million; and Spain, $24.6 million after two weekends.

    The "over 1 Billion" club for movies is very exclusive. Only 2 movies have ever done it before. Dead Man's Chest will be the 3rd very soon. Go Disney!
