May 20, 2011 the latest of the POTC series came out.

Penelope Cruz was pregnant throughout production but it wasn’t noticeable until September  2010. As Penelope’s baby bump grew it caused difficulties in wardrobe, so the procedures enlisted the help of younger sister Monica Cruz. They filmed Penelope in the up close shots and Monica in the distant scenes.

Johnny Depp bought new water proof jackets for 500 crew members on set to protect them from the weather. He spent a total of $64,200 of his own money.

This was the only POTC movie not to have an Oscar nomination.

As Jack enters the Santiago, the camera flashes to a skeletal Ponce de Leon laying on a bed surrounded by treasure. This refers to the POTC ride in Disneyland where guests see a skeletal pirate captain laying in bed surrounded by treasure.

This installment has the shortest run-time of the “pirates” series which is 136 minutes.
