Budget Note

There is considerable debate about the actual budget of Dead Man's Chest. Original studio sources put the budget at $150 million during production, but that cost is believed to be based on amortizing costs over several projects, and the final shoot likely ran over its original budget. The $225 million figure has never, to our knowledge, been confirmed by Disney, but has been widely reported. We will continue to quote it, unless Disney provides an "official" number.
