Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest should join Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King today as the only movies ever released to top $1 billion in worldwide grosses, according to Variety.
The "Pirates" sequel has been out of the domestic top 10 for the past two weekends, but still managed to bring in $4.9 million during the Labor Day weekend to lift the North American box-office gross past $414 million -- the sixth-highest on the all-time list.
It is mainly recent foreign biz that's pushed "Dead Man's Chest" over the 10-figure mark. The film has remained dominant internationally with a nine-weekend winning streak and, as of Tuesday, had totaled around $583 million outside of the U.S.
There's no chance for "Dead Man's Chest" to catch Titanic, which stands at $1.83 billion, and it would need another $130 million to overtake "The Return of the King" at $1.13 billion.
