Working in a wide range of genres and budgets with many of today's top talents, GORE VERBINSKI (Director) is considered one of the most innovative directors of his generation. With seven feature films to his credit thus far, Verbinski's box-office success totals over $2 billion worldwide. The 2006 release of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest” not only grossed $1 billion around the world, but broke many box-office records, including the first film to break the heralded $100 million barrier in 48 hours. The opening film of this trilogy, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” was released in 2003 and went on to become one of the top-grossing films of that year, earning a number of Oscar® nominations, including a Best Actor nomination for Johnny Depp.

In between the first and second "Pirates” pictures, Verbinski directed the acclaimed comedy-drama "The Weather Man,” staring Nicolas Cage and Michael Caine. The powerful opus about the elusive contemporary American Dream, showcased Verbinski's versatility. In 2002, Verbinski wowed audiences with the hit thriller "The Ring,” which grossed over $250 million worldwide and made Naomi Watts a household name.

Prior to his incredible film success, Verbinski was an award-winning commercial and music video director. His inventive work in advertising for companies including Nike, Coca-Cola, and Budweiser earned him a number of Clio awards. In 1993, he created the memorable Budweiser advertising campaign showcasing croaking frogs. Along with commercials, Verbinski also has seen success in the music-video world directing videos for bands such as Bad Religion and Crystal Method. In 1997, his work caught the eye of Steven Spielberg who offered him his first feature film, the visually stunning family comedy "Mousehunt.”

Verbinski is a graduate from the prestigious School of Theatre, Film and Television at UCLA and resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
