Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Well-versed in crafting stylish, glossy images and particularly adept at creating suspense, film director Gore Verbinski made short films and worked on award-winning advertising campaigns - winning four Clio awards, one Cannes advertising Silver Lion, and created the Budweiser Frogs - before moving into film. While making a rather inauspicious debut with the family comedy "Mouse Hunt" (1997), Verbinski propelled himself into the upper echelon of film directors with "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003), a wild and fun return to a genre Hollywood had long ago abandoned. Thanks to the swashbuckling derring-do and comically over-the-top turn from Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, "Pirates" went on to earn over $650 million in worldwide box office, making it one of the highest-grossing films of all time and giving Verbinski the type of success most directors envy.
