The article focuses on the performance of the motion picture industry in the U.S. in summer 2006. Movies with broad-based appeal this year reversed the declining trend of summer 2005. Walt Disney Pictures' sequel "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" became the year's-to-date biggest-grossing movie. The next three movies grossed more than $200 million are Pixar Animation Studios' "Cars, 20th Century Fox's "X-Men: The Last Stand," and Sony Pictures' "The Da Vinci Code."
