Pirates' pulls in $43 million but misses opening-day record
Box Office Mojo estimates that the weekend box office for Pirates - At World's End is $112,547,000.
Interesting. Amazingly, its a huge hit but still a bit of a disappointment for the Disney execs
Well, considering that after last year's "big success" of Dead Man's Chest that Disney fired 25% of the Studio staff - you have to bet a lot of suits are wondering what this lastest "huge" numbers are going to wreck on the lot.
If you spend half a billion dollars on a single movie you had better be sure it's one of the greatest movies of all times (Hollywood Lesson #5). Disney didn't make a good movie with At World's End and now things are going to sort themselves out.
I'm more intrigued by the fact that 3 studios have now put out 3 high budget stinkers. I wonder if AWE didn't suffer from Spidey's being junk? I don't mean that it's getting a bad rap. It's getting the rap it deserves. I just mean that it might have opened better had Spidey not pissed everyone off.
Looks to be an interesting summer for hollywood. In the chinese proverb way. At the same time, Pirates will have a few more weeks to stay afloat before any competition comes along. So, it may not do as poorly as Spidey.
We shall see.
'Pirates' captures Memorial Day record with $142.1 million debut

Total Box Office - Impressive!
Our 11 a.m. showing was about 2/3rds full. Pretty impressive considering this is a small market where this film has been shown at least 21 times/day at two separate theaters (Many have been sellouts).
As for the film...DD9 and I loved it! It was the fastest 3 hrs I've ever spent watching a movie. Geoffrey Rush was great as Barbossa. Of course watching Elizabeth was easy on the eyes. I was impressed by how Elizabeth's character became such a driving force in the movie.
Bottom line...Disney is going to make buckets of money on this film. Because of this weekend's competition I wouldn't be surprised to see big numbers for the next few weekends. Not opening weekend numbers, but still impressive.
Did you like the other Spider Man movies? Cause I liked the Third.
I honestly haven't seen any of them, but I've met nobody (till you) that thought the movie was anything other then worthless. The user Tomatometer is horrid. Shrek 3 is bad too. In fact, Pirates currently has the best user rating of the 3.
Yep...X-Men 3 ..bad
Spiderman 3 ...Horrible
Shrek 3....looks and sounds so bad that I'll wait for HBO.
POTC ....bad movie.
