Pirates Of The Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides Rules Box Office

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides hoisted sail to the top spot at the box office this weekend earning $90 million in domestic sales. Add that to an additional $256.3 million overseas and you get $346.4 million worldwide. That’s the fourth largest worldwide opening weekend flick of all time. Not too shabby and well on the way to recovering costs for the $250 million movie.

While those numbers look impressive the movie was beat out by opening numbers for the last two Pirates movies which totaled $135.6 million for Dead Man’s Chest and $114.7 million for At World’s End. Disney was projecting closer to $100 million in the U.S. for Pirates 4.

Mixed reviews from critics and a pre-memorial day release probably accounts for the weaker numbers domestically. Pirates should retain the top spot next week as it does have good word of mouth among fans.

More good news for Disney is that Thor continues to rake in the money having reached over $383 million worldwide. Not too bad for a film that cost $150 million.
