Pirates 3 to open on record 4,362 screens

I hope everyone who can is out enjoying the third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series tonight. It’s opening on 4,362 screens, a record for any release. That huge number is important because if Pirates is to break box office records this weekend, they have to have a ton of screens to make up for the long playing time. This is causing an interesting effect where films that have been out for a few weeks are being forced to the side to make way for Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew. Variety is even speculating if the overseas opening can help Disney surpass Spidey 3 for the largest world wide opening weekend.

So if you saw the movie tonight, please share your opinion of it in the comments. But do keep it spoiler free. Thank you.
