I may have been a little over-zealous in my previous prediction. Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End, while setting a number of box office records in its opening weekend, does not appear to be on a path for setting the highest worldwide gross ever. It did, however, take in $404 Million in worldwide gross in its first 4 days. Considering that the film only cost an estimated $300 million, it’s already earned a profit for Disney. Then add in the merchandise, DVD, and television rights and you have the makings of another clear profit center for The Walt Disney Company. The only question is, what will they follow up with next year?
