‘Pirates’ Top The Weekend Box Office
As expected, the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie owned the box office this past weekend and even set an over seas record.
Once again my movie pick has dominated the box office and it's no big surprise that the latest chapter of the Pirates franchise has grossed a ton of money. With the money counted, it made around $90 million here in the states, but set an over seas record with all the money it made.
Previously Harry Potter: And The Half Blood Prince had held the record for an over seas opening with $236 million. Pirates out did it with it's take of $256 million, giving them a world wide total of about $346 million. Pretty impressive.
The comedy Bridesmaids remains in the number 2 spot for the second week in a row taking in $21 million while Thor drops into third place making another $15 million to make it's total earnings around $146 million here in the states.
