Second week of Pirate Plundering...
Well it's been ten days and POTC: At World's End has managed to pull in close to half a billion dollars. That's the good news... The bad news is Jack Sparrow probably won't catch up to Spidey. Still it's a pretty impressive booty. Uhm... a pretty impressive haul I guess you could say.
The Johnny Depp movie has pulled in an estimated $217,545,728 domestically and $406,500,000 internationally for a projected total of $624,045,728. Man, those are some rich Pirates! This shows the growing importance of foriegn box office receipts. Although the total gross was down from last week, the overseas power of Pirates increased to 65.1 percent of the take. This dependence on the international market will only grow bigger... for Disney and the other studios as well.
The test now will be how it holds up to the coming "Transformers" movie. Other than that Michael Bay film there is no major obsticle until Harry Potter graces us with his wand. I'm not counting Fantastic Four 2, since I hated part one. I believe "At World's End" will likely wind up as the number two film of the year unless those damn robots have strong legs. Do robots have strong legs? Oh well, time will tell...
