Pirates Continues To Dominate Worldwide Box Office, Passes $400 Million Mark!!!

pirates 4 hits 400 million worldwide

Guess the 3D factor didn't hurt the movie too much.

Over the weekend, Johnny Depp and Disney once again delivered with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which achieved the biggest international opening of all time!

Looks like thar be more records to broken, because yesterday the movie officially passed the $400 million mark at the worldwide box office! AND in less than a week in release!!!

The Hangover II may slow it down a little bit this weekend, although families aren't TOO likely to take their kids to see the hard R-rated sequel, so Pirates' momentum might not slow down much at all…in fact it COULD pick up steam! It's Memorial Day weekend after all!

Do U think Pirates will continue to dominate at the worldwide box office? Any chance it will beat Hangover II this weekend???

Are 3D Pirates Less Profitable Than 2D Ones???

pirates of the caribbean hurt by 3d

According to analysts, the answer is aye yes!

While Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides may have had the biggest international opening of all time, BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield seems to think that the film would have fared even better in the U.S. if it had been released on more 2D screens.

Here's what Greenfield had to say about it:

"U.S. consumers are increasingly rejecting 3D movies."

Richard says that audiences are concerned with higher ticket prices for 3D movies, and he also believes that young children don't want to wear 3D glasses.

We certainly can't argue the higher prices. It costs a small fortune for large families to go see a 3D movie…especially if they plan on snacking!

…Then again, we suppose they could always smuggle in Skittles in their pockets or purses. Ha!

Do U think Richard Greenfield is right? Did the 3D factor affect your decision to go see Pirates or not?

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Has Biggest International Opening OF ALL TIME!!

pirates-of-caribbean-on-stranger-tides-biggest-international-opening-ever.jpg

Holy shiz!!!

To anyone who has said that Pirates of the Caribbean is a tired franchise, think again!

The fourth movie On Stranger Tides smashed box office records this weekend, becoming the biggest international opening of all time. YES, really!

Grossing a massive $256.3 million, the movie grossed nearly three times as much money as North America's $90.1 million.

Sure, it's not hundreds of millions, but not too shabby for one continent.

The movie knocked Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince off its throne, which was the original international blockbuster with $236 million.

Well done, Johnny and Co.! We have a feeling the Pirates franchise won't be going away any time soon…

Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 Opens Big Around The World!

pirates-of-caribbean-4-huge-globally.jpg

Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides hasn't even opened up in the U.S. yet and it's already broken box office records.

The film debuted in 70 countries on Wednesday and has already grossed $18.5 million - $5 million more than Pirates 3.

In Russia, it made $5 million on its opening day, giving Russia it's biggest movie opening to date. This could be due to the fact that Johnny Depp attended the Moscow premiere, a first for the franchise. Star Geoffrey Rush attended the Australia premiere, while Penelope Cruz took a trip back home to attend the Spanish premiere in Madrid.

It made $3.2 million in the UK and also had huge openings in Italy and Sweden.

Even though critics haven't been too kind to the Pirates franchise, we have a feeling it's going to make a huge splash when it opens on Friday. People still love the original concept and who can resist Johnny as Jack Sparrow? Let's face it: The movie is a worldwide phenomenon. (Plus, there are mermaids in the movie!!)
