Pirates of the Caribbean sequel steals North American box office title

Pirates of the Caribbean sequel steals North American box office title

It's also of note the opening of Dead Men Tell No Tales pushed Disney's domestic cume for 2017 over $1 billion on Friday.

The film earned 208.4 million US dollars internationally this weekend and when combined with the 62.2 million USA dollars in North America, the global weekend brought in an impressive 270.6 million USA dollars.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter is estimating that the worldwide take of "Pirates" (which cost $200 million to make) could exceed $300 million in its opening weekend. It's good enough for a first-place finish, but it isn't the runaway success Disney was likely hoping for.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales pulled in $208.4 million from its global debut, for a worldwide total of $285.4 million, a figure which was at the high end of many box office analysts worldwide projections, claiming the movie would earn between $230 and $285 million worldwide in its opening weekend.

Doctors warn of health risks in withdrawal from Paris climate accord
Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell said they favored a predictable structure like the Paris agreement for regulating emissions. The rally comes a week after the Trump administration announced the US would withdraw from the accord.


Last time out in 2011, On Stranger Tides pulled in US$90 million in its opening weekend. That leaves "Baywatch", which opened to just $23M over the four-day weekend, in a depressing third overall.

Meanwhile, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Effron are leading Baywatch to an $22.5 which is below expectations for the $60 million-budgeted action-comedy.

That is far below early estimates.

"To our knowledge, we were not hacked", Iger told Yahoo Finance."We had a threat of a hack of a movie being stolen". Aided by a Bank Holiday in the UK, Pirates will nearly certainly cross $300 million by the end of Monday.

Fox's "Alien: Covenant" should end up in fourth during its second weekend in theaters. With $783 million globally, Disney and Marvel's "Guardians 2" has surpassed the first "Guardians" movie's total earnings.

Hollywood executives have been quick to point the finger at review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes for the worse-than-expected weekend debuts of new-look films like Baywatch. Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 - which was released on May 5th - made more than the film last weekend.

Now, you can see that The Boss Baby and Beauty and the Beast are still lingering in the Top 10. His other film still in theaters - "The Fate of the Furious" - just became only the sixth movie in history to earn more than $1 billion overseas.
