“Pirates of the Carribean” Steals Top Spot from “Thor”
Ahoy to the top, pirates!
It’s a smooth sailing weekend for Jack Sparrow and friends, as the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film sailed away to the top of the box office.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” pulled in $35 million in the U.S. and Canada. Worldwide, the film earned $256.3 million, making it the biggest international opening ever.
However, the Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz’s collaboration debut was notably lower than that of the second ($135.6 million) and third ($114.7 million) films.
Came in second place, is Kristen Wiig’s R-rated comedy “Bridesmaids,” grossing $21 million in its second week of release.
Meanwhile, after being a champion two weekends in a row, “Thor” came into its third weekend in third place at the box office, earning $15.5 million.
“Fast Five” parked at No. 4, attracting $10.6 million and bringing its total to $186.2 million. In fifth place, “Rio” took in $4.65 million (for a total of $131.6 million).
“Priest 3D” followed close behind in sixth place with $4.6 million. And “Jumping the Broom” came in seventh, garnering $3.7 million.
Rounding out the top 10: Something Borrowed (No. 8, $3.4 million), Water for Elephants (No. 9, $2.1 million) and Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family (No. 10, $990,000).
Congrats, captain Jack and friends!
