In its maiden voyage to seven territories, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest hijacked the foreign box office over the weekend with a lusty $46.6 million, nearly quadrupling what its predecessor opened to in those same markets. Not even the final matches of the box-office-draining World Cup could stop it.Let's hope it keeps going.
In the United Kingdom, Pirates nabbed the eighth-highest opening ever and the biggest of the year, raking in $25.3 million from 514 locations. Down Under, it tallied $8.4 million, also the eighth best if all time and eclipsing the first movie by 111 percent.
Superman Returns, the much lauded latest Superman movie, has only brought in $146,926,451 domestically to date, despite opening a week and a half earlier, and $35,800,000 internationally, for a total of $182,726,451.
USA Today asks Crazy for Johnny, or Captain Jack? I say both. I LOVE the character of Captain Jack Sparrow. POTC wouldn't be POTC without him. I wasn't a huge Johnny Depp fan before POTC came out, but now I am. He's absolutely brilliant---and unafraid to play quite unusual roles. Other than Captain Jack Sparrow in the POTC films, I don't think he has ever played two of his characters in the same way. He always amazes anew. And I am always amazed at his performances. But, then, I also just LOVE Captain Jack Sparrow.
