POTC: DMC also opened in 17 more foreign countries, and took first place at the box office in each and every one.
Now showing in 24 overseas markets, the film took in $58 million to bring its overseas gross to $125 million. It set new box office records for opening weekend results in Russia, Ukraine, Finland, Singapore and Malaysia.Hooray! I have seen the movie twice, but I do plan to see it again, quite soon. I am glad to see people are still going in droves. It is perfect entertainment for a hot summer day and you are guaranteed to laugh. If you haven't seen the first one, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl , I recommend doing so. It will let you in on the numerous inside jokes in DMC and explain the characters and "history" to you. Plus, it is a simply fabulous movie.
