Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hooked the #1 spot at the box office this weekend. The fifth swashbuckling installment of the popular Disney franchise brought in $62-Million from 4,276 domestic theatrical locations which, when combined with the $208.4-Million brought in from overseas, sees the film's worldwide total currently sitting at $270-Million.
The movie is the lowest opening for a Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, with the exception of the 2003 original. That entry earned just over $46-Million in its opening weekend.
The previous four Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have grossed $1.28-Billion domestically and $2.45-Billion internationally. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, released back in 2007, set a Memorial Day weekend record when it launched with $139-Million over the four days.
Within the next few days, the franchise will have made $4-Billion worldwide.
The film focuses on Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow battling deadly ghost sailors, led by the Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. Franchise vets Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush return alongside newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites.
