'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Top Memorial Day Weekend Box Office as 'Baywatch' Struggles
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales led the way this Memorial Day weekend while Paramount's Baywatch struggled to match expectations. Meanwhile, Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues to deliver while the studio's Beauty and the Beast became only the eighth film to cross $500 million domestically. Overall, the weekend was down ~15% compared to Memorial Day weekend last year when both X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass delivered underwhelming openings. With an estimated $62 million for the three-day and $76.6 million for the four-day weekend, Disney's fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise finished atop the holiday weekend box office. Additionally, the film brought in an estimated $208.4 million internationally, the 12th largest overseas opening of all-time, as it opened in virtually the entire overseas marketplace. This includes a $67.8 million debut in China and an industry record opening in Russia of an estimated $18.6 million. Additional »

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Sails Toward $300 Million Opening Weekend Worldwide
Disney’s latest crack at the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise appears to be a global hit.
The fifth installment, subtitled “Dead Men Tell No Tales” is sailing to $270.6 million at the international box office. That, combined with the $77 million it’s expected to pull in over the four-day holiday domestically, should easily put the film over $300 million globally during its opening frame.
In China alone the movie will make an estimated $67.8 million. The third highest opening for any Disney movie is partially attributed to the opening coinciding with the country’s Dragon Boat Festival holidays.
The film saw the largest opening of all time in Russia with $18.1 million ($18.6 million including previews). The rest of the top five territories are Korea ($11.6 million); France ($9.3 million); and Germany ($8.4 million).
“Dead Men Tell No Tales” centers on Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow battling deadly ghost sailors, »
