Box Office Roundup: Pirates Grab Big Booty

Opening Thursday night on Memorial Day weekend has certainly paid off for the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie, bringing its overall opening weekend sales to $126.5 million in the U.S. and $205.5 million internationally. This marks the biggest four-day Memorial Day weekend opener ever after last year's X-Men: The Last Stand.

The top three at the box office this weekend were each third installments in beloved series: Coming in at No. 2 was Shrek the Third with $51.3 million, while Spider-Man 3 brought in $13.7 million at the third spot. New thriller Bug was in fourth place with just over $3 million, and Georgia Rule straggled behind in the fifth spot with a little less than $2 million.

Pirates was really fun, but they used the monkey for WAY too many gags.

Yes! Pirates rock! And there is some speculation that perhaps Will's curse was only to last for that first 10 years... Who knows - hopefully the DVD release will include some deleted scenes that will help clear that up.

I saw it last night. It was a good movie, a little dark with a lot of death. But I was not happy with the ending between Will and Elizabeth. One day every 10 years! That sucks!! He looked soooo hot at the end. How could you leave that??

I wish I could go see potc3. I don't know how bad it was in America but every cinema within an hour's drive seems to have all the showings sold out, but then again i live in a pretty rural area...

Nice! The film was great. I hope it does better than Spider-Man 3 in the long run.
