Walt Disney Pictures is reporting a $126.5 million gross for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End this weekend. The Monday totals are not yet available, but the film is looking to break the four-day memorial weekend record.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is the 53rd Walt Disney film to break through the $100 million barrier. The film is poised to have the biggest worldwide opening ever. It has already accumulated $332 million throughout the globe in just five days.
Walt Disney President Mark Zoradi said, "Audiences all over the world are clearly having a blast with this latest 'Pirates' adventure and we're thrilled to report that the film is on track to have the biggest worldwide opening in movie history. From every corner of the world, the film is playing like gangbusters, and we think that this enthusiasm and good will is going to continue for a long time to come."
I guess we can look forward to future installments, then. Good news indeed.
