In case you have been living under a rock, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest broke box office records by pulling in $132 million over the three-day weekend. The Disney execs have been drinking Cristal with Mickey ever since while they brainstorm on how to create another twenty more Pirates movies.
As if they really needed any other reason to create more films, the international numbers serve more as icing on the cake.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest International Box Office
According to THR, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest didn't stop pulling in the booty at the North American borders. The film sailed overseas and was able to bring in quadruple the amount that Curse of the Black Pearl did over its three-day weekend. Talk about improvement!
How much skrilla are we talking about? Dead Man's Chest's international ticket sales from just seven markets -- U.K., Korea, Australia, Thailand, Taiwan, New Zealand and Uruguay -- totaled $46.6 million.
The international box office numbers gives Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest a total box office take of $179 million over the three-day weekend.
It has been told that, out of excitement, Mickey Mouse hollered, "I'm rich biatch!" I can't, however, confirm this.
