Here is a brief update for all of you wannabe scallywags out there who are still rooting for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Though the film has already made oh so much money in its opening weekend -- $179 million in fact -- it is always nice to hear that you made a few million more.

Hell, I get excited when I hear I made a few dollars more; so go Disney!


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Domestic Box Office Slightly Bigger


Earlier this week we reported that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was able to break records by pulling in $132 million at the domestic box office over the three-day weekend -- absolutely smashing the record held by Spider-Man (read here).

Well, it turns out that estimated number was pretty far from the mark. After every ticket was finally counted, the total sum of the three-day weekend rose to $135.6 million. Though it is nice to have the extra money, the only record not broken by Pirates over the weekend still remained out of the film's grasp.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ticket sales of $44.4 million on Saturday kept the film just out of grasp of the record set by Shrek 2 with $44.8 million.



I guess it should be noted that both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Shrek 2 concentrated on being EXTREMELY fun films for all ages; a working formula I suppose.

Now we are left with one question: Can Pirates go on to break the $300 million mark (domestically) or was the opening weekend created by hype?

Stay tuned for updates.
