Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest continues to make a killing at the box office. After breaking Monday's box office record of $14.4 million (set by Revenge of the Sith) with a whopping $18.1 million it has now gone on to break the Tuesday record as well.

Yo ho!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Takes Monday Record

I was recently discussing the Pirates phenomenon with my sister and it looks like this franchise's strength all comes down to one part adventure and two parts fun. Though the film's reviews were mixed at best, moviegoers can't imagine another film that they would want to see twice. With this strength behind it, Dead Man's Chest continues to break new records as it slowly approaches a Titanic level.

According to Variety, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest reported ticket sales of $15.7 million on Tuesday, easily sailing past the record of $12.6 million drawn by The Omen remake on its opening Tuesday last month.

The total domestic booty for Disney's sequel is now $169.5 million. Five-day gross is the second biggest ever, bigger than any film that opened on a four- or five-day holiday weekend and behind only Revenge of the Sith.

The Tuesday take was only 13% less than Monday's; a solid indication that this film is going to make a killing over the long haul.

Though the domestic box office report for Tuesday was slightly less than Monday, the international box office gave Pirates an increase over Monday with $6.4 million.

Will Titanic fall within range of the Flying Dutchman's cannons?

Stay tuned for updates.
