Mickey is drinking Cristal and dancing on the tables thanks to the continued box office take for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Let's face it, the mouse has been completely hammered ever since the film's opening weekend. Making money has never been this easy with even more records falling!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Breaks $300 Million


Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is beginning to taste Titanic numbers. Though this weekend featured a ton of new releases including Monster House, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Lady in the Water and Clerks II, Pirates was still able to hold on and look strong.

According to Variety, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was able to bring in $35 million over its third weekend with a drop of only 44% from the second weekend. Thanks to the small drops in ticket sales, Pirates has broken another record -- quickest to pass the $300 million mark on its 16th day. The total domestic take for the film is estimated to be $321.7 million domestically and 539 million worldwide. Can somebody say "sequel?" Wait, they already are working on one of those...

Can somebody say "another trilogy?"



Sony's launch of the CG animated film, Monster House, came in a distant but solid second with $23 million at 3,553 engagements, well ahead of Warner's opening of M. Night Shyamalan's critically drubbed thriller Lady in the Water with $18.2 million at 3,253 sites -- barely a third of the first weekend take for the writer-director's last pic, The Village.

I guess his last pic left a bad taste in the moviegoers' mouths.

Can Pirates of the Caribbean continue on to $500 million domestically? Well, considering that this weekend featured a ton of new released and the film still held strong, expect it to get pretty damn close.

Stay tuned for updates.
