PIrates of the Caribbean 4 Tops the Box Office

Disney's latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, On Stranger Tides, easily took the top spot this weekend at the box office, with about $90 million. This is so far the highest opening for a movie this year, surpassing Fast Five's $86 million. However, despite this feat, On Stranger Tides, is still behind openings of At World's End ($114.7 million), and Dead Man's Chest ($135.6 million). Thus suggesting people are getting tired of the franchise. However (yes, again), on the international front, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, managed to set a record for the biggest opening ever, with about $256 million (cha-ching), beating previous record holder Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince ($236 million). In other words Disney will most likely green light more Pirates films.

Enough Pirates talk.

Bridesmaids managed to only drop about 20% this weekend, meaning it's getting great word of mouth. Managing to get bad word of mouth is Priest, which drop almost 70% this weekend... and may soon fall into a flop category.
