'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' breaks world box office records
'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' has beat the record for the biggest worldwide opening in history. In its first six days of release, Pirates of the Carribean has raked in a whopping $401 million.
"We knew that audiences all over the world were excited to see Johnny Depp and the rest of the fantastic Pirates cast in this latest adventure, but this record-setting response at the global box office has been nothing short of incredible," Walt Disney Studios spokesman Mark Zoradi says. "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End now has the biggest opening in movie history, and we're extremely proud of that achievement."
The Walt Disney movie has already broken US box office records for the best Memorial Day weekend debut, making $142.1 million.
At World's End wiped out the previous record for best opening set by the release of Spider-Man 3 earlier this year, which made a total of $382 million in its first few days.
