“Pirates” Takes Home Impressive Booty

May 29th, 2007 // 2 Comments

Despite failing to eclipse “Spider-Man 3″ over the weekend, the “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” opening beat the Memorial Day weekend box office record. The third installment of the “Pirates” film series earned a whopping $115.1 million from Friday to Sunday. And, if you’re counting Monday to the three-day weekend, the film amassed $142.1 million in ticket sales. These box-office totals were responsible for making the movie the fourth largest three-day weekend opening ever.

I’m having trouble comprehending the magnitude of these numbers, because I’m at a point in my life where $.25 million looks like plenty to me. (Do you like how I said “point in my life,” like I anticipate that it’s only a matter of time before I’m rich and rolling in Scrooge McDuck piles of money?)
