Johnny Depp’s action movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: dead men tell No Tales” dominated our hearts the previous week, while Dwayne Johnson starred “Baywatch” is projected to gross over $45 million.

Forbes reports that the fifth installment of Disney’s famous “Pirates” franchise will make over $1.2 billion during its theoretical run. Currently, the film is being shown in over 4,220 North American locations and expected to earn over $90 million from Thursday and Friday night previews. On the other hand, “Baywatch” is expected to gross between $150 million and $175 million within next three weeks.

The two films dominate social media

No doubt, “Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Baywatch” dominated social media before their official release. Johnny Depp, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson, and other big stars regularly posted new stills and clips on official Twitter and Instagram accounts to create excitement among fans.

So far, no film has been able to break the records of “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2,” and “Beauty and the Beast.” The two movies grossed a total of $2.1 billion at the global box office. It is, however, thought that both “Baywatch” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” will break the records of previous blockbusters.

The estimated budget for “Dead Men” is $220 million, while “Baywatch” has been developed with a budget of $120 million (excluding its marketing costs).

Disney is already dominating the box office with its animated films, while Paramount Pictures’ new movie “Baywatch” is likely to gross $35 million from over 3,300 domestic locations.

Which movie will be the winner?

Forbes says that “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” will earn a lot more than “Baywatch.” There are various reasons for it; first of all, Disney has been in the news since the smashing success of “Beauty and the Beast,” while Paramount Pictures did not release any prominent film this year.

Secondly, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is an installment of an already-famous film franchise, while “Baywatch” is a reboot of the famous television series of the same name.

Pirates” is rated B by moviegoers, and “Baywatch” is rating R due to its controversial scenes. But that doesn’t mean Zac Efron-starred movie won’t come up the expectations of fans.

The film has already grossed $42 million, and it’s just the beginning; we hope that both of the movies will make a whopping $1.4 billion during their theoretical run. “Dead Men Tell No Tales” will be launched in about 92% international markets this weekend, including Korea, Japan, France, Switzerland, Thailand, China, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
