Pirates of the Caribbean: dead men tell No Tales” has managed to gross $501 million at the global box office, becoming one of the major hits this year. The fifth installment in the franchise was released on May 26, 2017, in IMAX 3D, Digital 3D, and RealD formats. The film has received mixed comments from critics and audiences, with some of them admiring the performance of Johnny Depp and action sequences while others are criticizing its story and cinematography.

The film at box office

In two weeks domestically, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” has grossed $115 million; its overseas earnings are over $500 million, and we hope that the film will touch the $1 billion mark at the global box office during its theoretical run.

If it happens, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” will break the box office records of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” In China and Japan, “Pirates 5” has made over $139 million, while its Russia’s gross is up to $32 million. South Korea is at the third place with $16 million, while the film made around $17 million in the United Kingdom and France.

The massive earnings of ‘Pirates 5.'

The film’s huge gains have pushed Disney past $1.6 million internationally. Johnny Depp plays Jack Sparrow, a character that earned him Oscar nominations in the past. Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg serve as film directors, with Javier Bardem playing a significant role alongside Johnny Depp.

Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom have returned to “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” from the fourth installment, and viewers admire their performance.

This weekend at the box office, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” was placed third with $22 million, behind “Wonder Woman” and “Captain Underpants,” which grossed $101 million and $65 million respectively.

So far, “Wonder Woman” is dominating the domestic and international box office; but we hope that “Pirates 5” will be able to gross up to $1 billion during its theoretical run. It was too easy for the film to cross $500 million at the global box office. The film reached the $500 million mark in only a few weeks, beating out “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.”

From its second Friday, the film could hardly make $24 million, thanks to a huge opening of “Wonder Woman.” As of June 3, 2017, “Pirates 5” has managed to gross $115 million in Canada and the United States and over $385 million in other countries against a production budget of $235 million (excluding the marketing costs).
