That's fuckin unreal. tongue

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

I can believe it that it made that much. Now i'll be finding out if it's as good as the other ones. I'll be seeing this tomorrow. So hopefully i won't be disappointed.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

Not a surprise.  They even made the advanced "midnight" screening at 8, so all the little school girls could go and see Orlando Bloom on the big screen.  It's funny, because I have no interest in seeing this film, yet, it's so damn popular.  Eh...

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

I know it's not a surprise..... it's just alot of fuckin money tongue

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

This is just the beginning. It first started with Spider-Man 3. Now it's Pirates 3. Just wait until the other blockbuster movies roll right in. Like Transformers and The Simpsons. And so on.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

Transformers doesn't interest me in the least and the Simpsons, well I have no idea what to think of that.
But I really enjoyed the 2 Pirates movies and I'm sure I will enjoy the third one.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

Well i'm definitely more than excited to see Transformers The movie b/c i grew up watching the cartoon series and collected all the toys and seeing the trailers, i'm more than excited than ever to see it. And when it comes to The Simpsons movie, well it's The Simpsons.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

Pirates would have done better to leave Orlando Bloom out of the series other than that I liked the movie.

I am going to see Pirates 3 Friday. I predict Transformers is THE summer blockbuster. I really wanna see it lol.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

I've been waiting for a kick ass trailer to Transformers to see how it looks from transforming from vehicle to robot and MY GOD! So god damn beautiful. I'm more excited to see Transformers than The Simpsons or any of the other summer blockbuster movies.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

to bad they won't have the Dinobots big_smile

Actually I am looking forward to seeing Fido, I mean doesn't everyone want a pet zombie!

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

Oh i know. I was actually hoping that they were going to have the Dinobots and other Transformers from the series and movie.

Having a pet zombie would be awesome. He would only be nice to you but not to everyone else.

You got that right, my friend.

Re: Pirates 3 Makes $400 Million Opening Week

A lot of money yes, but they released it at 8 PM on Thursday and had the advantage of an extra day with the memorial day weekend.

And by the way, the $400 million was the WORLD WIDE take.  It only made $156 mil in the states, and only $142 of it was Friday thru Sunday.  So compare: Spidey manke $151 million Fri-Sunday, and Pirates makes $156 million from 8 pm Thursday evening to Monday night. 

I think the biggest surprise is despite the success of Pirates that Shrek still make 70 Million in it's second week.
