#1 in May 20's Weekend Box-Office was "Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides," yet it still didn't quite live up to all of the expectations. Keep in mind, the film is both a sequel and comes in 3D and, according to a Disney exec, 3D is "very soft" in the U.S. and Canada. Hence the $90.1 million "Pirates 4" earned nationally in its opening weekend. Though the numbers aren't slight, compare them to Disney's expectations of an $100 million weekend and the $114 million 2007's "Pirates 3" earned during it's opening Memorial day weekend. Though the film didn't meet its "potential" here in the U.S., overseas it is now the best global, international, and domestic opening of 2011.
In it's opening weekend, "Pirates 4" earned the titles of #1 biggest 5-day international opening (earning $256.3 million) and #4 biggest global opening of all time (earning $346.4 million).

"Bridesmaids" is still holding strong at #2, earning another $21.1 million and beating out "Thor," which has been #1 for the past two weeks but has now dropped to #3. "Fast Five," at #4, reached the $500 million mark worldwide this weekend. Check out the rest of the Box-Office results below:
