#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:

It’s amazing! They always produce a great movie. Johnny Depp is always a great actor. It’s just sad that both Keira and Orlando are not cast anymore on this movie.

I've seen the movie, which is awesome and has 3d effect. but it is very expensive movie.
I love it.

I like this one better than the other pirates look. Just want you to know that I have you to thank for my obsession with makeup. I would love a future in cosmetics but I’m still working on that part. I wear your looks a lot. Just want you to know your awesome!!

I really love to watch Disney movies, especially pirates of the Caribbean. It’s great that they still made it to the box office. And Johnny Depp is always a great actor as he is.

Definitely not the cream of the crop as the Pirates films go, with the 1st and 2nd one (in my opinion) being the best of the best. The film had its moments but they were few and far between and some parts were just far-fetched (more so than normal) – like Jack masquerading as a judge…
The film was not the worst of 2011 but it was far from the best
