Box Office: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Plunders $5.5 Million on Thursday Night
Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” pillaged $5.5 million at Thursday night screenings.

The fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean” — the first since 2011 — is poised to dominate Memorial Day moviegoing, while Dwayne Johnson’s “Baywatch” should deliver moderate results during the holiday. Recent forecasts placed “Dead Men Tell No Tales” in the $80 million range as it launches at 4,276 North American locations during the Friday-Monday weekend.

The international “Dead Men Tell No Tales” debut — which began Wednesday — should deliver between $150 million and $175 million.

“Baywatch” opened with an estimated $4.5 million on Thursday, which includes $1.25 million from Wednesday night previews. Paramount’s R-rated action-comedy, which is opening in 3,647 North American locations, had generated predictions ranging from $32 million to $40 million for the five-day Thursday-Monday period.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” centers on Depp’s swashbuckling Jack Sparrow battling deadly ghost sailors, led by the Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites join the cast, with Orlando Bloom returning as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.

Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, who teamed on “Kon-Tiki,” are directing “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Joe Caracciolo, Jr., Terry Rossio, and Brigham Taylor.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” is only the third wide release this year from Disney, which has so far seen blockbuster results from “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” hauling nearly $2 billion at the global box office. “Beauty” has taken in $1.22 billion worldwide and the “Guardians” sequel has hit $742 million.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” carries an estimated $230 million budget, so Disney needs worldwide ticket sales to reach at least $500 million to see a profit on the tentpole.

The third film in the franchise, 2007’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” set a Memorial Day weekend record when it launched with $139 million over the four days.

The four previous “Pirates” movies have grossed $1.28 billion domestically and $2.45 billion internationally, with the North American market representing a smaller share with each new film. On 2011’s “On Stranger Tides,” the domestic total hit $241 million while the foreign markets delivered $804 million.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” will launch this weekend in about 91% of the international market, virtually everywhere but Japan. For its part, Paramount is leaving the foreign markets to “Pirates” and will open “Baywatch” in about two-thirds of international territories on the first weekend in June.

Both films, however, are sinking ships when it comes to critical acclaim. “Pirates” is not connecting with critics, earning a 29% “rotten” rating on ‎Rotten Tomatoes‎, while “Baywatch” carries a 19% “rotten” rating.

The online ticket service Fandango reported on Thursday that “Dead Men Tell No Tales” was outpacing Disney’s “The Jungle Book” (2016) at the same point. The live-action “Jungle Book” wound up with $364 million domestically and $966 million worldwide.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Says Ahoy To $34.5M In Offshore Start – International Box Office

Disney’s return to the swashbuckling adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow is off to a No. 1 start in all offshore markets. Through yesterday, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has reeled in $34.5M at the international box office. With domestic previews, that brings the global total to $40M as we head into the weekend.

Related'Pirates' Previews Pull In $5.5M, 'Baywatch' Catches Estimated $4.5M Surf -- Box Office Friday AM
Early estimates out of China, a key swing on how this Johnny Depp-starrer fares abroad, indicate an opening day today of $20M+ (that includes previews, but is not included in the overseas number above).

The launch day for Pirates 5, also known as Salazar’s Revenge in some overseas markets, ranks among the top debuts of the year in several hubs including Germany, Austria, France, Finland, Sweden, Belgium, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The Joachim Ronning-Espen Sandberg-directed movie began overseas rollout on Wednesday with a strong opening in France ($2.3M, 2nd biggest bow of 2017, 5% behind opening day of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, 4% ahead of Captain America: Civil War, 34% ahead of Jungle Book — all in admissions).

Korea was also a good opening, 6% behind POTC4, and in Norway, the helmers’ home country, POTC5 had an 83% market share. Indonesia bowed significantly ahead of the opening day of Pirates 4. Thailand, at $400K, had its 2nd biggest opening day of 2017 to date. In a sign of how some Asia Pacific markets have grown over the years, this was 66% ahead of the opening day of Pirates 4

Thursday’s openings brought Germany the biggest start for a film of 2017 at 40% above POTC4. The UK was also a No. 1 bow, although this week’s Manchester terrorist attack is expected to impact box office this weekend. In the Netherlands, POTC5 was the top opening day of 2017 with $900K and the 2nd highest opening day for any Disney release behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It came in 47% ahead of POTC4.

Other markets topping the 2011 film’s performance on opening day include the UAE, Russia ($3.6M), Malaysia and Argentina.

In addition to China — which is heading into the Dragon Boat holiday — Spain and Mexico open today along with several other markets. Major markets not opening this weekend include Japan, which opens July 1.

For reference, On Stranger Tides‘ opening weekend was about $175M in the same markets and at today’s exchange rates; it went on to gross $805M offshore.

:applause2: :hope: Lots of events happening this weekend in the UK being it's a holiday weekend and of course the terrorist incident could affect some but I think many others will be happy to escape reality and go watch a fun film. I'm looking forward to reading the official figures once the weekend is over. Thanks Snoopy for the reports.

Why ‘Pirates’ & ‘Baywatch’ Are Shipwrecked At The Domestic B.O. — Friday Night Update

by Anthony D'Alessandro
and Anita Busch
May 26, 2017 9:56pm

UPDATED, 9:56 PM: Memorial Day weekend at the box office — remember when it actually use to have some significance?

Ever since Sony moved the start of summer to the first weekend in May with 2002’s Spider-Man ($114.8M), it has arguably never been the same, with bigger films launching in the first corridor of the month and sucking up all the air at the B.O. (case in point: This weekend, Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looks to beat Paramount’s Baywatch for second place with an estimated $20.4M over 3-days and $26.6M over 4-days in its fourth frame).

However, the problem with this holiday stretch in recent years isn’t because moviegoers have abandoned it for beaches and barbecues, rather it’s due to the lackluster product that’s out there from offbeat I.P. to dull Nth sequels –i.e. Prince of Persia, Tomorrowland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Baywatch and the blase turnout for X-Men: Apocalypse and now this year’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales which at a $230M negative cost before P&A is coming in well below its $80M-$85M projections with $62.3M over 3-days and $76.3M. Each year we stand here and look ahead thinking next year’s goods is going to reverse this soft Memorial Day trend. Fingers crossed for Disney/Lucasfilm’s Han Solo Star Wars anthology movie next year.

Let’s start with Pirates: Even though stateside this is the lowest opening of the series, charting below the fourth installment On Stranger Tides ($90.1M), by the time Sunday arrives, I hear Disney will be fine with this movie on a global basis, which looks to come in between $250M-$260M. The pic’s buckling here in U.S./Canada stems strictly from — what’s new? The movie in its marketing looks exactly like the other four titles which are all a blur plot-wise, and the only film the critics love in the franchise is the first one at 79% fresh. Dead Men Tell No Tales has 32% which is equal to On Stranger Tides‘s RT score, both the lowest for the franchise. Disney never bothered to fix this franchise in the same way that they ensure that Marvel, Lucasfilm, and their animated fare win over both audiences and reviewers. What’s going on here with Dead Men Tell No Tales that distinguishes it from its predecessors and makes it a want-to-see? Story-wise, it sure isn’t Jack Sparrow’s Spectre. Those buying tickets seem to have no regrets, giving it an A- CinemaScore, which is higher than the B+ of On Stranger Tides, and in line with the second title Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. Disney is expecting a pop tomorrow from family matinees.

But again, Pirates will win overseas, and in building this ship, Disney knew that, and probably was bracing for domestic to under-perform. After On Stranger Tides came up short with the lowest domestic total in the series at $241M (and this sequel likely lower), Disney propelled that fourthquel to an amazing $1.045 billion take. China is the market that will get Dead Men Tell No Tales over its hump as Nancy Tartaglione pointed out in our curtain raiser, and it definitely helps that Disney held the world premiere there, the first ever for a Hollywood title. The fifthquel is a fresher franchise abroad in burgeoning cinematic markets, and that’s what the upside is here.

Dead Men Tell No Tales drew 51% men to 49% women. Those under 18 at 20% gave the movie an A. Forty percent came out for Johnny Depp per CinemaScore, grading it an A-, while 42% came out for subject matter and 38% for type of movie, which indicates that Pirates fans came out for this.

On the bright side for Disney this weekend, Beauty and the Beast will become the eighth title in domestic B.O. history to cross $500M, and by Sunday, GOTG2 will have officially beaten its predecessor’s U.S./Canada total ($333.1M).

Baywatch isn’t bailing out Paramount after an atrocious 2017 at the domestic B.O. that includes xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Monster Trucks, Rings and Ghost in the Shell. Tracking had this movie over 5 days in the $40M range, maybe even hitting $50M, and this Dwayne Johnson-Zac Efron combo is going to come in with $26.1M, just a tad higher than the three-day for Neighbors 2:Sorority Rising ($21.8M opening/$55.4M domestic). Baywatch is close to twice the price of Neighbors 2, which carried a negative cost before P&A of $35M.

So after the Super Bowl spot, all the rah-rah at CinemaCon, the fun-hysterical trailers, why did Baywatch sink? Some attribute it to how TV properties have become harder to adapt for the big screen, the last casualty being Dax Shepard’s low budget version of CHiPs at $18.6M domestic, but even riskier was that Paramount took a general audience action series from the 1990s and turned into an R-rated movie. But the biggest oversight by Paramount according to sources is that they sold Baywatch primarily to women in its beefcakes of Johnson and Efron and not the guys. Remember, Baywatch was always a guy show, its poster girl being Pamela Anderson. So where’s the poster girl, here?

Filing fourth is 20th Century Fox’s Alien: Covenant with an estimated $12.3M over 3-days (-66%) and $15.3M over four for a running total of $62.1M by end of Monday.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Says Ahoy To $86.5M – Int’l Box Office Update

by Nancy Tartaglione
May 26, 2017 9:04am

UPDATED, 9:04 AM: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opened in nine more territories on Friday and now sits at an international tally of $86.5M (and climbing) with China leading the way at the box office. Audiences in the Middle Kingdom which enjoyed a Pirates premiere — the first world premiere of a Hollywood film in China — have bought tickets to the tune of $21.3M for the studio. The film is now open in more than 90% of its international footprint. Only the key market of Japan (the country that loves Disney movies) is yet to open; it sails into that country on July 1.

So far, Disney has taken in $110M through yesterday and is now looking at a worldwide haul by tomorrow of $275M. The overseas box office has grown in importance over the years for this and other franchises. Specifically for the Pirates‘ franchise, 53% of the worldwide gross in 2003 came from overseas and on the last go around in 2011, that percentage grew to 76%.

Speaking of percentages, Pirates has a big 87% marketshare in China right now, and it already ranks as the 4th highest Disney opening day ever. It has already surpassed the entire cume of the third Pirates‘ movie, At World’s End.

Pirates is also No. 1 in Mexico with a 68% marketshare and already 29% ahead of the opening day of Pirates 4 On Stranger Tides. Spain opened to about $1.5M, which ranked No. 1 for the opening day (it also has a strong 67% of the market).

Pirates’ $208 Overseas Start And $275M Global Take Will Push Disney Franchise Past $4B Mark

Anita Busch
May 28, 2017 8:55am

Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer’s fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean launched overseas last week and then added more territories over the weekend to bring its international footprint up to 90%. In its maiden voyage, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has grossed $208M compared to its lower than expected domestic haul of $62.2M for the three day and $76.6M for the holiday. And, internationally, it really had the weekend to itself so its booty ended up with a strong $285M, thanks, in big part to China which grabbed $67.8M. In the Middle Kingdom that result marks the third highest three-day for any Disney title, only behind Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In China, Dead Men Tell No Tales has now exceeded the entire runs for At World’s End and On Stranger Tides. In Imax, the film opens on 1,088 overseas screens this session – roughly 400 of them in China. On Stranger Tides (using historical rates) took a $70M booty fully in the country previously.

All films were impacted across Europe because of the Manchester terrorist attack so we take that into account this weekend as we report. In 2015 after the Paris terrorist, box office dipped 20%. We are seeing a similar scenario playing out now.

In 2003, the international market for The Curse of the Black Pearl comprised about 53% of the overall box office take for the Pirate franchise an by the time On Stranger Tides reached the shore in 2011, that had grown to 76%. So all Ayes are on the international market for this film. It has opened everywhere but in Japan, which is a key market for the franchise.

Each of the Pirates movies has increased its overseas box office steady as she goes with (at historical rates) Curse Of The Black Pearl ($349M), Dead Man’s Chest ($643M), At World’s End ($654M) and On Stranger Tides ($805M).

Disney concentrated on China and marketed the film heavily, even hosting the first-ever world premiere of a Hollywood film in Mainland China. The high-profile event was at its Shanghai Disney Resort and was held May 11,15 days ahead of release and the Chinese swarmed in to get a look at Johnny Depp. (All of the previous films in the Pirates franchise were shown at the Beijing Film Festival in April).

The China release is being helped by its Dragon Boat Festival which kicked off on Sunday and will run through May 30. Remember the box office success of Warcraft last year that seemingly came out of nowhere? It launched during this same holiday in China.

Dead Men Tell No Tales (also known as Salazar’s Revenge in some international markets) posted the lowest opening stateside of the series down 31% from On Stranger Tides.

For the comp, On Stranger Tides opened to about $175M in the same markets and at today’s exchange rates; it went on to gross $805M offshore at a time. China was the No. 2 market for that film.

As my colleague Nancy Tartaglione noted: Disney has been aggressive in promoting this Pirates’ installment in overseas markets, by bringing in Depp and the rest of the cast and filmmakers to promote the film as often as possible. They showed up at Disneyland Paris on May 14, a surprise visit that made news around the world. The studio also heavily promoted fan screenings in Europe, Latin America and in Russia while in the UK and Australia, they did a pr stunt with ghost pirate sculptures appearing and disappearing and projecting ghost ships in places like Sao Paolo Brazil’s biggest shopping mall and in Sydney Harbor.

IMAX was good for $14M internationally for Dead Men Tell No Tales and $24M globally. The $14M take for IMAX was the 2nd biggest international IMAX opening in May only after Captain America: Civil War.

On Stranger Tides’ Top 5 markets at historical rates were Japan ($109M), China ($70M), Russia ($64M), Germany ($62M) and the UK ($54M). France, Brazil, Mexico, Australia and Spain round out the Top 10. More to come …

So disappointing to see the stateside turnout so far behind previous Pirates flicks. The first thing that will accompany any future media mention of POTC5 will be its domestic totals - and it will be gleefully labeled a "flop" regardless of the international component.

I am truly shocked also with the constant critics slamming Johnny and the Pirates franchise!! I will not read 1 review from a critic. The box office will tell the tale in the end and it will hit the billion dollar mark and yes critics will consider it a flop.Thats why Johnny should just sail off in his beloved Black Pearl beyond his horizon.. He has done Disney well as Disney has done Johnny well. Go out on top, these 5 pirate installments will live on for generations loved and cherished forever!! Oh and I will be adding more to the box office take tomorrow!!!!!

Those Rotten Tomatoes reviewers are ridiculous. I think they have it at 33%, whereas audience reviews peg it at 78%! They are totally out of touch with what the Pirates' audience wants. I accept that not everyone is a fan of the franchise, but it still stands as being a fun and fast paced summer movie with appeal for all ages. Hopefully here in the UK people will come out and support it despite recent events.
