MUMBAI: Walt Disney Pictures‘ epic adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: At World‘s End, landed in the global box office record books and laid claim to the biggest opening in industry history with an unprecedented gross of $401 million in its first six days of release.


This was announced by Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture marketing and distribution president Mark Zoradi.


Pirates which rolled out on over 29,000 screens worldwide, showed on a record number of digital screens both domestically (1,064) and internationally (414) bringing the global total to 1,478.


Pirates still has a few markets yet to open including India on 1 June and China On 12 June.








According to an official announcement, domestically, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World‘s End raised its weekend estimate to $156 million (including Thursday night showings). The film set a new record for the four-day Memorial Day Weekend with its gross of $142 million (including Monday estimates), the film surpassed the previous high of $122.8 million set by "X2: X-Men United" in 2003.

At the international box office, Disney‘s latest Pirates adventure shattered records from Russia to Japan with its phenomenal $245 million cume through Monday (including Monday estimates). It also set new Walt Disney Studio records in the U.K. ($26.6 million), France ($17.7 million), Germany ($16.8 million) and Australia ($9.9 million). With its six-day tally of $245 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World‘s End has set a new international record that surpasses the previous six-day high of $232 million set by Spiderman 3 a few weeks ago.


This figure surpasses the previous record of $382 million set by the six day opening of Spiderman 3 earlier this year. Pirates continues to please audiences around the world with exceptionally strong exit polls.


Zoradi said, "We knew that audiences all over the world were excited to see Johnny Depp and the rest of the fantastic ‘Pirates‘ cast in this latest adventure, but this record-setting response at the global box office has been nothing short of incredible. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World‘s End‘ now has the distinction of having the biggest opening in movie history, and we‘re extremely proud of that achievement. Credit goes to the multitude of talent both in front of and behind the camera. Jerry Bruckheimer, Gore Verbinski and their exceptional teams as well as the creative minds of writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have proven to be the perfect recipe for success."
