Featuring Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides added $4.7 million at the North American box office on Wednesday, May 25, according to Box Office Mojo.

In all likelihood, On Stranger Tides had its last day at the top yesterday. Today, the pirate adventure gets competition from The Hangover Part II (a.k.a. The Hangover 2) and Kung Fu Panda 2.

At no. 2, Bridesmaids pulled in $2.08 million. The Paul Feig-directed comedy features Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Rose Byrne, and Jill Clayburgh.

At no. 3, Kenneth Branagh's Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston, drew $1.08 million. One more drop and Thor will fall below the $1m-per-day mark; even so, the fantasy-actioner will pass the $150 million milestone at the domestic box office some time today.

At no. 4, Justin Lin's Fast Five, with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster, brought in $723,000.

Fast Five was followed by Scott Charles Stewart's Priest, which took in $412,000 at no. 5. The horror/thriller stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and future Snow White Lily Collins.

Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson's Something Borrowed scored $331,000 at no. 6.

Next in line were Carlos Saldanha's Rio, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, with $321k at no. 7, and Reese Witherspoon-Robert Pattinson-Christoph Waltz's Water for Elephants with $232,000, up one spot at no. 8.

Rounding out the top twelve were Paula Patton and Angela Bassett's Jumping the Broom, down one spot with $221,000; AnnaSophia Robb's Soul Surfer, up one spot with $80,000; Woody Allen-Owen Wilson's Midnight in Paris, down one spot with $71,000; and Born to Be Wild, back among the top twelve with $65,000.

Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family was gone from the top twelve on Wednesday.

Among the top-twelve movies, Midnight in Paris had by far the highest per-theater average, $11,851. Soul Surfer once again had the lowest, $82.

Also among the top twelve, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides posted the highest Tuesday-to-Wednesday drop-off rate, down 22 percent. Soul Surfer and Born to Be Wild were the only two movies to post attendance increases, up 4 percent and up 1 percent, respectively.

With Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides passed the $100 million milestone at the North American box office on Tuesday, May 24, after adding $6.05 million according to figures found at Box Office Mojo.

After five days out, On Strangers Tides' domestic total stands at $104.34 million. For comparison's sake: in 2007, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End passed the $100 million milestone on its third day out (not including its Thursday evening revenues); the previous year, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest had collected $100.27 million on its second day out.

On Strangers Tides' foreign total: $286.5 million, or close to 74 percent of the film's worldwide cume.

At no. 2 on an unusually slow Tuesday – most movies were down – Bridesmaids added $2.33 million (down 14 percent). The Paul Feig-directed comedy features Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Rose Byrne, and Jill Clayburgh.

At no. 3, Kenneth Branagh's Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston, drew $1.28 million.

At no. 4, Fast Five, with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster, pulled in $850k. Thus, Fast Five fell below the $1m-per-day mark on its 26th day out.

The action-thriller was followed by Scott Charles Stewart's Priest, which brought in $504,000 at no. 5. The horror/thriller stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Lily Collins.

Up one spot at no. 6, Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson's Something Borrowed scored $421,000.

Next in line were, Carlos Saldanha's Rio, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, with $341k (down one spot) at no. 7, and Paula Patton and Angela Bassett's Jumping the Broom with $275,000 at no. 8.

Rounding out the top twelve were Reese Witherspoon-Robert Pattinson-Christoph Waltz's Water for Elephants with $248,000, Woody Allen-Owen Wilson's Midnight in Paris with $80,000, AnnaSophia Robb's Soul Surfer with $77,000, Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family with $72,000.

Among the top-twelve movies, Midnight in Paris had by far the highest per-theater average, $13,471. Soul Surfer had the lowest, $79.

Also among the top twelve, Rio posted the highest Monday-to-Tuesday drop-off rate, down 36 percent. Something Borrowed and Madea's Big Happy Family were the only two movies to post attendance increases, up 1 and up 4 percent, respectively.

At no. 2 following Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Paul Feig's Bridesmaids grossed $20.88 million – down a modest down 20 percent – in North America this past weekend (May 20-22) according to weekend box office actuals found at Box Office Mojo.

Starring Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids passed the $50 million milestone domestically on Saturday. Total to date: $59.34 million. Cost: $32.5 million. The Universal release features Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Rose Byrne, and Jill Clayburgh.

At no. 3, Kenneth Branagh's Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston, drew $15.45 million (down 55 percent). Total: $145.36 million. Worldwide: 392.36 million. Cost: $150 million. Tom Hiddleston now has two movies among the top twelve, the other being Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

At no. 4, Fast Five, starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster, drew $10.57 million (down 48 percent). Total: $186.16 million. Worldwide: 506.16 million. Cost: $125 million (official); $175 million (nonofficial).

Fast Five is now the top 2011 movie at the worldwide box office, having just surpassed Rio. Its box office reign shouldn't last very long, however, as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides should hit that mark within the next ten days or so.

Fast Five was followed by Scott Charles Stewart's Priest, which pulled in $4.75 million, down a whopping down 68 percent, at no. 5. The horror/thriller stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Lily Collins. Total: $23.83 million. Worldwide: 61.43 million. Cost: $60 million.

Carlos Saldanha's Rio, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, with $4.68 million (down 43 percent) at no. 6. Total: $131.68 million. Worldwide: 445.38 million. Cost: $90 million.

Paula Patton and Angela Bassett's Jumping the Broom took in $3.7 million (down 48 percent, after losing more than 500 locations) at no. 7. Total: $31.32 million. Cost: $6.6 million.

Next in line was Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson's Something Borrowed with $3.51 million (down 49 percent) at no. 8. Total: $31.51 million. Worldwide: 34.21 million. Cost: $90 million.

Rounding out the top twelve were:

  • Reese Witherspoon-Robert Pattinson-Christoph Waltz's Water for Elephants with $2.17 million (down 48 percent, after losing more than 500 locations). Total: $52.45 million. Worldwide: $97.85 million. Cost: $38 million.
  • Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family with $956k (-57 percent, after losing more than 500 locations). Total: $51.72 million. Cost: $25 million.
  • AnnaSophia Robb's Soul Surfer with $930k (-49 percent, after losing nearly 500 locations). Total: $40.61 million. Cost: $18 million.
  • Midnight in Paris, starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, and Marion Cotillard, with $599,000. Worldwide: $6.49 million. Cost: $30 million.

Please note that some of the “lesser” worldwide grosses may be off by a week or so.

Gone from the top twelve this weekend were Born to Be Wild and Jake Gyllenhaal-Michelle Monaghan's Source Code.

Among the top-twelve movies Midnight in Paris had by far the highest per-theater average, $99,834. Soul Surfer had the lowest, $945.

Also among the top twelve (barring newcomers Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Midnight in Paris), Priest posted the highest weekend-to-weekend drop-off rate, 68 percent. Bridesmaids posted the lowest, down 20 percent.

Starring Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, the Rob Marshall-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides underperformed at the North American box office this past weekend (May 20-22), grossing $90.15 million according to weekend box office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. That's about $15m-$25 million less than a number of prognosticators – that includes distributor Walt Disney Pictures – had been expecting.

Even so, On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, had the best domestic opening weekend of 2011, beating Fast Five's $86.19 million. That says it all about moviegoers being desperate for “original” fare on the big screen. It also says quite a bit about On Stranger Tides' relatively weak hold on audiences – considering that 46 percent of the film's box office take originated at costlier 3D houses. (Fast Five didn't have that box office enhancing luxury.)

For comparison's sake, in late May 2007 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End collected $114.7 million (not adjusted for inflation) on its debut weekend, not including $13.24 million earned on Thursday evening. In early July 2006, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest earned $135.6 million (not adjusted for inflation) on opening weekend.

Last year, Tim Burton's 3D extravaganza Alice in Wonderland, also starring Johnny Depp, debuted in early March $116.1 million.

Obviously, on the domestic front On Stranger Tides will perform more modestly than the previous Pirates of the Caribbean sequels (and Alice in Wonderland). Even so, Disney – which reportedly shelled out $250 million for the film (several early reports had placed the budget at $150m) – is probably already drafting more of the same for Pirates 5. After all, On Stranger Tides is doing extremely well overseas, having collected an estimated $256.3 million in its first five days, thus breaking the record established by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince's $236 million two years ago.

Costlier 3D prices surely helped. Additionally, currency fluctuations may also have played a role here, as in a number of countries the US dollar is weaker than it was two years ago.

On Stranger Tides' top market was Russia ($28.6 million), where Johnny Depp showed up at the premiere. Next in line were China ($20m), the United Kingdom ($19.5 million), Germany ($19.4 million), Japan ($18.2 million), France ($14.8 million), South Korea ($12 million), Italy ($11.5 million), Australia ($10.3 million), Spain ($10m), Mexico ($9.8m) and Brazil ($6.1m).

I should add that nearly 68 percent (approx. $654m) of the box office grosses of At World's End and more than 60 percent ($642.86m) of the Dead Man's Chest grosses originated abroad.

On Stranger Tides is currently playing at 4,155 North American theaters, including 2,747 3D locations, among them 256 IMAX houses. Assisted by costlier 3D/IMAX ticket prices, its weekend per-theater average was $21,697.

At no. 2 following Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Paul Feig's Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig, grossed $6.38 million – about $400,000 more than what was reported last night – in North America on Friday, May 20, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.

Bridesmaids should pass the $50 million milestone domestically today. Total to date: $44.84 million. The Universal release features Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Rose Byrne, and Jill Clayburgh.

Also doing quite well in limited release is Woody Allen's latest, Midnight in Paris, which stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody, Kathy Bates, Léa Seydoux, and Tom Hiddleston. (Hiddleston had two movies among the top twelve on Friday; Thor was the other one.) At six theaters, Midnight in Paris collected $171,000, averaging $28,500 per site.

In fact, Midnight in Paris collected more on one day than the $160,000 You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger earned on its weekend debut in September last year.

At no. 3, Kenneth Branagh's Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston, drew $4.38 million.

At no. 4, Fast Five, starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster, drew $3.15 million.

Fast Five was followed by Scott Charles Stewart's Priest, which pulled in $1.45 million at no. 5. The horror/thriller stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Lily Collins.

Next in line were Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson's Something Borrowed with $1.2 million at no. 6 and Carlos Saldanha's Rio, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, with $1.1 million at no. 7.

Paula Patton and Angela Bassett's Jumping the Broom took in $1.06 million at no. 8.

Rounding out the top twelve were Reese Witherspoon-Robert Pattinson-Christoph Waltz's Water for Elephants with $660,000, Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family with $280,000, AnnaSophia Robb's Soul Surfer with $275,000, Midnight in Paris with $171,000.

Gone from the top twelve on Friday were Born to Be Wild and Jake Gyllenhaal-Michelle Monaghan's Source Code.

Among the top-twelve movies Midnight in Paris had the highest per-theater average, the aforementioned $28,500. Soul Surfer had the lowest, $279.

Also among the top twelve (barring newcomers Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Midnight in Paris), Rio posted the highest Thursday-to-Friday attendance increase, up 164 percent. Water for Elephants (after losing more than 500 locations) posted the lowest, up 73 percent.

Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, starring Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, opened in North America on Friday, May 20, with $35 million according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. That's about one million less than early, Friday night estimates found a Deadline.com.

Even so, if studio estimates hold, On Stranger Tides had the best opening day of 2011, beating Fast Five's $34.39 million – which says it all about moviegoers being desperate for “original” fare on the big screen.

I should add that On Stranger Tides' Friday figure includes $4.7 million from Thursday midnight screenings. Despite inflation and costlier 3D/IMAX ticket prices, On Stranger Tides should end up with $90 million or whereabouts for the weekend – or $15-$25 million less than some pundits had been expecting.

For comparison's sake, in late May 2007 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End collected $42.71 million (not adjusted for inflation) on its first Friday out – the movie had opened late on Thursday, when it brought in $13.24 million. In early July 2006, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest earned $55.83 million (not adjusted for inflation) on its Friday debut.

Also, last year Tim Burton's 3D extravaganza Alice in Wonderland, also starring Johnny Depp, opened on Friday, March 5, with $40.8 million.

Though On Stranger Tides will obviously perform more modestly than the previous Pirates of the Caribbean sequels (and Alice in Wonderland), Walt Disney shouldn't have to worry too much, as, much like its Pirates predecessors, the film is doing extremely well overseas. I should note that nearly 68 percent (approx. $654m) of the box office grosses of At World's End and more than 60 percent ($642.86m) of the Dead Man's Chest grosses originated abroad.

On Stranger Tides is currently playing at 4,155 North American theaters, including 2,747 3D locations, among them 256 IMAX houses. Assisted by costlier 3D/IMAX ticket prices, its Friday per-theater average was $8,424.

This more “modestly budgeted” Pirates of the Caribbean sequel reportedly cost $150 million. (Take that figure with a boulder of salt, though there have been complaints about the film's lackluster special effects – which probably means, relatively speaking, a more modest budget than those for the previous sequels.)

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opening with a mere $90 million at the North American box office despite costlier 3D ticket prices? That's a possibility – though not necessarily a probability – according to Deadline.com.

According to Finke's sources, the Rob Marshall-directed On Stranger Tides, which stars Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, and Geoffrey Rush, is expected to gross $36 million on Friday – including the already reported $4.7 million from Thursday midnight screenings. That would mean an opening between $90m-$100 million.

To give you an idea: the Saturday take of Kenneth Branagh-Chris Hemsworth's Thor was off by 8 percent compared to Friday's, which included Thursday midnight screenings; Paul Walker-Vin Diesel's Fast Five was down 13 percent compared to its Friday/Thursday midnight take.

On Stranger Tides is currently playing at 4,155 North American theaters, including 2,747 3D locations, among them 256 IMAX houses.

Anyhow, even the latest Johnny Depp adventure grosses only $90m, that will still be the biggest opening weekend of the year. Which, as I've mentioned before, says a lot about audiences being eager for “originality” when they go to the movies.

At no. 2, Paul Feig's well-received comedy Bridesmaids, featuring Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, was down a mere 24 percent on Friday, collecting an estimated $6 million.

Next in line wereThor with $4.5m,Fast Five with $3 million, and Paul Bettany-Cam Gigandet's Priest – down a whopping 75 percent from a week ago – with $1.4 million.

Remember, those are early, unofficial estimates. Official studio estimates for Friday will be released on Saturday morning. Weekend estimates will come out Sunday. Weekend box office actual will be released on Monday.

Starring Johnny Depp, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, and Oscar winners Penélope Cruz and Geoffrey Rush, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – minus Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom – opened in North America at midnight Thursday, earning an estimated $4.7 million at 2,210 locations according to Box Office Mojo.

That's considerably more than Thor's $3.3 million, but considerably less than, say, Iron Man 2's $7.5 million. According to Box Office Mojo's Brandon Gray, “a direct comparison to the last Pirates movie, At World's End, was not available, because that picture had pre-midnight Thursday evening previews (which grossed $14 million), but Dead Man's Chest had a midnight opening that raked in $9 million at around 2,100 locations.”

Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Nine), On Stranger Tides has generally received negative reviews from U.S. critics.

Overseas, On Stranger Tides debuted in 10 territories on Wednesday, collecting an impressive $18.5 million. After adding 27 markets on Thursday, the fourth sequel in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise took in $25.7 million that day.

According to Walt Disney Pictures, On Stranger Tides' $44.2 million two-day box office take – $10.3 million of which in Russia alone – was up 10 percent from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. At World's End went on to earn a whopping $654 million internationally.

This weekend, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is expected to gross between $105m-$115 million (including Thursday midnight screenings) in North America. Bridesmaids and Thor will be vying for the second spot, with each movie taking in anywhere between $16m-$20 million.

Besides the United States and Canada, On Stranger Tides is opening in Japan, China, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, India and other territories today.
