#BOXOFFICE: “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES” VERY MUCH ALIVE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES bows big with an $63 million opening for Disney the three-day Memorial Day weekend ($78 million over four day weekend) from 4,276 theatres across North America. Although off the mark of 2006’s Dead Men’s Chest’s spectacular $135 million opening, this still is good enough to make it a clear winner at the Box Office this weekend. It gets a 32% on the Tomatometer and an A- CinemaScore from Audiences. This makes this installment the fourth highest-debuting Film in its franchise.
In its fourth week out, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL. 2 comes out with $20.3 million, a total of $339 million domestically.
Opening in third is BAYWATCH with $17 million for Paramount Pictures from 3,647 theatres. It gets 18% on the Tomatometer and a B+ CinemaScore. It was made for $69 million.
ALIEN: CONVENANT lands in fourth with $11 million, earning $60 million over two weeks for 20th Century Fox.
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING is fifth with $6.8 million for Warner Bros., a two week tally of $25 million.
Rounding-out the Top Ten is THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS with $1.4 million for a total $222 million in North America over seven weeks.
