Walt Disney Co.'s DISN, +5.09% "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" earned $62 million in its first three days, and is on track to take $76.6 million in the US and Canada over the four-day holiday weekend, according to Box Office.

But not all is smooth sailing.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales proved to be the biggest fish in this small box office seas.

Box Office Mojo notes that the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 debuted in China with a box office collection of $67.8 million and an industry record opening in Russian Federation of an estimated $18.6 million.

But wait. It's 2017 and movies aren't as dependent on the United States market to turn a profit, which is evident as the franchise will hit over $4 billion worldwide in the next few days. The film's $783 million global total has already surpassed the global take from the first "Guardians" film. "This is one of the most prolific franchises of all time", Hollis said.


We actually went to a fan screening of the film to gauge the true reaction over a typical press screening which is often packed with people guaranteed to "love" the film no matter how awful. Maybe more people opted to stay home and catch up on Master of None instead of filling multiplex seats; maybe Baywatch and the fifth Pirates film just don't have what it takes to convince audiences to hand over $14.50 plus the price of popcorn.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales pulled in $208.4 million from its global debut, for a worldwide total of $285.4 million, a figure which was at the high end of many box office analysts worldwide projections, claiming the movie would earn between $230 and $285 million worldwide in its opening weekend. Last year, with "X-Men: Apocalypse" in the No. 1 slot, the box office came in at more than $205 million, while it was almost $195 million in 2015.

What we're saying is Jack Sparrow probably doesn't have enough treasure left over to handle Diana of Themyscira.

"Baywatch doesn't stand alone as a casualty in this marketplace, " Dergarabedian said. Check out the May 26-28 box office figures below. Would audiences accept a new leading man playing a new character? After years of disappointing Memorial Day weekend returns and movie release schedule increasingly crowded with big budget pictures, it seems that era is long gone. Not considered: trying to make good movies, instead of feeling a responsibility to turn any intellectual property with name recognition into a tentpole franchise, based on the notion that "general audiences" are unfathomably stupid.

What are your thoughts on the Pirates franchise future? But Hollywood rarely leaves money on the table so don't expect that to last.
