I think everyone here at ESA talent agency is excited for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie to come out. Whether it’s crazy pirates or unique storytelling, the new film should have something for all ages.
After the huge success of The Fate Of The Furious, and with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 due out this weekend, it’s safe to say that the summer blockbuster season is now well and truly upon us. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is the costliest of all of these films; its budget allegedly came in at around $320 million, which means that the film is going to have to make an awful amount of money in order for it to recoup its costs. We now have our first indication of how much Pirates: Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is going to make when it opens at the end of the month, as it has been predicted that the nautical adventure will gross somewhere between $90 million and $100 million.
If the above proves to be true, Disney would undoubtedly be very happy with this return for the film. While this amount would be quite a bit lower than both the $135 million opening for Dead Man’s Chest and $114 million that At World’s End brought in in its first few days, it would match On Stranger Tides’ opening weekend total of $90.1 million. On Stranger Tides is currently the second highest grossing installment of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, as it ultimately went on to gross $1.045 billion back in 2011, which was just short of Dead Man’s Chest’s $1.066 billion in 2006.
