Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End' stays on course with $43.2 million at box office

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" remained the number one film at the box office for the second weekend in a row, continuing the success of the popular pirate-themed franchise based on the Disneyland attraction Pirates of the Caribbean.

The third installment of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy earned an estimated $43.1 million this weekend, according to the Associated Press, bringing the film's domestic total to $216.5 million since its May 24 release. That is less than last year's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which had made $258.4 million after two weekends.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" earned more than $140 million in its opening weekend, breaking a record for the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Movie industry watchers say the second-weekend drop-off for "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" is typical of popular summer films with major openings. Most films nowadays aim to have a major opening weekend and push to have more viewers see the film during that first weekend.

A spokeswoman for Walt Disney Pictures says she expected a large drop-off in the second weekend.

Internationally, "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" brought its total to $625.3 million, after an additional $105.4 million this weekend.

This weekend's box office totals:

1. "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," $43.2 million.

2. "Knocked Up," $29.3 million.

3. "Shrek the Third," $26.7 million.

4. "Mr. Brooks," $10 million.

5. "Spider-Man 3," $7.5 million.

6. "Waitress," $2 million.

7. "Gracie," $1.4 million.

8. "Bug," $1.22 million.

9. "28 Weeks Later," $1.2 million.

10. "Disturbia," $1.1 million.
