It's your Pirates of Caribbean update:

Pirates is now 14th on the All Time highest grossing movies in the U.S. at $337 million. It just passed Forrest Gump and the Lion King, right on Finding Nemo's tail. And the weekend's coming up:

It is the fastest movie in U.S. history to reach $100 million, fastest to reach $200 million, and the fastest to reach $300 million in U.S. history.


And I still don't get it......

The youth is fascinated by Pirates.

I dont know how many of my friends went to see that movie the first night even though it was disney and didn't have the usual sex, violence, special effects that would otherwise draw them to the box office.

There is a certain "cool" aura around the idea of a pirate that kids/young adults can relate with i guess.

I thought it was terrible and asked for my money back afterward.

Was it this thread that TMOGE ripped geewiz a new one about this past weekend's movie earnings?

I remember something about geewiz saying Clerks 2 will make alot of money and TMOGE came in and just shred him to pieces.

Funny stuff.
No, that was the lady in the water thread, and I ripped HIM to pieces, but you wouldn't know, because nobody reads my retaliations because you don't want to admit to yourselves that I can hold my own against anybody.

Yeah Clerks didn't even get top 5 in the box office. Little Man, on its second week, even beat it. Jeez. Movie sales depend solely on advertising. That's all there is to it. Doesn't matter how good the movie is, if you make a McDonalds toy out of it, put commercials on all the major networks and previews before every movie, people will flock.

Damn it was a good movie, but not that damn good. Especially since it leaves you hanging at the end.

Default It's your Pirates update....

You know what it's time for. Your Pirates update.....

Pirates grossed yet another $20 million this weekend. Pirates has now grossed $358 million in the U.S. It is now ELEVENTH on the all time list in the U.S. It just passed Finding Nemo, LOTR two towers, and the legendary Jurassic Park.
Next up: Passion of the Christ.

Did I mention Pirates is easily the top grossing movie of the year by more than $100 million? ("Cars" is 2nd with $234 million).

When will the madness end?

I still don't get it......

POTC2 is just a solid flick. its one of the few summer blockbusters that actually delivers. it kills SUperman and XMen. just kills them. and it does it despite the charisma challenged Orlando Bloom playing a main character.

You know what it's time for...your Pirates update!!!!!

How good is this movie doing? It opened July 7th, and on Wednesday, August 2nd...it was STILL the number one movie for the day....FOUR WEEKS LATER.

The movie made $2.5 million on Wednesday, edging out Miami Vice.

The movie has now grossed $366 million dollars - and is about to break into the Top Ten All Time.

And I STILL don't get it.......
