Pirates To Remain E-ticket Fare


Pity the two newcomers as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is expected to continue to seize box-office treasure over the weekend. You, Me and Dupree, starring Owen Wilson, Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon, and Little Man, starring Marlon and Shawn Wayans are each expected to earn somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 million apiece, while Pirates, according to analysts, is likely to add another $60-70 million to its booty, with many moviegoers who flocked to theaters last week to see the Johnny Depp sequel returning for a second ride. If it does, it would -- in a single ten-day period -- become the highest-grossing film of the year, exceeding the $231.7 million earned during the entire run of X-Men: The Last Stand.. The record for a second weekend was set by Shrek 2, which earned $72.2 million in 2004.
