Pirates Unstoppable Overseas


Business may have slowed for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End domestically, but it's riding high overseas where it has topped $500 million in just 20 days, a record, the Walt Disney Co. said Wednesday. Daily Variety reported today (Thursday) that the achievement beats Spider-Man 3 by an entire week and that the figure represents two of every three dollars of the movie's worldwide gross. As of Tuesday, the domestic total for Pirates stood at $257.7 million; overseas, at $505.6 million; worldwide, at $763.1 million. A somewhat shortened version opened in China on Tuesday, taking in $1.3 million, the studio said, noting that the country's censors had demanded a number of cuts mostly involving Chow Yun-Fat, who portrays a Chinese pirate Captain.
