Hats off to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END–now #5 on all-time box office list!

As the summer of 2007 rolls along, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END has been quietly and steadily piling up box office receipts around the world. The latest take puts AT WORLD’S END’s box office gross at $304.5 million domestic and a whopping $624.9 million international, for a worldwide total of $929.4 million. This places AT WORLD’S END fifth on the list of all-time moneymakers, exceeded only by TITANIC, THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING, its sister ship PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST, and the first of the Harry Potter films, HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE. This is an amazing feat in a very competitive summer–congratulations to Disney, Jerry Bruckheimer, Gore Verbinski, and their marvelous band of pirates!–Part-Time Poet
