'Pirates of the Caribbean' tops box office, 'Baywatch' sinks

The hack that wasn't: Disney CEO says company was not hacked and no movie was stolen

So the only question is; will the film make money?

No, not at all.

In the swashbuckling film, the ghost of Captain Salazar, played by Oscar victor Javier Bardem ("No Country for Old Men"), wants Jack Sparrow to pay for causing his untimely death. It also signals a case of franchise fatigue: The 2006 sequel Dead Man's Chest debuted with $135.6 million, 2007's At World's End premiered with $114.7 million, and, most recently, 2011's On Stranger Tides pulled in $90 million its first weekend. The movie now has a 78 percent fresh rating from audiences.

Though the exact film was not revealed, sources indicate that the hackers claimed to be in possession of Disney's newest franchise entry "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales". Amid a summer of disappointing box office flops, Guardians is an impressive early success story that continues to dominate each weekend, having yet to fall out of the top two in its first month in theaters.

Just for context: Prometheus finished its domestic theatrical run in 2012 with $126.5 million in ticket sales, plus an additional $276.9 million from foreign audiences - and it never even opened in China.

Additional demographic information for Dead Men Tell No Tales saw the film receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The film generated an estimated $4.5 million on Thursday, which includes $1.25 million from Wednesday night previews.

What we're saying is Jack Sparrow probably doesn't have enough treasure left over to handle Diana of Themyscira.

Disney, based in Burbank, California, was expecting the movie to generate sales in the mid-$70 million range in US and Canadian theaters through Monday, down from a previous forecast of $80 million.

The Johnny Depp starrer returned with its fifth instalment and bowled over the R-Rated reboot movie for a grand opening. The rest of the top five territories are Korea ($11.6 million); France ($9.3 million); and Germany ($8.4 million).

The summer movie season kicked off with the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The marketing for the film has named the installment as the "final adventure".
