POTC 4 Box Office : $346M in five days !

The box office of Pirates of Caribbean in just phenomenal: the movie, released since only five days - three days in the U.S - has already a box office of $346M - $90M in the U.S and $256M in the rest of the world!

As i've said in my review the movie is not bad, it's just that the POTC 1 is still the best of the series. But i'm not sure it deserves to make so much money in such a short time. However, as Disney is probably "happy happy" with these numbers i think we can bet easily on a POTC 5 in two years from now. Let's just hope that the next one will be as good as the first one!

That's good news anyway. It means that we are going to see new Pirates movies, and the most important to me, maybe new enhancements to the attractions and new versions of it in the new parks.

Hope that the next Pirates movie spends more money on the plot and less on SFX. The last movie was not bad, but the plot is too fantastic and full of wholes.

The best movie was the first, in my opinion because the plot is simpler, "more believable" and makes more sense for a pirates movie (cursed treasure). In contrast, the third one is more nonsense than Tim Burton's Alice, and the worst in my point of view.

Is it too much to ask for a plot in which the pirates plan to capture and loot a big Spanish galleon full of gold, that is travelling on the Caribbean on its way to Spain from the rich Central American colonies, or something like that? Or to ask for more realistic 17th century Pirate ships?

Anyway hope that the franchise still have a long and successful life!
