Weekend Box Office Update

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opened this weekend, earning an estimated $90 million domestically and almost $350 million worldwide. The US numbers are a bit lower than expected, most likely due to mixed critical reaction and higher 3D ticket prices. By comparison, the third Pirates film earned $114 million in its first weekend, without 3D ticket prices to boost their totals.

Bridesmaids came in at number 2, earning $21 million, and knocking Thor down to the third spot. Priest brought its total domestic gross to almost $24 million, after earning $4.6 million this weekend.

The big releases this coming week are The Hangover 2 and Kung Fu Panda 2, which open on Thursday. Here's this weekend's top 10:

1   Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - $90,100,000
