Pirates 2: hit of the year
rediff Entertainment Bureau | July 17, 2006 18:23 IST
Captain Jack Sparrow has done it, again.
Johnny Depp-starrer Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest has taken top spot at the box office for the second week in a row with $62.2 million. In just ten days, the film has made $258.2 million in the US alone.
This makes Disney's Pirate sequel easily the year's top-grossing film, as it swerves overwhelmingly past X-Men: The Last Stand -- which took eight weeks to make its $232 million.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, directed by Gore Verbinski and also starring Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, releases in India on Friday, July 21.
