Weekend Box Office: ‘Pirates 5’ Sails to No. 1; ‘Baywatch’ Sinks

Memorial Day Weekend

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is sailing to No. 1 this Memorial Day Weekend with $62.1 million three-day haul at the domestic box office, which is $30 million less than what the previous entry, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, opened with. The $230 million sequel will score around $77 million for the four-day domestic total, and a possible $275 million weekend worldwide.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus Sequel

Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant from 20th Century Fox looks to be the winner at the domestic box office with a three-day estimate of $36 million from 3,761 locations, which just barely edged out a major holdover Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that collected $35 million in its third week of release.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demian Bechir and more, Scott‘s divisive sequel to Prometheus cost $97 million to make and opened 29 percent behind the first Alien prequel.

The eighth episode in the Fast and Furious franchise also becomes the highest-grossing imported film in China with $361 million.

Pantelion Films’ How to be a Latin Lover with a super-impressive $12 million and Great India Films’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion with estimated $10.1 million debut ahead of STXfilms and EuroCorp’s The Circle, which debuted with just $9.3 million from 3,163 theaters.

A global cum now stands at $908.4 million, and there’s a good chance that the F. Gary Gray-directed film (made for $250 million) will cross the $1 billion mark next weekend, even with the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.
