On Memorial Day weekend, it clearly pays to be a pirate ... or at least Jack Sparrow.
Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" secured the No. 1 spot at the box office this three-day weekend and pulled in over $62 million.
That's the second-lowest domestic opening of all five films in the franchise, a sign that franchise fatigue could be setting in.
Thankfully, the fifth "Pirates" film — and its $230 million production budget — still has an international audience to fall back on. The movie should pull in more than $300 million globally by the end of the holiday weekend.
Combine that figure with the movie's post-credit scene, and no one should be surprised if Disney announces a sixth "Pirates" film.
Hanging on to the No. 2 spot this week is Baby Groot and the rest of the gang in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," bringing in almost $20 million.
And at No. 3, a movie that even The Rock couldn't save. R-rated comedy "Baywatch" belly-flopped in its debut, earning only about $18 million.
Thankfully the wrestler-turned-actor has at least one thing to smile about this weekend. His other film still in theaters — "The Fate of the Furious" — just became only the sixth movie in history to earn more than $1 billion overseas.
Next week, prepare to meet one badass Amazonian when "Wonder Woman" debuts.
