‘Pirates’ tops at Japanese box office

Disney film at No. 1 for year-end tally

TOKYO — “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” earned ¥10.9 billion ($96.5 million) to top the Japanese foreign box office for 2007,  according to figures compiled by Bunka Tsushin magazine.

Of the top 10 foreign pics at the Japanese B.O. this year, the top three — “Pirates,” “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” ($84 million) and “Spider-Man 3” ($63 million) — were all franchise installments, as were “Die Hard 4.0” ($34.5 million), “Ocean’s Thirteen” ($28.3 million) and “Resident Evil: Extinction” ($26.5 million).

Warner released three of the top 10, while Disney, Sony and Fox accounted for two each and UIP, one.
