‘Pirates’ finds B.O. gold overseas

Disney pic has grossed $742.9 million at the international box office

Sailing into its sixth weekend at the international box office, Disney’s ”Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” has amassed $742.9 million, making it the third-highest grossing film ever overseas.

”Stranger Tides,” which has collected $224.4 million domestically, also stands as the ninth biggest release of all time at the global B.O., with a worldwide tally at $967.3 million. That’s just behind Warner Bros.’ ”Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which cumed $974.7 million globally in 2001.

Overseas, it’s highly unlikely that ”Stranger Tides” will have enough wind to beat the top two players, ”Avatar” and ”Titanic;” the former collected $2.02 billion internationally, while ”Titanic” grossed $1.24 billion in overseas grosses.

Still, Disney’s fourth ”Pirates” installment proved the colossal popularity of the franchise among international audiences (that’s even during a packed summer sked).

”Stranger Tides” is expected to cross $1 billion in worldwide B.O. receipts over the coming weeks.
