Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush
The fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film sailed to the top of the weekend box office, Box Office Mojo reports.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides brought in some major booty — an estimated $90.1 million — to become the top opening of 2011. However, the debut was notably lower than that of the second ($135.6 million) and third ($114.7 million) films. The film, starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, fared much better on foreign waters with a total of $256.3 million, making it the highest-grossing launch ever overseas.
