"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" Now The Highest Grossing Film of All Time

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", Walt Disney's fourth installment of the Pirates series and its first in 3D raked a whopping $346.4 million in ticket sales from its first week in worldwide release and set a record as the biggest film debut ever outside North America.

"On Stranger Tides" dug up $90.1 million box-office sales from Friday through Sunday in the United States and Canada alone. Adding up an additional $256.3 million in overseas receipts, the latest "Pirates" adventure surpasses 2009's "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" as the highest-grossing international movie opening of all time, Disney said.

With the arrival of "On Stranger Tides," the entire franchise has now amassed over $3 billion in theatrical receipts collectively worldwide, Disney said.

The newest "Pirates" adventure pairs returning star Johnny Depp in his signaturerole as Captain Jack Sparrow with Oscar winner Penelope Cruz, a newcomer to thefranchise. The film also co-stars another Academy Award winner and "Pirates" veteran, Geoffrey Rush, along with Ian McShane making his first appearance as Blackbeard.
