Pirates Of The Caribbean Sinks Baywatch

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — The sequel "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" took the top spot in weekend box office receipts, besting the Dwayne Johnson comedy "Baywatch."

Now on its 5th installment, Pirates generated 62.2 million in its first three days in theater in North America and is projected to take in over $76.6 million across the full holiday weekend. It was the second lowest opening for the franchise, which cost a reported $230 million to produce, and while that might seem like a slow start for a major franchise opening, it did much better internationally, taking in $208.4 million.

At the same time, "Baywatch" a comedy revival of the classic 80s syndicated television show, landed with a bit of a thud, generating just $18m domestically after setting the Paramount back a reported $208.4 million to produce.
