    'Pirates' chest fills higher 3rd weekend - Hollywood Reporter 7/24/06

    'Pirates' sails to third boxoffice win with $35 million


    By AP

    Johnny Depp and his pirate friends are keeping all the boxoffice treasure for themselves.

    Depp's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" remained the top movie for the third straight weekend, hauling in $35 million and lifting its total to $321.7 million after just 17 days, according to studio estimates Sunday.

    The Disney sequel passed the $305 million domestic total that its predecessor, 2003's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," rang up during its entire six-month run.

    "Dead Man's Chest" easily beat back a rush of new movies, which were led by Sony's family film "Monster House," a spooky animated tale that debuted at No. 2 with about $23 million. The movie follows the adventures of a group of children at a mysterious neighbor's scary home.

    Just a couple of basic questions, not meant to cast aspersions on the obviously overwhelming popularity of POTC.

    When it is said that a certain movie has broken this or that record for money taken in, in a certain period of time, can't increases in revenues be explained away to some extent by ever increasing movie ticket prices?

    How would one truly gauge the biggest box office champ of all time, adjusting for inflation and overall population growth?

    However many people aren't going ot movies like they use too. Some people don't add inflation to the older movies total.
