    $401 million in global gold for 'POTC: AWE'

    Added international booty did make for a nifty haul for Johnny Depp and company, as foreign grosses remain key for studio tentpoles. Over six days in release, "Pirates" global cume hit $401 million, which surpassed the $382 million that Spidey caught in his web over six days.

    The weekend tally for "Pirates" -- which at 4,362 sites saw the widest ever release at North American theaters -- shot up to $156 million, according to Disney estimates, with the inclusion of limited Thursday-night screenings, which added $14 million to the pic's war chest, and the Monday holiday take.

    Previous pic in the "Pirates" series, "Dead Man's Chest," amassed a three-day take of $135.6 million in its July bow last year.

    That's some big "booty"!

    Of course is anyone really that surprised? Of Course POTC would bring it in. And just for the record, I contributed to the $14 mill on Thursday night and worth every penny.

    'Pirates' is widest-ever release in Australia

    Pic opens on 606 screens Down Under

    SYDNEY -- "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" released on 606 screens Thursday has become the widest-ever release Down Under, 46 screens ahead of previous record-holder, Sony's "The Da Vinci Code" which opened May 2006 on 560 screens.

    The wide roll-out generated a A$20,000 ($16,400) per-screen average and $9.8 million haul, the highest "Pirates" opening in Oz but not enough to nab "World's End" a spot among the top-five opening weekends Down Under.

    Pic comes in at six, behind "The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers," "Star Wars Episode III," "Shrek 2," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
