whatever happens

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest set records! Not that we're surprised. But it set a new record for the highest opening in box office history, $132 million, beating the previous record, for Spiderman, by a comfortable $17 million. Also, its first day, Friday, took in $55.5 million, the new record for a single day, beating Star Wars III-Revenge of the Sith by a very comfortable $5.5 million.

News services tend to chalk it up to it being "much-hyped". But we fans know better. Its popularity is due to the excellence of the first movie. We all want more! And from what I've heard from people who have seen the sequel, it will probably set more records on its own merit now.

Woot! I need to get me some Jack icons! Have you seen it yet? I haven't, but hope to sometime in the next couple of weeks, as soon as the theatre calms down a little.
I haven't seen it yet, for the same reason. Randi and I will be going next Sunday. WHEEE! Can not wait.
Danny and I are going to watch Pirates tomorrow morning, whilst all of the kids are away from the cinema and inside school. Eee! I'm so excited! I can't wait!
I've seen it. It's very good. :) Definitely worth seeing. The critics who gave it bad reviews just seem like people who don't like movies where a lot of things are happening. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :D
Don't get me wrong. I LOVED Pirates! But this review nearly made me pee in m y pants...

Watch it! (It's not a spoiler.)
