The film has passed up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1‘s $954.5 million and should shortly surpass Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End‘s $963.4 million to move up to No. 9.
“On Stranger Tides” has reached this point with 76.8% of ticket sales coming from international territories. Domestically, the Rob Marshall-directed adventure has reached $221.5 million, but overseas the film has collected an impressive $735.2 million.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is also in the top 10 at No. 4 with $1.07 billion, while Johnny Depp now has four movies in the top 10, including Alice in Wonderland‘s $1.02 billion.
