Milestone for “On Stranger Tides”

Proving the entire world, not just Disney’s, is in love with The Prates of the Caribbean- “On Stranger Tides,” the fourth film starring Johnny Depp as pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, passed the $1 billion mark at the global box office Saturday, according to an estimate from Disney. Since its release in April, the movie has sold $1.01 billion in tickets worldwide, passing the big milestone this weekend in Japan. “Dead Man’s Chest,” collected $1.07 billion in 2006 making this the second Pirate’s movie to gross over $1 billion. “At World’s
End,” fell just short of the milestone, ending up with $963.4 million in 2007.

“On Stranger Tides” is only the eight film in history to hit $1 billion in ticket sales and the fourth Disney film to do so, joining  2010’s “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3.”
