The second Pirates of the Caribbean movie opened yesterday to a record toll of $55 million. No movie has made more money in a single day than that.
Of course, you never hear about what the figure would be if justified for inflation. I paid $8.50 for a single ticket last weekend. It's a lot easier to get to $55 million at $8.50 a pop than it would be at $3.50 a pop twenty years ago.
And I'm not sure I understand the fascination with Pirates of the Caribbean.
