Fifth Place Pirates

Not the ball club, mates and comrades. The movie.

The weekend derby saw box-office holdovers at the head of the pack, and new-comers -- including Aardman's new entry -- back several lengths ...

The speculation that Pirates would hit $15 million opening weekend doesn't appear to be panning out.

Add On: Box Office Mojo has Pirates coming in #2 for the weekend, but loser to the Nikkster's earlier totals -- $11.4 million. (Mojo compares Pirates to other stop motion epics here.)
