Pirates did make up money from its worldwide figures bringing 208.4 million from outside the US. This was the worst box office take for a Memorial Day Weekend since it hit its lowest level since 1999 when the top movie was "Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace" was in its second week. Coming in second place was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which brought in $25 million. Many are waiting to see the highly anticipated Wonder Woman movie. It's official release date is Friday but hits theaters here in Hawaii starting tomorrow night.
