For Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales , it was smooth sailing to the top spot at the US box office, however the waters were choppier for the Dwayne Johnson comedy Baywatch.

In its 1st 3 days in theatres, according to Studio estimates on May 28th say the 5th installment of the Pirates of the Carribbean franchise commandeered 62.2 million dollars.

Over the 4-day holiday weekend, the Johnny Depp-starrer is projected to take in 76.6 million dollars. Meanwhile, the R-rated Baywatch, is sinking like a rock. Against a nearly 70 million price tag, the severely mocked update of the 1990s TV show earned only 18.1million dollars over the weekend.

Including May 25th earnings, the film is projected to collect 26.6 million dollars by the close of Memorial Day.
