North America's interest in the Pirates franchise is starting to sag more than Kim Kardashian 's butt in ten years. The thing is, the rest of the world loves these movies so they are going to keep churning them out and are willing to pay Johnny Depp a fortune to do so. Most people would have quit the franchise by now, but Johnny is perfectly happy getting that $50M a movie and is expected to sign on to the next one and will earn even more. The latest movie is actually the third highest grossing movie of all time even though it was the worst performing one in North America. Only Avatar and Titanic have beat it. Are you getting tired of them yet?
