"Pirates" Steal More Box Office Booty

"Pirates" is the headline-producing hit that keeps on giving. If you can't come up with an easy headline ("Pirates" Box Office Foes Walk The Plank" or "Johnny Depp Swish and Swashbuckles His Way Through Hit" or simply "Aaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh!" then you shouldn't be writing headlines. Sorry reel fanatic, your prediction "Monster House" would unseat "Pirates" didn't pan out. Maybe you should have seen "Monster" instead of "Clerks II." But Depp's reign will surely end this weekend via "Miami Vice" and even perhaps the lame looking "Ant Bully." Here's the Top 10 per Box Office Prophets:

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest -- $35 mil ($321.7 mil total)
2. Monster House -- $23 mil
3. Lady In The Water -- $18.2 mil
4. You, Me and Dupree -- $12.8 mil ($45.3 mil total)
5. Little Man -- $11 mil ($40.6 mil total)
6. Clerks II -- $9.6 mil
7. My Super Ex-Girlfriend -- $8.7 mil
8. Superman Returns -- $7.5 mil ($178.4 mil total)
9. The Devil Wears Prada -- $7.4 mil ($97.6 mil total)
10. Cars -- $4.9 mil ($229.4 mil total)
