Pirates Prompts Party at Our House

The Kaiser worked very hard on this film. And I am damn proud. DAMN proud.
Also looking forward to adding Johnny Depp the framed movie posters in our office. One for every film my man has a worked on.

That wheel/mill/fight shot??? All Kaiser baby. Didn’t even know some of that was digital, did ya’???

Per AP via CNN:

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Johnny Depp’s boozy, woozy buccaneer Jack Sparrow has plundered the box office, with “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” taking in a record $132 million in its first three days, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Disney’s swashbuckling sequel sailed past the previous all-time best debut, 2002’s “Spider-Man,” which took in $114.8 million in its first weekend.

“Dead Man’s Chest” also did nearly three times the business of its predecessor, “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” which took in $46.6 million over opening weekend in 2003.

The sequel surpassed that total in its first day alone, taking in $55.5 million Friday to beat the previous single-day record of $50 million, set last year by “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith.” With $44.7 million on Saturday, “Dead Man’s Chest” also became the first movie to top $100 million in just two days.


  1. Muy coolio! Congrats to Mr. Kaiser. I can’t wait to see this movie. Probably go tomorrow or Tuesday. Thursday I fly out to CA! Woo hoo!

  2. I’m guessing the biggest single weekend at the box office in movie history also means I owe him a blow job.

  3. As I said, we were damn impressed with the film, and the effects were seamless. We cheered when we saw the Kaiser’s name in the credits.

    Will his company be working on Pirates 3? I know they’ve finished about half of the filming and they’re shooting for a Memorial Day 2007 release.

  4. I have yet to see it, but I know it’s amazing. Yay Kaiser! I will actually sit through the credits so I can wait for his name so that I can poke the person next to me and say, “I know his wife”. Ok, I haven’t actually met you, but I know enough about your sex life to constitute saying that!

    And yes, I think a blow job is in order.

  5. I’m begging the GBJ King to take me to the movie, but he said he’s not into BJ’s in theatres. *L*

    Yay Kaiser! That’s such a great accomplisment. I’m so proud. It’s as if we’re family. I’m going to tell all my friends to see this movie, too!

    I’m just going for Orlando. Oh yeah…and to see your name in credits!

  6. What doesn’t warrant a blow job at your house?

  7. I can’t believe you posted BEFORE giving the BLOWJOB.
    Good god woman. Get your priorities straight.

    We just added the Pirates of the Carribean Play Tent to our living room landscape. It’s a lovely pirate ship made for swashbuckling adventures.

    And you can give blowjobs in it, if you are so inclined.

  8. That is so awesome! I have to hurry up and see the first one so I can go see the 2nd one! I do think I may be the only person in the world who hasn’t seen the first. I suck monkey buttholes.

  9. We loved the movie and I reviewed it on my blog. I think that’s the first movie I’ve ever reviewed in my years of blogging, so you know I REALLY liked it.

    The wheel… it was hilarious! I didn’t know your husband’s real name to look in the credits. But mazel tov to him. Great job.

  10. The Kaiser is ‘da man’

    My wife and I saw that movie yesterday (sans kids – whoo hoo!) and loved it.

    The wife was laughing her ass off at the wheel scene. Wait til I tell her one of my ‘blogmigos’ is married to the CGI master who did it.

  11. I was watching the Early Show this morning and had heard about the outrageous opening weekend money! How much of a percentage of THAT does he get! j/k Wouldn’t that just be too cool, though?!

  12. Congrats on a smashing, rip-roaring success!

  13. Ooooooh… I am quite the Mr. Depp fan. Johnny Depp is my favorite actor. I think I would watch a 3 hour movie of Johnny Depp watching paint dry.

    Did the Kaiser ever get to meet Mr. Depp????

  14. Awesome props to the hubby, natch, but also…is it wrong that I feel, somehow, that this movie’s great opening weekend can be construed as a slap in the face to Tom Cruise? Because I’m gonna.

  15. That’s so awesome! Can’t wait to see it!!!

  16. We’re going to see it tonight. I will definitely wait to see the Kaiser’s name in the credits. Hooray for CGI! It’s so exciting to actually almost know someone who worked on something that’s doing so well.

  17. Hi! Just checking in! Newbie momblogger and I have seen your name around and about!
    Cool beans that you SO works in the movies!
    My hubby writes about movies for a living!
    My cousin does set design and props

    I could ramble on..but pretty much every friend I have is connected to Hollywood or Hollywood North!

    I am a SAHM too and yes clinging to the hip factor..and kidding myself.

    Will make sure to check in more…too many cool blogs out there to keep up with!

    Haven’t seen Pirates 2 yet…but loved the first one!
