Despite great reviews The Pirates! Band of Misfits had a disappointing weekend at the box office. While coming in a better than some expected 2nd place the film only earned $11.1 million according to Box Office Mojo. That tally is the worst ever opening for Aardman on this side of the pond. It’s not all bad news for the studio. Since opening over a month ago in some overseas markets the film had already made back its budget before opening here.
