    'Pirates' opens big in Britain

    LONDON, July 8 (UPI) -- The "Pirates" sequel had a big opening in Britain, taking in 2.3 million pounds, or $4.3 million, on its first day.

    The take was the best ever for a Disney picture in the country.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" had an advance ticket sale of almost 1 million pounds, the BBC reported.

    The first movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," became a surprise hit and critical success in 2003, with Johnny Depp even getting an Academy Award nomination for best actor. The film went on to make more than $650 million.

    A third movie, "At World's End," is due out in 2007.
