'Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen' Breaks Records

Jun 25th, 2009

We saw Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Tuesday night and while it was pretty damn good, we still think Megan Fox helped entice the male viewership. Every time Fox hit the screen, you would have it was Twilight for guy with all of the sighing and "Oh my God, she's so hott." Well regardless of what made this movie huge, it's surely making a killing at the box office.

Not only did the movie rack in $16 million for its midnight runs Tuesday night, but in its first full day of release in America, it's grossed over $55 million garnering the honor of the best opening day for a Wednesday release.

The opening day cash count in the U.S. includes the $16 million made in midnight runs. Again, it makes the flick the best run ever for a film released on a Wednesday and it' also the third-best of all time after The Dark Knight ($18.5 million) and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith ($16.9 million).

We doubt this sucker is going to top The Dark Knight, but it may give it a run for the top spot. We can only imagine how much this thing is going to make in its first full weekend. If only they included a topless Fox, you know this movie would have made even ten times its amount so far.
