Ice Age 3 and Transformers 2 Fight to Be No. 1 at the Box Office


Both Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen had stellar holiday weekends at the box office, with Ice Age taking in a record amount internationally for an animated movie and Transformers becoming "the year's domestic B.O. champ." The dinosaurs just edged out the robots, however, as Ice Age took in an estimated $67.5 million over the five day holiday weekend and Transformers ended up with $65 million. At the end of the weekend, both movies claimed the same total for the normal three-day weekend take: $42.5 million. Still, Transformers is now officially the most profitable movie of 2009:

Revenge of the Fallen lit up the holiday box office frame by becoming the highest-grossing pic of the year, with a domestic cume of $293.5 million in its 12th day in release. The only film to have amassed a higher gross in such a short time is The Dark Knight.

Johnny Depp's gangster movie Public Enemies opened last Wednesday and brought in $41 million domestically over its first five days, landing in third place at the box office. The Proposal and The Hangover took fourth and fifth place respectively.

I saw Transformers this weekend, and I must say that I was not impressed at all. It took until the end of the movie for it to turn slightly interresting.

I saw Ice Age 3 on the 4th. I loved this one so much! After the 2nd Ice Age, I was disappointed that they decided to continue (since I found the 2nd one a bit boring) and I had low expectations for this. However, it was great. I refuse to see transformers. I hate Megan Fox with a passion, and it got terrible reviews. No way would I waste my time.
