Not many films have been able to hang on to the box office crown for long this Summer, but Transformers: Dark of the Moon is proving to be an exception. The Michael Bay sequel scored the top spot for the second weekend in a row, taking in $47 million this past weekend. New comedy Horrible Bosses settled for a distant second, taking in a healthy $28.1 million. Kevin James's box office magic seems to be dwindling, as Zookeeper opened in third with $21 million.
Cars 2 slipped to fourth with $15.2 million, while Bad Teacher hung on to the top five by earning $9 million. Though Transformers is the Summer's biggest success so far, next week's release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 should make for stiff competition.
