Transformers Has a Massive Opening Weekend

Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earned a five-day opening gross of $201.2 million, easily taking the top spot at the weekend's box office. The sequel nearly beat the best five-day opening of all time, The Dark Knight, which earned $203.8 million. Second place went to The Proposal, followed by The Hangover in the third spot.

Pixar's Up came in at No. 4 and became the year's highest grossing movie. Finally, My Sister's Keeper starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin had a modest debut, earned about $12 million and coming in at No. 5.

comparing the five-day between dark knight and transformers 2 isn't a very good way to look at it. the dark knight opened on a friday (fri-tue) and transformers 2 opened on a wednesday, which inflates its numbers more because there are more movie-going days (wed-sun). a better comparison will be the nine-day, which the dark knight will win easily simply because it was a better film.

ilanac13, I totally agree, it was a LONG movie. In the end, I wanted to say "Michael Bay, can you add any more explosions???"

i'm not at all surprised that the movie did so well - although i have to say that i went to see it and it was PAINFUL. they could have cut a good hour out of the movie and you wouldn't have missed A THING.
