The Transformers sequel is smashing box office records in America after taking in more than $60 million in its first day on release. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has been savaged by critics, but the bad press isn’t keeping film fans away from cinemas. In its first 24 hours, the film claimed the best Wednesday gross of all-time and second biggest single-day gross in U.S. box office history, $7 million shy of tying The Dark Knight’s overall single-day record, which was set last year. Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix previously held the best single day Wednesday total of $44.2 million. As previously reported by WENN, the film made $16 million from midnight screenings in America on Tuesday night, June 23rd, 2009.
I could easily rant on this for a few hours, but I will leave it to just one word: amazing.
