Transformers Clean Up in First Full Day of Release

To absolutely no one’s surprise, especially geeks like myself, The Bay’s “Transformers” cleaned up in its first full day of release (Tuesday) with an estimated $27.4 million in box office receipts. Add in the $8.8 million from late-night/midnight screenings on Monday, and “Transformers” has raked in over $35 million in just a day and change. Which basically means that everyone who debuted their movies before or after “Transformers” (like “Live Free or Die Hard”, which was originally supposed to show up July 4th), was smart to do so. This is a juggernaut, folks, and no one’s is gonna stop it. Why? BIG F**KIN’ ROBOTS. That’s why.
