Transformers Crushes Competition with $67 Million

No Comments

Another week, another group of feckless movies gets crushed under the heels of the mighty transformin’ robots. Industry estimates has Michael Bay’s “Transformers” (read our review here) raking in $67 million over the weekend, for a total take (so far) of $152.6 million. That was enough to make “Transformers” the top-grossing, non-sequel film of all time in its first seven days, beating out previous record holder “Spider-Man”. “Ratatouille”, about a cooking French rat, came in second with $27 million, while Bruce Willis’ “Live Free or Die Hard” continues an impressive streak with $17.4.

If all goes well, “Transformers” SHOULD break $200 by Tuesday, marking its first full 7-days at the box office. The movie had already muscled up $84 million by last Thursday, so another $40 or so million in two days won’t be much of a challenge.

And what about the Mandy Moore-Robin Williams comedy “License to Wed”? Well, let’s not talk about it. It’s just embarrassing — the box office returns AND the movie.
