Box Office: $28.6M Thursday

Update: Final numbers are in and Thursday domestic total is $28.6M and international sales brought in another $20 million. Below total has been updated to reflect the final numbers.

Day two in theatres for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the domestic box office numbers continue to remain high with the movie taking in an estimated $27 million for Thursday according to Variety. Once you add this to Wednesday's $60.6 million the movie is at $87.6 million. Overseas, the movie is also doing well with a $59 million take in 58 territories for a Wednesday total of $119.6 so the worldwide total sits at $146.6 million.

Paramount probably hopes the movie will break The Dark Knight's five-day gross of $203.8 million, but may have to settle for passing Star Wars Episode III ($172.8M), Spider-Man 3 ($169.4M), or Spider-Man 2 ($152.4M). Thanks to Scalan15 for the heads-up. I was not able to find figures for overseas but there tends to be a lag on them for some reason.

  6. Reply to the 12:28PM comment, are you nuts? these numbers are amazing! Wednesday's numbers include the midnight showings, wait until you see Friday and Saturday's numbers, they will be back in the 50 million area

  7. ya'll can marvel at the first few days numbers, but this movie may very well stall after the weekend. You can argue that the critics comments don't mean anything, but they do have an effect on the numbers. Many people on this board can't don't understand that because they are uber-fanboys. The only thing that may keep this movie afloat is that there is no expected blockubuster until harry potter.

    I bet some of the critics will give negative comments on the new Harry Potter movie. And besides uber-fanboys,there are new people which are turning into TF fans after watching the movie.

  11. Look at it this way this is the first and possiably th last time in film history we get to see a truck fight a tank, fighter plane and a helicopter.

  12. Or this movie could do amazingly well. I think the second weekend will tell us all we need to know. The fact that a blockbuster not being released until Harry Potter is only a possibility. A lot of people on a lot of sites(not critics) actually love this movie. Proof 3000 of the 4000 people on this site said they loved it.
