Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen remains king of the Wednesday opening as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince just fell short with a $58.4 million opening day compared to TF2's $62 million first day. This is despite a record breaking $22.2 million in midnight screenings that easily surpassed Revenge's $16 million and The Dark Knight's $18 million.
It seems that Transformers 2 $201 million five day opening may just hold up which would indicate that race for box office king for the year is going to much closer than expected. Overall the reviews for the film have been very good but this movie doesn't have as much effects or action as the previous films as it’s essentially a setup for the final two movies. Still worth seeing but not really full of moments that might lead to repeat business (to me anyway). Thanks to Darin for the link.
