"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" Box-Office King! But Robots Could NOT Beat Batman! 


Heavy metal! Paramount is enjoying huge success with “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” The sequel has grossed an estimated $201.2 million since opening Wednesday. But, “The Dark Knight” still holds the crown with the best five-day haul ever, grossing $203.8 million when it opened last summer.

Estimating its total since Friday, “Transformers 2” grossed $112 million for the weekend.

By the way, “Dark Knight” and “Transformers 2,” both sequels, are the only two titles to make a huge leap to the $200 million in just five days. Now, can you blame Hollywood for giving us sequels after sequels?

Another new film to open this weekend, “My Sister’s Keeper” only grossed $12 million but it’s still a respectable opening considering it’s counter-programming to the giant robots.

But “The Proposal,” previous weekend’s No. 1 film enjoyed better reception, selling $18.5 million box-office tickets falling to No. 2. So far, the Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds comedy has a total of $69 million in its first 10 days.

No. 3 is “The Hangover” with an estimated $17.2 million bringing its total to $183.2 million.

Meanwhile, Disney-Pixar’s “Up” came in at No. 4 with $13 million. The animated adventure beat “Star Trek” to become the highest grossing film of the year, taking in $250.2 million. “Star Trek” is the second best-selling film with a total of $246.2 million.
The best story of the weekend? “Away We Go,” in just 495 theaters, grossed $1.7 million for a total of $4.1 million.

Here’s the estimated Top 10 films at the box office for weekend of June 26th:
