Summer of 2009 Sets Box Office Record! The Highest Grossing Summer...Ever! 


The box office total of summer 2009 shattered previous record holder -- the $4.16 billion total for summer 2007.

The total for summer 2009 has reached $4.17 billion, and it's not even Labor Day weekend yet!

With another $100 million or so for this coming Labor Day weekend, industry experts are predicting that summer of 2009 would beat 2007 summer by about 3%.

The top 3 films that contributed to this record-shattering summer are: "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" with $399.4 million; "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" with $294.3 million; and "Up" with $289.6 million.

Here's the complete Top 10 list of SUMMER 2009'S BOX OFFICE CHAMPIONS:

1. "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" -- $339.4 million

2. "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" -- $294.3 million
3. "Up" -- $289.6 million
4. "The Hangover" -- $270.2 million (the highest-grossing R-rated comedy!)
5. "Star Trek" -- $256.7 million
6. "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" -- $193.3 million
7. "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" -- $179 million
8. "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" -- $176.5 million
9. "The Proposal" -- $160.2 million (the highest-grossing summer romantic comedy of all time!)
10. "Angels and Demons" -- $133.4 million *

* Paramount's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" will likely overtake "Angels and Demons" by Labor Day weekend. Last weekend's box office total for "G.I. Joe" was already $132.2 million.
