In the least shocking news ever, Transformers: Dark of the Moon absolutely destroyed the weekend box office, making $97.4 million over the weekend and $162.1 million over it’s five days of release. It’s now the highest grossing Independence Day weeekend release of all time and the ninth highest five day opening of all time. In other record breaking news, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides crossed the $1 billion mark over the weekend, putting it in seventh place on the all time highest gross list, ahead of The Dark Knight and behind Alice in Wonderland. In a pretty distant second was last week’s number one, Cars 2, which made another $25 million but dropped 62% from last week. Bad Teacher dropped down to third with $14.1 million and the two other new releases of the weekend barely registered with Larry Crowne coming in at fourth place with $13 million and Monte Carlo came in at $7.6 million. The only other big movement was from Green Lantern, which plummeted from third to seventh.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
