Transformers PosterAs predicted, Transformers kicked more ass at the box office this weekend, with a Sunday morning estimate of $67.6 million. This brings the giant robot film to a grand total of $152.5 million in just 6.1 days of release (the film opening on Monday night at 8:00pm). WOW. Our friend Steve Mason at Fantasy Moguls has a good round-up of what Michael Bay’s Transformers has accomplished thus far:

  • All-time biggest Tuesday ($27.85M)
  • All-time best opening 6 days of release for a non-sequel [Monday thru Sunday] ($152.5M)
  • 2nd-best opening 4 days of release for a non-sequel [Tuesday thru Friday] ($98.6M)
  • 2nd-best opening 5 days of release for a non-sequel [Tuesday thru Saturday] ($124.5M)
  • 2nd-best opening 6 days of release for a non-sequel [Tuesday thru Sunday] ($143.7M)
  • 3rd-best Wednesday ($29.07M)
  • 4th-best opening 3 days of release for a non-sequel [Tuesday thru Thursday] ($76.1M)
  • 5th-best Thursday ($19.17M)
  • 6th-best opening 6 days of release [Tuesday thru Sunday] ($143.7M)
  • 6th-best opening 7 days of release [Monday thru Sunday] ($152.5M)
  • 9th-best opening 5 days of release [Tuesday thru Saturday] ($124.5M)
  • 12th-best opening 4 days of release [Tuesday thru Friday] ($98.6M)
  • 16th-best opening 3 days of release [Tuesday thru Thursday] ($76.1M)

Michael Bay should be proud. Also, Ratatouille earned over $29 million this weekend, brining the computer animated feature’s grand total to $109.5 million. Not bad, but also not great for a Pixar movie. I’m thinking that most of the people over at Disney must be relieved, because they expected less. Live Free or Die Hard brought in $17.4 million for a $84 million cume. Also of note: Michael Moore’s Sicko made $3.6 million, brining the film’s total to $11.5 million. It will be interesting to see how far this film can go as it continues to expand.
