Earlier Seibertron.com reported that Transformers Revenge of the Fallen hit $400 Million USD domestically, making it the top grossing film of the summer. More news reports that the massive gross earnings taken by the hit sequel are more significant than we think.

According to a report posted on Variety, Paramount Studios claimed the second highest grossing film producer, raking in $884 Million USD for the summer of 2009 with ROTF pulling in a whopping 45% alone!

Other films such as the Star Trek revamp and GI Joe: Rise of Cobra assisted in the overall earnings, but it's plain to see the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen was much bigger than anyone anticipated.

One can only imagine the budget that will be awarded the third installment of the movieverse franchise with this new revelation.

In a report from Pawtucket, R.I., home of Hasbro, Inc., its stated that the recently announced Disney purchase of Marvel won't have any negative affects on the Hasbro/ Discovery Communications Joint Venture.

According to the article, "Hasbro landed a five-year licensing agreement in 2006 with Marvel that allows the nation’s number-two toymaker to sell Marvel-based puzzles, games and action figures. Marvel will receive $205 million in royalty and service-fee payments from Hasbro."

Hasbro spokesman Wayne Charness stated that licensed Marvel characters are not the things that the company could use to make new shows out of. "They certainly are only one of the many potential sources for TV content,” Charness said.

Analyst suspect that the new Joint Venture may bring forth such new renditions of fan favorites such as GI Joe, My Little Pony and other cartoon franchises.

Hasbro has been showing much success in the entertainment division with the two whopping success films for the Transformers franchise and GI Joe: Rise of Cobra, which is doing so well in theatres that the sequel has been approved with the same cast.

In a recent article posted on arstechnica.com, Matthew Lasar reported that the Federal Communications Commission has submitted an inquiry to the public asking for feedback on how well parental blocking devices for television are working, sighting the Transformers films advertisements as a possible violation of said devices.

In a nutshell, the FCC is looking to enforce the rule that MPAA films rated PG-13 or above are not marketed towards children under 13 years of age, thanks to a response given by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood gave based on the inquiry "[to] the extent to which inappropriate commercials [are] aired in programming viewed by children and on possible solutions to this problem". In the report submitted by the FCC, both Transformers and Transformers Revenge of the Fallen were cited as examples on how such parental blocking devices such as the "V-Chip" weren't regulating such content and allowing children to view said commercials.

Congress has asked the FCC to supply them with a compendium of every content filtering device available. The FCC has until the end of this week, August 29th 2009, to supply the report.

Seibertron.com member Sky Glory of Iacon has posted a link to a response by acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert which is partially a defense, but more of an explanation as to why he reviewed Transformers Revenge of the Fallen the way that he did.

Still in heated debate as to whether or not the sequel was the box office smash its shown to be, he raises some interesting points on how many of Transformer fandom have reacted to his review of the film, and shows how even though the sales receipts show it was a success that not as many fans held onto that opinion.

Now about those who sincerely believe "Transformers" is a good, even a great, film. I sincerely believe they are wrong. I don't consider them stupid--at least, not (most of) the ones who write to me. Some of the posters at certain popular web forums are nine blooms short of a bouquet. But on the other hand look at the spirited discussions on the movie forums of the all-Transformers-all-the time seibertron.com, where a Paramount exit poll showing "90% of those polled thought the second film was as good or better than the first one" has been received with ridicule. Significantly, those are moderated forums.

With any massive production, like Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, there are bound to be some errors in the final product. According to MovieMistakes.com there are over 40, making it the most mistake ridden movie of 2009.

With the film Angels & Demons pulling a distant second with 19 errors, its hard to justify the large amount of movie mishaps, but some of these seem to be more of personal point of view issue than an actual mistake.

With some of them humorous and others just down right silly, the list continues to grow so check it out by clicking here.

In a report posted on the official US Air Force Air Education and Training Command webpage, we get a look at how the everyday lives and support that the military gave for the filming of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen helped add to the realism of the film.

The US Air Force members of Altus Airbase started off as consultants for the film, but soon became more than that:

"Initially we were just there to kind of babysit the airplanes but then, before you know it, the director started getting us involved in some of the scenes," said Capt. Judd Baker, 58th Airlift Squadron, one of the C-17 Globemaster III aircraft commanders during filming at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., and Holloman Air Force Base, N.M..



"Every time they would have something going on with the C-17s, it was, 'Would this be real? Would this be how you would do it? Is this how you say that or was this what you call that?,'" Captain Baker said. "And whatever we said, it was, 'Yep, change that in the script. That's what we'll say.'"

In a report at Breitbart.com, it is stated that Transformers Revenge of the Fallen may be the worst reviewed movie ever to possibly reach $400 million in sales domestically.

It's been common knowledge that movie critics and mainstream movie goers don't always agree, but this difference could mark one of the biggest in movie history.

Critics "forget what the goal of the movie was. The goal of the movie is to entertain and have fun," said Rob Moore, vice chairman of Paramount, which is distributing "Transformers" for DreamWorks. "What the audience tells us is, `We couldn't be more entertained and having more fun.' They kind of roll their eyes at the critics and say, `You have no idea what you're talking about.'"

Love it or hate, Revenge of the Fallen is a box office smash and the numbers don't lie. Fans can look forward to the same format of a movie for the third installation of the Transformers Movieverse saga.

In a report done by Variety's Pamela McClintock, the one day earnings for Transformers Revenge of the Fallen is revealed.

Factoring the $16 million that the hit sequel earned domestically, making it the largest Wednesday Midnight release ever, we find that the total one day earnings for the film put it at $60.6 million dollars, surpassing the previous record holder Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which earned $44.2 million on a Wednesday.

Revenge of the Fallen also earned an IMAX showing record of $1 milllion being shown on 169 screens.

Panela McClintock also stated that Transformers 2, playing in more than 4,200 runs, has a strong shot at eclipsing the $152.4 million earned by “Spider-Man 2” in its first five days. That film opened on the same Wednesday in 2004.
