Transformers Dark of the Moon continues to be a box office juggernaut! According to Box Office Mojo the film earned an additional $47 million and fended off Horrible Bosses and Zookeeper to retain it's number one position over it's second weekend. Not only that, the film managed to edge out The Hangover Part II as the top grossing film of 2011. So far Transformers Dark of the Moon has earned $261 million domestically and $384 million in foreign markets for a total of $645 million worldwide. Very impressive considering the film has only been at theaters for twelve days!

I can easily say I did NOT expect almost another hundred million from Transformers this weekend. 30-40 million maybe, but good grief! And the movie still hasn't opened in China and Japan where it will easily pull in another couple hundred mill. I have to say, $1 billion is not out of reach at all...

DAYUM DOTM! I hope it's the highest grossing movie of the year, please let it be! And Bay still owes me my 2500.

Im all up for mindless entertainment every now and then but you can still have that with a good story line and not ruining what use to be a great franchise.

Yeah! Stupid people that can't tell that Transformers is being RUINED right in front of them! Hmmph! How corrupted the fans have become...we need a boycott!

And hatred of Twilight.

Fair enough. I like this idea.

I am very happy to see these money figures. Keep these ticket sales coming! :APPLAUSE:

Oh, and Twilight sucks. Horribly. I wish it would just vanish like the typical American Idol winner.

We need to take on Harry Potter next week. It'd be awesome if all of the Transformers fansites could organize a "go see Transformers 3 next weekend" instead of Harry Potter.

There's no "probably" about it. Even though I'm not a Harry Potter fan, that series is an unstoppable juggernaut. We're talking about one of the most popular movie franchises of all time, and it's no secret more people always check out the finale to a series whether it be in theaters, on TV etc....

What's really important here is that this guarantees us even more Transformers movies, (not that we didn't know that already). :D

I could go on, but, well ... I think I made my point.

Take comfort in the knowledge that DOTM will kick the arse of Twilight. :P
