As we reported earlier, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has been doing excellent box office receipts in the UK. Michael Bay's blog has now been updated with official numbers for not only the UK debut but the Japanese opening as well.

Transformers 2 opened spectacularly in their world debuts in the UK and Japan, grossing a total of $20 mil from 846 locations. The Michael Bay directed film was a clear #1 in both territories, with the UK’s opening total of $14.1 mil from 517 locations outperforming rival comic book sequel Spider-Man 2 by 18%, the original Transformers movie by 71% and coming within 3% of the Dark Knight weekend total. In Japan, the film’s gross of $5.8mn from 329 locations was 64% ahead of The Dark Knight, and only 13% behind Transformers which had the advantage of opening in summer school holidays.

The franchise’s eagerly awaited second instalment opens across most of the rest of the world next week on Wednesday June 24th.

RotF trashing the Dark Knight in Japan isn't really surprising, I hope it does the same here. Just to shut all the idiots up. And I wish Michael bay would come back with some F-U to McG.

Obviously Transformers are always going to be huge in Japan but I would think a movie like the Dark Knight would have played well there, also just based on some of the "programming" that comes out of Japan.

Either way, a good start for ROTF in both markets.

I suspect ROTF is heading for the billion dollar US mark. If they manage to keep pace or outpace The Dark Knight I will be stunned, simply because they had the added advertising for TDK of Heath Ledger's final performance, which was ENDLESSLY hyped by the media (TONS and TONS of free advertising for the movie). At the time I'm writing this I am 52 hours from seeing the movie for the first time and 70 hours from seeing it the second time..:-P I can't belive it's almost here finally...
