Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens in theaters today, but it already has been setting records with its midnight showings early this morning.
The sequel to the original blockbuster earned an estimate $16 million, making it the second highest gross midnight run after The Dark Knight's $18.5 million.
So why is this a record? The Dark Knight had the advantage of opening on a Friday. Transformers 2 is the highest grossing midnight run for any Wednesday midnight showing.
Don't be so angry. Second place is still pretty impressive!
