First, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen broke the Wednesday midnight showing record with $16 million. Now it broke the Wednesday opening day record with $60.6 million.
One wonders if it would have beaten The Dark Knight's opening day if it did a weekend opening instead of a Wednesday. Either way, Revenge of the Fallen is set to make a lot of money for Paramount and company.
The next goal for this juggernaut is to beat Spider-Man 2's $152.4 million it earned over 5 days when it opened on the same Wednesday back in 2004. Our money is on the autobots.
