According to the AP, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will crack $200 million in ticket sales in just 5 days. Paramount reports Transformers 2 with an estimated $112 million weekend, and $201.2 million since the Wednesday opening.
The film shows itself to be virtually critic-proof, as the huge opening is despite a 20 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Transformers 3 is already set for a July 1, 2011 opening, according to Variety, though it’s not yet clear whether director Michael Bay will return.
