In addition to its $152.5 million earnings from the first 6 1/2 days domestically, Michael Bay’s Transformers has also brought in $93.6 million in 23 other countries where the movie has opened since June 28. That brings the worldwide total to $246.1 million in just a little over a week. Not bad for a movie which reportedly cost $150 million to make (not counting advertising dollars)!
The robots’ box office steamrolling should continue for a couple more days until Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix hits conventional theaters and IMAX theaters starting at 12:01am on Wednesday.
