Friday Box Office – TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON Earns Another $32 Million For New Domestic Total of $97 Million

by     Posted 2 years, 288 days ago


Friday is premiere day at the box office, a chance to see how major movies open and to gauge how they might perform over their initial three-day weekends.  Trouble is, the movies that opened this Friday are the ones that nobody cares about.  Larry Crowne, the romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, began with an inauspicious bow of $4 million from 2,972 locations.  That portends a 3-day take of just $15 million.  Fox’s Monte Carlo placed fifth with a debut of $3.1 million from its 2,473 venues.  But let’s get to the Bots.  Friday marked day four of Transformers 3’s super-extended, six day holiday weekend (seven, if you throw in Monday).  The sequel took in an estimated $32 million from 4,013 locations for a current domestic total just shy of $100 million.  Clearly, that is a huge number by 2011 standards.  It is only diminished when Transformers 2’s record-breaking 2009 debut (without the latest film’s higher 3D prices) is taken into account.  But, throw in international grosses and Dark of the Moon is still the cash cow we all knew it would it would be. Details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 Transformers 3 $32,000,000 $97
2 Cars 2 $7,670,000 $98.5
3 Bad Teacher $4,500,000 $49.9
4 Larry Crowne $4,000,000 $4
5 Monte Carlo $3,125,000 $3.1

    And after just watchin Dark Of The Moon all I can say is YAAAAWN! If you’ve seen one and 2( as bad as 2 was) you’ve already seen D.O.T.M. No need to waste your money

    DOTM is streets ahead of ROTF. See it in a packed theater in 3D and have a blast.

    • joe

      Streets ahead is not a real phrase! :P

  • Jon

    It’s tough to believe but 3D makes Michael Bay a better director.

    The plot (?) and characters suck, but the action on display is unparalleled.

  • Old Soldier

    This CAN’T be as bad as no.2. Megan Fox and the “Racist Twins” aren’t in it.
    I’m sorry, Mike says I have no more credibility. Tell ‘em Mike… Mike? Oops, he must still be in the basement at the pawnshop watching Pearl Harbor.

    Dark side of a crap.

    • Michael

      Thank goodness it doesn’t come with “Smell-o-Vision.”

  • JD

    Can someone that “hated” this movie or thought it was a piece of crap please give me a list of reasons why? I really enjoyed it

  • Michael

    I’m most interested in seeing how far Green Lantern falls this weekend.

  • Migz13

    Aish… just saw this film last night. Damn, I have no idea why people are saying this is BETTER than the first 2. It’s such an effing mess!
    Granted the special effects /cgi are mind blowing… but damn, almost everything else is either incoherent or in pieces. Don’t even get me started on those LAME death scenes! The Decepticons get f@#$% up!

  • shaunx

    common, u guys know Micheal why so many complaints ?

  • Reggie

    It would appear that not only is this movie critic proof but it’s also hater proof as well. Hmmm…go figure.
