Friday Box Office – TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON Primed for Second Weekend on Top

     July 9, 2011

In 2009, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen barely eked out a victory in its second weekend at the domestic box office.  Two years later, its follow-up looks much better situated.  On Friday Transformers: Dark of the Moon took in an estimated $15 million, bringing its domestic total up to $228.9 million in ten days.  Though it still trails the $269 million Fallen had earned at its ten day point here in the US, worldwide Tf3 passed the $500 million mark on Thursday and should pass $600 million sometime today.  In second place, Warner Brothers’ Horrible Bosses brought in an estimated $9.9 million from 3,062 locations for what looks like a weekend total of $26 million.  Meanwhile, Sony’s Zookeeper looks like 2011’s latest disappointment with a first day estimate of $7.4 million and a weekend projection of just $20 million.  Details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 Transformers 3 $15,000,000 $228.9
2 Horrible Bosses $9,920,000 $9.9
3 Zookeeper $7,400,000 $7.4
4 Cars 2 $4,825,000 $138.4
