Movie Designed to Make Loads of Money Makes Loads of Money; TRANSFORMERS 3 Makes $37 Million on Opening Day

     June 30, 2011


I usually don’t cover box office stuff because I don’t really care.  However since, Paramount basically decided to give Transformers: Dark of the Moon a six-day opening weekend by releasing the movie at 9pm Tuesday night, the box office gross will be kind of ridiculous.  However, for its opening day, the new film opened with $37 million, which is far short of the $62 million Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made on its opening Wednesday, but more than the $27.9 million the first Transformers grossed.  Combined with its Tuesday night opening, Dark of the Moon has already grossed $42.5 million thus far and we haven’t truly reached the July 4th weekend yet.  Expect the final weekend tally to be almost as silly as the movie itself.

    Goldberg, you don’t learn, do you?

    Your “jokes” are lame, not funny, and you clearly write about stuff you don’t even care. Frosty, do the fans a favor and you write these things. Let this guy go.

    And Goldie-berg, just like you don’t care about box office, people don’t care about critics. So yeah, there’s a good balance. It’s pretty obvious that you’re angry as hell because Transformers 3 is making a lot of money.

    So do yourself a favor and go back “covering” the indie flicks. You know very well that people around here hate your guts, because of your snobbish articles, so the only thing you can do is this: stick to indies, and stay away from mainstream Hollywood.

    You know it’s funny to me that so many people are up in arms about this flick. I saw it yesterday and even though it is problematic I mostly enjoyed it for what it was an action heavy popcorn flick which is exactly what it purported itself to be. Could it have been done better? Yes. Could it have been done more efficiently? Of course. I don’t understand why every film no matter what genre is always given the “Citizen Kane” review. It’s like going to McDonald’s and getting angry that they don’t serve Merlot. Given the source material and the director’s filmography what else did you expect? I too appreciate well crafted cinema but there are times when I want to keep it light and enjoy the ride. From the looks of it so do alot of people out there. Jeez calm down people if this is’nt your thing just don’t go see it. There are other options available.
