“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” continued its box-office rampage yesterday, bringing in a total of $60.6 million on its opening day – a domestic record for a Wednesday. The total was also big enough to give the sequel the second biggest opening day of all-time, right after the $67.2 million earned by “The Dark Knight” last July. As we previously reported, the record for the biggest Wednesday was pretty much in the bag thanks to the $16 million garnered from “Transformers” midnight runs. “Revenge of the Fallen” easily eclipsed the overall Wednesday record that “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” held for the past two years with $44.2 million. This opening figure makes the projected five-day take for “Revenge of the Fallen” well above its predecessor’s $155.4 million, but who knows? “My Sister’s Keeper” could surge at the last minute!
