I was right. Not too much to gloat about though because no one needs to be a psychic to know that â€œTransformers: Revenge of the Fallenâ€ would be a huge box office hit. Transformers 2 might be on its second weekend but it managed to hold on to the number one spot at the North American box office. It was a close call between â€œTransformersâ€ and â€œIce Age: Dawn of the Dinosaursâ€ with figures pointing to a tie at first with both Paramount Pictures and Century Fox studios giving out estimates of $42.5 million as the moviesâ€™ earnings. After the final count though â€œTransformersâ€ came out on top with $42.3 million and â€œIce Ageâ€ $41.7 million, a mere $600K difference in revenues. Transformers so far has had a good run with total sales of $293.4 million just in North America and a total of $593.8 million worldwide sales. We can expect the movie to continue racking up ticket sales at a pretty good pace since itâ€™s still just on its twelfth day. With the good turn out you can be sure cinemas worldwide will continue playing it for several weeks more.
