There you have it! As we mentioned during the week, Transformers was and is a BIG hit at the big screen. Michael Bay must be a very happy man now!
The movie debuted with $67.6 million in ticket sales in its first weekend.
But don't forget that the movie opened with preview screenings on Monday night. The estimated grand total coming in at $152.5 million. Wow, that's big!
If these numbers actually hold when final numbers are released on Monday, that would give 'Transformers' the biggest first week revenues ever for a non-sequel, passing the $151.6 million of 2002's 'Spider-Man.'
