Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen brings in $55 million on opening day

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

After months and months of waiting, the sequel for Transformers is finally here. We were one of the many geeks to go watch Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning, where it made $16 million on the midnight showings alone.

The movie ended up grossing more than $55 million, scoring the best opening ever for a Wednesday release at the box office. The previous record was held by “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” which made $44.2 million in its opening-day.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is playing in more than 4,200 theaters in the United States.

Our two cents: We (I’m speaking for the rest of the egmCarTech team as well)  liked the first one better and if you’re a true Transformers fan (meaning it’s all about Autobots vs. Decepticons) you’ll love the second one as well. If you’re looking to watch a movie with an outstanding story line and amazing acting – don’t hold your breath. Nonetheless, it’s the heart-pumping action that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start-to-finish.

If you’ve seen it – we’d love to hear what you thought about the sequel. Let us know in the comments section after the jump.
