Apparently very few moviegoers, since Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made killer box office dollars since opening last Wednesday. $201.2 million, by studio estimates, which puts it behind only The Dark Knight for the biggest four- and five-day openings ever.
Box Office Mojo's estimates for the June 26-28, 2009 box office weekend top five:
Rank | Movie Title (Distributor)
Weekend Gross | Theaters | Total Gross | Week #
1. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Paramount (DreamWorks))
$112.0 million | 4,234 | $201.2 million | 1

Looking ahead, the big releases for the July 4 weekend: Public Enemies (Johnny Depp and Christian Bale), Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (which looks adorable) and I Hate Valentine's Day (or, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Part Deux, as I like to think of it).
What will you be seeing, besides fireworks, during the holiday weekend?
