Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen grossed a huge $162m in the international marketplace over the weekend. This was the fourth highest international weekend gross of all time.After opening to an astounding $60.6 million on Wednesday, the PG-13 rated robot mash-up has grossed an estimated $201 million over its first five days, second only to The Dark Knight's 5-day opening of $203 million.
Its Friday-Sunday total reached $112 million, the best three-day opening this summer. That's the second-best five day opening ever, just after THE DARK KNIGHT (which made $203.8 million last year).
In the list of the biggest international weekend takes ever Revenge comes in after the opening weekends of Spider-Man 3, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and ahead of the opening weekend of The Da Vinci Code.
Two years ago, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opened on a Wednesday, and by the end of the weekend it had grossed $139.7 million. Transformers 2 is guaranteed to blow by that record...and go way beyond.
