‘Transformers 2’ $28 Million Thursday

UPDATE: Variety is reporting an official Thursday gross of $28.6 million and $89.3 million including Wednesday. $115 million is looking more likely over the weekend.

ORIGINAL POST:

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting an early estimate of $28 million for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on Thursday. Excluding opening days, that figure stands as the biggest Thursday on record. Even more impressive is that the 54% decline from Wednesday was better than Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix‘s 58% descent on its first Thursday. Order of the Phoenix was the previous record holder for the largest Wednesday opening before the Michael Bay directed film topped it.

After two days, Transformers 2 has captured nearly $89 million in just two days and is in position to take in an additional $110-115 million over the weekend. This is close enough to contend with The Dark Knight for the largest five-day start in history. The Dark Knight opened on a Friday last July and by the end of Tuesday, its fifth day, the comic book sequel racked up $203.8 million.
