Boom Goes The Dynamite: Transformers 2 Tops the Box Office for 2nd Week

Posted on Jul 6, 2009

Updated studio estimates Monday made it pretty clear who was No. 1 in the photo-finish race for boxoffice supremacy this weekend, with Paramount’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” topping the domestic pack with $42.4 million.

Final official data from Nielsen EDI will be released midday Monday. But morning updates from various studios consistently showed Fox’s “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” in second place with less than $42 million in Friday-Sunday boxoffice. On Sunday, both Par and Fox estimated their pics had taken in a chart-topping $42.5 million in boxoffice over the three-day Fourth of July frame.

Sunday estimates showed the “Transformers” sequel toting a $293.5 million cume for its first 12 days in domestic release.
