I bet a co-worker $5 that Transformers will be the number #1 highest grossing movie worldwide this year. We're using this as the source to determine the highest grossing movie: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/yearly/chart/?view2=worldwide&yr=2007&p=.htm Statistically, I'm at a disadvantage, as there are about 6 or so movies that could take the #1 spot other than Transformers (Spiderman 3, Shrek 3, Pirates 3, Fantastic Four 2, Harry Potter whatever the hell number it is, and Simpsons). So far his main horse is Spiderman 3, but we think Shek 3 will overtake Spiderman based on the fact that Shrek 2 is #7 of all-time. My only good objectional arguements for Transformers being #1 is that Transformers is an original movie, non-sequal wise and concept wise, and that the worldwide audience types that would see this movie are pretty numerous (fan boys like us, the casual "oh yeah, I remember those" fans, kids of all ages, etc). Time will tell.
