Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) - Box Office Mojo Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) - Box Office Mojo Cume for DOTM - 1,123M Cume for ROTF - 836M So DOTM was "bigger", right? Hold on . . . DOTM US - 352M ROTF US - 402M Foreign grosses are AMAZINGLY different . . . DOTM - 771M ROTF - 434M Why the discrepancy, do you think? What about DOTM made it such a huge hit overseas in comparison to ROTF? If anything DOTM is more US-centric than ROTF, which went all over the map - China, France, the US, the Middle East, etc. With the exception of the scenes in Russia DOTM is entirely set within the United States save for a few blink-and-you-missed-it scenes showing the pillars in other countries.
