Seven hundred million worldwide?
I said wow.
I remember when it was speculated that the movie wasn't going to make it to the top 5 because of Spider-man 3, Harry Potter 5, POTC 3, The Simpsons and Shrek 3.
Wow, highest non-sequel of the year by far as well, 300 didn't come close.
That is because 300 was an awful movie. I am very pleased Transformers did so well.
I saw a list like that last night, but the line-up was slightly different. TF was top ten though IIRC.
Will be interesting to see how it ranks in other lists as well
Transformers rule them all! "Nuf said!
Well, except Spider-Man 3 & Shrek 3. But, who cares? We can pretend!
It's funny that one of the worst movies of the year is number one money wise.
Nicely done for Transformers!
funnier is that the top 3 movies were among the crappiest stories ever written.
SM3: Sandman shoulda never been in it. Giving him a "story" just destroyed the character. Emo Parker sucked too. Best part was Harry vs Peter.
Shrek 3: Must we stretch angry ogre and stinky donkey jokes over 3 movies?
Transformers: Eye candy. Acting: bleh. story: meh. editing/camera angles: BARF!
Makes you wonder if the writer's strike will honestly affect movie production.
I can't think of a single movie this year that I left the theater thinking "Wow, that was a solid movie! It's a must-see!" Seriously... hopefully next year will be better. If Dark Knight is 1/2 as good as Batman Begins, we're in for at least one well made blockbuster film.
Could be the list of Total Worldwide Gross:
Transformers is number 5 in that one.
proves there are loads of tf nerds out there hurray !!
Agreed with everything said.
With all the negative whining I kept hearing about Spider-Man, I thought TF would top it on that list.
Funny to see wild hogs rounding out the list...
So, when is the movie going to fail and destroy Transformers forever?
Have I been lied to?
well I'm glad it did so well to warrant the sequels. Potter & 300 were also highlights of the year on my list.
Potter was a disappointment for me for the same reasons that Spider-Man 3 was: too much info in too short of time. A 700+ page novel squeezed into 2.5 hrs never turns out well. Luna Lovegood was exceptional, however. I also wasn't impressed with some of the changes that were changed for the heck of it, rather than changed for story reasons.
300 was just a string of M rated video game cutscenes taped together... there was nothing about the movie that honestly earned the hype. I'd rather play "God of War".
