    Okay, it tolk me awhile for this to sink in: Transformers was more epic and contained more FX than both Spider-man 3 and Pirates 3 yet it's budget was almost half their's (Sm3 $260/ POTC $300).

    I guess it pays to have most of your main characters be digital. And, unlike those two franchises, when/if the budget is raised for the Transformers sequels, it will clearly show on film and not line the pockets of the actors.

    $66 million is a heck of a lot of money for a movie that hasn't made it to the weekend yet. Unreal. I'm curious as to how the "experts" will rank this opening overall since it started on such an oddball day early in the week.

    Add another $36.3 million from the international box office of 10 countries. Makes the box office returns worldwide about $100 million. Did poor in Italy but broke records in Korea.

    In the sequel, the AllSpark fragment will invest life in an evil spaghetti making machine and that will shore-up the Itallian ticket sales ;) 

    For the encore, the Spaghetti Maker will be defeated by an Autobot Pizza Delivery Truck.

    The first combiners will be 1) Ham & Pineapple, 2) Sausage and X-tra Cheese, 3) Green Pepper & Tomato, 4) Pepperoni & Black Olives....etc.

    And the ravaged Megatron will rise out of the ocean as Megastroni!

    Die Hard has only earned 63.5 mil in EIGHT days?

    And Transformers has nearly topped that in only 2.5 days?


    LOL
