    Wow....

    That's great.

    The article is like: "Viacom reported an 80% rise. Something. Something. 50% rise on tickets sales thank to Transformers. Paramount top studio thanks to Transformers. Increased DVD sales thanks to Transformers. Transformers. Transformers. Something."

    Conclusion: more money for the sequel! YAY!
