Robot flick "Transformers" has scooped up a total gross of $65.7 million since its July 2 preview screenings.

Smoothly garnering over $8 million in its Monday (July 2) preview screenings to then rake in $27.4 million in its first full day, Paramount/DreamWorks Pictures' robot movie "Transformers" seems unstoppable in drawing in more cash into its pocket as the flick successfully added another $29.1 million on the 4th of July holiday.

In total, the action-packed flick so far has collected an impressive tally of $65.7 million in just two and a half days, thereby surpassing other blockbusters like 1999's "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" and 2004's "The Passion of The Christ" to become the third-highest grossing movie on a Wednesday.

Directed by Michael Bay, "Transformers" is a live-action adaptation of the popular franchise and toy line of the same name which presents a story about the battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons on Earth. Bay recently admitted to Entertainment Weekly that he has sparked ideas for the sequel, saying there is "a lot of really cool, big robot stuff" he had in his head that the film's crew did not put into the picture.
