DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures' "Transformers" replaces former blockbuster movies in being the holder of some gross records, mostly for those of non-sequel.


As mighty as the robot aliens it presents, "Transformers" really proves to be one of the top movies DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures ever produce for it easily creates a number of new gross records, most of them being for non-sequel features.

For the first full day of release record, the sci-fi actioner satisfyingly opened on Tuesday, July 3 to rake in $27.8 million and beat out last year's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" before outstripping 2004's "Spider-Man 2" for the July 4th holiday record with $29.073 million.

The latter number also led the flick to become the holder of Top daily gross in July and Top Wednesday gross of all time for a non-sequel records, replacing 2001's "Planet of the Apes" and 2004's "The Passion of The Christ" respectively, apart from the $19.177 million it made in setting a new one for Top Thursday gross for a non-sequel previously created by 1996's "Independence Day."

Extended its glory by raking in $ 70.5 million in its first weekend to raise a total tally of $155.4 million, pic then not only surpassed the opening-week record formerly set by "Spider-Man" in 2002, but also broke that of the top July 4th weekend for a non-sequel held by 2005's "War of the Worlds" as well as the July opening weekend for a non-sequel made by "Apes."
