The movie raked in just over $200 million it its first five days in theaters. While that may seem like a lot of money, it isn’t the most money ever taken in during the first five days in theaters. That record is still held by The Dark Knight. It was close, but Batman won by just a few million dollars.
With that said, $200million is still good for the number two spot on the list of best five day openings in history, and it demolished The Proposal, which made just $18 million.
Did you see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? What did you think? Sound off in the comments.
I know, I know, there’s tons of teenagers in this country. But really, High School Musical 3 is the biggest movie in the country over its past opening weekend? $40 million dollars worth of teenagers and adults paid to see this movie.
I really am astounded.
I’m surprised Saw V managed to pull in just over $30 million, even with all the movie goers going to HSM. I’m actually surprised that many people paid to see it. It’s the first Saw in 5 years that Christine hasn’t begged me to go see opening night. That’s probably because the franchise is beyond ridiculous now.
Forty million. That’s 4 million people paying $10 each to see it. I… just… wow. Simply wow.
