Transformers 2 Marks 2nd Best Midnight Run
Paramount can feel confident that they have a big hit on their hands with TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. The sequel posted the second best midnight box office with $16 million. Only THE DARK KNIGHT made more cash in its opening day midnight screenings, earning $18.5 million. TRANSFORMERS 2 midnight opening is still the best ever for a Wednesday open, which was previously held by HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX.
