No Megan Fox, no problem -- 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' still managed to rock the box office this holiday weekend.
The sexy star may not have returned for the third installment in the franchise, but it didn't matter because director Michael Bay's latest offering took in $116.1 million over the four-day holiday weekend, en route to winning the box office battle.
The ‘Transformers’ are back for two and a half hours worth of action in ‘Dark of the Moon,’ the third movie in Michael Bay’s mega-blockbuster franchise is in our 3 local Marcus Theatres this weekend.
Reviews for the movie have been a bit on the negative side; but with it already pulling in $13.5 million on Tuesday, it’s looking to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, movie of the year.
As expected, Pixar’s ‘Cars 2′ easily took first place at the weekend box office, netting a healthy $68 million. That’s about $8 million higher than the original ‘Cars,’ which opened to $60.1 million in 2006.
Another sequel cruises into Twin Ports Marcus Theatres this weekend by way of Pixar’s ‘Cars 2,’ with Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) back for another fast-paced adventure – this time, at the first-ever World Grand Prix.
Reviews haven’t been too kind for the movie, but given Pixar’s recent successes, ‘Cars 2′ should have no problem taking the number-one spot at the box office.
