‘Transformers Dark of the Moon’ Dominates Holiday Box Office

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

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.

It marks the best premiere for a film over the July 4th weekend in history, shattering the $115.8 million set by ‘Spider-Man 2.’

Since its release last Wednesday, ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ has earned a staggering $181.9 million in the US and a robust $398 million around the world.

Last week’s box office champ, ‘Cars 2′ fell to second place, while ‘Bad Teacher’ pulled in at number three.

The weekend’s other new release, the Tom Hanks-Julia Roberts comedy ‘Larry Crowne,’ didn’t fare so well. It mustered a fourth place showing, courtesy of the $15.7 million it made over the four-day weekend.
