columnist Steve Mason is reporting that Transformers “scored an estimated $28 million to $31 million on its opening day, surpassing the previous Tuesday record of $15.7 million set by Pirates 2 last summer. [and] likely the 4th-best opening day of 2007 behind only Spider-Man 3, Pirates 3 and Shrek the Third.
Ratatouille is holding especially well, adding another $7.85 million Tuesday and pushing past the $60 million mark. Live Free or Die Hard is also proving resilient with $4.44 million Tuesday and a new cume of $57 million. License to Wed, a critically-reviled comedy from Warner Bros, is a full-scale disaster earning only an estimated $2 million.”
