"Transformers" Conquer!

5 Jul – Michael Bay's extra-terrestrial robot feature "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" trumps North American box office with US $97.5 million on its opening last week, leaving "Cars 2" to slow down to the number two spot, while "Bad Teacher" which opened up second last week, drops a spot to the third place for the weekend just gone (30 June –3 July), according to online tracker Box Office Mojo.

"Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" dominates US, Malaysian as well as Singaporean box office for the weekend just gone.
No surprises in Malaysia, as "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" takes the top spot as cinemas registered a heavy crowd of moviegoers as they rushed for tickets for sold out shows. Local movie "Sekali Lagi..." starring Shaheizy Sam and Lisa Surihani debut at second place, while "Green Lantern" which held first place last week drops to third place at the local box office.

For Singapore, "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" conquers the first place as well, while "Monte Carlo" opens up to a not so grand second place, leaving "Mr.Popper's Penguins" dancing down to third place at the local box office.

Other new releases and sneak shows last week in Malaysia include "Delhi Belly" with "Mr. Popper's Penguins", "Tolong! Awek Aku Pontianak" and "The Ultimate Winner" and "Bbuddah-Hoga Terra Baap" opening this week.

In Singapore, other new releases and sneak shows last week include "Delhi Belly" with "Larry Crowne", "Four", "Mr. And Mrs. Single" and "Beautiful Lies" opening this week.
