on opening day than its predecessor. "Dark of the Moon" launched with $37.7 million domestically Wednesday, down 39 per cent from the first day gross of $62 million for 2009's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."
After just over six days in theatres, the new movie still is well behind the $200.1 million domestic haul that "Revenge of the Fallen" managed in only five days.

"It proves that for 3 D to be successful, it has to be attached to the right kind of movie. "It's all about maintaining good quality. If they see three 3 D movies in a row that look terrible, they're not going to put the money down again."
That's a good sign for Hollywood's 3 D business, which had waned as 3 D revenues dipped to 50 per cent or less of the total for some recent releases.
"Dark of the Moon" has far better reviews and probably is drawing more favourable audience word of mouth than "Revenge of the Fallen," which was hated by critics and was a disappointment to many fans, despite the movie's $400 million domestic finish and $800 million global total.
"Cars 2" played to young audiences, the over 35 crowd accounted for 81 per cent of the audience for "Larry Crowne." Movies appealing to older audiences tend to stick around longer in Nike Air Max 90 White And Black Mens theatres, and Universal executives hope fans will seek out the movie once Fourth of July festivities are behind them.
"Cars 2" raised its domestic total to $123 million and topped $200 million worldwide.

The 20th Century Fox romantic romp "Monte Carlo" opened a weak No. 6 with $8.8 million. The movie stars Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester as American travellers who get the princess treatment in Monaco after Gomez impersonates a European heiress.

LOS ANGELES The "Transformers" robots have put their 3 D ticket price advantage to good use.
The studio says 60 per cent of domestic business came from premium priced 3 D admissions, which cost a few dollars more than 2 D screenings. Overseas, 3 D admissions accounted for 70 per cent of ticket sales.

"For adults who are always preoccupied with barbecues and entertaining and family, my expectations were never greater than this," said Nikki Rocco, the studio's head of distribution.
The previous weekend's No. 1 movie, the animated adventure "Cars 2," slipped steeply in its second weekend with $32.1 million domestically, the movie losing steam more quickly than past features from Disney's Pixar Animation outfit.
"People didn't like No. 2 very well," said Don Harris, head of distribution for Paramount. "You had to get the word going that this movie is a lot better than No. 2. What you had was that people were lowering their expectations at the beginning. . We might have started at a place significantly behind where No. 2 was, but as each day went on, we've played better than we anticipated."
