The Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Be sure to check back on Monday for final figures based on actual box office. After making nearly $85 million in its first three-and-a-half days, DreamWorks’ Transformers held well over the three-day weekend, grossing an estimated $67.6 million and becoming the second-highest opening movie for the 4th of July holiday frame behind Spider-Man 2. In just one week, the Michael Bay action flick has grossed approximately $152.5 million–just over its reported $150 million budget–and it’s trailing just behind the original Spider-Man in terms of total gross for its first week. By comparison, Warner Bros.’ romantic comedy License to Wed, starring Robin Williams, brought in an additional $10.4 million over the weekend after its $7.4 million over the holiday, ending up in fourth place in its first weekend.
