With the ever-standing record set at $66.4 million by The Dark Knight, our new release and highly anticipated Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen has come just short and placed it at a firm $60.6 million.

Movie theaters all over the world were packed to the brim with fanboys, car enthusiasts, and people of all sorts, wanting to see the newest instillation of one of the most explosive movies in 2007.

Although many could agree that the movie never failed to deliver excitement, there were arguments concerning the overall quality of the movie, and whether or not it was as great as it could have been.

Also on the fence is director of the Transformers franchise, Michael Bay, as to whether or not he will be leaving it (and the whole genre all together) or moving on to something else.

Transformers fans hope a new movie will be released in the future, but without Michael Bay directing, questions arise about whether it will pertain the same luster.Director Michael Bay

Critics are  saying that the movie won’t meet the demographics’ expectations but, with or without referral of critics, there will be a tremendous turnout.
