In another sign of the coming apocalypse, Transformers made $30 million dollars on its first day of domestic release.
Oh wait, add in another $8.8 million from previews the night before the movie "officially" opened and you have a total first day gross of almost $40 million dollars.
Meanwhile, back on failure ranch, Pixar's Ratatouille made a paltry $7.9 million on its first day, while the Mandy Moore/Robin Williams abortion License to Wed made only $2 million.
At this rate, Transformers is looking to sky rocket its way to one of the highest grossing movies of all time. Maybe, in the now-guaranteed-sequel, the robots won't even bother turning into cars or planes, they'll just turn into vacuums that suck the money right out of your pockets.
