“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” a new movie from Paramount Pictures based on Hasbro Inc.’s iconic toy brand, could be the top-grossing film at the box office this summer, Bloomberg News reported today.
In a report this week, Matthew Harrigan, an analyst for Wunderlich Securities Inc., predicted the “Transformers” sequel could earn nearly as much from ticket sales in its first seven days of release as “The Dark Knight,” which had first-week sales of $238.6 million and was the top-grossing film of 2008, Bloomberg reported.
