Just noticed this on Box Office Mojo. Bumping The Return of the King off the list, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, is now the tenth highest grossing film in the US. Ever. Another $1.2 million will knock Revenge of the Sith out of its #9 position.
Of course, thanks to Hollywood Accounting, the cast and crew will merely receive a hardy pat on the head and a “who’s a good boy/girl?” whilst studio executives bathe in the blood of a thousand virgins. Imported, of course. They won’t stand for that domestic crap.
