Transformers 2 kills in its opening five days with $200M

There's apparently no stopping those giant freaking robots: Michael Bay's much-hyped sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen raked in an estimated $200 million in ticket sales domestically in just five days, the Associated Press reported.

That includes $112 million domestically in the sequel's first weekend and $201.2 million since opening Wednesday. For its first five days, that puts the Transformers sequel second only to last summer's The Dark Knight, with $203.8 million.

This was the biggest opening weekend of the year, surpassing the $85.1 million debut of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in early May.

The sequel began with $60.6 million in its opening day Wednesday.
