Though the sun and heat should have driven most to swimming pools and the beach for the Fourth of July, a few giant robots in Transformers were able to pull their fair share of moviegoers into dark theaters. Taking in $27.9 million over the holiday, Transformers took the title of largest July 4th box office.

Transformers Takes July 4th Box Office Record

The Fourth of July record was being held by Spider-Man 2 (2004) with $21.9 million, a number easily destroyed by Transformers' $27.9 million.

Though Independence Day normally sees a dip in ticket sales at the box office, 2007 broke from precedent. Ratatouille took in an estimated $10.2 million over the holiday, a good $2 million more than it's $7.9 million take on Tuesday. Following suit, Live Free or Die Hard brought in $6 million, compared to the $4.5 million it did a day before.

The increased earnings isn't limited to summer tentpoles either. Michael Moore's Sicko saw increased audiences with $1.1 million in ticket sales, compared with $750K the day before.

License to Wed, which only bowed to $2.2 million, saw an increase to $2.9 million on the holiday.

In short, Hollywood had a few extra million reasons to celebrate.

Transformers is out in theaters.
