LOS ANGELES - Those "Transformers" robots are record-breakers at the box office.
Hollywood.com box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" debuted with $60.6 million domestically in its first day, a new high for a Wednesday debut.
The previous best Wednesday opening was $44.2 million for "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" in 2007.
The "Transformers" sequel also came in with the second-biggest single-day revenues, behind only "The Dark Knight," with $67.2 million.
"The Dark Knight" and "Spider-Man 3" opened on Friday. *
