Director Michael Bay: By the Numbers Box Office Chart
If you haven't already heard, Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is kicking some box office ass. It made a record breaking $60.6 million on Wednesday alone and has amassed a worldwide total of $170 million so far (and its only been out in theaters in the US for three days!). But that's not what this is necessarily about. MovieFill.com put together an awesome visual chart and box office graph called Michael Bay: By the Numbers this week. It's fairly self-explanatory - they compare Bay's budgets to the worldwide gross to the opening weekend for all seven of his past movies, not including Transformers 2. Check it out!

This is cool to see beyond the fact that it's Michael Bay and his movies always have interesting results, but just because it's rather interesting to see that up-down-up graph shape of the worldwide numbers. Oddly, his budget has been roughly the same for the past 11 years, with the latest low point at The Island being the same low point of worldwide grosses graph. So does that mean that the bigger the budget, the more likely it'll be a bigger hit? That can't be true, but maybe it is. Maybe that's just the magical Michael Bay touch?
