(Newser) – The new Transformers flick had a stellar start, raking in $60.6 million on opening day to make it the biggest Wednesday debut ever, Variety reports. For all-around opening days, the Michael Bay shoot-em-up lags just behind record-holder Dark Knight, which took in $67.2 million on a Friday last summer. Transformers 2 has a shot at eclipsing the best five-day open ever, a mark of $152.4 million set by Spider-Man 2 in 2004.
