'Transformers' 2nd biggest opening ever in Oz

4-day opening gross just behind 'The Two Towers'

SYDNEY -- "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen" notched up the second-biggest opening weekend of all time in Australia.

Its gross was Aus$13.8 million ($11 million), distributor Paramount Pictures Australia said Monday.

The four day opening for the "Transformers" sequel is 68% bigger than the first "Transformers" film and makes it the second biggest ever four-day weekend behind the opening four days of "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," which took Aus$14.1 million ($11.3 million) after opening on a Boxing Day Thursday.

"Revenge" actually opened Wednesday in Australia with its five-day take extending to Aus$16.3 million ($13 million).
