According to Boxofficemojo, after 12 days in Vietnam, the revenue for “Transformers: Dark of The Moon” reached $1.445 million and becomes the fifth American film with $1 million turnover in Vietnam, after Tangled, Rio, Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Kungfu Panda 2.

The global revenue of this movie is $782.7 million.The film was launched in Vietnam on June 29, the same day with North America. The movie was a hit in Vietnam.

The Vietnamese movie market is very bustling this year, with breakthroughs in turnover for not only Hollywood but also Vietnamese products.

Vietnam top screenings.

“Brides’ War” by Victor Vu, which was launched early this year, earned nearly VND40 billion (nearly $2 million) to become the best-selling Vietnamese movie so far.


Last year only Avatar hit $1 million revenue while five movies exceeded that milestone in the first half of 2011. Kungfu Panda 2 holds the record for revenue with $2.62 million.

So far, only Avatar and Kungfu Panda 2 reach turnover of over $2 million in Vietnam. However, Megastar film distributor hoped that Transformers 3 would exceed Avatar, because this movie is still very hot in Vietnam.

Some blockbusters will be screened in Vietnam from now to the year-end, including: Captain America: The First Avenger, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (phần một), Mission Impossible 4 and Alvin and The Chipmunks 3.
