Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hitting DVD and Blu-ray

One shall stand and one shall fall. Isn’t that always the way? I have the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen DVD and Blu-ray cases up on my shelf, and one of them always manages to fall over while the other one stays up there.

Ice Age and Transformers hold their own

In Ice Age’s second week in theaters and Transformer’s third, the two films still managed to finish #2 and #3 in the weekend box office rankings, each pulling in another $25 million or so.
