Transformers - Transformers 3 Records Biggest Ever July 4th Opening

'Transformers 3' has become the biggest July 4th film ever.

The movie - which is also known as 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' and stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Josh Duhamel - has grossed $416m at the worldwide box office making it the biggest motion picture released over the US Independence Day weekend, beating 'Spiderman 2'.

The film - which also features John Turturro and Tyrese Gibson - helped Paramount to become the only studio to have released five consecutive movies that have made more than $100 million domestically.

Rob Moore, vice chair at the American film and distribution company, said: "It shows that you've got to motivate and inspire the audience."

According to experts, at least 60 per cent of the tickets are thought to be from 3D sales.

The Michael Bay-directed movie was released in the US last month and features Rosie making her acting debut as Carly Spencer, while Shia reprised the role of Sam Witwicky.
