Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen continues to rake in big box office dollars. In the two weeks since it’s release, the robot flick has pulled in more than $300 million. Those numbers make it the second fastest movie to top the $300 million mark since The Dark Knight did it last summer in 10 days.

But, will the latest Transformers movie stay on top with the big numbers? Time will tell. Especially with the arrival of the next Harry Potter movie due to hit the big screen next Wednesday. The much awaited sequel in the Potter franchise was originally scheduled for release last summer. But, Warner Bros. decided to hold off for a year as they rode the big buck wave of Gothom City’s Dark Knight last year.

According to Britain’s Daily Telegraph, Waylett’s appearance is connected with his April arrest on drug charges.

The teen actor is facing up to 14 years in prison in prison for cannabis production, and another possible five years in prison for possession.
