Paramount Pictures announced Wednesday that the third flick of the franchise was the first in the studio's history - and only the tenth film ever - to reach $1 billion. The movie grossed $338 million domestically through Monday and $663 billion internationally through Tuesday.

Transformers 3 has helped Paramount reach other major milestones this summer as well. The studio passed the $2 billion at the international box office Tuesday, less than two months after they passed the $1 billion mark on June 10. This is the second year in a row that they reached this feat, and they're the first studio to do so in 2011. Last week, the 3D movie became the first Paramount title to cross the $500 million mark at the international box office.
