The Transformers sequel has become a surefire success at the box office a day before the film is released -- it's already among the top 25 pre-sellers of all time.

Top movie-theater booking site MovieTickets.com reports that more than 600 performances of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen have already sold out, including 274 midnight showings.

The film, starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, currently accounts for 93 percent of ticket sales at the Web site, and has bumped the original 2007 Transformers from the top 25 list.

MovieTickets.com executive vice president Joel Cohen tells WENN, "So much for being robots in disguise; Transformers 2 is sure to be one of our highest-grossing and most visible openers in 2009."

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the SithHarry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King top the list of pre-sellers, ahead of The Dark KnightTwilight and Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.

All the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films make the top 25 on the list, as do the two Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Spider-Man 3 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year.
