BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Passes $400 Million Worldwide
It hasn't even been out a week, but Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction has already passed $400 million at the worldwide box office (despite mostly negative reviews from critics). Could we be looking at 2014's highest grossing release? Read on for details!
Transformers: Age of Extinction has now passed $400 million at the worldwide box office, with over $128 million domestically and $284 million overseas for a total of $412 million. Though it looks set to be the lowest grossing instalment in the franchise in North America, it will likely be the highest grossing Transformers movie to date internationally. China has contributed a huge amount to these numbers as it opened bigger there than domestically. Love them or hate them, the fact is that this is a franchise which is going to be around for a very long time!
Now, about those reviews. At a recent press conference, director Michael Bay is quoted as saying, "I work as hard as I can and I'm glad that people are liking the movie besides the critics, let's just forget the critics. The people in the audience are liking the movies - that's what I make movies for. I think that they should make it mandatory for reviewers that they sit in the audience - just by themselves surrounded by a real audience,""They applaud, they laugh, they cheer. I don't know what movie [the critics are] reviewing. People walked out happy, that's what we're trying to do. We're just entertainers."
