BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS 4 Is China's Highest Grossing Movie Ever...After 2 Weeks
Michael Bay's Transformers: Age Of Extinction has now become the highest grossing movie of all time in China after just 2 weeks on release, surpassing the $221 haul taken by James Cameron's Avatar. More after the jump..
There's cash to be made in the Middle Kingdom -- something Hollywood has definitely copped onto. Marvel earned a few extra dollars at the Chinese box office when Iron Man 3 shot certain scenes specifically for that territory, and now Michael Bay has taken this to a whole new extreme by casting the likes of Li Bingbing and Han Geng in prominent roles, and actually moving the action in Transformers: Age Of Extinction to China in the final act. Audiences there have evidently lapped it up, as THR report that the flick become China's highest grossing film of all-time after being out for just two weeks. The fourth Transformers movie has earned $222.74 million, surpassing the $221 million record held by Avatar. Currently sitting on $575 million worldwide, it doesn't look as if Bay's latest beast will be slowing down anytime soon.
