BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: AOE Could Be On Track For A $100M Opening Weekend

It may have been blasted by critics, (currently sitting at 17% on Rotten Tomatoes) but that hasn't stopped the public from coming out in droves for Michael Bay's latest Transformers flick. After a strong Friday opening, "AgeOf Extinction" might juts reach a whopping $100M over the weekend.

Michael Bay's Transformers movies have always made a ton of cash, while being critically panned. Of course it's not unusual for general audiences to completely go against the critical consensus, but the funny thing is, most of the people over 15 that I know hate the damn things too! Bay has admitted that he makes these movies for teenage boys, and I guess there must be quite a lot of 'em spending their pocked money this weekend! Deadline report that after rolling out into 4,233 theaters on around 10,000 screens, "Age Of Extinction" is now estimated to have a $40M Friday on track for around a $100M weekend. Many think bad WOM will hinder that, but it didn't seem to hurt the previous two flicks. Will you be seeing Transformers: Age Of Extinction this weekend?
