BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Is Now 2014's Highest Grossing Movie

Paramount and Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction has now earned $752.M USD and is projected to hit the $1.25B USD mark before finishing up its run. Looks like we're headed for Cybertron and Unicron in the next installment.

Despite director Michael Bay and the film's producers insisting that they weren't entirely sure that Transformers: Age of Extinction would kick off a brand new Transformers trilogy, the box office tally will make it very hard for AOE to be a one-and-done venture. Current estimates project that the film will substantially surpass the $1 billion dollar mark before finishing its global run in movie theaters. The film's performance in China is truly impressive as AOE is soundly outperforming its domestic total here in the US. In fact, the film is still going relatively strong in the US and China and still has a number of foreign territories that have yet to release Michael Bay's fourth Transformers outing. Are you ready for Unicron?

deserves every penny

Couldn't have happened to a worse director and a worse franchise. I think Bay found his new 'Murica now it is all about China and pandering to it.

Hah, not really shocked.
Atumbem - 7/13/2014, 10:52 AM
Did you expect anything less. These films always do very well at the box office.
BlackBolt72 - 7/13/2014, 10:52 AM
Eye candy in its extreme form somehow always works. If you don't know anything about Transformers it works pretty good. We knew we would see this.

Best film ever
AlexanderLykins - 7/13/2014, 10:53 AM
Glad everyone else enjoyed it though.



Just not my type of movie.

CapedBaldy - 7/13/2014, 10:54 AM

CaptShipwreck - 7/13/2014, 10:54 AM

@Doopie Wait, what?
Omarvls - 7/13/2014, 10:54 AM
If this pile of garbage can make 1.2 Billion then

Age of Dawn 1.5 Billion
Age of Ultron 1.5 Billion

IF NOT MORE

Not shocked, not surprised, but still a bit disappointed. So many other (read: better) movies that actually deserve this kind of money are sinking at the box office, while this keeps raking it in.

At the end of the day though, the amount of money these movies make doesn't really matter to us and it shouldn't. It's like cheering for the 1% to keep getting richer, while they simultaneously pick our pockets and steal our wallets. This inevitable 10-page thread is going to be such a waste of time.

And just like that all of the CBMs of 2014 were spanked mercilessly. I'm fine with this, but I still find it a bit saddening that Captain America The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Futures Past didn't as much as Transformers 4 in such a short span of time.
AlexanderLykins - 7/13/2014, 10:56 AM
This franchise just keeps on rolling!

DaVinci31 - 7/13/2014, 10:56 AM
Didn't Watch LOL

Saw it once, could not sit through it a second time.

TRANSFORMER STUDIOS IS WINNING!!!
Doopie - 7/13/2014, 10:57 AM
don't worry - I was not being serious.


This movie got none of my money but obviously some (read: quite a lot) of people must enjoy it. Just goes to show what BO numbers mean nothing to the quality of a movie.
Jollem - 7/13/2014, 10:58 AM
next comes the turtles

YeezusWept - 7/13/2014, 10:58 AM
This movie was a [frick]ing mess.

pesmerga44 - 7/13/2014, 11:01 AM
It is both disappointing and fascinating at the same time that Bay can make such terrible films and yet they somehow sucker in the general audience to come see them and do so well.
Calculon - 7/13/2014, 11:01 AM
Far as I can tell the only real competitor left for TF this year is Hunger Games, but it would have to do insanely well to compete with Bay's China revenue.
MrCBM56 - 7/13/2014, 11:01 AM
Dawn of The Planet of The Apes was fantastic.
DoubleDion - 7/13/2014, 11:02 AM
Uhhhh Marvel... your move...
pesmerga44 - 7/13/2014, 11:02 AM
@Jollem

Ya I definitely won't see that movie either until maybe I come across it on Red Box at the Ralphs near my house.
marvel72 - 7/13/2014, 11:02 AM
said it would be the highest grossing movie 2014,its a popular franchise like them or not.

for me all the transformers movies are,is fantastic cgi & battle scenes everything inbetween sucks.
Doopie - 7/13/2014, 11:03 AM
I did read an article on another site about the studio somehow inflating their numbers....anyone know if there's any truth to that?
BlindJustice - 7/13/2014, 11:04 AM
The turtles won't touch Transformers. The interest in them is just not the same.

Not that it really matters since both are Bay's children.

I highly doubt we'll ever see Cybertron since Bay loves his human cast so much...especially the barely legal ladies.
MrCBM56 - 7/13/2014, 11:05 AM
LOL. The transformer battles are becoming repetitive crap. If it wasn't for Lockdown anti gravity thingy or the dinobots Legendary knight(?), nothing new would've been added.

Believe it or not, but all the impressive explosions are becoming increasingly tiresome.
KurtWagner1225 - 7/13/2014, 11:05 AM
OH,FOR FRICKS SAKE, these movies are terrible.im so disapointed right now,give the money to films like edge of tomorrow or apes, those are good movies worth your time and money
Vadakin - 7/13/2014, 11:06 AM
It's things like this that make me weep for humanity's future.
Jollem - 7/13/2014, 11:07 AM
@pesmerga44 - that's cool, buddy. i'm looking forward to torrenting gotg, myself
KurtWagner1225 - 7/13/2014, 11:07 AM
mrcbm-i think thats bays mission in life..to make us watch so many explosions and say we dont like cool action scenes and explosions anymore,also glad u saw APES and loved it
MrCBM56 - 7/13/2014, 11:07 AM
@Ezio Agreed. I still can't believe audiences are willing to sit down for nearly 3 hours to watch this incoherent trash.
AlexanderLykins - 7/13/2014, 11:07 AM
@BlindJustice

kinghulk - 7/13/2014, 11:08 AM
doopie- how would they be able to do that?
BlindJustice - 7/13/2014, 11:08 AM
Building more theaters in China has proved to pay off for Bay. It'll keep doing well in the coming weeks because it's still selling out at the big city theaters across the globe.
