The good news: Transformers: Age of Extinction is the top performing film of 2014. It is the only film to cross over the billion dollar mark this year. Currently, it is also the biggest domestic hit with $243M (75% of earnings from overseas). The bad news: Michael Bay probably isn't directing the next installment and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will eventually overtake Transformers: Age of Extinction as the domestic box office champ. Now, come check out a neat visual effects breakdown of Transformers 4 by Method Studios.
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION - The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
TRANSFORMERS 4 will be directed by Michael Bay, from a script written by Ehren Kruger. The cast includes: Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammar, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci and Jack Reynor. Set for release on June 27th, 2014!
