BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Opens In North America With A Series Low

BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Opens In North America With A Series Low

Six months ago, most BO pundits would have guessed that Transformers: The Last Knight would be a $1 billion hit. However, its North American debut points to some serious audience fatigue...

Five films in, it appears as if moviegoers have finally had enough of the Transformers franchise. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The Last Knight debuted on Wednesday with a disappointing $15.7 million. That pales in comparison to both the $37.7 million made by Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's $62 million. Both of those opened on a Wednesday too. 

Tracking pointed to a five-day haul of $70 million - $75 million, a huge dip from Transformers: Age of Extinction's $100 million
haul, but Wednesday's number signals a disappointing $65 million. 

The hope now is that Transformers: The Last Knight will be able to make up for this disappointing result overseas. $217 million was spent on the release before marketing costs and there's a very good chance it will still be a hit. However, it's unlikely to get anywhere near $1 billion and there's a very strong possibility that this performance could change Paramount's plans for all those spinoffs and sequels.
