BOX OFFICE: TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Is 2014's First Movie To Hit $1 Billion

Regardless of whether you love or hate this franchise, the popularity of Transformers can't be denied as the latest Michael Bay helmed instalment - Age of Extinction - is now the first movie of 2014 to hit $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Read on for details!


The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Transformers: Age of Extinction is now the second instalment in the four part franchise to hit $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Despite the fact that Paramount Pictures will receive only 25% of it, the movie was helped a great deal by an amazing performance in China where it grossed over $300 million. Domestically, it has earned $241.2 million, a franchise low. However, including those Chinese numbers, Age of Extinction has taken a whopping $763.8 million overseas. "Time and again, Michael has delivered pictures that audiences around the globe truly love," said Paramount chairman-CEO Brad Grey in a statement. "Along with the immensely talented and versatile Mark Wahlberg, the great Steven Spielberg as executive producer, and a superb cast, he created a powerful re-launch of this franchise. This tremendous accomplishment – to be the first film of 2014 to earn over $1 billion at the box office – proves once again that Michael is a world-class filmmaker at the top of his game." Transformers: Dark of the Moon, earned $1.12 billion back in 2011, while the first made $709 million and its sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen took $836 million.
