'Age Of Extinction' Has The Biggest Box Office Gross of 2014

The latest installment of the Transformers franchise "Age of Extinction" earned an estimated $100 million dollars across the country in the U.S.A. over the weekend, making it the top movie debut of 2014 to date. 

The movie is also a career high grossing film for movie star Mark Wahlberg, who leads the cast in telling the story of what happened five years after the city of Chicago was nearly destroyed in the third film.

The $200 million dollar cost from production studio Paramount Pictures was a hit for fans over the weekend who helped it top the box office - and a downer for critics who felt the movie had to many odd and immature scenes.

The company’s successful movie franchise “Transformers” has garnered a total of $2.67 billion from the previous releases and has also outpaced the $3 billion mark with the the fourth flick.

Michael Bay has also had his say on critics, telling MTV: "They love to hate, and I don't care; let them hate.

"They're still going to see the movie! I think it's good to get a little tension. Very good. I used to get bothered by it, but I think it's good to get the dialogue going. It makes me think, and it keeps me on my toes, so it's good."

The new movie earned a staggering $301.3 million from 37 territories, or 10,152 locations — a 35 percent uplift over Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Early estimates put its China earnings in the $90 million range, which is the best opening ever for a foreign film there. The 150 IMAX screens also made up a huge part of the weekend earnings accounting for a record-breaking $10 million. It’s also the biggest opening of all time in Hong Kong and Indonesia and the second biggest opening of all time in Russia.

Partly shot in Hong Kong over two weeks in October, the fourth installment of the Transformers franchise grossed $1 million on its opening day in Hong Kong on June 26, breaking the record previously held by Iron Man 3 in April 2013 with $850,000, according to Hong Kong Box Office Ltd., a subsidiary of Hong Kong Motion Picture Industry Association and the Hong Kong Theatres Association. During the first four days of its release in the territory, it has raked in $4.8 million, ahead of Iron Man 3 with $4.7 million.

The Paramount blockbuster outperformed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and its $95 million inauguration in April.
