Age Of Extinction is now the first 2014 film to cross the billion dollar line, and in 5 weeks! We've reported on it's meteoric rise through the box office, here and here but now that's all been far surpassed by today's news, courtesy of trade publication Variety.

The Michael Bay film is the second picture in the giant robots franchise to hit those lofty heights, after 2009’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” The latest “Transformers” was propelled by a record-breaking reception in China, where the film has earned north of $300 million, a new high-water mark for the world’s second-largest movie market. Its cumulative total includes $763.8 million internationally and $241.2 million at the domestic box office.

Not a surprise, still cool.
I watched it 3 times in cinemas, very excited and great movie.

Loved the characters, Lockdown was a boss.
Didn't notice the loss of weapons.
Did notice that Lockdown is smaller than Prime, which rarely happens in movies where the villain is smaller than the hero. After Prime's sword-upgrade thing, I think he was stronger than Lockdown.

Also noticable, normally, also in the cartoons, Optimus fights Megatron.
In very rare occasions does a hero's ally fight the main villain.

Me and the family must have put it over the mark when we saw it on Thursday. At an AMC theater in 3D. Place could easily seat 300-400 big. We were the only 3 in there. Had the entire place to ourselves. It was awesome. :BOT:

Movie was dumb but to see it in my own personal movie theater. Awesome.

Can't wait for the BluRay. This is my second favorite Transformer film(Transformers being the best of the four). This was the first,however,that I went to the movie theater to see.I bought the others on DVD as they were released and then watched them. I'll be going back to the theater for part 5. :BOT: :michaelbay: :CON:

I wonder if the next installment will be even more geared to overseas markets now. Under $300 million domestic when numerous people here have mentioned seeing the movie more than once. Would be a good time for Nightbird to enter wouldn't it? :lol:

I think a battle should take place in Europe, like the small villages,Rome,Somehwere in even Germany. But i have a common thought like a majority that Galvatron is going to be the only main villain on Earth for tf5. But IMO Lorenzo d Boneventuro is really annoying me with his interviews lately. The leader of the autobots goes into space to find his Creators but he says it will mainly ale place on Earth. Also in his opinion no Unicron? We should all just come together and think of a plot idea continuing from AOE

As of July 31, 2014, based on 169 reviews collected by the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, Age of Extinction has received an overall rating average of 17%

Sharknado received positive reviews. It currently has an 82% "fresh" score at Rotten Tomatoes.

That's why I have so little respect for movie reviewers.

The difference between Sharknado and Transformers is that Sharknado is so bad it goes all the way round to being good.

Yeah, Sharknado knows that it's being stupid and just runs with it. The TF movies treat themselves like serious business.

For a movie with the most hate this year it still pulled off one of the biggest numbers this year. It makes me wonder if TF films would've been as successful if the films went another direction more fitting for children? I know I wouldn't support it if it did but I wonder about that.
