As we reported here, thanks to the audiences in China, the box office for Age Of Extinction has been huge, and with the World Cup coming to an end, the film will finally see worldwide release and it's final tally could take it into the same level as Dark Of The Moon and the billionaires club. The next few weeks/month or so will tell us what the box office future holds, but we can remain cautiously optimistic.

According to ComicBookMovie.com, Age Of Extinction has accumulated $412,685,351, worldwide so far!

However, US numbers are still somewhat low and attendance would go a long way to getting the film to at least the same level as Transformers and Revenge Of The Fallen. If the current US pattern holds, Age Of Extinction will be the smallest domestic take of the entire film series. (Currently stands at $128,685,351)

If you haven't seen it yet, or you're on the fence, go check it out with friends, or with your kids, and above all: Have a good time!

We'll keep you updated with the numbers and hopefully we'll get to see a stellar box office take, together.

This is the first TF movie I haven't gone to see in the theater, (first flick I saw multiple times). I'll wait for the BR, (I expect those sales to be MASSIVE).

Impressive. In time, it might even knock X-Men: Days Of Future Past off the "biggest earner of 2014" pedestal (DOFP has currently raked in over $700,000,000).

I haven't had chance yet to check out Dougs real opinion of the movie and I didn't know that the Nostalgia Chick had done a review. I'll have to check it out. Though the initial review caused a argument with a friend of mine who took th e review as the gospel truth. He is convinced that this movie will ruin all movies >:oP

How these movies even make this kind of money I'll never know.


... not that I'm really complaining. *happily plays with toys that probably wouldn't exist without Bay's films*

All yall hould see the film. It's really cool. I mean, it's no Inception, but it doesn't have Hayden Christiansen in it, so that's a plus.

Now might be a good time to go see it. When I saw it for the second time yesterday, there were only seven people in the theater room, counting myself. All adults.

Not watching this movie, after getting burned with DOTM, I don't want to give Michael bay anymore of my money so he can continue to ruin TFs with his explosions, lack of characterisation and unoriginal plots.

I can assure you that this movie at least remedied the one in bold.

Agreed. That's why I honestly think this one's better than any of the first trilogy. We actually understand who the three new Autobots are within 5 minutes of their first appearance.

Now granted, Bay's unwillingness to give Decepticons any characterization in favor of making them generic, shrieking monsters was always my biggest problem with these films, but AofE interestingly dodges that issue by technically not having any actual Decepticons in this one, and sidestepping a problem still counts as a temporary fix.

Add in non-military humans playing a credible role in the plot, and this ends up being the first Bay movie I'll actually see in the theater multiple times...granted, I racked up a LOT of those TRU passes last week because I'd held off on buying any toys until there was a sale, so I won't really be adding to the U.S. box office, but it is genuinely worth seeing on a big screen in 3-D.

it has no competition so its going to make money fast, now if a marvel movie was out at the same time i guarantee the profits would be a lot lower. I personally will not be buying a ticket, watched a bootleg & its not worth seeing on the big screen. Its unnecessarily long & there are to may plot lines going on & not a single one ever gets fleshed out. The bluray i might get though its not a bad action movie & its the best out of the 4, plus being able to pause & fast forward is a godsend.

The first time I went I was with my family (no noisy kids) and we went on the opening Sunday, the theater was almost empty, because it was the first showing I guess.

That's why I make it a point to wait for a week after the movie's release, then go to a matinee instead of waiting until later in the day. Very few people in the seats, no noise during the movie, and I can sit anywhere I want.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens next week, that will bit into it.
(I expect it to be a much better movie than AoE)

Oh and I thought of something ... what is up with the name anyway? "Age of Extinction" ... it's only mentioned once, were we suppose to believe that the seed would wipe out the whole planet because I never really got that impression.

The Seed by itself wouldn't, but what Galvatron wanted to do with it would have. Brains and Optimus said so in the exposition scene at the train yard. Megatron was gonna set off the Seed in a very large city, killing a few hundred thousand people and thus giving him an obscene amount of raw Transformium to create an army of minions which he then would command to wipe out the rest of humanity. To quote Brains, "You greedy bastards brought your own extinction on yourselves."

It's funny how I see a lot of folks have questions about the plot yet I walked out knowing everything. I guess some folks can't take in the plot of this movie? The seed would cause extinction as Galvatron was planning on using it so he can create a massive army that would pretty much wipe out civilization. And China is a pretty big place to start.
