After this summer's farings for Transformers: The Last Knight, numbers have also been compiled for its home release on DVD and BluRay, along with digital streaming and rental - now that at least North American and Australian markets have received the movie.

According to Variety, the latest Paramount live-action movie debuted at number one over previously released Wonder Woman as far as physical discs are concerned, but number two in terms of digital release and rental. You can check out the whole article here, and the relevant parts below!

“Transformers: The Last Knight,” from Paramount Home Media Distribution, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 30.

But Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, although bumped down to the No. 2 spot, remained in high demand, selling 87% as many units as the latest “Transformers” film in its second week of release.

[..]

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Oct. 1, “Wonder Woman” shot to No. 1 now that its brief week-long holdback from Redbox is over.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” debuted at No. 2, while “47 Meters Down” bowed at No. 3. (Both Paramount and Lionsgate release their films to Redbox on the same day they become available for sale.)

Not bad for a movie that critics and movie goers slammed to no end. Its quite clear now there are 2 seperate crowds. I thought it was an awesome movie.

I literally only bought it for the complete Combiner Wars special feature. My daughter put the movie on and left to play after about 15 minutes saying "Oh, it's that one." (:|

I wanted to get the combiner wars footage but I dont do blue-ray. Its just a scam to revive dying disc sales in a world of netflix and other means to watch (or get hold of) a digital copy. Ill just grab Combiner Wars from one of those outlets. I just bought the good ol DVD for now.

On the movie itself, I feel it follows along the same lines as the first 4 movies. The only real difference from the earlier movies is you get more robot footage which is a good thing. I understand there will always be what I like to call the "rotten tomatoes" crowd who let paid movie reviewers make up their minds for them. Those are usually the people who claim to know what "acting" is or isnt based on personal opinions. I tend to focus more on action sequences and CGI graphics rather than what the human actors do or say in the movie. Ive tried to watch movies hailed for "good acting" or "great screen writing" and I usually fall asleep. Everybody hated the 2nd trilogy of star wars films but I loved them more than the original trilogy. Gone were stupid jim henson puppets replaced by awesome CGI renditions of alien characters. Gone were those lame, over-rated "Luke I am your father" moments replaced by cool action sequences that dont resemble a soap opera. Im not saying the Transformers franchise will ever top Star Wars but in franchise longevity it comes very close.

Well I like it. I like all the movies. I don't think anything will ever top G1 for me, but I never gone by what critics say. I'm an action flick junkie. High drama is BOORRRRRRINGGGGG. Gimme explosions and lasers any day!

I'm getting tbe blu ray but have zero interest in the combiner wars thing (I was barely even interested in that toy line). I just want those lovely complex movie bots in HD (but not ultra HD cos it'll be a while before I get a 4KTV despite owning a PS4 Pro). The TF movies are my absolute fave excuse for high definition. :D

The one thing about this movie that actually makes me angry was the Bee/Nemesis fight. The whole thing was in the previews! I was so looking forward to it and it's sad to me that it was entirely spoiled and actually came off better in the trailers.

Other than that, I feel fairly neutral on it.

That's something you kinda have to blame on advertising -- and it's unfortunately pretty common these days.

Oh im dead serious...

When I get in science fiction mode, I want to see cool CGI graphics and plenty of action.


When I want to see "acting" Ill watch Scarface.

What was the last time you really had great acting and really great CGI graphics in the same film? Independence Day?

I think people dont give the Bayformers franchise the credit it deserves. Same thing for the 2nd star wars trilogy.

People get mad because their favorite actor wasnt chosen. Or because their favorite character didnt get a memorable quote or moment. All that talk about bad acting or bad storylines is 99% haters.

Wonder if this means we will get an extended edition. As for spoilers being revealed before the film's release, I feel that the movie didn't spoil too much of the film's events (even if everyone knew how everything would play out). Not like how others came and went in different film franchises (looking at you, Mr. Hey Everyone).

As for what Rated X said, let the guy like what he likes. Everyone's mileage may vary, but I think everyone's opinion on films should be brought up, instead of hearing the usual comments one would be used to.

Back on topic, the Combiner Wars extra doesn't excite me much. If anything, I will stick with the G1 Redone spoof made by Lord Freddery (and hope Titans Return is good).

For the longest time, I had been deciding whether I liked G1 or the expanded (Live-Action) Film Continuity more. I finally decided I liked the Films better, and one of the major deciding factors was photorealism. Always have preferred photorealism, in nearly any scenario.

Admittedly, the first time I watched The Last Knight I didn't care for it at all, and I'm someone who thoroughly enjoyed the first four. I gave it a second thought, let it marinate, and I'm at the point now where I really enjoy TLK, not as much as the '07 or '11 films, but still very much enjoy it.

The movie might be old news by now but artists are still proud to upload the concept art they produced for the film. And we can see why, you can see some stellar examples of the gorgeous work artists have done while this film was being planned. The shots of Onslought's back and Megatron breathing fire are from Josh Nizzi and the lansdcape shots as well as a shot of the staff are from Thomas Pringle. Enjoy!
