Box-Office: TRANSFORMERS AGE OF EXTINCTION Explodes with $100 Mil Debut

transformers-age-of-extinction-box-office

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" proved once again just how popular this franchise is. The third sequel in the series, and reboot of sorts, opened with $100 million domestically and $201 million overseas, the biggest summer debut, yet. The domestic opening is the second best of the series, behind "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" ($108 mil) and just slightly above "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" ($97 mil). I don't know about all of you reading this, but I smell a new sequel cooking.

With no other major wide releases to speak of, "22 Jump Street" held its ground as this week's No. 2 movie at the box-office. The R-rated comedy grossed $15 million, and has now rounded up $139 million domestically, surpassing the first film's lifetime gross of $138 million.

Last week's No. 1 movie, the comedy sequel "Think Like a Man Too" dropped by more than 64% from last weekend, sliding down to No. 4 with just $10 million over the weekend. The film has grossed $48 million domestically, but it looks like it will have a hard time matching the $98 million total of the first film.

New Wide Releases: "Transformers: Age of Extinction".

Biggest Drop : "Think Like a Man Too" (-64%)

Smallest Drop : "Chef" (-3%)
