Transformers: Age Of Extinction Breaks The $1 Billion Mark

transformers001Transformers: Ages of Extinction is the first movie of 2014 to break the $1 billion mark… yes, that’s billion with a “b”. The fourth film in Paramount’s tentpole franchise was able to make that number by an incredible showing in China where the movie has taken in over $300 million in ticket sales. The first movie to ever make that much in China.

The majority of the movie’s success has taken place overseas where it has brought in $763.8 million while domestically it’s the lowest earning in the franchise with only $241.2 million.

It’s predecessor, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon took in $1.12 billion globally back in 2011 and $352.4 million domestically. Paramount has to be happy with the world wide take but has to be wondering why the franchise is losing fans at home.
