Weekend Box Office Report: June 27-29, 2014

Jun. 29, 2014by: Dave Davis

Transformers triumphant!

Master blaster Michael Bay brought his colossal robots in disguise back to theaters this weekend, putting TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION at the top of the box office with an estimated $100 million!

Assuming that figure holds true when tomorrow's actual receipts are calculated, that will mean the latest TRANSFORMERS is the first 2014 release to crack nine digits on its opening weekend.

The opening for the fourth metallic smackdown came in below 2009's TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN ($108.9 million) but just above 2011's TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON ($97.8 million) -- which went on to a titantic worldwide total of $1.1 billion, and remains the seventh highest-grossing movie of all time. 

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION also marks the second-biggest opening for destruction virtuoso Michael Bay, and the highest weekend for star Mark Wahlberg, whose previous best was Tim Burton's 2001 remake of PLANET OF THE APES with a $68.5 million opening. Meanwhile, former TRANSFORMERS series star Shia LaBeouf is apparently busy being a jackass engaging in various performance art experiments...

In addition, the latest collateral damage clash of Autobots and Decepticons brought in over $200 million just from international crowds, putting its opening weekend worldwide total over $300 million. Granted, the onslaught of explosive chaos cost north of $200 million, but that's still a whopping first weekend.

Unsurprisingly, critics had their heavy weapons ready and trained on Bay's newest (17% on Rotten Tomatoes), but paying crowds cheered on Optimus Prime and colleagues with an 'A-' CinemaScore. TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION won't have to face another big-budget spectacle challenger until DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES swings into theaters on July 11.

Holding strong in second place was 22 JUMP STREET with $15.4 million. On its third weekend in theaters, the R-rated Channing Tatum/Jonah Hill sequel has already surpassed the original 21 JUMP STREET's $138.4 million domestic total. Circling in third place was HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 with $13.1 million, as it glides to $228 million worldwide.

Dropping to fourth was last week's winner, the comedy sequel THINK LIKE A MAN TOO with $10.4 million, a loss of 64% from its opening weekend. It was followed by Disney's MALEFICENT holding fifth with $8.2 million as it crossed $200 million domestically and approaches $600 million worldwide. 

The Clint Eastwood-directed musical JERSEY BOYS slipped to sixth with $7.6 million, a drop of 42% from last weekend's opening. After that, Tom Cruise continues to nudge EDGE OF TOMORROW forward with another $5.2 million, and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is still gasping with $4.8 million

Toward the bottom, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST clings to the present and CHEF refuses to leave the kitchen as GODZILLA marches back into the sea. In limited release, the post-apocalyptic train SNOWPIERCER rolled out with an adequate $20k per-screen, topped by $29k per-screen for the Mark Ruffalo/Keira Knightley romance BEGIN AGAIN.

Next week (on Wednesday) offers a variety of summer alternatives for your Fourth of July weekend, including the R-rated Melissa McCarthy comedy TAMMY, the found-footage family alien adventure EARTH TO ECHO, and the R-rated exorcism thriller DELIVER US FROM EVIL (directed by Scott Derrickson, who Marvel chose for their DOCTOR STRANGE feature).

Interesting side note that perhaps those numbers could be inflated due to possible lay offs if it didn't hit the $100 million mark. It is kinda weird it just barely got over that....

Wow

I think people are trying to come across to be more intellectual and sophisticated than they really are. To put society or people down for liking a "movie" that is based on a 80's toy cartoon sounds easy and nothing intellectual about it. Its a movie. Im sure these people are watching broadway shows and reading the encyclopedia.

That's the irony of it all. If TF4 holds up for the next couple weeks and breaks the current 700+ box office, people are gonna be super outraged. At the same point, why is it such a big deal if TF4 does well? Obviously there is an interest in it, no matter whom likes/dislikes it, but this childish mentality of "I have no faith in the human race" because it aint Shakespeare is nuts.
I read on person saying how DOFP was a much better movie, and on some level I agree, but how are the issues in

I read on person saying how DOFP was a much better movie, and on some level I agree, but how are the issues in that movie any different than TF4?! They aren't, but they are allowed to be overlooked simply because people liked that movie more.
It's freakin Transformers, not Macbeth. You either enjoy it or you don't, but stop treating people as less than human for liking a fun popcorn flick. I hate reality shows, so I don't watch them. It's that simple. If you like em, fine, it DOES NOT affect my life nor does me liking TF4 affect your life. What's the big deal?

Pushing It!

TF:AOE was a welcome sequel and while the action was great I have the say this time the story was nowhere near interesting as the previous ones. I actually missed Shia and his girls. An inventor who's trying to make gadgets after watching the Goonies, the Autobots are unable to let the world know what the hell is happening to them. At one point it says they hunting TF but later on it was about Autobots being killed of saying they are Decepticons?The Chinese casting is Hilarious. Most of all I

At one point it says they hunting TF but later on it was about Autobots being killed of saying they are Decepticons?The Chinese casting is Hilarious. Most of all I hate the fact that Optimus Prime is reduced to giving long boring speeches while the other Autobots do the fighting. Dinobots insertion is unnecessary as they have no personality or real purpose. I am a big Michael Bay fan but this one had weak leads and honestly characters that are easily forgettable. Sophia Myles was hot and the opening sequence is really cool to watch but the moment film turns to Mark Wahlberg and Optimus it gets ridiculous.

Come on people, quit the drama queen routine. This is hardly the first time the public has financially rewarded a stupid, poorly made movie. It certainly won't be the last. If you're going to throw your hands up and bemoan the decline of civilization every single time then I, for one, need a drink.

I like big, action-packed blockbusters as much as the next guy, but there's a difference between a film of that kind that's good, and something like Transformers. Age of Extinction is better than Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, but a Michael Bay cannot change his spots. I really wish he had higher-ups (like Spielberg perhaps) to wag a finger and rein him in. In a way, this is what George Lucas needed on the Star Wars prequels, and even with things like Jar Jar Binks, it was far less

I really wish he had higher-ups (like Spielberg perhaps) to wag a finger and rein him in. In a way, this is what George Lucas needed on the Star Wars prequels, and even with things like Jar Jar Binks, it was far less obnoxious than Bay's proclivities. I saw the film to review it, so I did not contribute to the box office. If I weren't reviewing the film, I would not have paid to see it in theaters. I didn't see Dark of the Moon in theaters after the major let-down that was Revenge of the Fallen.

Sad..

This just encourages Hollywood to make more garbage like this. And though I do hate the Transformers movies, I don't hate Bay. I loved Pain and Gain. That kind of makes it even sadder; he's not an untalented hack who's incapable of making a good movie. Of course, Pain and Gain only made $86 Million worldwide, so the whole business is just negative reinforcement for a guy like Bay. Make your passion project film with two big stars, barely eke out a profit. Crank out lowest common denominator

Good Lord!
Not only did it get really bad reviews from critics & fans but it's also the longest film of the summer which means less shows per day.
And its still the only one to open over $100 mil its first weekend.

Debating the merits of the Transformers series is like giving a thorough critique of jailhouse toilet wine. It's going to be consumed no matter what but don't treat it like it's made with integrity or skill.

It seems to be a big split. People either hate it or enjoyed it, reviews horrible or not. I really enjoyed it TF4 and I am glad sales seem to be doing well. If you hate it, that's fine, but don't preach that your opinion is far better than anyone else for liking TF4.
Is it just me or am I the only person who really didn't see product placement outside Budd light, or whatever the alcohol was (non-drinker). I guess you can count the cars as product placement but...it's Transformers so cars are

It amazes me that many of the commenters here expect in depth story-telling from a movie based on a cartoon based on a toy about robots that turn into cars and fight other robots. Maybe ive forgotten, but was there more to the plot of the cartoon than what there is in these movies? If I remember, the cartoon was just fighting and explosions and cool robots, which is essentially what these movies are, and Bay does a fine job of entertaining the audience. Enjoy them for what they are and quit

First, it has to be entertaining. I don't remember the cartoons focusing on boring/annoying human characters. Nor do I remember the racial stereotypes. Also, a Transformers movie has no business being nearly 3 hours long.

The LEGO Movie was based on toys and was exciting, entertaining, very funny, imaginative, had memorable characters and actually provided surprisingly thoughtful commentary on the likes of conformity, creativity and the importance of play.

Bay Haters

You guys coming on here can bitch and moan all you like. I think the fact it's had such shitty reviews is actually garnering more support for the movie - it will continue to make money and people will still go.
@razgriz21 - that's a big comment to trash talk over $2.5 billion dollars worth of people to say they all like crap ??

I'm not going to bitch about Transformers 4, because everything that has been said has been said. You people keep throwing money his way, so that's that.

Great to see 22 Jump Street holding up like a champ. Just saw it this weekend and it was just as hilarious as 21 Jump Street, perhaps even more! I wouldn't mind if they moved forward with 23 Jump Street. Btw, how has Snowpiercer been doing in limited release?

Can Bay spare us this time? Yet you go see it on opening day only to complain about it. How about just not going at all, and saving your comments for someone who cares. It was what it was a summer movie nothing more. If you don't know Bay by now then you clearly haven't seen the past 3 in the series. It was a fun movie a little long, but fun. I prefer Bays no Transformers movies, but they are even a bit over the top. Moral of this is don't go in wishing to see something to wow you when by now

I thought with a new cast and a new story Bay may have changed it up a bit. I give every movie a chance, even Bay's films. I know Bay who made a good movies called "The Rock", "Bad Boys", and the first "Transformers". He seemed to lost his touch with balancing action and story. While the first "Transformers" was good, I did like it, the last three were bad. Once again, I give everything a chance because every director has a few that are not up to snuff.

My spare me this time comment was about him saying he was done and when he came back he said that he was going to make this one different than the others only to turn around and give us the same movie. Own up to it if you are going to do that. Don't promise us something else then just repeat the same formula.

Well, the terrorists have won....I did not give Bay my money. It's as if he asks, "pay me money to kick you repeatedly in the balls." Tragically though, people seem to enjoy getting kicked in the balls. That CinemaScore is depressing. But to each their own, at least some people enjoyed it. Regardless, this summer hasn't had a break out champion in terms of box office yet, I don't see Transformers cracking 300 million domestically, maybe these tent poles are finally and slowly chocking [link]

Regardless, this summer hasn't had a break out champion in terms of box office yet, I don't see Transformers cracking 300 million domestically, maybe these tent poles are finally and slowly chocking [link] grossing 200 million is impressive, but not when you factor the budgets of say Xmen, Maleficent, etc...

Sad to see HtTYD 2 falling so fast
About T4: numbers won't hold, it will be below $100M. And the $300M worldwide opening is still $80M under the last one's...

Yep, Indeed...
But those kind of things don't even surprise me anymore...
On another point, the 20k/screen average for SNOWPIERCER are good but I was hoping for more, here as well...

Can Bay spare us this time

And just say he is going to direct the next one instead of denying it like he did with this one.

I saw it opening day..absolutely terrible film. The product placement in that film was extremely distracting to the point of annoyance
