'Transformers: The Last Knight' debuts to a franchise low

'Transformers: The Last Knight' debuts to a franchise low”

American film company Paramount's new film "Transformers: The Last Knight" nabbed the top spot at the North American box office with an over 690-million US dollar debut. When factored into its five-day debut, "The Last Knight" grossed a franchise low of $69 million. The global opening is actually up on Age of Extinction, which kicked off with $189.1 million on its way to $858.6 million internationally and a $1.104 billion total worldwide. The film racked up $196.2 million in foreign box office, with $123.4 million coming from China alone.

Falling to second is last week's champ, Cars 3, which brought in $25.1 million.

Almost a month after opening, Wonder Woman continues to be a major draw. The film has now tied Iron Man's domestic total ($318 million) and is on track to take on fellow DCEU films Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice ($330.4 million) and Suicide Squad ($325 million) despite having had a smaller opening figure than either film.

"Cars 3" has earned 99.9 million after just 10 days in theaters in North America. It also became the top-grossing live-action movie to be directed by a woman, passing "Mamma Mia".

Starring Demetrius Shipp Jr.as the late rapper, who was shot in Las Vegas, age 25, in 1996, it also is yet to open overseas.

And Kumail Nanjiani's critically adored romantic comedy "The Big Sick" should earn $435,000 during its opening weekend in five locations ― that would give the Lionsgate and Amazon Studios release the highest per screen average of any film that has opened this year so far. There's still a solid chance of it avoiding being a money loser for Universal if the global grosses continue to rack up, though domestically it will remain a flop with a final total of probably around $80 million.

The Mummy continued to fade away quickly, down 60% in its third weekend to $5.8 million. The former brought in an estimated $7.4 million for a domestic haul of $24.3 million, while the latter saw a sharp 77.9 percent drop for an estimated earning of only $5.9 million.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", $3 million.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie grossed $4.3 million in its fourth weekend, down 40%.

Scarlett Johansson's Rough Night was down 41% in its second weekend with $4.7 million. It'll be interesting to see the order of finish next weekend as the critically acclaimed action drama Baby Driver arrives on June 28th followed by Despicable Me 3 and The House on June 30th.
