Michael Bay has done it again. Transformers: Age Of Extinction has now officially crossed $1B, with a worldwide cume of $1.005B. That includes $241.2M domestic and $763.8M international. This is the second film in the Transformers franchise to cross the billion dollar mark, following Dark Of The Moon in 2011. TAOE, which released in late June, is the first film of 2014 to hit the milestone.
It added $19.1M at 5,853 locations overseas in its sixth frame this weekend to push it over the top. Last month, the movie had already become the highest-grossing film ever in China with over $300M. It ended its run there last week with an official $301M. TAOE has yet to bow in Spain and Japan (Aug. 8) and Venezuela (Aug. 22), meaning its global run is far from over. This weekend’s notable holdovers included Germany, where it now has a cume of $30.5M, making it the top movie of 2014; France, where the cume is now $19.6M; and Brazil, with a cume of $25.3M to date.
