          Reviews so far said it was on par as the first movie, and better than the second/third. They said it was a long movie, but it does set up for a fifth/sixth movie.

                Weekend Report: Fourth 'Transformers' Opens to $300 Million Worldwide - Box Office Mojo

                Based on this weekend's returns, the Transformers aren't going to face extinction any time soon.

                At the domestic box office, the fourth installment in the immensely successful franchise opened to an estimated $100 million. That's the biggest opening of the year so far ahead of Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million).

                More importantly, it took in over $201 million from 37 international markets. That includes a stunning $90 million in China, which is the biggest "foreign" opening ever there (and probably the biggest overall, though we don't have data to confirm that).

                Overall, the movie earned over $300 million worldwide this weekend. With openings throughout Europe and Latin America on the way, Transformers: Age of Extinction seems poised to make a run at $1 billion.

                Domestically, Age of Extinction's opening ranks second all-time among Transformers movies behind 2009's Revenge of the Fallen ($108 million). That's not an apples-to-apples comparison, though: all three previous movies burned off demand by launching mid-week.

                At 353 IMAX locations, Transformers earned $10.7 million (second all-time in June behind last year's Man of Steel). A 3D share is not available.

                The movie's audience was 64 percent male and 58 percent were 25 years of age and over. They awarded it an "A-" CinemaScore, which is in contrast to its abysmal 17 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

                All three previous Transformers movies earned over $300 million at the domestic box office. While Age of Extinction's opening is undeniably good, it does not put the movie in a position to also reach that milestone. The upcoming holiday makes it difficult to draw specific long-term projections, though it does appear that Age of Extinction is on track for anywhere from $250 to $280 million.

                Transformers: Age of Extinction opened to $201.3 million overseas this weekend, which ranks eighth all-time. That's more impressive considering it was only playing in 37 markets, and wasn't in any of the major markets in Europe or Latin America.

                Nearly half of that opening came in China, where Age of Extinction earned a spectacular $90 million (nearly $10 million from 150 IMAX screens). The previous Transformers movie is one of the highest-grossing imports ever there, and this outing aimed to capitalize on that interest by setting the entire third act in and around Hong Kong. Ultimately, Age of Extinction is guaranteed to earn over $200 million in China, and could even wind up over $250 million.

                Elsewhere, the movie had one of the biggest debuts ever in Russia with $21.7 million. It was also strong in South Korea ($21.5 million) and Australia ($10 million), and set opening weekend records in Malaysia ($6.4 million), Indonesia ($5.7 million) and Hong Kong ($4.8 million).

                According to Paramount, the aggregate figure is a 35 percent improvement over the last movie. Of course, a large part of that gain can be attributed to China, so it's unlikely the rest of the markets saw much of an improvement. Still, this suggests that Dark of the Moon's $771 million overseas total is within reach for Age of Extinction. Next weekend, the movie expands in to the U.K.

                  Weekend Report: 'Transformers' Repeats On Weak Independence Day Weekend - Box Office Mojo

                  Transformers: Age of Extinction easily held on to first place at the box office over a very slow Fourth of July weekend.

                  Transformers: Age of Extinction plummeted 64 percent to an estimated $36.4 million. Without any serious competition, Transformers became the first movie since Captain America: The Winter Soldier to repeat in first place.

                  So far, Age of Extinction has earned $174.7 million, and is trailing the last two Transformers movies by a wide margin. Based on its current trajectory, it's likely that this winds up between $245 million and $265 million.

                  Without adding any new markets, Transformers: Age of Extinction still wound up dominating the international box office with $95.8 million. It has now earned $400.9 million, which is up 21 percent on Dark of the Moon across the same bucket of territories.

                  That entire increase can be attributed to China, where the movie added $50.9 million this weekend for an incredible total of $212.8 million (yes, that's over $35 million more than it's made in the U.S.). Early this week, it will pass Avatar ($217.7 million) to become the highest-grossing movie ever in China.

                  Next weekend, Transformers: Age of Extinction expands in to the U.K., Mexico and a handful of smaller markets. A final total north of $700 million is a guarantee at this point, and it could even eclipse $800 million.
