“Transformers: Age of Extinction” debuted on Friday, and broke records around the world.
The fourth installment of the blockbuster franchise brought in an amazing $100 million in North America this weekend, and another $201 million worldwide. The film has yet to debut in many Latin American and European countries until after the World Cup is over.
In the United States, Transformers 4 is the biggest movie of 2014 so far. In China, it broke every record, claiming the title of biggest movie ever, of all time. It even beat out the previous title holder, “Desolation of Smaug”, by double.
It is no doubt that this is star Mark Wahlberg’s biggest film to date. And with many great films such as “Four Brothers” and Oscar winning “The Fighter” under his belt, this is quite an accomplishment. Wahlberg replaced the star of the first three films, Shia LaBeouf, as the lead (although playing a different character). Ironically enough LaBeouf was arrested on Friday, the day the movie debuted, in New York for disorderly conduct.
Despite negative reviews from critics, fans are raving about the new film. My ten year old, who somehow saw the film before me, describes it as being “epic”. I will confirm this description on Tuesday.
