Transformers Wins the Weekend, and Cars 3 and Wonder Woman Tie for Second
Transformers: The Last Knight won the weekend with $45.3 million over the three days and $69.1 million domestically since Wednesday.
That’s the lowest opening for the franchise. The last that opened on a Wednesday earned $162.6 million over the five days and $97.8 million for the weekend. While it was a low opening, it was on par with the expectations for the industry.
Internationally, the film did better earning an estimated $196.2 million with a franchise high in China of $123.4 million.
The film was 57% male, 29% under the age of 18, but earned an “A” CinemaScore again showing fans love it while critics didn’t.
More interestingly, in second place it looks like a tie with Cars 3 and Wonder Woman both earning an estimated $25.2 million. That’s just a 39% drop for Wonder Woman, which is impressive.
Cars 3 is now up to $99.9 million while Wonder Woman stands at $318.4 million. Cars 3 has earned $141.3 million worldwide while Wonder Woman has earned $652.9 million.
In fourth place was 47 Meter Down which brought in $7.4 million and the top five was topped with All Eyez on Me with $5.9 million.
