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

ADVENTURE Nu Metro’s Xtreme cinema at The Glen transforms moviegoers cinema experience with impressive sound and a larger-than-life screen

Despite the disappointing figures, the blockbuster is doing big business internationally - after making a debut of $123.4 million in China. Let's see if this Transformers film can produce similar numbers. The Last Knight ended up amassing a Friday to Sunday gross of just $45.3 million, a slight improvement over its mid-week performance but still a bad showing for the film.

In fact, Disney's Cars 3 in its second weekend finished in a tie with Wonder Woman's fourth weekend.

And at No. 3 is "Cars 3", bringing in about $25 million in its sophomore weekend.

The Lionsgate drama "All Eyez on Me" slipped to fifth-place on the domestic charts, only grossing $5.8M in the film's second-week in theaters.

Speaking to Collider, Mark explained: "I am [contracted for more] but look, I signed on to make these movies with Michael". The previous movie in the series, "Age of Extinction", made the majority of its money ($858.6 million) overseas.

With some of its action set in medieval times, "The Last Knight" has the Autobots once again fighting for the future of planet Earth. In its third week of release, the film booked almost $25.2 million in domestic ticket sales.

The director, for his part, has previously claimed he was set to walk away from the Transformers series, before returning to make another movie. The Transformers franchise kicked off 10 years ago with the first Transformers movie, which turned young stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox into household names. Including 40 markets around the world, the film's global tally sits at $265.3 million after one weekend. More than $500 million of the film's grosses came from worldwide theaters. The film has earned about $153.8 million so far in the US, but internationally, ticket sales have soared to $500.6 million, and it still hasn't been released in Japan. The last movie, which was a then domestic low at $245.4M, grossed $1.1 billion worldwide and minted a $250M profit after all post-theatrical streams were counted.

Speaking of troubled franchises, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales came in next with $5.2 million in its fifth weekend, off 42%.

Finally, No. 3 47 Meters Down, released by privately held Entertainment Studios, collected around $7.4 million over the weekend.

Scarlett Johansson's Rough Night was down 41% in its second weekend with $4.7 million.

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.

As for next week, all I know about "Baby Driver" is it has 100 percent on the Tomatometer, and Jamie Foxx is in it.
