Worst-performing live-action 'Transformers' film tops box office

BO Report: The latest 'Transformers' again shows a tiring with franchises

It looks like audiences - or Western ones, at least - may finally be tiring of the Transformers franchise, with the latest instalment Transformers: The Last Knight debuting to a series low at the US box office, grossing a $69.1 million five-day opening, and just $45.3 million across the Friday to Sunday period. In particular, it was huge in China, where it grossed US$123.4 million - the biggest opening for any Transformers film there.

Buena Vista and Warner Bros. have each estimated that their top performers finished the weekend with $25.1 million, so until the actuals are announced later today, "Cars 3" and "Wonder Woman" are tied for second place. It's nearest competition at the box office, '#Wonder Woman', continued on its record-setting pace. Lionsgate is handling the theatrical release. Likewise: Russia and the United Kingdom: $14.6M vs over $20M; Germany: $4.7M vs $11.1M; Australia: $3.6M vs $8.3M.

The top 20 titles collectively minted $17 million last weekend, down 5 per cent on the previous frame, according to Numero. With another $7.4 million in the tank, the underwater shark thriller has a ten-day total of $24.2 million. Now, attention is turned toward a trio of releases next weekend, as the box office hopes for a shot in the arm from "Despicable Me 3", "Baby Driver", and "The House". That's a grand total of $258 million for the weekend, and a reminder that the dunder-headed dialogue and nonsensical narratives of these Transformers flicks matter naught; that stuff doesn't translate anyway. With early Oscar buzz, expect to see the film do well when it expands wide in the coming weeks. For a $5 million movie that was nearly released straight to video last August, I'd say that's very good.

That figure has held with the release of the new movie, which has already earned an estimated $196.2 million overseas.

Sixth place belonged to Universal Pictures' The Mummy, which added $5.84 million for a three-week total of $68.5 million. Comping to another recent franchise fifthquel, Last Knight came in 40% above Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, per Par.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is the #9 film with $4.2 million. The Sofia Coppola-directed film (which is based on the 1971 novel of the same name) opened earned an estimated $240,545 from four locations for a per-screen average of $60,138. Although the film lost no Middle Kingdom screens between Saturday and Sunday, folks simply didn't turn up - and daily growth was also stymied in other hubs contrary to typical patterns on a movie that was teed up for overseas, and China in particular.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was down 41% in its eighth weekend with $3 million, bringing its totals to $380.2 million domestically and $851.2 million worldwide.

"Alien: Covenant", $2.3 million.
