'Transformers: The Last Knight' Opens to Franchise Low $69.1 Million

'Transformers: The Last Knight' Opens to Franchise Low $69.1 Million

And yet, I expect "Baby Driver" to make less in its entire run than "Transformers 5" does on its opening weekend.

What I saw, however, isn't easy to explain as I found it hard to follow as a newcomer to the series despite some now very outdated knowledge of the original comics. As a fan of the toys and the tv show as a kid I get no enjoyment from the films as an adult. As a child I had numerous series' toys and adored the animated series.

It makes other bad movies look good.

. After "Pain and Gain" I was like, 'Whatever you want to do. I'm not an Autobot, after all, or even a Wahlberg - I'm only human.

Something about the experience of viewing one of Michael Bay's fighting-robot movies renders the viewer objectively dumber afterwards.

"The Beguiled", Sofia Coppola's latest movie (released by Focus Features), followed up its successful Cannes Film Festival world premiere, in which Coppola won the best director prize, by taking in $241,000 over the weekend.

After three successful movies, however, LaBeouf made a decision to step away from the world.

I did, however, find the amount of swearing in The Last Knight entirely unnecessary for something that should be a kids property.

Mars and Beyonce will also compete for album of the year , video director of the year and the viewer's choice award . Comedian Leslie Jones , known for her work on " Saturday Night Live " will be hosting the star-studded night.


The superheroine movie, now in its fourth week of release, has earned $318.4 million Stateside and $652.9 million globally. The first film was not bad. It introduced the Autobots and Decepticons to those on earth in a way that worked quite well.

While several cast members of the "Pirates" franchise have hinted that there could be more films in the future, the studio does not now have any plans for a sixth installment. The same can not be said about Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, which are regarded as something between messy and boring, two qualities that do not befit Michael Bay's filmography.

But don't worry; if for some reason the drawn-out and incoherent battle scenes are what you liked about the earlier films, the climactic one here is still both of those things.

Get to the fifth installment of a film series, especially a sci-fi action one with a reputation for mindless bloat, and you can generally assume you'll be looking at the franchise's most terrible offering yet.

But while Wahlberg isn't sure about his return, Josh Duhamel, who reprises his role as Colonel William Lennox, says he'd come back for another Transformers film on one condition. It's La Beouf's final time out in the franchise, with Fox being replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as his love interest.

If the latest Transformers film outperforms the franchise average, the series will vault into 14th place on the top franchise list, with a total adjusted gross of $1.95 billion. This is a revamp of the franchise, dropping actors previously involved and going in a new direction.

So up next is The Last Knight, which I'm eager to see. Breaking news, severe weather, daily forecasts, entertainment news, all of the day's important events to keep you up to date wherever you are.
