Closing In On $300 Million World Wide Opening For Transformers The Last Knight

The Boxoffice numbers are rolling in for the extended weekend that Paramount always uses to prop up their weekend numbers. Starting on Tuesday, the earliest for the Franchise yet. The film has been slow on the uptake with a mere $40 million in sales in North America. Fans in Asia are taking up the slack with a good turnout that has lifted the 5th movie another $123 Million from China alone. With the rest of the International markets leading Paramount to a hopeful $300 million, recovering the $217 Million it cost to make the movie. Read more from report in Variety.
“Transformers: The Last Knight” from Paramount and Hasbro is projected to earn $196.2 million by Sunday from 41 international markets. That, combined with the domestic take of $69.1 million, would put the film’s global opening at $265.3 million.

China is responsible for the bulk of the movie’s earnings. From 7,200 locations, “The Last Knight” should earn $123.4 million this weekend in the Middle Kingdom — the largest opening for a “Transformers” movie.

The next largest territory is Korea, where the movie should gross $13 million from 1,721 locations. Russia should post $8.9 million in earnings from 1,251 spots. Next, in the U.K., “The Last Knight” should pull $5.7 million from 576 locations. To round out the top five, Germany should report $4.7 million in earnings from 611 theaters.

Not bad for a 4th sequel that has had some rough patches, and maybe even better than many expected. However, the BIG question looms - can sales even come close to the $1 Billion mark of the franchise predecessors? It seems unlikely that the momentum is there, but there's clearly more than meets the eye to "The Last Knight." It my have its day after all.
