Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Transformers The Last Knight - Theatrical Run Post-Mortem
ExVee - Sunday, August 27, 2017


According to Box Office Mojo, Transformers: The Last Knight has wrapped up its run in at least US theatres as of Thursday, August 24, having clocked in just slightly over 9 weeks on the big screens domestically. Some international markets where the movie opened later may still run for a little while yet, but it's nearing the end of the line. This means that we have a pretty concrete idea of where the final theatrical numbers are going to land. And by this point, there's really no surprises to be had. Keep reading to find out the score...

Box office Mojo's reports show The Last Knight ending domestically with just a hair over $130 million. For reference, the production budget of the movie is estimated at $217 million. For reference, when last we talked about the budget versus domestic ticket sales for the movie, it was July 21, at which point it had only pulled in about $127 million. Over its entire final month it pulled in barely $3 million.

International figures are certainly better, accounting for $473 million of what has become a worldwide total of around $604 million as of the time of this writing. A stronger take from the foreign box office is expected, but there is no denying that numbers on both sides are proportionately much lower than desired. And with the extensive advertising campaign the movie saw in the weeks prior to its release, the costs associated are surely even higher than just the estimated production budget, meaning the profitability of the fifth Transformers movie could very well be the lowest for the entire series to date.

For the sake of the franchise as we've come to know it over the last decade, let's hope Bumblebee fares quite a bit better when it launches in December 2018.

A major part of Walmart's exclusive Autobots Unite subline during the run of The Last Knight Premier Edition, Deluxe Hot Rod never really turned up in any stores - nor did the majority of the rest of that sub-branding, which found its way to discount retailers a few months back. Premier Edition Hot Rod is now following suit, with a reported find at Ross in the Los Angeles area priced at $8.99, according to Gepard. Hot Rod was available via Walmart's website, starting at $20 and gradually rising in price as time went on. Ross distribution can be hit and miss, but at this price it may be worth keeping an eye out!
Thanks to Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some (literally) in-hand photos of the quad barrel shotgun accessory that was the subject of the latest TakaraTomy marketing campaign in Japan. Customers buying 4000 yen worth of qualifying Transformers merchandise at participating retailers would receive the quad barrel shotgun, itself a reuse of one of Hound's many weapons originally from the Age of Extinction toy, painted in Optimus Prime inspired deco. You can click through to see Alfes2010's photos showing a few different figures using the special weapon.
Planet Iacon has shared some in-hand images of the TakaraTomy Quad-Barrel Shotgun Japanese campaign exclusive. The "Quad-Barrel Shotgun" is a movie replica from "Transformer The Last Knight", a gun that Optimus Prime used while brainwashed in the violent fight scene against Bumblebee. Check out the exclusive weapon along with the poster and accompanying literature below.
So it's generally accepted that Transformers: The Last Knight One-step Changers (known as Speed Change Transformers in Japan) aren't the most impressive of figures. But, what about one that is made from the ground up by one person, entirely out of cardboard? Thanks to DIY Japan on YouTube, we can now answer this question: it is much, much cooler.
