The robots in disguise are back and yet again they dominated the box office.

In at number 1 is Transformers: Age of Extinction (read our review) with $100 million. That’s good enough for the biggest opening of the year, besting Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s $95 million tally in April.

Age of Extinction also opened huge overseas – $201 million in total – including a record-breaking $90 million debut in China. Clearly the decision to give China a ‘major role’ in the film paid off for Paramount, as Transformers 4 now has the biggest opening for a foreign-made film.

Obviously, it’s a little too early to tell but it looks like Transformers: Age of Extinction should make a run at $1 billion worldwide (about $300 million domestic) when all is said and done. In other words, don’t expect this mega franchise to go away any time soon.

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill College Days in 22 Jump Street Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: June 29th, 2014


22 Jump Street held onto the number 2 spot with $15.4 million. Now at $139 million domestic, the comedy sequel has already passed its predecessor, in only three weeks, and seems poised to take the title of top 2014 comedy.

Coming in at number 3 is How to Train Your Dragon 2 with $13.1 million. DreamWorks’ animated sequel is losing its footing on the box office much quicker than anyone expected, especially for such a well-received family-friendly movie. Still, the film has made $121 million domestic and $227 million worldwide.

Dropping to number 4 this weekend is Think Like a Man Too with $10.4 million. After taking quite a tumble in its second week (64% percent), Think Like a Man Too is unlikely to top its predecessor, but it has grossed a respectable $48 million so far.

Angelina Jolie in Maleficent1 Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: June 29th, 2014


Rounding out the top 5 is Maleficent with $8.2 million. Disney’s live-action adaptation just barely crossed the $200 million mark this weekend, and has grossed $585 million worldwide.

In at number 6 is Jersey Boys with $7.6 million. Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical continues to struggle and has only grossed $27 million so far.

Edge of Tomorrow comes in at number 7 with $5.2 million, which brings its domestic total up to a disappointing – both for the summer season and for a typical Tom Cruise action flick – $84 million. But, the film has grossed $318 million worldwide, so there’s a silver lining.

Coming in at number 8 is The Fault in Our Stars with $4.8 million. The YA adaptation crossed the $100 million mark this week and is now up to $109 million.

X Men Days of Future Past Wolverine drinking Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: June 29th, 2014


The number 9 film this weekend is X-Men: Days of Future Past with $3.3 million. With $223 million domestic and $712 million worldwide, Days of Future Past is now the highest grossing global release of 2014, surpassing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($703M) and Captain America 2 ($711M). But with Transformers 4 already halfway there, we suspect X-Men won’t have the title for too long.

Rounding out the top 10 is Chef with $1.6 million. Yet again, Jon Favreau’s indie flick continues to hold on, and is now up to $19 million.

Outside the top 10: Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer (read our review) opened with $162,100 on 8 screens for a $20,263 per-screen-average.

[NOTE: These are only weekend box office estimates – based on Friday and Saturday ticket sales coupled with adjusted expectations for Sunday. Official weekend box office results will be released on Monday, June 30th – at which time we’ll update this post with any changes.]
