For a movie that sparked a hefty of unpleasant reviews, “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction” tops the Global Box Office hit in 2014, as it’s the first film to almost reach the $1 billion profit line. Read further to learn more about this scoop.
“Transformers 4: Age of Extinction” received multiple jabs of disappointing comments from hailed movie critics to active participants of the social media, but that did not stop them from reaching almost $1 billion of profit earnings for their movie franchise. Looks like a high dose of curiosity backed with intense visual effects tramples over the significant element of a worthy story line.
On the report by Movie Pilot, the film has not been taken down completely from theaters worldwide as most of them are still being shown. The sequel “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” seemed to have beaten “Transformers” during its worldwide premiere allotment, earning an early global cume of $242 million. However, it would seem that that’s how far the primate movie will go.
Now on its fourth week in the cinemas, “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction” crossed the $800 million dollar mark and the Paramount Pictures could not be any more happier with the way they were able to successfully create a film that turned out to be their billion-dollar baby according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Critics suggest that this sudden rise of the moviegoers were all due to the comeback of soccer-crazed fans that got too involved in this year’s World Cup. Finally regaining their focus back into the world itself, they now rushed to the theaters in search for the visual phenomenon of a movie that is “Transformers 4.”
The movie about mechanical entities surely holds the title of the first to achieve such gross, but will it be the only film reaching such apex? Probably not. The year has just begun, and there are still a lot of promising films that would cause avid moviegoers to spend more to witness such theatrical glory. Let’s not forget that Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is still keeping its humbleness intact with its fans in heavy anticipation for its worldwide release by the end of July. There are also the powerhouse sequels such as “The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1” and “The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies,” which makes it too early to say that it holds the box office title for 2014.
True enough, when visual effects and intense promotion are concerned, people can easily disregard the quality of the story line and enjoy the film in a full throttle of visual phenomenon. Or perhaps, negative criticisms are now considered as effective marketing strategies these days? Your pick.
That ends the latest update in the billion-dollar gross of “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction.” Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for the latest buzz in the entertainment center.
