Box Office: Autobots debut with impressive roll out

See also

Transformers: Age of Extinction” was the only new debut this past weekend, but that’s fine because there is plenty to choose from in theaters. After all, summer brings in a lot of films. There’s romance in “The Fault in Our Stars,” kid-friendly “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” and the older audience can take a trip back in time with “Jersey Boys.” Even superheroes are around in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

It’s summer, so with plenty of time on their hands, audiences tend to visit the movie theater. Do audiences want or have over three hours to spare sitting at the theater though? That’s how long the new “Transformers” installment is. Up to now, it seems like yes, movie fans do and want to catch this long flick in theaters.

The Autobots rolled out with an estimated $100 million, the highest opening of the year so far. Pretty impressive, considering the franchise’s tendency to have an inconsistent storyline and how much the critics dissed this chapter. Below are the top 10 movies of the weekend, Friday, June 27 through Sunday, June 29.

  1. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” $100 million
  2. 22 Jump Street” $15.4 million
  3. “How to Train Your Dragon 2” $13 million
  4. “Think Like a Man Too” $10.4 million
  5. “Maleficent” $8.2 million
  6. “Jersey Boys” $7.6 million
  7. “Edge of Tomorrow” $5.2 million
  8. “The Fault in Our Stars” $4.8 million
  9. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” $3.3 million
  10. “Chef” $1.6 million
