"Transformers: Age Of Extinction" is a really exciting movie which features a new leading man in Mark Wahlberg, who has replaced the very troubled Shia LaBeouf. It's also hot overseas where it earned another $52 million on Friday for an initial international total of $80 million and a huge worldwide total of $121.6 million. This weekend is seeing the debut of the film in giant markets in China, Australia and Russia. On Friday alone it had the biggest opening day of all time for a foreign film in China as it took in $30 million. The movie shot some scenes at the Great Wall in China.

It really does appear "Transformers: Age of Extinction" could be the first film this year to make $100 million at the box office on the opening weekend reports Business Insider. A few other Hollywood movies have come close to this mark for their first weekend with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" earning $95 million, "Godzilla" earning $93.2 million and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" earning $91.6 million. Last year "Iron Man 3" went over the $100 million mark the first weekend of May. In 2012, "The Hunger Games" earned more than $150 million the opening weekend in March. This makes the future for Hollywood action movies look very promising.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" has its beginning after an epic battle left a great city torn to pieces but with the world saved reports Rotten Tomatoes. Humanity works hard to pick up the pieces of the ashes of war as a shadowy group reveals an attempt to control the direction of world history. An ancient, powerful new menace now threatens the stability of earth. Optimus Prime and the Autobots come forth to meet their most brutal challenge ever as an incredible war of good versus evil emerges ultimately leading to a climactic battle which spreads across the entire world. This theme is really intriguing and has fans spellbound.
