TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Breaks Record in China!

Transformers4-China

Welcome to the future: Paramount’s China has revealed that Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age of Extinction posted a $30 million opening day including Thursday previews, which, according to sources in the People’s Republic, puts it on pace to do at least $80 million opening weekend–Iron Man 3 previously held the record with $64.5 million.

The Paramount tentpole Transformers 4 could surpass the $221.9 million that Avatar made during its Chinese release, which was a record total for a U.S. film.

The notion that  the first Transformers movie to not feature Shia LaBeouf can open above $90 million in North America and China at the same time is amazing.

The Transformers sequel had the biggest opening day of the year in the U.S. with an estimated $41.6 million at Friday’s box office including $8.8 million in Thursday night showings.

It’s reportedly on track to generate $100 million-plus by Sunday for the best debut of 2014.
