411 Box Office Report: Transformers: Age of Extinction Dominates For #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.29.2014

It was all about giant robots at the box office this weekend, as Transformers: Age of Extinction destroyed the box office for the #1 spot. The fourth film in Michael Bay's Transformers franchise opened with $100 million, the first film of 2014 to do so. While that number may be adjusted down a bit in the final numbers, it is still very probably the best opening of the year. The previous high was Captain America: The Winter Soldier's $95 million. Transformers scored very nicely considering the length of the film limiting the number of showings possible, averaging $23,624 from 4,233 theaters. The number is ahead of the third film's $97.8 million in 2011. Critics hated it with a 17% Rotten Tomatoes score but audiences liked it, giving it an A- CinemaScore. The film added $201.3 million overseas for a huge $301.3 million worldwide opening from a $210 million budget. A domestic number around the $350 million range is likely.

Holding on strongly at #2 was 22 Jump Street. The police comedy brought in $15.4 million, holding pretty decently at 44% from last week. The film has now grossed $139.8 million domestically and $178 worldwide off of a $50 million budget; passing the $200 million domestic mark is still a good possibility. The budget was $50 million.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 also held on, staying steady at #3 with $13.1 million. The film is looking likely to finish with around $175 million or so depending on where it goes from here. The film has now grossed $121.8 million domestically and $227.9 million worldwide from a $145 million budget.

Think Like a Man Too dropped hard in its second weekend, down three to #4. The romcom sequel brought in $10.4 million for a nasty 64% drop. The drop is only slightly less than About Last Night's 71% drop earlier this year and is way head of the first film's 48% fall. At this point the film is likely for a $75 million final gross or so, which will be fine considering the $24 million budget.

Maleficent held onto the #5 spot in its fifth week, bringing in $8.2 million. The Angelina Jolie-led Disney film has now grossed $201.9 million domestically and $585.6 million worldwide on a budget of $180 million. It's the fourth-highest grosser of the year both worldwide and domestically and is looking for a $220 final number.

Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys was down two spots to #6 in its second week, pulling in $7.6 million. The film had a 43% drop, which is comparable to Hairspray's 2007 drop and ahead of the 47% second-weekend drop of Rock of Ages. It's a sold number for a musical but considering the low early gross of its opening weekend, no one at Warner Bros. is smiling about it. The film should finish with around $40 million which would be the same as its budget.

Edge of Tomorrow fell one spot in its fourth week, ending at #7 with $5.2 million. The sci-fi actioner has a four-week gross domestically of $84.2 million and a total worldwide gross of $302.5 million from a $178 million budget. The film has an outside shot at $100 million domestically at this point.

The Fault in Our Stars was down one to #7 in its fourth weekend with $4.8 million. The film has hit $109.5 million domestically and $194.8 million worldwide from a $12 million budget. The final gross will end up around $125 million stateside.

X-Men: Days of Future Past dropped a rung to #9 in its sixth frame with $3.3 million. The film has now grossed $223.4 million domestically and $712.7 million worldwide from a $200 million budget. The film is now the highest-grossing film of 2014 worldwide and should finish off at about $230 million, just short of X-Men: The Last Stand's $234.4 million.

Jon Favreau's Chef was steady at #10 in its sixth weekend with $1.7 million, down only 3% from last week. The culinary comedy has totaled $19.4 million to date. It should finish off with between $25 million to $30 million.

The weekend box office tally was $175.6 million, down 8% from last year's take of $190.7 million which was led by Monsters University's $45.6 million second weekend and The Heat's $39.1 million bow.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
