Michael Bay's films may not get the best critical reviews, but you cannot deny that the man knows how to create films that make money. Simply insane amounts of money.
According to Deadline, Transformers: Age Of Extinction has now made over $1 billion in worldwide sales, making it the second film in the Transformers franchise to cross that threshold after the third film, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, made $1.12 billion in 2011.
So far, Transformers: Age Of Extinction has made $1.005 billion. However, with only $241.2 million coming from American theaters, Age Of Extinction had the lowest domestic total of all the films in the series. $763.8 million came in from overseas.
The film did especially well in China where, last week, it became the first film to ever earn more than $300 million.
