Everything is going better than the producers of this film were even hoping for!
Mark Wahlberg may earn his prediction mark that he'll be the highest grossing movie star this year if his latest movie keeps doing as well as it is!
Michael Bay's fourth installment of the robot franchise, Transformers: Age Of Extinction, had been hoping to hit the $100M mark for its first domestic weekend, and the film's already made $41.6M just this past Friday!!!
Which has already earned the title of the biggest opening single day in the year 2014!!
The blockbuster movie is playing in 4,233 U.S. and Canadian theaters on its first weekend, and yet still Paramount was nervously optimistic about the movie, with a $210M budget, and its chances to just even hit a goal of a mid $90M weekend.
Well, those movie producers should be feeling a lot better since their HUGE opening day puts them on pace to beat the Transformers 3 movie which had a $97.8M opening weekend gross. So that $100M domestic weekend goal is definitely in sight!!!
The film also has a A- Cinemascore which means that the public enjoys this action romp fest A LOT more than the dismissive critics of this film.
Show 'em how wrong they are, Marky Mark!!!
