Transformers a ‘dubious success’
Michael Bay’s Transformers:
The Last Knight topped the box office charts, but it was a dubious success. The fifth installment in the series took in a franchise low of $68.5 million in its first five days in theaters, $44.7 million of which came from weekend sales. In second place, Wonder
Woman took in an additional $24.9 million in its fourth weekend in theaters, pushing the superhero pic over the $300 million mark. It beat out Disney and Pixar’s Cars 3, which fell to $24.1 million in its second weekend, bringing its domestic totally to $98.8 million.
Rounding out the top five were the Mandy Moore shark thriller 47 Meters Down in fourth place with $7.1 million, and The Mummy, in fifth place, with $6.1 million.
