This weekend sees the return of those robots in disguise. But will a fifth film be too much for audiences? Here’s our prediction:
Transformers: The Last Knight is managing to keep the franchise tradition with some absolutely horrible reviews; the film currently sits at a 16% score at Rotten Tomatoes. Usually, this films are critic proof, but its been a while since Michael Bay actually delivered a good Transformers film (some would suggest he’s never actually accomplished that feat). Transformers: The Last Knight opened this past Wednesday with an underwhelming $15 million. Decent for the middle of the week, but far from blockbuster numbers. Consider the bloom off the rose for Transformers. While the film will top the weekend, it will be with a lacklustre $43 million.
As for the rest of the top five, Cars 3 will fall to second place with $30 million. Wonder Woman will be in third place with $28 million. All Eyez On Me will land in fourth with $12 million, while The Mummy will close things out in fifth place with $6 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Transformers: The Last Knight – $43 million
2) Cars 3 – $30 million
3) Wonder Woman – $28 million
4) All Eyez On Me – $12 million
5) The Mummy – $6 million
