And that's transformers the last night it's a fifth in the transformers series it cost over 200 million dollars to make. The global opening is actually up on Age of Extinction, which kicked off with $189.1 million on its way to $858.6 million internationally and a $1.104 billion total worldwide.

Though Paramount is not done making Transformers movies, it seems audiences have had enough with watching the legendary Hasbro toys on the big screen. Fans in Asia are taking up the slack with a good turnout that has lifted the 5th movie another $123 Million from China alone.

Transformers: The Last Knight sits at 15% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, but it managed to snag an average score of B+ from ticket buyers according to CinemaScore. Korea was the next highest with $13 million, Russian Federation followed with $8.9 million, and the United Kingdom brought in $5.7 million.

Here are over 20 films worth seeing over the next four months.

Currently, all totted up, Transformers: The Last Knight's gross stands at $265m. Transformers: Age Of Extinction took less money in the U.S. and United Kingdom that its predecessor, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, but it also coined in $300m from China, which saw it become the latest Transformers film to cross $1bn at the global box office. This has already given the movie a global haul of about $265.3 million, compared to its reported budget of $217, not counting marketing. Going into the summer, the big question for China industry watchers was whether Universal's Fast 8 or Paramount's T5 would emerge as 2017's local box-office champ.

A little lower in the top 10 are Cars 3 and Wonder Woman, tied for second place with estimated earnings of $25.2 million each.

Wonder Woman dropped to number two with $41.3 million. Amazon plunked down $12 million for the Judd Apatow-produced Sundance Film Festival hit.

The big news centers on the Gal Gadot-led flick, though: having now taken in more than $300 million domestically, it is now the top-grossing live-action film ever directed by a woman!

"Cars 3" is at $99.9 million.

Coming in fifth was "The Mummy", starring Tom Cruise, which made $5.8 million. In North America, the movie has earned $160 million and internationally it has grossed $517.8 million, for a worldwide total of $677.8 million. The movie is on track for breaking the 1 million mark in attendance, with 989,123 recorded viewers so far.
