Transformers: The Last Knight made almost $200 million internationally for the weekend, mostly thanks to China, and since then passed $300 million worldwide.
Transformers: The Last Knight pulled $199.2 million from 41 markets, opening in 1st in all but one. As expected The Last Knight performed best in China where the 5th Transformers movie had the biggest debut yet for the series, $125.3 million. After 7 days the film has $166.9 million in China, which is very good, but still extremely unlikely to ever come close to the $320 million made by the last one over there. Other big openers for Transformers: The Last Knight were South Korea ($12.9 million), Russia ($8.5 million), the UK ($5.9 million) and Germany ($4.9 million). The film premiered only yesterday in France and has yet to hit Brazil, Mexico, Spain and Japan. I’d say $700 million worldwide is probably the most we’ll see from The Last Knight.
Wonder Woman took 2nd place with $21.7 million. The DCEU film now has $335.8 million internationally and $663.6 million worldwide, making Wonder Woman the highest grossing movie directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins). Previously Mamma Mia! (Phyllida Lloyd) had the record with $609.8 million. Going back to the DCEU, Wonder Woman is in the process of overtaking Man of Steel ($668 million) and next up is one Suicide Squad with $745.6 million. I would say that’s maybe too high, but so far Wonder Woman surpassed all expectations so who really knows. It might eventually make it to $750 million worldwide.
The Mummy moved $17.9 million in 3rd. While very much a bomb domestically, The Mummy is in better shape internationally with $275.2 million and counting. China is The Mummy‘s biggest market with $90.8 million 21 days. After that there’s South Korea ($26 million) followed by Russia ($14.9 million), Brazil and Mexico (both around $11.7 million). Worldwide the not-so-horror has $346.4 million, but really it’s past $350 million by now. Even so it’s still behind the last three Mummy movies. Since the only big market left for The Mummy is Japan, I doubt it can climb much higher than $400 million, more or less what The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor made 9 years ago.
Cars 3 came in 4th with $12.6 million, climbing to a very early $42.1 million international total from 26 markets. The animation is still looking ahead to starts in Brazil, South Korea, Spain, UK, Japan, France, Italy, Germany and many more. Currently at $150.8 million worldwide, Cars 3 has a long way to go and it might finish its box office run somewhere between $450 million and $550 million, in line with its predecessors.
Baywatch rounds out the top 5 with $11.2 million. The R-rated comedy is currently sitting at $80.9 million internationally and $137.9 million worldwide.
