Transformers wows the world

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .


Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" grossed $301.3 million worldwide, including an estimated $100 million in North America. 
Rentrak, which tracks the box office, says that is the biggest opening weekend of the year and the first over $100 million. Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Rentrak, suggests "this solidifies Mark Wahlberg's position as one of the most consistently bankable stars working today."
