Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth film in the Michael Bay franchise, has been getting completely awful reviews (even though Mark Wahlberg > Shia LaBoeuf, obviously), but that doesn't seem to be slowing it down.
The big-budget flick has taken in over $40 million this weekend already and is looking to be the first to hit $100 million in its opening weekend this year. Godzilla made $93 million in its first weekend, topped only by Captain America: The Winter Solider's $95 million.
Transformers currently has an 18% rating on Rotten Tomatoes; Vulture called it "brain-freezing." Peter Travers at Rolling Stone said it's "the worst and most worthless Transformers movie yet." The Toronto Star just cut to the chase: "It's long, it's loud and it's really stupid." But our personal favorite has to be Soren Anderson from the Seattle Times. "Hello, police? I'd like to report an assault."
But we suppose Bay will have the last laugh, because he is going to make a ridiculous amount of money. The second-place movie so far this weekend is the much-better-reviewed 22 Jump Street, which has already topped the gross of 21 Jump Street in just three weeks.
