Transformers: Age of Extinction has blitzed the US box office

Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction earned an estimated $100 million across the weekend in the USA - making it the top box office debut of the year.

Similar to what happened in Ireland with Brendan O’Carroll’s Mrs Brown D’Movie, Age of Extinction failed to impress the critics Stateside, but the American public has voted at the box office in overwhelming numbers.

After Transformers, the other top weekend earners in the US were 22 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Think Like a Man Too, and Maleficent.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is due for release in Ireland on Saturday July 5.
