June 23 Weekend Roundup: 'Transformers' Opens to Series Low
Transformers: The Last Knight opened at a franchise low, domestically: $68.5M over five days, even with impressive numbers internationally as expected. Transformers series continues to remain profitable with even more sequels and spin-offs to follow, notwithstanding the continued abysmal critical reactions.
The below chart shows our forecasts (lower bound, mean, upper bound) from last Friday next to several other industry forecasts and actual performance.
