Transformers: Rise of the Beasts took the top spot at the box office in its first weekend. It made $60.5 million in American sales from Friday to Sunday, which was about $6 million more than Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse did in its second weekend in theatres.
The new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts movie did better outside of the United States. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it brought in $110 million in its first weekend, $40 million of which came from China alone.
Rise of the Beasts hopes to make more money in its first week than “The Last Knight” did in its first week. But robots that look like people don’t come cheap. The movie will have to be good enough to support a budget of around $200 million.
The big play for Paramount is abroad, where more than 70% of ticket sales for the last three films in the series came from. So far, the new part has made $43.3 million in 68 countries around the world.
“Rise of the Beasts” stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. Pete Davidson, Ron Perlman, Michelle Yeoh, Liza Koshy, Peter Dinklage, and Peter Cullen, who has been the voice of Optimus Prime for a long time, are among the voice actors for the CGI cars that fight for freedom.
The ride was driven by “Creed II” director Steven Caple Jr. The story takes place in the 1990s and shows the audience the Maximals and Terrorcons, two ancient groups of Transformers that can change into robot animals.
