‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Tops Foreign Box Office With $81.2 Mil.

Transformers: Age of Extinction” has emerged as the summer’s biggest global smash, racking up another $81.2 million this weekend and dominating the foreign charts.

The Paramount release debuted in seven new territories last weekend including Brazil, where it opened to $16.5 million, Germany with a $11.9 million bow and France with a $8.8 million score. In China, the picture finally seems to be slowing down, dropping 60% in its fourth week of release and adding $9.6 million to its hefty $285.7 million haul.  The picture is a bigger hit in the People’s Republic than it is in the United States.

“Age of Extinction’s” worldwide total stands at $886.2 million.

Coming in at number two, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” scored $61 million while opening in nearly 30 new markets, including the United Kingdom ($14.6 million), Russia ($9.8 million) and Spain ($4.6 million). Its global bounty now clocks in at $241.9 million.

The Chinese tween-skewing romantic comedy “Tiny Times 3.0” grabbed the third slot with a $30 million debut and lived up to a title that roughly translates to “Times of Gold Filligree.”

“The House that Never Dies,” a Chinese haunted mansion thriller, nabbed fourth place with a $21 million bow, while in fifth position, DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2” padded its $386.2 million global total with $14 million foreign take. The animated sequel will open in Germany and Austria next weekend, but the good news for its long-term prospects is that it has secured a coveted opening in China next month.

New releases “Sex Tape” and “Planes: Fire & Rescue” earned $3 million and $9 million respectively, while domestic runner-up “The Purge: Anarchy” racked up $420,000 in a handful of foreign markets.
