    I don't live in the US, so I couldn't give two s**** about the damn box office over there.

    China is gonna make sure this gets another sequel. Praise those bastahs.

    Paramount clearly cares. Hollywood in general gets the biggest part from US box box office (about 55%). With China Hollywood barely gets 25% of that. This is why they're doing so much US promotion.

    Funny thing is that he expects people to listen to him cause he's a gwhiner and wants the movie to fail which it won't

    Doesn't matter if the film fails or succeeds, based entirely on the performance pattern of decline in the films, even if TF5 makes a billion, it will not save Paramount from the deficit it is in. This is simple economics - Paramount itself is in trouble, which by extension means the films because what good is a strong film franchise when it's the only strong performer Paramount has, and the numbers simply don't result in a net profit over the laundry list of failures Paramount's blown money on for a year and a half?

    Ironically this will be the consensus of this film the week after its release date. If not sooner.

    If anyone is mad it seems like it's you. You keep saying it's going to bomb domestically, and that's far from certain. There is almost zero chance of them not making another one, so it's a nonissue how much it makes to me. On the other hand if this movie breaks 300 million domestically I will be laughing my ass off at people declaring the eminent doom for the series because it's impossible for a movie to make more that it's predecessor.

    2016 was Paramount's worst Box Office in 12 years. Calm down. It's not quite at SONY levels yet.

    Even if Bay and Co. are booted from this franchise. HASBRO will never let it just sit there idle.

    This year? Yes, Ghost In the shell, which was the only big budget Paramount film so far. Baywatch is next which will be eclipsed by Wonder Woman its following week.

    If you're talking about last Summer then the reality check is gonna hit you hard. Zoolander2, Turtles2, Ben-hur, Startrek3, and even Jack Reacher2 all flopped.

    Not one of you has bothered to do your own legitimate research instead of labeling me the bad guy. But when you're a diehard fan of a franchise like this I suppose it's necessary.
