'Transformers: Age of Extinction' is China's top grossing film of all time

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Transformers: Age of Extinction is now the highest grossing film of all time in China.

The movie was on pace to beat out Avatar, which earned $218 million in China back in 2010. Age of Extinction, which was only released ten days ago, has already made $222.7 million in ticket sales, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed.

Transformers: Age of Extinction in China has now overtaken box office numbers in North America. The film has a strong influence from China, including locations and Chinese actors in the Transformers film.

The movie was seen on 338,793 screens with 17.72 million admissions since it has been released.

As a whole, the movie has made $575.6 million in its first 12 days in release. Over $400 million of that grossing total comes from overseas ticket sales.

It took Avatar two months to gross $218 million at the box office, compared to the ten days it took Transformers to break the record, The Guardian reported.

Transformers: Age of Extinction stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, and Kelsey Grammer.
