‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ to set China box office record

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Transformers: Age of Extinction has been setting box office records around the world and has now set a new record in China.

The film has already made an estimated $134 million in China. China is one of the world's biggest movie markets and Transformers, which features locations in China and actors from the country, has made almost as much as the film has grossed in the United States. The fourth film in the movie franchise has made an estimated $149 million in the United States, New York Daily News reported.

The movie is on pace to beat out Avatar, which earned $218 million in China back in 2010 when it was released. Avatar was the biggest earner at the Chinese box office until the recent Transformers, when more than half of the 20,000 movie screens in China showed Transformers over the weekend.

Forbes reported that Transformers: Age of Extinction has made over $575 million worldwide at the box office.

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