Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Earns $40 Million in China’s Opening Weekend

“Transformers: The opening weekend of “Rise of the Beasts” brought in $38.9 million (RMB276 million) in mainland China. The score was easily the greatest by any film among Friday and Sunday and the second greatest opening by a Hollywood film this year in the region.

According to information provided by the consulting firm Artisan Gateway, the movie grossed 63% of China’s total gross domestic box office over the weekend.

Giant screen systems provider, Imax announced that the film procured $5.9 million of the all out from its screen network in China, or some 15% of the China complete.

Scores compiled by online sources indicated that fan reactions were very positive. “Rise of the Beasts” received a rating of 9.1 out of ten from users of the ticketing platforms Maoyan and Taopiaopiao. The more affluent Douyin review site gave it a score of 6.3, which was considered to be more average.

Even though the score places “Rise of the Beasts” second only to “Fast X” among this year’s Hollywood openings in China, the numbers still point to a tired franchise and a more challenging environment for U.S. films in China. In contrast, on its opening day in 2017, “Transformers 5” made RMB289 million, or $40.5 million at current exchange rates.

Maoyan currently gauges that “Transformers: During its run in Chinese theaters, “Rise of the Beasts” will only earn RMB596 million (or 84 million US dollars).

The film’s opening, by and by, threw Hollywood a one-two-three at the highest point of the central area Chinese film industry. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” came out on top a week earlier. With a 10-day total of $34.1 million, “Across the Spider-Verse” fell to second place, earning $8.9 million (RMB63.1 million). Quick X” was in third spot with $3.4 million, for a $132 million (RMB936 million) combined since delivering on May 17.

Over the weekend, “Godspeed” from China came in fourth place with $3.1 million, for a total of $158 million (RMB1.12 billion).

Fifth place went to the vintage Studio Ghibli film “Castle on the Sky,” which made $2.5 million. It has procured $15.5 million since hitting Chinese screens on June 1.

Craftsman Passage reports that the end of the week’s $63 million augmentation lifted the year-to-date running film industry absolute to $3.27 billion. That is 46% higher than the disappointing 2022 figure and 20% lower than 2019.
