‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ becomes first film of 2014 to earn around 1 billion dollars. The Paramount title was now all but assured of becoming a billion-dollar baby by the end of its run, as it crossed over the 800 million dollars mark globally in its fourth weekend, the Hollywood Reporter reported. Beginning its post-World Cup assault, sequel ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ almost beat ‘ Transformers: Age of Extinction’ to win the global weekend race with 97 million dollars for an early global cume of 242 million dollars.

Age of Extinction opened to huge numbers in soccer-crazed markets where moviegoers were previously distracted by the now-completed World Cup, including Brazil, where it earned 16.5 million dollars. And in Germany, winner of the soccer championship, the movie launched to 11.2 million dollars, the biggest start of the year so far.

China continues to make Age of Extinction the No. 1 film of all time and film’s biggest market, with massive earn of 285.7 million dollars. However, two new Chinese movies, ‘Tiny Times 3.0’ and ‘The House That Never Dies’, beat it over the weekend, grossing 30 million dollars and 21 million dollars, respectively, compared to 9.6 million dollars for Age of Extinction.
