Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which is now out in cinemas, proved to be quite popular among audiences. In 68 overseas markets, Paramount’s 7th installment in the blockbuster franchise jumped to a $110m opening weekend. Combined with the domestic figures (US market), the long-awaited return of the Autobots opened to $170.5m, which trumped previous projections of $155m.

However, the film technically underperformed in China. While it opened with $40 million, it was originally projected to make $50m. Despite that, Rise of the Beasts is still the second best start for a hollywood film this year.

On top of that, this is actually the biggest opening weekend for the Transformers franchise in 8 different markets; Indonesia, Argentina, Peru, Vietnam, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt and Bolivia.

While it may not soar to the figures of previous Transformers movies, such as Dark of the Moon which grossed over $1 billion, this opening proves that the Transformers franchise still has fuel in its engine.

Check out the final trailer:

The upcoming sequel, directed by Steven Caple Jr, stars Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, and Luna Lauren Velez. In addition to that, the legend that is Peter Cullen is back to voice the great Optimus Prime alongside Ron Perlman who will voice Optimus Primal, a transforming gorilla and leader of the Maximals.

The cast also includes Peter Dinklage (Scourge), Liza Koshy (Arcee), John DiMaggio (Stratosphere), David Sobolov (Rhinox/Battletrap), Michaela Jaé Rodriguez (Nightbird), Cristo Fernández (Wheeljack), and Tobe Nwigwe (Reek), Michelle Yeoh (Airazor), and Pete Davidson (Mirage).
