The latest installment for the Transformers franchise hit theaters this weekend and unfortunately for the Hasbro toy based film, it was greeted with a dismal box office showing.
The franchise which began 10 years is now in its fifth film and opened on Friday to $15.6 million, which was also the lowest opening day for all the Transformers films.
However, the film’s box office total of $69.1 million over the course of the weekend still had it land in the number one spot, followed by Cars 3 in second spot and Wonder Woman in third.
Both critics and fans did not seem to be happy with The Last Knight and it currently has a 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with only 58% for the audience score. This isn’t the greatest news when the planned spin-off featuring Bumblebee is set for next year.
