The latest "Transformers" should be titled Age of Victory.

1 Aug – "Transformers: Age of Extinction" has managed to break yet another local box office record in just five weeks of release upon collecting more than RM41 million according to Box Office Mojo.

Having previously made it as Malaysia's biggest box office opening weekend of all-time, beating out previous record holders including all three of the previous "Transformers" films, the fourth installment in the "Transformers" franchise has once again broken records by securing the top spot on the list of the top five films of all-time in this country.

The film managed to knock down "Iron Man 3", which settles at number two, followed by "Transformers: Dark of The Moon", "The Avengers" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2".

To compare, the box office sales of the movie is 72 percent more than "Avatar", 55 percent more than "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", 52 percent more than "Thor: The Dark World" and 27 percent more than "The Avengers".

According to Box Office Mojo, the film's total gross as of 20 July is approximately RM41.6 million. The figure to date is yet to be confirmed but it is expected to experience a substantial growth as the recent Hari Raya holidays saw many moviegoers visiting the cinemas to watch the film.

United International Pictures Malaysia Managing Director Nicholas Yong says, "We are very happy and thankful that the Transformers franchise has once again proven to be a powerhouse in this country and that local audiences still like the robots, action and amazing special effects this movie offers."
