Utah Video Production Blog 41: Transformers 4 Sets All-time Box Office Record in China

Michael Bay publicly blew off the critics who excoriated Transformers: Age of Extinction, and he’s laughing all the way to the bank. Not only did the fourth film in the franchise win the domestic box-office for the second week in a row, but it has already surpassed Avatar to become the biggest box-office hit in Chinese history.

After 10 days in Chinese theaters, Age of Extinction grossed more than $221 million—$46 million more than it has made in the U.S.

The phenomenal success in China is no accident.
