Transformers: Age of Extinction


Looking ahead to next week get ready for round four in the "Transformers" saga as "Age Of Extinction" opens unopposed.  The original TF opened to $70 million in 2007 but the last two opened right around $100 million.  This is Paramount's first big title of the summer so look for the company to throw everything but the kitchen sink at the film, marketing wise. Plus it also has the added benefit of being available in all premium formats such as Imax, 3D, D-Box and will surely play on all of the exhibitor large screen format theatres as well.

There are also some rather interesting indie titles next week, led by Radius/TWC's "Snowpiercer", which recently opened the Los Angeles Film Festival.  The sci-fi actioner stars Chris Evans, Jamie Bell and Tilda Swinton.  Radius invariably makes their titles available on VOD simultaneously with theatrical but not this time around.  The company will release the film in 10 markets next weekend with a July 3rd expansion into 150 theatres planned.

Whitey

At the top of Box Office Insider's list for next week is Magnolia's theatrical/VOD day-and-date release "Whitey: The United States Vs. James J. Bulger", the story of legendary Boston crime figure and FBI informant Whitey Bulger.

Lastly, Weinstein offers up the promising comedy "Begin Again" from director John Carney ("Once"), which stars Mark Ruffalo as a disgraced music executive who teams up with singer Keira Knightley.  Adam Levine and Hailee Steinfeld co-star.
