Transformers: The Last Knight is out this week in many countries and it is currently tracking to be the least highest grossing Transformers movie in North America.

Paramount Pictures does not have to worry too much because this franchise usually does very well overseas. Countries like China love movies like this.

Anyway, The Hollywood Reporter says Transformers: The Last Knight is tracking to open at the North American Box Office with around $70 to $75 million this weekend.

This is much lower than the $100 million that Transformers: Age of Extinction earned back in 2014. It is also down from the $108 million that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earned back in 2009.

The reason North Americans aren't excited any more is due to the quality of the films.

Nothing has really changed as Michael Bay is still the director and the movies are usually overly long and feature shallow human characters. Not to mention some of the movies focus more on the humans than the actual Transformers themselves.

The Last Knight is instead still expected to make a lot of money overseas. Age of Extinction earned $1.1 billion at the Box Office and was the highest grossing film in 2014.

It made more money than the likes of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men: Days of Future Past just to name a few. The film's success was mainly because it earned well over $300 million in China alone.

Not to mention Hasbro is sure to make a lot more money through toy sales. Each time a new Transformers movie comes out, a slate of new toys hit the market.

Thankfully, The Last Knight is the last Transformers movie to be directed by Michael Bay. In the future, we finally get to see what a different director can do with the franchise.
