Box Office: ‘Transformers 5’ Stumbles With $8.1 Million Thursday
“Transformers: The Last Knight” is looking very creaky as it lumbers towards its opening weekend.
The fifth film in the robots series picked up $8.1 million on Thursday, bringing its domestic gross to $23.7 million after two days of release. At this pace, “Transformers: The Last Knight” will just top $60 million in the the first five days of its release. That’s a dramatic slide from the $100 million that the most recent installment, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” racked up over its first three days of release when it hit theaters in 2014.
Michael Bay Movies Ranked From Worst to Best
It’s also a sign that the long-running franchise, which kicked off a decade ago, may be showing its age. It joins the likes of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Alien: Covenant” in the ranks of film series that are running out of steam this summer.
Like the previous films, this “Transformers” is directed by Michael Bay. It brings back “Age of Extinction” star Mark Wahlberg and pairs him with Anthony Hopkins. “The Last Knight” pits humans versus robots, with Wahlberg and Hopkins searching the Transformers’ secret history for clues to save the world. This being a Bay film, there’s a healthy amount of visual bombast.
The muted response is bad news for Paramount. The studio could use a hit after suffering a string of bombs such as “Ghost in the Shell” and “Baywatch.”
With domestic audiences cooling on the film, “The Last Knight” will lean heavily on foreign crowds. To that end, the film opens in 41 international markets beginning Friday. They include such heavy-hitting territories as China, the United Kingdom, Russia, Australia, Germany, and Korea.
All those action didn’t come cheap. The film carries a hefty $217 million price tag.

‘All Eyez on Me’ Sparks Copyright Lawsuit Over Tupac Articles
Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t the only one who isn’t thrilled about the new Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez on Me.” Lionsgate, Morgan Creek Productions and others have been slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Kevin Powell, who alleges that the film infringes on a series of articles he wrote about Shakur for Vibe magazine in the 1990s.

James Corden and Seth Rogen Deliver Pizza to Unsuspecting L.A. Residents
Thursday’s “Late Late Show” sketch “Mystery Pizza Box” did, however, come with a catch. The comedic duo offered customers a choice between sticking with the pizza they’ve ordered, from L.A.’s own Prime Pizza, or taking whatever was in the mystery pizza box.
All three deliveries chose the latter option — with “prizes” ranging from a box with a heaping portion of marinara sauce, front-row seats to an impromptu wrestling match, and an epic Instagram-worthy birthday party. »

'All Eyez on Me' Prompts Journalist to Admit Having "Embellished" Tupac Articles
Journalists are supposed to be factual. Then again, copyright law doesn't protect the naked recitation of historical facts. Alas, a quandry showcased in a new lawsuit against Lionsgate, Morgan Creek and others associated with All Eyez on Me, the biopic about the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.
In a complaint filed on Friday in New York federal court, Kevin Powell claims the movie infringes upon several of his articles for Vibe Magazine published in the 1990s. But again, if Shakur's life events are in the public domain, how does a journalist possibly get around copyright limitations to sue filmmakers who tread similar »
