Transformers Age of Extinction has crossed the $1 billion dollar mark. It did so on August 2nd when the foreign box office numbers for the film came in from July 27th, so even though it was official slightly later than Dark of the Moon (July 31st), the mark was crossed at roughly the exact same time. Also it is notable that there were many countries where TF4 was released later due to the World Cup. As of August 3rd, Transformers 4 has totaled $241,206,987 in the US and has just now fallen outside the top 10 (11th) in daily earnings. The movie should come very close to Captain America The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie domestically but only time will tell if it is able to surpass them. Overall, Age of Extinction now sits at $1,005,006,987 worldwide as of August 3rd, which puts it 18th all time. It passed The Dark Knight for that 18th spot yesterday. Transformers 4 has yet to be released in three more countries, including Japan.
Michael Bay is now rumored to return for Transformers 5 after signing a three year extension with Paramount Pictures. This does not necessarily guarantee a return to the director's chair for more Transformers films though. The deal was specifically in regards to Bay's production companies Platinum Dune and Bay Films. The deal could hint towards Bay directing the fifth Transformers film or it could also be for a producer role or even for another Paramount distributed movie.

Transformers: Age of Extinction has finally crossed the $200 million domestic mark as well as the $750 million worldwide mark. According to Sunday estimates from Box Office Mojo, Transformers 4 has reached roughly $209,031,000. For comparisons, at this point Dark of the Moon sat around $278 million and 2014's domestic leader, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, was at $200.5 million. The US box office has definitely not been strong for any movies this year but Transformers is still expected to surpass Captain America to become the highest grossing movie in the US so far this year. Worldwide, Transformers has accumulated roughly $752,531,000 with most foreign countries not reporting since July 6th. At this point in Dark of the Moon's run, it made $705,419,010 so even though TF4 is struggling (compared to past films) in the US, the movie is still making slightly more than the third film overall and has claimed the title as the highest grossing movie worldwide in 2014 so far.

In less than a week Transformers: Age of Extinction has surpassed $400 million worldwide and currently sits at $422,345,000. This number currently includes the $138,345,000 that AOE has taken in domestically after becoming the first movie of 2014 to surpass $100 million in its first weekend, but it does not yet include most of the foreign box office numbers since June 29th. As of July 2nd, the movie actually made more money in China ($134,484,000) than the US and is on its way to become the highest grossing movie in Chinese history after already having the biggest opening weekend in Chinese history. Currently Avatar holds the top spot for the highest grossing film in China. The film is also projected to get a large boost this weekend due to Independence Day in the US, as well as hitting theaters in some more countries, including the UK.
