According to IGN, Michael Bay is stepping down from the Transformers director's chair. Instead, Bay will be directing a drama based off of the novel "Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi" by Mitchell Zuckoff. The film will be a Paramount Pictures production. Stay tuned for more Transformers 5 news as it happens.

TF4 Box Office Report

Transformers Age of Extinction is slowly wrapping up it's fairly short theater run thanks to the push for early home release sales. As of August 26th, Transformers 4 has taken in roughly $243,890,199 domestically and $821,300,000 in international sales as of August 24th. This gives the film a current worldwide total of $1,065,190,199 and the number 12 spot on the all-time box office list, just behind Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Age of Extinction will have to surpass The Dark Knight Rises' $1.084 billion total in order to crack the top 10. Compared to Dark of the Moon, the fourth film has taken in slightly less. The third film obtained a $1.071 billion gross by August 14th, which is more than what TF4 has made to this point. By August 28th in 2011, Dark of the Moon had already made slightly over $1.1 billion.

TF4 Home Release September 30th & VFX Video

You can own Transformers: Age of Extinction on 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy on September 30th in the US or you can get it as early as September 30th if you only get the digital copy. The Blu-Rays will include over 3 hours of special features but so far it seems like there will be no deleted scenes or director commentary. The 3D version will also take advantage of the IMAX format. Multiple stores are having their own special editions of the film which include a Grimlock and Optimus statue (Amazon), 3 non-transformable figures with a magnet (Walmart), transforming case (Target), free poster (FYE), steelbook (Best Buy) and Bumblebee head case (Walmart). Also below check out a preview of one of the special behind the scenes looks that will be on the Blu-Ray.

TF4 Passes $1 Billion, Bay to Return?

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.

Closing in on $1 Billion

As of July 27th, Age of Extinction continues to struggle domestically and has taken in $236,455,028. It is projected to keep its third place position behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie. Worldwide though, the film continues to rake in the money. International markets have accounted for 75.5% (or $730 million) of the film's total gross of $966,455,028 (most countries other than China not reporting since July 20th) and the movie is expected to earn $1 billion within a week. For comparisons, Dark of the Moon (which came out one day later than AOE) reached $926,051,172 on July 27th, 2011 before hitting the $1 billion mark on July 31st.

Transformers Age of Extinction has to to be released in three countries: Japan, Spain (August 8) and Venezuela (August 22).

Age of Extinction Passes TF2

Yesterday, Transformers: Age of Extinction surpassed Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and has become the second highest grossing Transformers film, only behind Dark of the Moon. The film is closing in on $900 million worldwide and is currently sitting at $889,602,608. Once again, as noted before, many of the foreign totals do not come in daily and only a select few have been reported as of yesterday. Domestically as of July 20th, Age of Extinction has raked in $227,002,608 which is definitely a drop from the past three films. It is expected to be the lowest earner of the four Transformers movies and only has about a $2 million advantage over Captain America: The Winter Soldier on a path to possibly becoming the highest domestic earner of 2014. At this point in 2011, Dark of the Moon had totaled $317,369,164, while Age of Extinction is expected to come nowhere close to the $300 million mark. It should finish right around the same spot as Captain America, which finished with $258,591,352 by the end of its 63 day run in theaters. The Chinese have picked up for the domestic slack though as they continues to add more and more to their highest grossing movie record. Their current total is roughly $285,700,000 and it could possibly reach $300 million before its run is over. Overall, TF4 is doing better worldwide that Dark of the Moon, which took in $813,374,967 this far into its theatrical run, a difference of about $76 million. The third Transformers film reached the $1 billion mark on July 31st, 2011. Also remember that Age of Extinction has yet to open in multiple countries, including Japan.
