Well, this comes as no surprise. With just few days left to finish Year 2014, Box-Office Mojo has announced that Transformers: Age Of Extinction is the Highest Grossing Movie Of 2014.
AOE achieved this with a worldwide gross of nearly $1.1 Billion. Second place winner is Guardians of the Galaxy which is closely followed by Maleficent.
Guardian has this to say:“Transformers: Age of Extinction has been named the highest-grossing film of 2014, thanks largely to huge success in China.
The fourth instalment in Michael Bay’s divisive, sci-fi saga took $1.087bn (£690m) around the world. More than $300m came from China, where the film overtook Avatar in July to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. Bay shot Age of Extinction in Hong Kong and hired Chinese stars such as Li Bingbing for supporting roles, thereby helping to encourage local interest.”
Director Michael Bay has also been announced as the “Producer Of The Year”, following the success of Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
