The Bottom Line: June 23rd, 2017

Michael Bay is back with another explosion-fest in Transformers: The Last Knight. Find out how it will do in this week’s edition of The Bottom Line!

Box Office Top Five

Cars 3 topped the box office with $53.7 million. Wonder Woman dropped to number two with $41.3 million. All Eyez On Me took third with $26.5 million, while The Mummy dropped to fourth with $14.6 million. 47 Meters Down rounded out the top five with $11.3 million.

A Closer Look at Some of this Week’s Films.

Transformers: The Last Knight (PG-13) 149 mins.

You already know whether you’re going to like Transformers: The Last Knight are not. These movies have been pretty terrible since at least the second one, and it looks like this is no exception. It’s tracking to open smaller in the US than previous films have, but expect it to still make a buttload of cash and open at number one, anyway.

The Beguiled (R) 94 mins.

Sofia Coppola’s remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood film has been getting strong reviews and has a great cast that consists of Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning. It’s only opening in a few theaters so don’t expect to see it in the top five, but it’ll be well worth seeing if you can.

The Bottom Line

Transformers will open at number one, while Cars 3 will drop to second. Wonder Woman will take third while All Eyez on Me drops to fourth. The Mummy will round out the top five.
