'Transformers: Age of Extinction' Claims $192.5M in Two WeeksJuly 11, 2014 12:36 PM

by Daniel Garris

In what should be its last day at the top of the daily box office, Transformers: Age of Extinction led the way on Thursday with $3.45 million. The fourth installment of Paramount's blockbuster sci-fi action franchise was down 6 percent from Wednesday and down 64 percent from last Thursday's inflated July 3rd performance. Wide releases declined a bit in general yesterday due in part to Fox's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes entering the marketplace on Thursday evening. Transformers: Age of Extinction was the week's top film with a weekly haul of $54.19 million. That was down 61 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's two-week total to $192.53 million. Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to perform in line with its lofty expectations, but is running a sizable 29.5 percent behind the $273.01 million 14-day take of 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Warner's Tammy held steady in second place with $2.45 million. The Melissa McCarthy comedy vehicle fell 4 percent from Wednesday and 56 percent from last Thursday. Tammy took second place for the week with $32.71 million and has grossed a very solid $44.44 million in nine days (especially with its modest price tag in mind). Tammy is currently running 44 percent behind the $79.39 million nine-day start of last year's The Heat (which opened on a Friday).

It continued to be a very tight race for places third through sixth on Thursday, with only $325,235 separating third place from sixth place. How to Train Your Dragon 2 took in $1.33 million to remain in third. The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was down 4 percent from Wednesday and down 46 percent from last Thursday. How to Train Your Dragon 2 placed in fourth for the week with $14.95 million. That represented a 34 percent decline and brings the film's four-week total to $146.20 million.

Sony's 22 Jump Street finished very closely behind in fourth with $1.32 million. The successful action comedy sequel trailed How to Train Your Dragon 2 by a very slim $6,956 for the day. 22 Jump Street was down 4 percent from Wednesday and down 47 percent from last Thursday. The film placed in third for the week with $15.79 million. That was a 37 percent decline from the previous frame and brings the film's 28-day total to an impressive $165.26 million.

Earth to Echo rounded out the day's top five with $1.26 million. The adventure family film from Relativity fell 3 percent from Wednesday and 51 percent from last Thursday. Earth to Echo placed in sixth for the week with $13.89 million and has grossed a respectable $19.10 million in nine days, due in part to relatively stronger midweek business than weekend business thus far.

Sony's Deliver Us from Evil claimed sixth place with $1.00 million. The crime horror film starring Eric Bana was down 9 percent from Wednesday and down 62 percent from last Thursday. Deliver Us from Evil took fifth place for the week with $14.79 million and has grossed a softer than expected $20.30 million through nine days.
