Jesus Christ people, do you want Bay to make ANOTHER sequel?!
Variety is reporting that Michael Bay's latest hate crime against your childhood, Transformers: Age of Extinction, has brought in a $41.6 million box office take for its opening day, giving it the highest grossing opening day of the year so far. The movie is expected to break $100 million for the weekend, which would make it the first movie to do so this year as well. Transformers also reportedly had a $30 million plus opening day in China, the largest ever for a foreign film, and has raked in more than $80 million internationally so far.

How can a movie that everyone pretty much agrees is terrible make so much money? We spoke to an expert to find out.
"People are stupid," said Professor of Paradoxical Box Office Performances at the prestigious University of Phoenix, Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms.
So thanks a lot, assholes. It looks like Bayformers shows no signs of slowing down, which means he will continue to be given the opportunity to destroy everything we loved about our childhoods by producing more movies making a mockery of classic franchises for years to come.
