Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts Hits $8.8 Million In Box Office Previews

The prequel/sequel is projected to make $55-60 million its first weekend.


Transformers: Rise of the Beasts hit $8.8 million in box office previews, according to a new report. These preview grosses include select fan screenings on Wednesday and regular box office from Thursday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, tracking reports that Rise of the Beasts is set to make a $55-60 million in its opening weekend. It's gunning for the top box office spot, currently held by Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. The spider sequel opened to $120 million.

Rise of the Beasts is something of a direct sequel to 2018's Bumblebee and it's the first theatrically-released Transformers film since then. It's set in 1994 and follows Noah (Anthony Ramos) as he gets caught up in a galactic level conflict between Autobots and Maximals (the titular beasts) vs. the planet devouring Unicorn and the Terrorcon Scourge.

In GameSpot's Transformers: Rise of the Beasts review, Phil Own gave it a 5/10 and wrote, "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts isn't a terrible movie, but there's very little about it that's particularly good, either. After a promising opening act, it turns into just another generic CGI action-fest that left me numb."
