Poor reviews haven't hurt "Transformers: Age of Extinction."
That's due in large part to the film's phenomenal performance overseas in China.
The film continues to slow down stateside while it has picked up in China.
Paramount focused a lot of the film's marketing toward China. Not only was the film primarily made in the country, it also included Chinese actress Fan Bingbing in the sequel, and held a contest to include Chinese fans in the movie.
Here are the top movies of the year so far at the box office via Box Office Mojo:
