Box office report: 'Transformers 4' holds No. 1 spot, no fireworks for 'Tammy'

Transformers: Age of Extinction showed its summer might once more by holding onto the No. 1 spot in its second weekend of release, grossing an estimated $36.4 million from 4,233 locations and effectively shutting out the slate of new releases. Michael Bay’s explosive epic also hit $400 million internationally after just 12 days in release.

But, overall, it was a quiet holiday weekend at the box office, and the gap between 2013 and 2014 summer earnings only continues to grow. None of the week’s new releases were ever going to match last year’s Despicable Me 2 opening.

Among the weekend openers was Warner Bros.’ R-rated comedy Tammy (C+ Cinema Score), which managed to take in just $21.2 million in its first weekend in release and $32.9 million across the five-day, cooling star Melissa McCarthy’s recent box office hot streak. The second place opening isn’t a disaster by any means—the pic only cost $20 million to produce—but it also didn’t meet the studio’s modest expectations ($37 million across five days). On top of that, the lousy Cinema Score means that this one will drop hard and fast.

Box office update: 'Transformers 4' crushes 'Tammy,' 'Earth to Echo'

Tammy is no match for the Transformers. The Melissa McCarthy comedy had a slight shot at snagging the top spot over the holiday, but the Autobots managed to stave off extinction for one more week — at least till the Apes take over next weekend.

Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the toy-based franchise pulled in an estimated $10.6 million Friday, while the R-rated Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) took in $6.44 million from 3,400 theaters. In other words, there were no box office fireworks this weekend.

Box office preview: 'Tammy' takes on the Transformers

Melissa McCarthy’s over-the-top comedy Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) bursts into theaters this long Fourth of July weekend to challenge Michael Bay’s over-the-top Transformers: Age of Extinction for the No. 1 spot. Will Americans choose an original comedy or the latest summer blockbuster to escape the heat and barbeques? It could be close.

Also opening wide is the E.T.-like Earth to Echo (A- Cinema Score) and the horror pic Deliver Us From Evil (B- Cinema Score). It’s the rare summer weekend without any sequels or franchises, and it won’t hold a candle to the same weekend last year which saw Despicable Me 2 take in $143 million across the Wednesday to Sunday time frame.

Here’s how things might play out.

Exclusive: Meet the real demonologist from Eric Bana's 'Deliver Us From Evil'

Deliver Us From Evil is marketing itself as a horror film “inspired by the actual accounts of an NYPD sergeant.” In the film, Eric Bana plays a New York City cop named Ralph Sarchie who has a particular set of skills.

“I’m not a ghosthunter; I’m not a paranormal investigator; I’m a demonologist,” says the real Sarchie, in an exclusive documentary about his special work and how it’s changed his life. “I should’ve told you you this right up front: You’ve become involved in exposing the devil because of this film here,” he adds. “I have this message, and you can believe in it or not. I don’t really care.”

In this exclusive 14-minute video (which includes some colorful profanity), Sarchie explains his work and shares footage of an actual 1992 exorcism. Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY
