“Transformer: Age of Extinction” is the fourth movie in the series. It was released in 2014 with a huge budget of $210 million. The movie presented a new chapter in the life of the Robots and was technically marvelous. Like previous movies in the series, this, too, was directed by Michael Bay; however, it doesn’t star the human cast from the previous three movies.
It introduces a new line of human and robot characters (including the Dinobots), which could be the reason behind its cold reviews. The movie grossed about $850, which is pretty much what the other Transformers movies made.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
In 1984, Hasbro produced a line of toys called Transformers. It was an instant hit and became the best-selling toy of all time. In 1986, the film "Transformers" movie came out, and from there, the road to success was paved. In 2007, the first live-action "Transformers" movie was released, making "Dark of the Moon" the third one.
It cost $195 million to create and grosses $1.1 billion, $382 million in the first week only. It was the second-highest-grossing movie released in 2011. The critics varied; however, it's impossible to ignore the astonishing visual effects the never-ending imagination used to create the piece.
Transformers: The Last Knight
"Transformers: The Last Knight" was released in 2017 and was the fifth movie in the series with a high budget of more than $217 million. It was directed by Michael Bay, who did not spare any special effects. The movie follows Optimus Prime who left planet Earth to find his creator in space.
Anthony Hopkins the Great played the role of Sir Edmund Burton, Mark Wahlberg was Cade Yeager, and when it came to voicing, Peter Cullen was Optimus Prime, and Frank Welker was Megatron. "The Last Knight" brought back the transformers into audience awareness and to be recognized as a high-budget blockbuster.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Technically, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is the fourth Spiderman movie to come out, which followed Sam Raimi's trilogy, released between 2002 and 2007. It costs $230 to make and presents a fresh new angle to Peter Parker's story. The production felt it was time to start a new one, so it ended Tobey Maguire's role and cast Andrew Garfield to play the leading role.
Emma Stone supported Garfield by playing Gwen Stacy, and Rhys Infans played Dr. Curtis, the Lizzard. So even though "The Amazing Spider-Man" brought something new and fresher to the screen, it still preserved the Spider magic that lies in all superhero movies.
With a $140 budget, the 1998 successful "Armageddon" grasped more than $553 million at the box office, making this the most successful movie released that year. The movie featured Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler, and Ben Affleck, so with names like that, no wonder it was such a success. It featured non-stop action and a soundtrack that became more popular than the movie itself.
"I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," performed by Aerosmith, was one of the greatest hits of that year, despite being part of the movie's soundtrack, so the incredible storyline came together with such a moving song, success was guaranteed.
