ComingSoon.net (via Variety) has posted an update on the worldwide box office for Michael Bay’s Transformers:
Transformers remained a solid overseas player with $30 million at 6,118 in 53 markets. The movie’s foreign total has hit $296 million, nearly matching the domestic total. Transformers, which has exceeded Paramount’s expectations offshore, should become the 48th pic to hit the $300 million international mark in a few days. It will be the fifth summer tentpole — but first non-sequel — to cross that milestone this summer after Spider-Man 3, “At World’s End,” “Order of the Phoenix,” and Shrek the Third.
With $592.3 million worldwide, we would say you can expect that official sequel announcement any day now.
