- Transformers: Age of Extinction is going to play to gigantic audiences in China, according to Viacom (VIA, VIAB) CEO Philippe Dauman.
- The enthusiastic Dauman even predicts a few box office records could fall. More level-headed estimates call for a $150M-$175M run in China.
- Paramount studio execs took promotional tie-ins for Transformers in China to a new level in anticipation of strong response. In one example, a reality show on CCTV had Chinese contestants competing for a guest spot in the movie.
- Box office forecasts for the fourth Transformers film are right below the $1B mark. A solid launch in China could bring the movie into the 10-digit zone.
