Director Michael Bay brings us a new trailer for the next Trasnsformers movie, Transformers The Last Knight.

A long voice over from Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins brings up bang up to date with how we got here.

Watch below.

Two films this year have made it past $1 billion in world box office grosses, Avengers Age of Ultron and Fast and Furious 7, which brings the total number of films to go past the threshold to 20.

The first film to do the feat was Titanic back in 1997, that held on as the only film to do so until The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King did it in 2004.

Since then we have had the likes of a Harry Potter film, a Transformers film, a Star Wars film after a re-release and a couple of Pirates of the Caribbean films do it.

Two animated films have also done the feat, Toy Story 3 and of course Disney's biggest hit to date Frozen.

The top film of all time, and the previously mentioned Titanic have gone over the $2 billion mark, although it did take Titanic a 3D re-release to do the $2B feat. Were looking at the first $3 Billion film now, Avengers Age of Ultron is doing well but will fall short, will Star Wars: The Force Awakens manage it, 2016 will tell us.

And heres the full list

©2015, The Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE®) Awards LLC

Transformers: Age of Extinction tops the UK video chart on it's first week of release on Blu-ray and DVD.

The fourth in the Transformers films was released at the UK box office on 11th June of this year taking £11.7 million on it's debut week of release.

The film was on the box office chart for only 5 weeks taking £19 million in the process, and is only the 187th highest grossing film of all time in the UK, it is the lowest of the series.

World wide the film fared slightly better, it grossed $1.07 billion and is the 11th highest grossing film of all time, much of that was from Japan where it is the highest grossing film in that territory.

Falling from the top to fifth is X-Men: Days of Future Past after it debuted at the top last week.

Other new film this week are
How to Train Your Dragon 2 at 2
22 Jump Street at 4
Earth to Echo at 9
The Purge Anarchy at 10
The House of Magic at 18
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 19

With a membership that is getting ever longer by each year the latest Transformers movie has now taken over $1 Billion in global box office takings.

Transformers Age of Extinction has performed well in Europe and America where most of the films on the list make their money, but where it has really shone is in China where it has become the biggest film ever.

There are now 18 films that have made over a billion but still only 2 that have taken over $2 Billion, the James Cameron duo of Avatar and Titanic.

Of the other 16 most notable are Frozen which is the top animated movie Batman which has 2 films on the list, Middle earth which has 2, one of the Lord of the Rings films and the first Hobbit film, Skyfall which the is top British film, unless you count Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Possibly by the end of the year we'll have a top 20 of $1 Billion grossing movies, although the films with the best possibilities, The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could miss the mark and we'll have to wait for Avengers Age of Ultron and Jurassic World next year?

In America this week Scarlett Johansson stars in the Luc Besson directed Lucy which takes over at the top without too much competition.

Having been a very prolific director in the late 90's Luc Besson returns to the adult action arena and hits the top with Lucy, helped in no small way by the ever popular star Scarlett Johansson.

Lucy hits the top spot with a $44 million opening weekend.

Falling into second place after a couple of weeks at the top is Dawn of the planet of the apes, a $16 million weekend takes its total gross after 3 weeks to $172 million.

Highest grossing film on the American box office this week is Transformers Age of Extinction which has grossed $236 million so far.

Also new on the US box office this week is
Hercules at 2
And So It Goes at 8 A Most Wanted Man at 10

The ever busy Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) is back on the big screen this weekend with the action film Hercules, based on the story of the Greek God and son of Zeus.

Probably not sticking to the legend too closely this is an all out action film that should do well at the UK box office, probably wont have the power to interrupt Apes or Transformers but a healthy top 3 might be in order.

Earth to Echo is the story of a small alien robot that comes to earth and is found by a trio of boys, the rest is predicable and their lives will change forever.

This is aimed squarely at the kids, but with the fantastic weather currently being experienced in the UK this could just get a top 5 entry.

Other new films this week
The Purge: Anarchy
Joe
The House of Magic
Believe

This week we finally see the full release of Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2, and predictable they dominate the upper end of the box office chart.

Taking the top spot is the 4th in the Transformers series of movies from director Michael. The film had previews last weekend and takes the number 1 position with ease this week grossing £11.7 million in the process, it is the biggest grossing opening weekend of the year so far.

It's interesting to note this opening gross does include the £8 million from last weeks preview screenings, a £3 - 4 million is a closer opening weekend figure.

Opening in second place after going on general release is How to Train Your Dragon 2 which also includes money from it's previews over the last 3 or 4 weeks.

Falling to third this week is last weeks top film Mrs. Brown's Boy's D'Movie which after 3 weeks has grossed £11.8 million.

There were a number of other new film this which included
Begin Again at 5
Boyhood at 7
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania at 12

Last year at the box office Monsters University opened at the top of the chart knocking Despicable Me 2 into second place after 2 weeks at the top.

Five years ago Sasha Baron Cohen opened at the top with Bruno which knocked Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs to second place.

Ten years ago Shrek 2 held on tight at the top for another week keeping Around the World in 80 Days in second place for it's debut.

Fifteen years ago there was little change at the top with The Mummy retaining it's lead for a second week, highest new film was 10 Things I Hate About You at 5.

An interesting weekend of releases, Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2 go on general release after a couple of weeks of previews, and Boyhood and Begin Again are fresh to cinemas.

The fourth Transformers film is going to be the top film of the weekend, last weeks previews will be added to the gross meaning it will open in the £10 million mark and it could be the biggest opening of the franchise.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 has been on pre-release for a while now and has been on the box office chart for a couple of weeks, it's wider release will push it up the chart and it should go to number 2 this weekend.

Boyhood is a film from Richard Linklater and has been 12 years in the making, following the life of a young lad Linklater film in realtime with the boy growing up. Good reviews means it should get at least a top 10 entry.

Also out is Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo in Begin Again.

This weekend in the US it was a simple case of The Transformers conquers all as it takes the highest Friday to Sunday gross of the year so far.

The fourth in the Michael Bay directed Transformers films, Transformers: Age of Extinction, hot US cinemas this weekend and took an incredible $100 million, the highest of the year to date.

The Transformers massive gross was as much as the rest of the box office combined, last weeks top film Think Like a Man Too takes a big tumble to number 4 this week.

Next week comedy Tammy and horror Deliver Us From Evil make their debut's, Transformers will get some competition but should stay at the top.

Nothing of real note this week in the UK which could lead to a fairly static box office chart this weekend, leading the way is the Michael bay low budget film Pain and Gain and indie film The Way Way Back with Steve Carell and Toni Collette.

Pain and Gain has not been getting much in the way of good reviews, infact it's been getting terrible reviews. Michael Bay who usually directs big budget films like Transformers brings us this films about body building and kidnapping, starring Mark Wahlberg.

Very little is known of this film and I suspect a low entry, top 10 at least and around the £800,000 mark over the weekend.

THe other new release is The Way Way Back, the coming of age story centers around a young boy in a dysfunctional family who befriends the owner of a water park.

Despite the good reviews and 'A' list stars little is known of this film and a quick release to DVD and limited cinema release might get this film in £100,000 but no entry in the box office top 15.

At the UK box office chart this week the fourth Ice Age films takes the number one spot. It was a bad week though as no film in the UK grosses over a million pound in box office takings.

Ice Age: Continental Drift continues the success of the Ice Age series, but with only £853,226 for its opening weekend it's set to be the lowest grossing. Also this week Prometheus continues it's good run and goes back up to number 2 but last weeks top film, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, falls 5 places to number 6.

This weeks top 15 films marks the lowest top 15 since 25th June 2010 when Get Him to the Greek topped the chart and the combined chart took only £ 3,460,985, although the last time no film in the UK took over a million was way back on 28th September 2007 when Run Fatboy Run was in it's 4th week at the top.

This time last year fared much better that last weekend when the 3rd Transformers film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, took the top spot with an incredible £10,728,503 and also was the top new film of the week.

Five years ago Shrek The Third topped the chart in its opening weekend with and amazing £16,671,727 and it also was the highest new film of the week. And ten year ago Spider-Man was still at the top of the chart having taken it's total gross to £20,953,100 while Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock was the highest new film at 2.

Sales of films and TV show on a physical disk declined by 7.2% in 2011 while sales of digital media downloads rose by 12%. Despite this Blu-ray is growing with it now accounting for 18% of the market.

Rental sales for downloads are expected to get stronger and stronger as the video shop of the ‘90's continues to become a relic. The saviors for DVD/Blu-ray is the triple play disk set allowing for the consumer to have the Blu-ray, DVD and digital for mobile devices version of a film.

Despite this downturn in sales December saw a big increase in sales and accounted for nearly 25% of the yearly sales of physical disks, and Blu-ray saw a year on year increase of nearly 27%.

British films saw an incredible year for sales with the last 2 chapters of the Harry Potter series by far outselling everything else. The Kings Speech, The Inbetweeners and Paul also did very well with British talent attached. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was also a big seller, it was made in Britain.

Despite the recession the home video market, which includes physical and digital media was worth £2,251 billion in 2011.

Here is the top 10 films and TV sales of 2011

  1. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows – Part 2
  2. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows – Part 1
  3. The Inbetweeners
  4. The King's Speech
  5. Pirates Of The Caribbean - On Stranger Tides
  6. Despicable Me
  7. Paul
  8. Tangled
  9. Peter Kay - Live - The Tour That Didn't Tour
  10. Transformers - Dark Of The Moon
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 simply did big business across the world in 2011 taking an incredible $1,327,655,619 in world wide box office takings.

The final instalment of the Harry Potter franchise made sure that no other franchise will come close to it for a while and it was the only film in the saga to break the billion pound mark in world grosses, although the 3D tax will have helped.

Coming in a healthy second is Transformers: Dark of the Moon which took $1,114,558,779, this is also the highest grossing film it's series, although to date there are only 3, more will follow. With Transformers taking over a billion it completed a top 10 of world box office films with over a billion.

Also worth a mention are Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with just over a billion dollars, Kung Fu Panda with $659,230,261 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 with $648,079,401.

It was not a great year for film at the box office this year despite the high taking of 3 films, they were exceptions. Next year is a good year for films and could well see box office takings increase with the likes of Batman, Spider-Man and The Hobbit.

The final instalment of Harry Potter saw the boy wizard go out with a bang, and it became the most successful film of the franchise in the process, and for 2011 it is the highest grossing film at the UK box office.

During its 10 week run it raked up £73,094,187 in UK box office takings, at todays cinema ticket prices that is about 13.5 million tickets making it the 30th top film in the UK by ticker sales. Other film to do well in 2011 were The kings Speech with £45.3 milion, The Inbetweeners with £45 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with £32.9 million and The Hangover Part II with £32.7 million.

In all a good year for British films (is Harry Potter a British film?) with Blockbusters not doing so well, Breaking Dawn and Transformers Dark of the Moon performed well enough but they were big budget blockbusters and had higher expectations.

I think the winner of the year was The Inbetweeners Movie that performed well abouve expectations, made back its budget and secured a sequel in the process, al that for a little Channel 4 show about bad mouthed undersexed teens.

The third Transformers movie now has a teaser trailer up at Apple.com. It's an interesting trailer which shows that clearly Michael Bay is a big Alien fan as the trailer has a definite feel of the beginning of the first Alien movie.

The movie has a sub title of The Dark of the Moon (not to be confused with the Pink Floyd album) and has a release date July 1st 2011. Shia LaBeouf stars once again although there is no Megan Fox this time around.

Is it just me or does the re-constructed footage of the first men on the moon just look wrong, the way the astronaut's move just doesn't look right. The story seems predictable and as I said earlier, there is a big lean to Alien in the footage shown. Oh did I mention the film is in 3D?

Check out the footage at the Apple site or if the YouTube video is still up press play below.

As happens each year the night before the Oscar nominations are announced the Razzie nominations are announced which celebrated the worst in cinematic achievements through the year.

Leading the field this year is the Transformers sequel, Revenge of the Fallen, which lets face it was truly awful and in the field for worst film along with All About Steve, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Land of the Lost and Old Dogs should win quite comfortably.

As these awards are something which are not taken too seriously, even by the foundation, in the worst actor category we have all 3 Jonas brothers up for a single nomination, in the same category we have Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy (who has had his fare share of nominations) and John Travolta.

Worst actress nods go to Beyonce, Sandra Bullock, Myley Cyrus, Megan Fox and Sarah Jessica Parker, and guess which of these was in the Transformers movie that may just pip the rest at the post.

The categories are not in the usual fashion and there is a category for Worst Screen Couple for which the Jonas brothers feature again and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, which of course the Transformers film appears in.

As we celebrated the end of a decade last year there are also categories for picture, actress and actor that were the worst of the naughties.

With 2009 drawing to a close it's time to look back at the top performers of 2009, and topping the list of top grossing films in the US is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The Michael Bay directed sequel attracted a box office take of $402,076,689 which is way ahead of the crowd by $100,000 of its closest rival.

Its closest rival being Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince which took $301,956,980 and Disney's Up came close in 3rd with $292,913,068.

Biggest surprise of the year is at 4, and the highest grossing 'R' rated comedy ever in The Hangover which took $277,313,371, beating Star Trek which rounds out the top 5 with $257,704,099.

Finishing up the top 10 highest grossing films for 2009 in the US is New Moon, Avatar, Monsters vs. Aliens, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Worth mentioning is that Avatar released late in the year is on track to beat Transformers although much of its takings will be in 2010, and Sherlock Holmes which will enter the top 10 of films of 2009.

Yesterday Internet was alight with news that Paramount has announced that the release date for Transformers 3, a follow up to this years yet to be released Transformers 2: Rise of the Fallen, would be July 1, 2011, but the director Michael Bay seems to have other ideas which he's expressed on his Website.

In a statement on his Website he seems to be correcting Paramount saying he wants to take a year off and make the 3rd movie in the series for release on 2012.

Maybe planning so far ahead is a bad idea, especially for film which are not even in pre-production, your bound to get at least some information wrong.

This reminds me of an advert for a film I saw in the trade press once, the film starred Annette Benning and the advert for the film proudly announced "starring Annette Benning, Catwoman in the new Batman Movie", now we all know that Benning didn't star in that Batman movie and was off having a baby instead.

Now I know studios have to plan ahead, but do they have to shout about it and get the hype going so far in advance, especially for a film like Transformers that 1) is being hyped enough already for the film that is not even at cinemas yet and HAS been made, and 2) will generate enough buzz of it's own during the 18 months before hand.
