With a $60M Box office opening, Hasbro’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts currently has an edge over Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
What is the Complete News?
Currently, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has left Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse behind in terms of box office opening. Most of the people said they wanted to see Rise of the Beasts as it was part of the franchise they found fun and entertaining.
They loved the genre and the VFX used in the movie. The percentage who watched the franchise was 23% adults and 9% kids. However, when it comes to these films, people don’t watch for stars; instead, they come for action and VFX.
It was a fantastic comeback for Rise of the Beasts as its previous franchises witnessed a drop from $70M to $47M to $52M. It is the seventh sequel of the Transformers franchise, which upped its way to $60M.
On the second Friday, where Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was at $16.6M, Rise of the Beasts was strongly standing at $25.6M. Now, the question arises whether Rise of the Beasts will ever touch the $100M+ start.

With 895.1M fans across Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, and TikTok, Rise of the Beasts was loud on social media. However, the Transformers sequels’ pages alone drive around 32M fans.
