Despite harsh reviews, the 'Transformers' franchise keeps raking in the cash.

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' brought in $100 million this past weekend to debut with the biggest opening weekend of the year. The action blockbuster outperformed 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and its $95 million inauguration in April.

Michael Bay's fourth film in the series, starring Mark Wahlberg, rocketed to the top of the domestic box office with '22 Jump Street' and 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' in a distant second with $15.4 million and $13.1 million respectively.

Also of note is the fact that 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' earned double that -- $201 million -- internationally. Almost half of that total coming from China alone.
