The fantastic movie "Bumblebee" took the lead in the international box office, pushing the picture "Aquaman" out of the first place. According to Variety, this was due to the successful launch of Bumblebee in China, where it raised $ 59.4 million.
It is worth noting that the first Transformers spin-off was shown in China at a significantly lower number screens than "Aquaman" - 9180 against 30.5 thousand. The worldwide box office grossed $ 289 million. The production budget of the project is estimated at $ 135 million, therefore, in order to payback it needs to earn at least $ 350 million at the box office. Bumblebee has yet to launch in important markets for such movie projects, including Japan, where it will be presented to viewers only in March 2019.
Key roles in the movie were played by Hayley Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Kenneth Choi, Rachel Crowe, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Stephen Schneider, Abby Quinn, Ricardo Hoyos, Jason Drucker and other actors. Travis Knight was appointed as the director.
