LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is ruling the box office.

The fourth installment of filmmaker Michael Bay's morphing robots series earned $100 million in its opening weekend, making it the biggest debut for a movie in 2014, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The Paramount film also earned $201.3 million from 37 international territories. "Transformers" specifically made $90 million in China.
