(NBC) - Paramount Pictures continues to "transform" a highly successful movie franchise into mega profits.

It's latest "Transformers" installment, "Age of Extinction," is the first 2014 film to top $1 billion at the global box office.

According to entertainment media sources such as Variety and the Hollywood Reporter, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" crossed the billion-dollar benchmark this past weekend.

The film, directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Walhberg, was made for just $200 million and features popular autobot heroes, such as Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Bumblebee, protecting planet Earth from a new type of deadly villain - the Dinobots.

The sci-fi action flick is just under three hours long and originally opened to poor reviews by critics, although fans and moviegoers gave it an "A minus" rating on the polling service Cinemascore.
