June promises to be an interesting month for blockbuster movies, kicking off with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse before Transformers: Rise of the Beasts rolls out a week later. The Flash will then follow, and there's a lot of intrigue surrounding how each of these movies is going to perform. 

Today, Box Office Pro has shared some early tracking data for the next Transformers title at the North American box office, and the first meeting of the Autobots and Maximals in live-action currently looks set to underwhelm. 

While there's been a lot of interest in Rise of the Beasts' trailers from longtime fans, that might be the only thing it has going for it right now!

2018's Bumblebee had legs, grossing $127.2 million domestically and $468 million worldwide; however, that was still 68% down from the franchise's peak with Revenge of the Fallen in 2009, a movie which earned $402 million in North America. 

However, the site explains that early tracking and pre-sales have put Rise of the Beasts in line with noteworthy flops like Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Morbius, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Terminator: Dark Fate.

That's dubious company to be in, and Paramount Pictures won't be happy with early estimates of a $30 million - $40 million opening and predicted $61 million - $90 million lifetime gross. 

The next Transformers movie being sandwiched Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and The Flash obviously isn't helping matters, and this won't be the fresh start the studio was hoping for. It will also mark another noteworthy disappointment for the studio after Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves similarly underperformed. 

"Returning to the action and spectacle that have captured moviegoers around the world," reads the synopsis, "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a '90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new breed of Transformer – the Maximals – to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons."

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to be released in U.S. theatres on June 9.
