IT IS a high action, explosion-riddled blockbuster but when Paramount Pictures took to Twitter to ask "fans" to list their favourite moments, they were given a lesson in British sarcasm.

Transformers: Age of Extinction has earned more than $1 billion at box offices worldwide.

Transformers has grossed almost $25 million in Australia, making it the second highest-earning movie for the year so far, out performing X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolf of Wall Street and fast catching up to The Lego Movie which pulled $27.7 million.

And here come the responses!







Of course, at least one person was a fan.
