I think Michael Bay would still be happily boasting that the Bumblebee Movie hasn't overtaken any of his five TFs movies, both in America and in total... and is still only at about a third of the money he made on two of his.
400 million is a good amount, but still pales in comparison to 1.1 billion Bay raked in for TF2 and TF3.

It should be possible with the base production cost of each film, but the marketing budget of big blockbusters these days is often bigger than the cost of the movie, and even though the amount is rarely declared by the movie distributors, it now gets taken into account when determining profitability (TF6 had a production budget of 217million, but is said to have lost money, despite making 600million... and the cut taken by movie theatres wouldn't be that much).

I've read in a few places that a good rule of thumb is that you take the production budget and multiply by three to get the true cost of getting the movie to cinema, including cinema cuts and marketing.
