'Fate of the Furious' Snags Global Debut Record

Personally after Fate I'm looking forward more to that Hobbs and Shaw spin-off they've been talking about, since those two made the 8th film. A auto seat. And in the back of the plane is Dom's vehicle that you see him load up into the plane earlier in the film.

The Fate of the Furious made smashing box office records look effortless during its debut weekend - nearly as effortless as the franchise has long made impossible auto stunts appear. The amount is even lower than earnings from China, which netted USD190 million (RM874 million), setting records for the biggest three-day opening weekend in history and the top debut for a Hollywood film in the Asian country.

For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell.

But before anyone gets carried away, this isn't about the money because both stars rake in a whole lot of cash from this franchise so it's not surprising that they put their alleged feud to bed. Still, Tim Story is the Black director to beat with multiple films grossing over $100 million. Universal didn't provide a budget, but sources peg the cost at $250 million, making it the most expensive chapter in the series. However, an A Cinema Score from exit polls suggest that it will have sufficient staying power.

"You heard me say you never turn your back on family, thanks for not turning your back on me".

With the addition of "Fast 8", the franchise has earned an estimated $5.8 billion globally.

"It is a franchise that has adapted and changed over the years and is as relevant in 2017 as it was in 2001", senior media analyst for comScore Paul Dergarabedian said.

The Fate of the Furious has raced to the top of the box office chart - breaking an worldwide record in the process.

Its nearest competitor was The Boss Baby, which took a further $15.5m (£12.4m) to land second place. It should easily win next weekend against Smurfs: The Lost Village, opening Friday.
