'Furious' franchise continues box office boom with latest release

Galeno Paniagua | 17 Abril, 2017, 22:43

What is perhaps most impressive is that The Fate of the Furious, after just a single weekend in theaters, is now the fourth highest-grossing movie in the franchise overall.

The film had to acknowledge why Brian was not there during Dominic Toretto's darkest period.

"It's just awesome how well-received this franchise is all over the world", especially in China, said Paul Sweeney, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

The middle-order batsmen played too slow to cope up with the required run rate as it kept on climbing over by over. If we don't back players in this tournament, they trend to breed insecurity and we will back Sunil all the way.

He continued, "The guy who is their father figure, their brother, their husband, who's taught them their moral code, suddenly betrays it all, goes rogue, goes against them, and it becomes a real question of faith".

The record-breaking weekend of "Fate of the Furious" is good news for the future of 16-year old series.

And that's at least partly due to the untimely death of Paul Walker prior to its release. Its cumulative is $35.2 million after five weekends. The eighth film in the franchise has earned $432.2 million (£345.2 million) overseas, while the Jurassic Park sequel took in $316.7 million (£252.9 million) in 2015.

McConnell vindicated as Supreme Court nominee confirmed
Vice President Mike Pence presided over the senate for the vote and announced the final tally of 54 to 45 in favor of Gorsuch. And in many ways the showdown had been pre-ordained, the final chapter in years of partisan warfare over judicial nominees.

It grossed an estimated US$100.2 million in the North American market, and premiered in over 60 worldwide markets, box office tracking website BoxofficeMojo.com reports.

That said, this eighth installment is still breaking records even in box office booths far, far away. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift ($158.5 million), The Fast and the Furious ($207.3 million), 2 Fast 2 Furious ($236.4 million) and Fast and Furious ($363.2 million) all grossed less during their entire run than Fast 8 managed in just a few days.

The action thriller Number 8 starring Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson from Fast & Furious global franchise is all set to smash some world records sooner, after it spectacular opening at the global box office. Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren joined the line-up for the first time.

Tesla Adding New Products To Its Lineup

Fast and Furious 8 is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell. The Fox release earned $145,000 and extended its total to $2.84 million after four weekends.
