The Fate of the Furious breaks global box office record

Galeno Paniagua | 17 Abril, 2017, 22:45

The Fate of the Furious should have an easy road to victory next weekend when it goes up against Unforgettable with Katherine Heigl, The Promise starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, and Free Fire featuring Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, and Cillian Murphy.

The former music video director broke that mark when The Fate of the Furious earned an estimated a $532.5 million box office opening around the world.

The eighth installment of the action-packed franchise "The Fast and the Furious" was a big victor in the both Korean and North American weekend box offices.

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.

Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges returned as cast members for the latest edition of the action flick franchise.

Saturday's receipts was also the biggest opening day of the year so far, as well the best first day gross for a Universal Pictures title in history. According to Forbes, Furious 8, the latest offering from the billion-dollar series, opened with a whopping $100 million in the United States and $432 million overseas, making it the highest grossing opening weekend-based on domestic and global box office takes-EVER.

"There is no market that hasn't had a strong reception", said Duncan Clark, Universal's president of global distribution.

SAP Center will be a raucous sea of teal when the Sharks host the Oilers on Sunday , after playing the first two games away. Cam Talbot made 41 saves for the Oilers , while Sharks goalie Martin Jones stopped 17 shots, majority in the first period.

"Furious 7" had a groundswell of additional interest due to the death of actor Paul Walker, who played cop-turned-street-racer Brian O'Conner, a lead character in six of the films. "The "Furious" franchise perfectly represents what that global audience is all about. It's still firing on all cylinders". So far, it is the biggest business done by any film released globally.

Back in the top 10, Fox and DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby placed No. 2 with $15.5 million for a domestic cume of $116.5 million.

Smurfs: The Lost Village dropped over 50 percent and finished in fourth place with $6.5 million.

Mike Evans' 5th-Year Contract Option Picked Up by Buccaneers
This is the first step in the right direction for a franchise that has been struggling throughout the decade. It is also worth noting that the Buccaneers had until the May 3 deadline to pick up Evan's fifth-year option.

Those huge worldwide numbers offset the lower than expected domestic box office total for The Fate of the Furious.
