'F8' supercharges global box office

For some perspective, the box office success surpasses "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which earned $529 million during its opening weekend.

Across the entire Easter weekend, and across the entire world, The Fate of the Furious did an estimated $532.5 million in its first three days in theaters!

The eighth installment of "The Fast and the Furious" franchise made history over the weekend with the biggest global opening ever for a film. The Fate of the Furious earned $100.2-million in its opening weekend in North America.

This comes after Vin said his relationship with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is misunderstood, amid new reports of searing tension between the A-list action heroes over professional differences during last summer's filming of The Fate of the Furious.

Rumours have circulating since early this weekend that The Fate Of The Furious is the biggest global box office opening of all time.

"Going in Style", a Warner Bros. comedy starring Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin and Michael Caine as an octogenarian bank robbers, placed fifth in its second weekend, taking in $6.3 million for a domestic total of $23.3 million, which nearly covers its production budget.

Starting off in 2001 as an American movie with a very diverse cast about the street-racing subculture of Los Angeles, it is now one of the biggest movie franchises in Hollywood with the latest film achieving the largest opening in 17 countries where it is currently number one at the box office charts. This number in China can set a record as box office record for a foreign film which is now set by Furious 7 at $390 million in 2015. Right now, China's film regulators are slowly lightening their restrictions, especially that there is an obvious growth in the movie industry in 2016.

The Fate of The Furious, which opened on April 12th, 2017, follows the usual Fast and Furious suspects (Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez) on a mission as Vin Diesel's character, Dominic Torretto, is turned to a life of crime by Charlize Theron's character, Cipher. However, as the Variety's report suggested, after the "Fate of the Furious" installment, it is good for the series to eye the exit ramp.
