    Furious 7 Debuts to $384 Million Globally & $143 Million Domestically!

    "Furious 7" is speeding past records at the box office this Easter weekend & left all its competitors in the dust with a scorching global debut of $384 million & a record breaking (April) debut domestically at $143.6 Million breaking Captain America: The Winter Soldier's record of a $95 Million debut!

    It marked Universal Pictures’ biggest wide release ever, unspooling in 14,009 theaters around the world, including Imax and large format locations.

    It ranks as the fourth highest-grossing global opening in history behind “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” ($483.2 million), “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” ($394.4 million) and “The Avengers” ($392.5 million). 

    “They’ve continually amped up the excitement level and improved the brand,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “They’ve created something that’s stood the test of time and seeped into the culture.”

    The film, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker, is on course to become the ninth highest-grossing U.S. opener of all time, stealing the slot from “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” which launched to $142.8 million in November of 2009. It trails “Spider-Man 3,” which debuted to $151.1 million in May 2007.

    Michelle Rodriguez, Jordanna Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges reprise their roles in the current installment.
    The movie is set to become the franchise’s biggest opening of all time. “Fast and Furious 6,” which debuted to $97 million two years ago (on its way to $238 million at the domestic box office) is the current record-holder. The franchise has already generated $2.4 billion worldwide with the first six movies since launching in 2001.

    Audiences flocked to see star Paul Walker in one of his final roles. The actor died in a 2013 car crash at the age of 40, and his work on the film was completed using digital technology and a series of stand-ins.

    Foreign numbers were steroidal. Internationally, the film rolled out across 10,500 screens in 63 territories, earning $240.4 million.

    It now seems that Furious 7 will 'definitely' be the first of the franchise to score past the $1 Billion figure globally, a feat. which only a few movies have accomplished before. Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
