Never Turn Your Back On Family: ‘Fate of the Furious’ Breaks Worldwide Box Office Records

Published On April 17, 2017 » 53965 Views» By Z-rowe »

It looks like Vin Diesel knew what he was doing when he decided to continue the Fast & Furious franchise. Even though the films are caricatures of what they once were, fans continue to pack the theaters every time a new installment is released.

The eighth film (Fate of the Furious) in the franchise was released this past weekend and it broke several records at the worldwide box office.

It took home an estimated $532.5 million worldwide to set the record for highest global box office opening ever. One interesting thing about this is that the film actually dropped off in North America.

You’ll remember that Furious 7 took home $147.2 million during its opening weekend in 2015. Fate of the Furious opened to just $100.2 million here in the states. It was the international market that saved the film.

It earned a ridiculous $432.3 million internationally in 63 foreign markets. $190 million of that coming from China, where the franchise is more popular than ever. That’s obviously great news for the franchise, but the studio is probably still a little disappointed by the decline here in the US.

Mainly because Hollywood studios only take 25% of Chinese ticket sales. According to Variety, that’s roughly half of what they earn in most major markets.

But when you’re bringing in a total of $532.5 million in your opening weekend, 25% vs. 50% doesn’t really matter as much.

Always believe in your family. #family #familyfamily #familyforreal #wearefamily #fam #siblings

    totally free,then you mmay not spend any penny at all.

    I read books, I attend seminars, I go to workshops, I ddo
    copious levels of research, also it never ceases to amaze me that there’s always more knowledge tto
    be gained about a subject. Interview the candidates and
    verify if your claimed skills, experience and
    Knowledge iis in fact present.

  5. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center
    yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a
    difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

  6. Stick wuth what you’re doing, or find another andd muich better web marketing strategy to replace the free ad strategy.
    The readers of that blog must be thinking about the overall foeld of expert knowledge in thhe blog.

    Woukd your work thurow open a new perspective or would it not just invoke a ‘what’s new’ response.

  7. Great post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog
