This Furious 7 movie just can’t stop breaking records. In its second full week in the Chinese market, the action film took home 450 million yuan ($74 million), which brings the impressive box office total up to over 2 billion yuan ($332 million).
In just 15 days, the movie has passed the previous record of $319 million held by the Transformers: Age of Extinction. According to the research group Entgroup, China is the biggest box office territory in the world for Vin Diesel’s baby.
Back in North America, Furious 7 is still holding strong. The film has been at the number one spot since its release earlier this month, although, that will change this weekend with The Avengers: Age of Ultron being released.
What other records does this movie have? Well, it’s the fastest live-action film to take home more than $1 billion worldwide. And after going over the $1.32 billion mark, it’s now more successful than Frozen.
Maybe Vin Diesel was right when he said this movie would win Best Picture at the Oscars?
“It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don’t want to be relevant ever. This will win best picture. There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing.”
Okay, okay. We all know that’s never going to happen; however, the noise this movie is making around the world is pretty impressive.
