Fate of the Furious Races to the Top Spot with $100 Million Debut


The 8th installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fate of the Furious, easily took the top spot this weekend ($100.2 million).  Albeit, it is a dip from Furious 7's $147.2 million debut in 2015, Fast 8's (Furious 8? this movie has too many AKA's) $100.2 million debut is just a portion of it's even more massive overseas debut.  In fact, it earned a massive $190 million in China alone which helped it's worldwide debut total climb to $532.5 million.  If this number holds up, this bests the worldwide record debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($529 million).

China, loves them some Vin Diesel movies... where earlier this year the XXX sequel, Return of Xander Cage raked up $165 million in that country alone, counting for almost half of it's $346 million worldwide gross. It only made $45 million in the States.

In other news this week, Beauty and the Beast waltzed pass the $1 billion mark worldwide, to become the first movie of 2017 to do so.
