Fast & Furious 8 breaks records in debut

Share

The Oscar victor plays the villain in The Fate of the Furious, joining franchise stars Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for the eighth installment of the street racing films.

Vin Diesel "Fate of the Furious" earned a total estimated $532.5 Million in the global opening.

Universal reported an even United States dollars 190 million, and factoring out online ticketing surcharges, the total comes to a slightly less-hefty RMB 1.245 billion (USD 182.2 million), but no matter how you slice it, Furious 8's debut - almost double North America's and more than a third of its worldwide cume - solidifies The Fast and the Furious as China's premiere franchise. Apparently, this could keep the collection lower than the earning of Fast and Furious 7.

What we ARE talking about, in this case, is whether or not the Fast and the Furious franchise has run out of gas both narratively and creatively. The film has managed to beat films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jurassic World with its box office collections.

The latest installment in the "The Fast and The Furious" franchise has been taking over the cinemas by a storm.

It also took the top spot in Singapore, scoring the biggest four-day opening weekend box office this year.

According to Gamespot, internationally, "The Fate of the Furious" is starting to get ahead of the last movie, Furious 7. The theme revolves around Charlize Theron's character, who "seduces Dom [Diesel] into the world of crime he can't seem to escape".

Chris Morgan, the writer of The Fate Of The Furious, has explained why Jason Statham's character undergoes a surprise redemption in the hit blockbuster.

"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.
