  • Saw Furious 7 Last Night

    Movie was good, but I liked 5 and 6 better. The storyline for this one wasnt as good. Anyone else going to watch this?

    I'm a huge fan of the franchise. Just reading some reviews and tweets and seem they liked this one the best. The ending is bitter sweet I guess..
    Interested in any Francisco Lindor, PeeWee Reese, Archie Bradley and Paul Goldschmidt, wise...

      Weekend Report: 'Furious 7' Opens to $392 Million Worldwide - Box Office Mojo

      Furious 7 took the 14-year-old Fast franchise to the next level this weekend with a stunning $147.2 million debut.

      That opening ranks ninth all-time behind The Avengers, Iron Man 3, the final Harry Potter, two Dark Knight movies, two Hunger Games and Spider-Man 3.

      The movie also opened to an incredible $245 million overseas; that's without any help from China, Japan and Russia, where it will open in the next few weeks. So far, Furious 7 has earned $392 million worldwide, and is very likely on track to earn over $1 billion by the end of its run.

      At the domestic box office, Furious 7's $147.2 million debut is 55 percent higher than Captain America: The Winter Soldier's $95 million, which was the previous April record holder. This is also the biggest debut in the franchise thus far, up a whopping 51 percent over Fast & Furious 6. Furious 7 earned $13.3 million on IMAX screens alone, which ranks second all-time for a 2D-only movie behind The Dark Knight Rises.

      Furious 7's phenomenal success can be attributed to a few factors. Coming off Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6, the franchise clearly had a ton of momentum; instead of looking like a step backward, Furious 7 appeared to be the biggest installment yet. Universal also did a nice job pushing the "One Last Ride" tagline, which gave the sense that this may be the last opportunity to see a Fast & Furious movie (which almost certainly isn't the case, but still). It's also likely that the movie got a bump from fans eager to see Paul Walker's final on-screen performance, as he tragically passed away during production in late 2013.

      The movie's audience was split evenly between men (51 percent) and women, and skewed a bit older (56 percent over the age of 25). According to Universal's exit polls, Hispanic moviegoers made up a whopping 37 percent of the audience this weekend.

      Even if Furious 7 falls off quickly—for example, at the rate of the very front-loaded fourth installment—it's still guaranteed to make over $300 million total. With an "A" CinemaScore, strong reviews and zero competition for the next three weeks, it's likely that this plays a bit better than that; a total around $350 million is very possible.

      Furious 7 opened to a stunning $245.1 million overseas this weekend. That's the third-highest international debut ever behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

      In a single weekend, Furious 7 has already earned more overseas than the first four Fast movies made in their entire runs.

      The movie set opening weekend records (in local currency) in 29 markets, including 12 in Latin America. Record-breaking debuts included Mexico ($21.5 million), Brazil ($11.4 million), Taiwan ($10.3 million) and Argentina ($9.3 million). Other major markets include the U.K. ($18.7 million), Germany ($15.9 million), France ($11.4 million), Australia ($11.3 million), South Korea ($8.9 million), Italy ($8.2 million) and Spain ($6.3 million).

      Furious 7 still has to open in China, Japan and Russia, which are all on the way in the next two weeks. Even if it burns off quickly and (somehow) underperforms in those upcoming markets, it still seems like a safe bet to join the $1 billion club.

        Weekend Report: 'Furious 7' Beats 'Blart,' Passes $1.1 Billion Worldwide - Box Office Mojo

        Furious 7 fended off solid newcomers Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Unfriended to top the domestic box office for the third weekend in a row.

        More importantly, the movie had another stunning weekend overseas. Specifically, it continued to do massive business in China, where its earned over $250 million through its first eight days.

        Furious 7 has now grossed $1.15 billion worldwide, which ranks seventh all-time. Even if it falls off quickly from here, it still has a real chance of making it past $1.4 billion by the end of its run.

        Domestically, Furious 7 fell 51 percent to an estimated $29.1 million. In comparison, the last two Fast movies dropped 44 percent and 37 percent at the same point. To date, Furious 7 has earned $294.4 million; it could still reach $350 million, but would need to hold up well against Avengers: Age of Ultron in two weeks.

        Furious 7 continued to do incredible business at the international box office this weekend. The movie added $167.9 million, which brings its total to a stunning $858.3 million.

        In China, it grossed $93.3 million this weekend; through eight days, its earned $250.5 million there. Next weekend, it will likely pass Transformers: Age of Extinction ($320 million) to become the highest-grossing movie ever in the world's second-biggest market.

        Meanwhile, Furious 7 opened to an estimated $6 million in Japan. That's a record for a Fast movie, and is generally speaking a very good debut for an import in this market.

        Furious 7 is now guaranteed to make over $1 billion at the international box office, which would make it the third movie to reach that milestone (after Titanic and Avatar). It is about to face tough competition from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens in most of the world this coming weekend. However, Avengers doesn't reach China until mid-May, which means there's still plenty of money left to earn there.

        Ultimately, it wouldn't be surprising if Furious 7 wound up with around $1.1 billion overseas, and around $350 million at the domestic box office. That would put it in fourth place all-time behind Avatar, Titanic and The Avengers (though it's likely that it soon moves down to fifth place behind Age of Ultron).
