‘Fate of the Furious’ opens at $533 million, the biggest global box office to date

Here’s a fun piece of trivia: The Fate of the Furious made more money than the nine other movies behind it in the weekend box office Top 10.

Or how about this one: based on current estimates, The Fate of the Furious is the owner of the biggest worldwide box office opening of all time, with $532.5 million. It comes in just ahead of previous record-holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which opened in 2015 with $529 million.

Universal’s latest physics-mocking installment in a series about fast cars and hand-operated torpedoes comes to an estimated $100.2 million. Assuming that number holds, it’s enough for the second-biggest opening in franchise history.

Furious 7, which marked the late series stalwart Paul Walker’s final Fast appearance, beats Fate by a wide margin. The 2015 release, which also opened in April, picked up $147.2 million in its first three days.
