The Fate of the Furious Is Speeding Towards A Serious Opening Weekend

The celluloid collected Rs 14.00 crore on opening day and witnessed growth in its business on following day. According to the studio, Friday's global gross is $112.1 million for an early total of $194.8 million. Raking the whopping amounts in first two to three weeks of their releases, all parts of the movie have ranked well in the list of highest grossing Hollywood films. This will be the biggest worldwide weekend by a large margin, beating the previous record holder, Universal's Jurassic World, which tallied $316.7 million. Universal spent an estimated $250 million on "The Fate of the Furious" and is already going to see profits by the end of the weekend. The early totals have pushed the 16-year-old series above the $4 billion mark overall. But, if you'll pardon the trite metaphor, when "The Fate of the Furious" is firing on all cylinders, particularly as it nears its ridiculously entertaining action climax, it's a real blast.

The 559th installment in the Fast and the Furious movie series is upon us, and it's called The Fate of the Furious.

So far the film, which opened Thursday night in North America, has brought in $194.8 million worldwide, including $45.6 million on opening day in the United States. The three-day weekend estimate is $192 million for the biggest three-day opening of all time in the market.

In the racing film, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Charlize Therone, and Jason Statham, Gray focussed on extending the story from a fresh perspective.
