'Fate of the Furious' Debuts with Record International and Worldwide Opening Weekend
by Brad Brevet
 

 
April 16, 2017

It was close, but just by a hair Universal's The Fate of the Furious topped $100 million at the domestic box office, leading the Easter weekend charge and becoming the second 2017 release to top the century mark over its three-day opening. More importantly, on top of its North American debut, the film premiered in over 60 international markets where it brought in a record $432.3 million, resulting in a record $532.5 million worldwide debut.
With an estimated $100.2 million, The Fate of the Furious secured the #1 spot at the domestic box office, delivering on industry expectations. The film scored an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences which were 58% male vs. 42% female. Of that audience, 50% were under the age of 25 and further demographics show the opening weekend audience was made up of 41% Caucasian moviegoers, 26% Hispanic, 19% African American and 11% Asian. This makes for the second time a film in the Fast and Furious franchise has debuted with over $100 million and there are more to come with Fast and Furious 9 planned for 2019 and a tenth installment set for a 2021 release.
Internationally is where the majority of the Fate of the Furious story will be told as it broke the international opening record, previously held by Jurassic World with $316.7 million, as it brought in a massive $432.3 million from 63 international markets. Combined with the $100.2 million domestic opening this gives the film a record $532.5 million worldwide debut, breaking the previous record of $529 million held by none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With this weekend's grosses, the Fast and Furious franchise has now amassed just shy of $4.5 million billion worldwide from all eight of its feature films.
Highlights for the film's international debut begin with the fact it was the #1 film in all 60+ territories where it opened, among which it was the largest opening in 17 of those territories: Argentina, China, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanon, Malaysia, Middle East, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, U.A.E., Venezuela and Vietnam. The largest of all of this weekend's openings is the estimated $190 million the film brought in from China, which is the largest three-day opening weekend of all-time in China and, of course, the biggest Hollywood opening of all-time. Top grossing territories include:
China - $190 million
Mexico - $17.8 million
U.K. and Ireland - $17 million
Russia - $14.1 million
Germany - $13.6 million
Brazil - $12.8 million

That's how you present things. Ok lets see real picture.
Furious 7 did $250mn in 1st Weekend without releasing in China & Russia. Now reduce that $206mn out of F8 and its behind F7 by $25mn.

True blue record openers in Overseas are Avengers, Harry Potter & Star Wars.
