'Furious 7' Zooms Past $500 Million at Global Box Office
The latest installment in the wildly popular "Fast and Furious" franchise landed in the number one spot in every territory in which it debuted last week, topping the box office charts in the U.S. ($147.2 million), Mexico ($21.5 million), and the U.K. ($18.7 million), among many others. It's now the third-biggest international opener of all time, behind only "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2" ($314 million) and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" ($260.4 million).
And according to industry insiders, "Furious 7" is on track to add even more cash to that impressive haul. It's currently figured to make about $60 million domestically this weekend; add that to its current $183.7 domestic total and $343.1 million global total, and it seems there's no stopping this flick.
