It seems everyone loves them some Fast and the Furious. 

The latest installment in the franchise, The Fate of the Furious, had a HUGE opening weekend.

With $532 million, it has been dubbed the BIGGEST global opening in history.

The 8th movie takes the title from 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which brought in $529 million worldwide opening weekend.

The Fate of the Furious did have an upper hand on The Force though – it premiered in China first, while the latter was opened a month later in the second largest movie market in the world.

In it’s second weekend, the film brought in $38.7 million, bringing the domestic ten-day total to $163.6 million.

Globally, the film has raked in $908.4 million, with a whopping $318 million from China.

Congrats to the cast and everyone involved in making the movie such a smash success – it’s now the biggest movie int he WORLD.

This proves one thing – not every sequel (or 8th sequel) is worse than the first movie!
