‘Fast and Furious 7’ breaks $60m record in 2-days of opening


Universal’s Furious 7 has broken records with a staggering $60million earnings in just two days of opening.

According to reports by THR, the movie continues to build momentum at the Friday box office for a weekend debut in the $135 million-$138 million range, the largest opening in North America since fall 2013.

The flick featuring late Paul Walker’s final participation, is opening around the globe this weekend – after earning a record-breaking $60 million internationally on Wednesday and Thursday – for a possible worldwide debut approaching or crossing $300 million by the end of Easter Sunday.

Getting the widest release in Universal’s history, Furious 7 played domestically in 4,003 theaters on Good Friday, while it has booked more than 10,500 screens in 63 territories internationally- although it won’t open in China, Japan and Russia until later.

The report further stated that Furious 7 is likewise poised to nab the biggest opening of 2015 to date because it will easily beat the $121.9 million launch of The Hunger Games Mockingjay — Part 1 in November 2104, making it the largest three-day opening since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158 million) in November 2013.
