‘Furious 7’ Takes #1 Spot at Weekend Box Office


Furious 7, the latest installment in the Fast and the Furious, has taken the #1 spot at the box office this weekend with a record-breaking $143.6 million.

Furious 7‘s opening weekend gross easily outpaced the franchise’s previous titles – Fast and Furious 6 earned $97 million during its first three days on release in 2013 – while the high-octane sequel also set a new record as the biggest ever opening in April, surpassing previous title-holder Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which raked in $95 million over the same weekend a year ago.

Furious 7 was also a big hit globally thanks to a massive $240.4 million take outside the U.S. and Canada.

Back in North America, animated family film Home is a distant number two on the box office chart, earning $27.4 million in its second week on release, while Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart’s comedy Get Hard is at three with $12.9 million.

The film marks Paul Walker’s final appearance in the series after his tragic death in a car crash in November 2013.
