Box Office: ‘Furious 7′ Debuts to $384 Million Globally


Furious 7″ left all its competitors in the dust with a scorching global debut of $384 million.
The latest installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise kicked off in 63 international markets, as well as the U.S. and Canada. It marked Universal Pictures’ biggest wide release ever, unspooling in 14,009 theaters around the world, including Imax and large format locations.
It ranks as the fourth highest-grossing global opening in history behind “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” ($483.2 million), “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” ($394.4 million) and “The Avengers ($392.5 million).
The opening breakdown was $143.6 million stateside bow and a $240.4 million international kick-off. It’s a particularly impressive international figure, because “Furious 7″ has yet to open in such major markets at Russia, Japan and China.
Analysts Sunday told Variety that they expect “Furious 7″ will become the first chapter in the series to hit $1 billion.
“Why stop at a billion,” quipped Nick Carpou, Universal’s president of domestic distribution.
