'Furious 7' becomes China’s highest-grossing film of all time

Posted on

Add Furious 7’s Chinese box-office numbers to its long list of records broken: It’s officially China’s biggest movie ever. Bringing in a total of $323 million, it breaks the $319 million record set by Transformers: Age of Extinction. In other words, Furious 7 has made more money in China that it’s earned in the United States ($320 million).

Not only is it the first April film to make more than $100 million in its opening weekend in the U.S., but it’s also the fastest live-action film to bring in more than $1 billion worldwide. Furious 7 has been creeping up the international box office charts, and after hitting a worldwide total of $1.32 billion this weekend, it became a bigger global hit than Frozen.

Furious 7 is still holding strong in North America, too. It’s held on to the number one spot since its April 3 release, and it brought in $17.8 million this weekend. After 24 days in theaters, the film is $100 million ahead of the box-office pace set by the last film in the franchise, Fast & Furious 6.
