With $143.6 million from the States and $240.4 million internationally, Furious 7 has comfortably claimed the highest-ever April debut, and with major markets such as China, Russia and Japan still to come and little competition until Avengers: Age of Ultron at the end of the month, it looks like the latest chapter of the high-octane action »

Furious 7 rode into theaters this weekend, smashing box office records to the tune of $143.6 million domestically, the highest opening weekend in April history. The action-packed sequel also took in over $240.4 million internationally, the biggest international opening in Universal Studios history, with a worldwide tally of $384 million in just the first weekend alone. The domestic opening weekend gross stands as the ninth highest all time, just above The Twilight Saga: New Moon's tally of $142.8 million.
Furious 7 bested its predecessor, 2013's Fast & Furious 6's opening weekend gross of $97.3 million internationally and $162 million internationally. Director James Wan's sequel, which marks the final film from late star Paul Walker, took in $61.1 million on Saturday in just over 10,000 international theaters, Universal's highest-grossing Saturday of all time. The sequel was the #1 movie in 64 international territories, 26 of which were the highest-grossing opening weekends in those countries' history, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, »
“Furious 7″ torched the global box office this weekend, pulling in $384 million and tearing up the record book in the process.
The “Fast and Furious” franchise is a rare series that continues to build momentum more than a decade after the first film debuted. It continues to add new members, such as Jason Statham and Kurt Russell, to the ensemble cast and ups the ante around its action set pieces (you will believe a Lykan HyperSort can fly).
The movie also drew curiosity about the way the series would handle the death of one of its stars, Paul Walker, in a 2013 car crash while filming was ongoing.
The mixture of offscreen tragedy and onscreen pyrotechnics created a perfect storm, putting “Furious 7″ on track to be one of the year’s highest-grossing releases and enabling the series about fast cars and the criminals who drive them to reach a new pinnacle. »

It was full speed ahead for Furious 7 this week, which obliterated the April record at the North American box office with one of the biggest debuts of all time. The sixth sequel to The Fast and the Furious opened to an eye-popping $143.6 million, the ninth largest opening in domestic box office history. That was about 50% higher than Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which earned $95 million to take the monthly record on this weekend last year. The monstrous opening was also the third biggest weekend take outside of summer, behind the first two Hunger Games films.
The film began its muscular debut with a whopping $67.3 million on Good Friday, including $15.8 million from Thursday evening shows. Furious 7 dropped an expected 31% to earn a remarkable $46.3 million on Saturday and is predicted to drop 35% on Easter Sunday to amass another $30 million.

The companion series to The Walking Dead has launched its first teaser trailer, setting the stage for its summer premiere later this year. Brandishing its recently-confirmed title – Fear The Walking Dead – the spinoff began to generate pre-release buzz during last night’s Walking Dead season 5 finale. The debut teaser was broadcast in a commercial break for the show-stopping season closer, offering fans a look at another U.S. city devastated by the undead.
Unlike AMC’s flagship zombie serial, which kicked off after the virulent flesh-eating disease had struck, Fear The Walking Dead will commence on the cusp of the zombie outbreak. Los Angeles, California serves as the backdrop for another clutch of survivors who must face the perils of the unwashed, unkempt and undead masses keen to sink their teeth into human flesh.
