After a long wait and a heartbreaking delay after the passing of Paul Walker, Furious 7 is finally here and it’s breaking box office records! Vin Diesel and the gang are going to have a lot to celebrate after Sunday’s final totals are in. So far the flick is on track to be the best April opening ever (topping Captain America: Winter Soldier) and could beat the record for highest grossing pre-summer movie – beating out The Hunger Games’ gross of $152 million in 2012.
Furious 7 is also enjoying huge international success this weekend! In just two days it has brought in over $60 million and was the biggest opener ever for Universal in Australia, Brazil, Italy and others! I think it’s safe to say that this one is going to beat Fast 6 for sure! I hope the stars get a percentage of that backend profit because they’ll be making some serious bucks!
I can’t wait to see the movie this weekend! I’m buying my tickets ahead of time since most of the theaters are selling out like crazy! I’m also bringing along some Kleenex in my pocket and probably skipping the mascara! I’ve heard it’s a ton of fun all the way through but I know I’ll be teary knowing this was Paul’s last project before his tragic accident.
Are you planning to see it this weekend? Or will you wait for things to die down?
