The last film of the Fast and the Furious franchise is breaking box office records all over the world.
This late Paul Walker and Vin Diesel movie was the fastest to break the limit of 1 billion dollars worldwide. First released in Australia on April 2, it took only 3 days for the Furious 7 to earn $400 million and 17 days to reach the $1 billion barrier worldwide and it has earned $300 million only in USA and Canada itself. The previous record – 19 days belonged to The Avengers and The Harry Potter franchise.
Currently, the movie is on the seventh place in the Highest-Grossing films list with $1.15 billion earned and Avatar on the first place with $2.7 billion. The soundtrack from F&F 7 – ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa – also breaks records in the music charts. This film is also known as the last performance of Paul Walker, that has died in a car accident in 2013. Because of this, part of the movie was filmed with the help of Paul’s brothers – Cody and Caleb.
Second place is occupied by Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 with Kevin James at the main role. And the third place is being taken by the low budget, social-media themed, but nevertheless – the successful thriller – Unfriended that has earned more than $16 million – 16 times the movie’s small budget.
