The Fate of the Furious breaks global box office record

The eighth film in the action thriller franchise took an estimated $532.5m globally over Easter weekend. The figure makes it the strongest worldwide debut ever – marginally overtaking the $529m taken by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

However, the film’s US takings were down sharply on the previous movie. Furious 7 opened with $147.2m in the US when it was released in 2015 – but the latest instalment of the series debuted with $100.2m. The Fate of the Furious – titled Fast & Furious 8 in some territories – stars Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, who said he felt “grateful, humbled and blessed” after the film’s success.
