'Furious 7' speeding to record-breaking $150M opening #Furious7

Film Title: Furious 7Continuing the series’ runaway success, ‘Furious 7’ is going to shatter April box office records and take the early lead for the year’s best debut, according to the latest box office forecasts.

The film, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and the late Paul Walker, was already slated to knock off ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s” previous record-holding $95 million opening, which was set last year on the same weekend. Now it appears the early estimates were considerably off after a $67.3 million Friday haul.

Film Title: Furious 7‘Furious 7’ will easily surpass the $97.3 million debut of ‘Fast and Furious 6,’ which is the series’ highest overall grosser with $238 million. 

It will now knock off ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ as the 9th highest debut of all time.

Internationally, the news is just as stellar as the film should bring in $250 million worldwide by the end of the weekend. ‘Furious 6’ earned $788 million worldwide and that seems likely to become No. 2 within a matter of weeks.

How soon do you think Universal Studios will want Diesel and company to start cranking out ‘Furious 8?’
