‘Furious 7’ Hits $1.15 Billion Worldwide to Become 7th Highest-Grossing Film Ever

Furious 7” is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time with a worldwide haul of $1.15 billion.

The fast cars follow-up topped foreign charts last weekend, remaining the No. 1 film in the world for the third week in a row. Internationally, “Furious 7” made $167.9 million across 67 territories.

It is Universal’s highest-grossing film worldwide.

“Furious 7” opened in its final foreign territory, putting up $6 million in Japan. The big story, however, is China, where “Furious 7” has made $250.5 million in its first eight days of release. It ranks as the second highest-grossing American film to hit the People’s Republic, behind only “Transformers: Age of Extinction’s” $320 million haul. Of course, the “Transformers” sequel benefited from filming extensively in China, an advantage “Furious 7” did not enjoy.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Home” tied for second place on the foreign charts with “Ever Since We Love,” an adaptation of Chinese novel “Grow.” Both films earned $10.4 million. “Home” has earned $271.6 million since debuting in March, ranking as a much-needed win for the struggling DreamWorks Animation, a studio that has been buffeted by film flops and failed corporate sales.

Disney’s “Cinderella” scored a fourth place finish, earning $7.5 million and bringing its global total to $457.7 million.

Sony’s “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” snagged fifth position on the charts, bringing in $7.1 million. The comedy about a hapless shopping center cop earned $34.1 million total in its first weekend in theaters.
