'Fast and the Furious' on road to record global debut

The plan is to make two more movies; [it's] just all of us kind of putting our heads together and coming together with something that we think is very special.

The action thriller stars Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, and Vin Diesel, who said he felt "grateful, humbled and blessed" after the film's success.

Fortune also reported that The Fate of the Furious' global record opening is better than the domestic numbers, revealing that worldwide movie market has a significant impact most especially to countries like China.

The pair hit headlines during the filming of the eighth instalment, The Fate of the Furious, when the wrestler-turned-actor called out one of his "candy a-" male co-stars for alleged unprofessional behaviour.

It's revealed at the end of Fast & Furious 6 that Statham's character Deckard Shaw has killed Han (Sung Kang), a member of the tight-knit racing crew led by Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto. In China, The Fate of the Furious sold a record $190 million in tickets over the weekend.




However, the film opened to just USD100.2 million (RM441 million) in North America, which is a significant drop from the previous film, Furious 7 that collected USD147.2 million (RM649 million).

The former music video director broke that mark when The Fate of the Furious earned an estimated a $532.5 million box office opening around the world.

"Maybe next time "Star Wars" should film in Cleveland".

"Furious 7" ultimately posted the best opening weekend figure of "The Fast and the Furious" series in the US, with $143.6 million compared to "Fast & Furious 6's" $97.4 million. He died in a auto crash while the film was still in production.

Meanwhile, The Boss Baby comes in at number two with $15.5 million, while Disney's Beauty and the Beast holds in third with $13.5 million. It is all due to the announcement that Universal made for the movie saying a ninth and tenth installments are going to happen for the years 2019 and 2021, respectively. The recent installments have improved in quality, receiving much higher scores with critics than the first four films.
