Universal's The Fate of the Furious has officially crossed $1 billion at the international box office (via Deadline).
The milestone comes just a month after the film hit $1 billion worldwide. The eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise is currently sitting at $1.2 billion worldwide, with $221 million of that coming from the domestic box office. The film currently stands as the 11th highest-grossing film of all time globally.
The Fate of the Furious opened April 14 with a record-shattering $532.5 million worldwide — that’s the largest global debut of all time — and taking the top spot at the box office in every market. It held on to No. 1 domestically, internationally and globally in its first two weekends of release. Most of the film's profit hails from China where the film had the largest three-day opening ever in that market with $199.1 million and has grossed $387.4 million to date, becoming China’s highest grossing foreign film of all-time.
Directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton), the film finds Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto coerced by a cyberterrorist named Cipher (Charlize Theron) to turn against his team. They’re joined by franchise veterans Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell, and newcomers Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren.
The Fate of the Furious will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on July 11th.
