Yes it’s true!
Tyrese, Ludacris, F. Gary Gray, The Rock ‘Fate Of The Furious’ made $100 Million In The Box Office.
According to Deadline reports,e Sunday 8:40AM & 6:30 AM: The Fate of the Furious is expected to cross $100.1M this weekend. This is according to rival studios and early morning estimates.
Late last night, for a minute, it appeared that F8 would miss the century mark with a three-day between $98.5M-$99.3M. This morning, box office analysts see a clear road ahead for the eighth-title.
Fun Fact… Director F. Gary Gray also made history.
At $100.1M, Fate of the Furious marks a record opening for an African-American director with F. Gary Gray beating his previous three-day of $60.2M set by Straight Outta Compton. F8 is also the best opening ever for Charlize Theron, beating Hancock ($62.6M), and it’s the second best debut stateside for both Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.
If the worldwide estimate of $534 million holds, “The Fate of the Furious” will break the $528.9 million record by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Even if it falls just short of that when the final numbers come in, it’s still likely to beat the $525 million set by “Jurassic World.
