'Furious 8' breaks global box office record by reeling $532million

Fate of the Furious, the eight in the Fast and Furious franchise has broken the global box office record by reeling in $532 million this easter weekend.

This is marginally higher than the $529m (£421.8m) taken by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The film opened with $100.2m in the US and $432.3 everywhere else led by $190 million in China.



Its nearest competitor was The Boss Baby, which took a further $15.5m to land second place while Beauty and the Beast pulled $13.6 million over the weekend. Beauty and the Beast also added to its impressive worldwide haul this weekend, bringing in an additional $22 million internationally as its worldwide cume climbs to $1.043 billion, making it the 22nd largest worldwide release of all-time.

The largest of all of this weekend's openings is the estimated $190 million the film brought in from China, which is the largest three-day opening weekend of all-time in China and, of course, the biggest Hollywood opening of all-time. Top grossing territories include:

China - $190 million
Mexico - $17.8 million
U.K. and Ireland - $17 million
