"Furious 8" also saw the advantage of the biggest three-day bow in history and the top opening ever for a Hollywood title by opening to a massive 192.1 million Dollars and debuted at No. 1 in all 63 foreign markets. Then Jurassic World and Star Wars entered the race and left the rest of the 2015 blockbusters in the dust. It includes the $100.2 Million in domestic premiere and the $432.2 Million overseas.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Vin Diesel have reportedly agreed to appear in the next Fast And Furious movie.

The eighth installment of "The Fast and the Furious" franchise made history over the weekend with the biggest global opening ever for a film. This number in China can set a record as box office record for a foreign film which is now set by Furious 7 at $390 million in 2015.

According to CNN, Fate also broke box office records for bringing in the biggest worldwide opening in movie history.

Comcast Corp.'s (CMCSA) Universal Pictures, one of the production companies of the movie, projected on Sunday that "The Fate of the Furious" would garner up to $532.5 million across the world over the holiday weekend.

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.
