  1. 50% drop is impossible.
  2. Impossible. Not even $1 billion OS is locked, let alone 1.4. And F8 would never have the same legs as JW. The FF franchise is not known for its legs.
  3. Even with the overestimated domestic number, F8 still holds the global opening weekend record. 8th Update, Final: Universal’s final figures for F. Gary Gray’s The Fate of the Furious. $532M worldwide debut, whipping Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ $529M. Broken out that’s $433.2M abroad, beating Jurassic World‘s $316.7M previous foreign record launch, and $98.8M. Thanks to Fate, Uni speeds past the billion mark at the international B.O., making it the second studio to reach that milestone in 2017. That’s 11 years in a row for Uni grossing $1 billion abroad, and it’s the second fastest in regards to getting there after 2015.

  5. I think it will definitely get a bump. Anticipation is high and I guess very few people saw the first one when it was released (I didn't see it). And IMDB shows May 4 (wrong) ---> April 27 and has midnight screenings.
  6. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released here on April 27 (SO EXCITED!!!)
  7. For me... it is one of the best Fast and Furious movie if not the best (F7 had more impact). 7 8 5 6 1 2 3 4
  8. I found it strange that these movies are the most popular here, but I didn't see any hype for Furious 7 and I'm not seeing any hype for this one (in my town). Yet, the lines for F7 opening day in my theatre were huge. And this one should be too.
  9. ‘Fate Of The Furious’ Global Opening Could Leave ‘F7’s $397M+ Debut In The Dust – Box Office Preview by Anthony D'Alessandro and Nancy Tartaglione April 10, 2017 3:55pm BOX OFFICE BREAKING NEWS DWAYNE JOHNSON FURIOUS 7 THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS UNIVERSAL VIN DIESEL Universal Pictures In what has become a tradition, Universal is kicking off the summer in the middle of April with its eighth Fast and Furious title in the 16-year-old franchise, The Fate of the Furious this weekend, and in regards to its theatrical debut, it will be a shot heard around the world with an opening between $375M on the low end and $440M on the high end. Related 'The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins Dwayne Johnson's 'Rampage' Universal Pictures Should Fate of the Furious race past $397.7M, it will easily beat the opening of its predecessor, Furious 7, which was also a global Easter release, and become Universal’s second-biggest global opener after 2015’s Jurassic World ($525M). Without a doubt, the weekend will propel the Fast and Furious franchise beyond the $4 billion mark at the B.O. Through seven titles, it currently stands north of $3.9B. Uni first moved Fast and Furious to April with the 2009 fourth installment Fast and Furious ($70.9M domestic opening, $155M stateside final, $363M global), followed by 2011’s Fast Five ($86.1M, $209.8M, global $626M). Fate of the Furious will be on 20K locations in 63 foreign territories including China, but sans Japan (which bows on April 28), and in U.S./Canada, the film will be the widest pre-summer release ever at an estimated 4,304 venues, besting the 4,242 opening theater count of last Easter’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In sum, Universal’s most ambitious worldwide distribution releases in the studio’s history. The eighth-quel, which is directed by F. Gary Gray, who takes over for F7‘s James Wan, comes with an asterisk at the box office. After the huzzah of F7‘s $147.1M domestic opening, the laws of acclaimed science-fiction film Gravity as they relate to sequels indicate that F8 will ease down. Analysts are forecasting a $100M-$110M over three days in U.S./Canada with previews kicking off Thursday at 7PM. And that’s just normal in regards to the B.O. dip. Overseas is expected to clock more than F7‘s $250.5M with a $275M-$330M debut for F8, which revs up Wednesday eight markets including Australia, France and Korea. By the weekend, foreign will have 688 IMAX screens in the tank with 392 of those in China. Why higher? F7 was impacted by currency fluctuations two years ago, plus that foreign bow came without China and Russia. China is the real diesel in F8‘s tank, because if it really pops, some analysts believe that a $350M-plus foreign opening isn’t out of the question. Folks think the stars would have to truly align everywhere for that to happen — there are other factors to bear in mind including warm, sunny weather in parts of Europe which can slow moviegoing. Anything over Jurassic World’s $316.7M international launch is a new all-time opening record overseas. That film, which bowed later in the year, had China and Russia in its opening suite at $100.1M and $10M, respectively.
  10. I don't care either. I just wanted it to get to 1 billion, which will happen in the next few days. So, I'm more than satisfied.
  11. I think it really depends on the theater. I saw it in 3D and it wasn't dark at all.
